#GamingBytes: Know the best PC games featuring Marvel characters (ranked)
Marvel has a roster of thousands of characters but only a few can carry a video game on their super-shoulders. Over the years, a number of games featuring Marvel characters have released, some have been embarrassingly bad but others have really shone. While even these come with their flaws, here are some of the best games featuring characters from the Marvel Universe.
'Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite'- It will grow on you
Considered an average game by many, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite finds its saving grace in the form of character design and flashy combos. Released in 2017, it's the sixth main entry in the Marvel vs. Capcom series and features popular characters like Ryu, Iron Man, Sigma, Black Panther, Chun-Li, Ultron and more. The fighting game (Deluxe Edition) is available on Steam for Rs. 3,499.
Team up with multiple heroes in 'Marvel: Ultimate Alliance'
This game did crossovers before they were cool! Featuring an extensive character list from the various superhero teams of the Marvel Universe, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is an action role-playing video game that released in 2006. Its fun story mode can be played by forming four-man teams from multiple customizable characters. The game was removed from Steam so buying it can be a little tricky.
Hulk: Pretty sure most Indian millennials have played it once
Remember the movie Hulk? Nope, not talking about the Marvel Universe one. I am talking about the 2003 film featuring Eric Bana. The film released with a tie-in game and it was, well, incredible! It released when most millennials were experiencing PC games for the first time and I'm sure most of you must have played the demo version. It's not available on Steam.
Deadpool: Experience a profanity-laden, vulgar game like no other
No offense to the Ryan Reynolds movies, but they have got nothing on this game! It captures the "Merc With The Mouth" at his best (which is actually at his worst) and ends up being a fantastic game. The gameplay can get repetitive but the story, the treatment, and even the graphics are top-notch (it also features Cable!) Sadly, it's been retired from Steam.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine- If only the movie was this good
Usually, game adaptations are not as good as their source movies. X-Men Origins: Wolverine, however, is the exact opposite of its source, and in the best way possible. It's pure mayhem and makes you feel like a part of the violent, zany universe as you play the titular character, engaging in rage-filled realistic violence, finishing his story. It can be bought on Amazon, here.
