Why SUPERMAN games don’t work

Nikyle's Two Pence

Will a Superman game ever be as good as Arkham city?

Ever played a good Superman game? Nope, Me neither. Why is that? Batman’s had much success in the video game world as of late and DC have also had other gaming success with DC Universe games and the recent fighting games Injustice. However, when it comes to Superman, things don’t tend to go as well.

While they have tired, many times, Superman is well-known for having a terrible relationship with games. Superman 64 is widely considered to be the worst video game of all time. So what exactly is the problem?
