Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment (also known as WB Games) is a video game division of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Good Qualities

  1. They're behind the modern Mortal Kombat, Middle-earth, Batman Arkham and LEGO series.
  2. They saved the Mortal Kombat series from being killed off. They also rebranded WB Games Chicago into NetherRealm Studios to develop the reboot series.
  3. They saved Avalanche Software from closing their doors after Disney Interactive Studios shut down in 2016.
  4. They allowed their studios to take big risks at making entirely new games based on popular books or comics:
    • Rocksteady Studios took a huge gamble at creating a new Batman video game series in reinventing the superhero genre, with the result really paying off.
    • Monolith Productions created Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor which was not only a great game but helped to repopularised The Lord of the Rings franchise.
    • When Warner Bros. aquired TT Games, they allowed them to create LEGO games based off the DC Superheroes which led to them being even more successful than before.
  5. After Midway Games went bankrupt and closed their doors, Warner Bros. payed respect to them by releasing the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection which includes the original 3 games in the series.
  6. Instead of releasing a crossover game between Mortal Kombat and DC Universe, as was the case with Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, Warner Bros. decided to release an actual fighting game based on the DC characters. That game would eventually become Injustice: Gods Among Us, which even spawned a franchise and thus a sequel was also released.

Bad Qualities

Much like Ubisoft and Sega, they still do bad things too, which led them to have their own page on the Crappy Games Wiki, click here.
