Batman: Arkham City Sets Guinness World Record

Posted on January 23, 2012 AT 09:08am

THE BUZZ: Batman: Arkham City has been awarded a Guinness World Record in the 2012 Gamer’s Edition.

The game walked away with the ’Most Utterly Evil Supervillains’ award in the latest version of the book. “Batman Arkham City wins ‘Most Utterly Evil Supervillains’ record in the Guinness World Records 2012 – Gamer’s Edition,” a tweet reads.

EGM’s TAKE: It’s a weird record to set (okay, a completely lame award at all), but going on how many villains Rocksteady managed to squeeze into the game it’s no surprise. Many were worried that there would be too many and therefore not enough screen time would be available for each, however the team managed to pull it off perfectly. The question is, where do the team go from here?

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
