The all 3 games should be tied storyline so you might want to think about getting the others as well if you like it. Though i may be wrong here.

They are, but aren't. As in, they involve lots of the same characters and there is progression in time for Batman and his nemeses and friends, but the storylines don't really depend on each other, they stand more or less alone. Each game introduces plenty of exposition, so you won't be lost unless you literally have no idea who Batman and Co. are, and you'll probably be lost no matter which game you start on in that case

I will say the gameplay and tech has progressed a lot, so starting with City or Origin might make Arkham Asylum seem a little ugly and bland if you get around to playing it down the line.

I've heard that Origins is the worst of the 3. I haven't played it of course, so I have no idea, that's just what I've heard. What is different from City to Origins, if anything? I liked Asylum, I got about 3 hours into City and got bored of it, and haven't played Origins yet (and probably won't).

I'd like that the Asylum team to make a Superman game. No clue if the same team made all 3 games or not, but I liked Asylum.

speaking of superman i'm in the middle of playing superman 64 I got passed the rings on stage 1 but stage 2 is even more stupid and confusing and the punch mechanics are as bad as I have ever seen.

I got the Batman game which came out before Origins for rent. I heard they were supposed to be really good, so I threw it a download.

Basically, my first thoughts were :-

This game is like a slightly weaker lovechild of Tenchu and Assassins Creed.
HOW THE FUK DO I FIND MR FREEZE?
I'm getting damn sick of these guys talking on radio.
This level is completely unfamiliar at all times.
Why am I fighting so unrealistically?
Why am I buying upgrades? These cnts work for me!
How come I'm not Bruce Wayne at all?
Why does anyone choose to live in Gotham City?
Man this town could use Judge Dredd.

At no point did I think "Man this is an amazing game". I know the ending was all unexpected and stuff, but then they ruined it by bringing the character back in the next game with Origins so it was stupid anyways.

If you didn't like City, you probably won't like Origins. The gameplay is almost identical, as is the large city map style, methods of travel, tons of little micromission content and collectibles. There is some gadget variation from City, but the basics are all still there. The combat is a little deeper with more options. It is definitely buggier, unfortunately. I didn't really see many bugs in Asylum or City but I ran into several strange ones with this title. Only one showstopper that was patched very quickly, but even minor bugs, like for example a thug who can't be targeted at all and just follows you around acting like he wants to fight you, can have a negative effect on immersion. I have a feeling this will continue to be shored up as time goes on though. Chalk it up to a rushed release, as I don't see how these made it past QA.

That said it had some strong points. I felt that a couple of the bossfights (Deathstroke in particular) were as good or better than anything in Asylum or City. Getting to roleplay a young Batman as he meets later nemeses for the first time was fun. Alfred has a much larger part than previous games (as he is still very much a mentor at this point) and gives Bruce some good verbal lashings. The detective system used to reconstruct crime scenes was very robust and satisfying.

Hmm, so basically just glitches? That's not that bad. The way people make it sound, Origin seems like a crap game compared to the others. That's typical for gamers though I suppose.

I didn't like it (City) because the open world bored me. I like open world games (Skyrim/fallout/Brutal Legend/Sleeping Dogs/etc), but the world just bored me in City. Granted I was like 3-4 hours into the game (maybe more), but it just didn't entertain me like it should have. People seem to like it better than Asylum, but I feel the linear world in Asylum suits the game better and kept me having more fun.

Yeah it fits into the Assassins Creed and LA Noire category for me. Open World is the way to go, but you need distinction. I right now could probably draw the entire of GTA 3. I couldn't name a thing from any of those games. They just don't stand out or have anything to note or remember.
