I only just finished Marvel’s Spider-Man, but it’s already become one of my favourite games of the year. It’s faithfulness to, not just the original source material, but so many other aspects of the franchise is one of the many things that made me love the game.

But then again, being a capable writer is irrelevant if you want to get paid for doing it on the internet for the most part.
Going forward with this part of the list I’ll probably get into spoilers in these entries. Don’t know if I mentioned that in the last one, probably important to know. But that’d be implied in a post like this surely.
