Batman Arkham Sequal idea
My idea of what could/should happen in the next rocksteady batman game; This game should be more focused on mob wars, with characters like two face and penguin taking more of a back seat role to run their organisation. And the new character black mask coming into things with a more frontal approach to running a mob. Also the falconis and moronis will be involved in this all out turf war spreading over Gotham. But all these gang leaders want is to run the city and not to destroy it, it is only when batman looks further into the disagreements that he finds there is a higher authority sending orders or advice and poisoning the minds of the leaders trying to send each other into the ground. This authority you later find out to be scarecrow, who reveals his plan to turn gothams most feared gang leaders against themselves to send the cities inhabitants into a spiralling world of fear and hate. Batman must set out to take down each mob leaders one by one whilst trying to uncover more about Dr. Cranes crazy plan. But who will look after the civilians who helplessly walk the street at night, vulnerable to the aggressive thug life running the street ? Enter Nightwing and Robin. With full access to specific parts of Gotham city instructed to wipe the streets clean of bad guys and keep them safe while batman goes after the big shots. This would mean areas where only robin or only Nightwing could go, but batman could go over all of it. And robin and Nightwing can do side quests but not the main story line. You could be able to switch anytime during the game depending on whether you wanted to search deep into the hearts of gothams most fierce, or just do some good old fashioned crime fighting ( but of course you could do either as the dark night if you wished).
But anyway, back to the main story, batman has to take out each of the gangs and put a stop to scarecrows scheme, whilst also worrying about hush getting Bruce Wayne involved in the mob fighting, and riddler trying to make a game of the whole thing. It's a lot for batman to handle so there will be more weight put on the shoulders of Tim drake and dick Grayson. Azrael and his clan will be ever watchful but not get to involved as they will have a more religious view of letting things run their course. Old characters like gordan and alfred ( and maybe even freeze) will return to lend the bat a hand if he needs it.
But here comes the good part, just when the dark knight gets close enough to scarecrow that he thinks he can end it all comes; The Joker.
Very near the end of the game with not much involvement ( purely because of mark hamills idea of moving away from his joker character), but still a massive shock for batman. He reveals how he managed to live on and he also reveals how he has been playing crane like a puppet the whole time to get what he wanted and how the whole thing was just so funny. A short time later the bat conquers evil again and stops joker and scarecrow. But still leaving the streets with a lot of clearing up to do (playable after game completion). But batman still wonders where Harley has been through this whole charade? But it's is only after the credits role that you are shown Harley in an old warehouse, presumably far from Gotham, singing a sweet lullaby, and then finally turns round to reveal... The baby.
Side mission ideas:
Saving people from their upcoming birthdays or anniversaries etc.
Ivy & Croc:
Ivy poisoning crocs sewer or croc eating through Ivy's plants and you have to choose which one to help
--> if it ain't broke, why fix it ?
some messed up little fantasy or something you have to save people from
With all the replica scar faces joker had made, the ventriloquist gets angry and threatens to kill again if one of the crime fighters don't hunt down and destroy the 'imposters'
