9 of the best PS3 games for really losing the plot – Did we ever tell you the definition of insanity?


Scarecrow – Batman Arkham Asylum

Suddenly stripping you of all your hard-won Bagmacguffins, the Scarecrow sections of Batman: Arkham Asylum are triggered by exposure to the hooded villain’s hallucinogenic gas (although spending your adult life in caves dressed as a bat probably doesn’t help). Battling to take back control of Bats’ mind is represented by these tense stealth sections, in which you scurry from cover to cover, desperately trying to avoid detection by the towering Scarecrow. Mess it up and you go what psychaitrists call “mad as a lobster orchestra”, forever.
