Of all the games I’ve spent an unhealthy amount of time playing this year, none have come close to being as fun and joyful to play as the recently released Marvel’s Spider-Man. It’s basically like the developers figured out how to make the best Arkham game ever with a hero that is fun and hopeful instead of bleak and ‘roided out. The story is absolutely fantastic Naughty Dog-quality stuff. The combat is silky smooth. There are hundreds of amusing collectible side-quests, and web slinging through New York is the best traversal system I’ve ever experienced in a video game. Most importantly, though, it has a killer photo mode that I spent entirely too much time playing with when I should have been saving citizens in peril. Instead of writing a lengthy post detailing why I love this game so much, I thought I’d just show you with some of the 100 or so pictures I took while having a blast.
