Game Theory: Batman: Arkham Asylum

We’re putting Joker, Poison Ivy, and the rest of Arkham’s criminals on the Freudian couch to diagnose their mental disorders. But are they really crazy or better off in jail? Find out this week on Game Theory.

Every Tuesday, we separate the fact from the fiction in some of your favorite video games. Learn off-the-wall info while we look in-depth at the designer’s decisions for old, new, and forgotten gems. Think Mythbusters for gaming!

About MatPat13

They say that knowledge is power. And Nintendo encourages you to “play with power.” So shouldn’t you be playing…with knowledge? MatPat is an information addict. To him, no trivia is too trivial. That’s why his show Game Theory runs the gamut from FPS to RPG, from the abnormal psych of Batman to the zoology of Frogger and every system and subject in between. Want an expert in plumbing as it relates to Mario? How about time travel in Chrono Trigger? Ever wonder about real-world Raptures or Mjolnir armor? MatPat has got you covered. He likes to consider himself the Mythbusters of gaming. So if anyone from Discovery Channel is watching, feel free to give him a call.
