Is Arkham City better than Arkham Asylum ?

Just purchased Batman: Arkham City . . . And was just wondering if your guys thought the first or second one was better. . . Not sure if I made the right decision

Yes, you absolutely made the right decision. What Rocksteady have done with Batman is like what Sun Tzu did to war. Arkham City is definitely a keeper of a game. It didn't win tons of Game of the Year awards without merit. That being said, however, if you have not played Arkham that one first. Its my personal favorite of the series, and shouldn't be missed.

Arkham Asylum is the best in the series. If you skipped it to play Arkham City first, you might want to reconsider going back and picking up Asylum.

Arkham City is good, but Asylum delivers a more atmospheric and immersive experience and is just all around better.

Thanks to Xerofox for the romantically rambunctious signature!

Asylum is already very good, but City is way better. More missions, better story, and of course better freeflow combat system.

I usually play a series from the first one to the last one in chronical order so that I don't face the 'cannot go back' disappointment.
All my played games have exactly 1000G.

1st 1000G: Batman Arkham Asylum (PC)
