Ok, by now I believe most of you must have played the Batman Arkham games by now. These two games have both gotten high amounts of critical praise and of course, they've made tons of money.
But one thing I've noticed in both games is that some of the characters mention other locations in the DCU. For example, in Arkham Asylum, one of the thugs mentions that he has a cousin in Metropolis (Supermans home town).
But it doesn't stop there, Metropolis is brought up yet again in Arkham City by Talia ah Ghul, when she is encountered in the game for the first time. And it's also revealed that Hugo Strange had plans to build a free roam prison in Metropolis and Keystone (Flash's hometown) similar to the one in Gotham, plus one of the thugs can be heard mentioning Wonder Woman.
And it gets even better, in the Deadshot arc of Arkham Unhinged, you can see members of the suicide squad, including Captain Boomerang and Captain Cold (Flash's bad guys) and one of the news papers in Arkham Asylum reference the Injustice Gang.
So with all these references to other heroes and villains in the DCU I was wondering. What if there was a DC Videogame universe? Think about it, DC once ruled television screens with the DCAU, and Marvel is currently ruling the box office with its cinematic universe, but so far, the big two have completely conquered a third medium, video games. Sure we might have seen some good games from the big two such as the Arkham Games, The Amazing Spider-Man, or Marvel Vs Capcom, but so far none of them had a series of games that shared a continuity.
I think this would be a perfect chance for DC to start up a new universe just like Batman The Animated Series gave birth to the DCAU two decades ago.
Here are the games ideas that I'll give descriptions of Later:
Wonder Woman: Warrior
Flash: Speed Force
Green Lantern: Cosmic Protector
Static Shock: Gang War
Teen Titans: Requiem
Aquaman: War of Atlantis
Cyborg: Technical Tyranny
Batman Arkham Gotham [aka Arkham 3]
Justice League: Legacy
What do you guys think of something like this?
