Must List: We pick 'Batman: Arkham Asylum,' you pick...?

Posted on

At EW.com, we’re often accused of beating products and properties to death. If it’s not too much Megan Fox, it’s too much Mad Men or District 9; it’s always something that we smother with simply too much attention. But hello, there’s a reason for that: Some stuff is simply fantastic! Prepare to hate me for suggesting videogame Batman: Arkham Asylum, which hits stores this week to RAVE reviews, as our latest Must. While making the best Batman game ever wasn’t so huge a challenge, the Asylum team did one better and simply made a great GAME — combining elements of stealth, action, and platform genres — one that’s in serious contention for “Game of the Year” honors. Bat-tastic!

As they’re wont to do, the tables now turn and we hand over YOUR chance to nominate (and defend; defense is key) a must-watch/play/read/check out/do entry from the world of popular culture. Don’t forget your e-mail address, in case we decide to use your submission in the magazine! Deadline is Thursday, Aug. 27 at noon ET.
