IMO the definitive Batman game is Ubisoft's Batman: Vengeance.

Not that I've played loads, but Arkham City is easily the best Batman game I've played, it may not be retro but it's the best.

Loved Batman:Caped Crusader (ocean) on C64-Really captured the comic book feel with the graphical style (comic windows) and mix of fistycuffs and detective work
Totally this. Never beat it but it was a wonderful looking game with a great puzzle solving style a lot like we saw later in Point n Click games :)

Batman based on the 1989 film for the Amiga. It was iconic and just a really well implemented game, especially considering it was based on a film(and a lot of later film based games weren't that great). Just some really well thought out stages for the game(e.g. the car chases, the platform sections, etc.). Plus, JAMMMMMMMM(yeah, I know that's been mentioned here before) - the little cheat to help you out; everyone seems to remember that. :lol: :D

Loved this game though even with the solution out of Amstrad Action magazine I could still never finish it. It's seriously hard.
