From arcade cabinets to the homes of millions of gamers to the main stage at EVO, the Marvel universe has invaded gaming through so many different genres, it wouldn’t be crazy if you started to mistake them with the Chitauri. Ha! Okay, no matter how cheesy that Avengers metaphor may have been, you can’t deny how appropriate it was with the movie’s sequel on the horizon. Avengers: Age of Ultron is out in just a short few days, and what better way to celebrate than to assemble some of the best Marvel video games to ever grace our living rooms?
