They definitely were. The way the areas were designed, the way various systems in the world combined to create a cohesive whole and its fantastic pacing are fantastic.

Nope. They were excellent games, but not top-of-their-class in Game Design.  

They are among the best designed games of the past two gens, which is what I really intended to say.

They definitely weren’t the pinnacle of good game design. They were well made games, though. Just weren’t for everyone (like any other game).

A little bit childish isn't it, saying someone has no taste because they don't like the same games as you.

Spiderman and Batman are in the same vein and Spidey takes a lot from the Arkham games, and does most of it worse. You can't call it fun and Arkham boring at the same time, when its a similar and worse game than Arkham City.

There are very few good superhero games though. So, what this really means is that Spidey beat Arkham. That's still impressive, but the context is important.

Infamous is fantastic. It may not sell well but its the true contender for best superhero series apart from Batman Arkham.

Spiderman is good but it doesn't have the calibur of these two amazing series.

I disagree that just because the two games are similar from a game-mechanics perspective then you have to like both. They are both very different from a content point of view. Tone of both games is also widely different.

The tonality is different but then if having a serious and grounded story is boring to you just because its serious shows a lack of depth of character. I like fun stories and characters too but if everything was like a Marvel film I'd stop playing games because that to me would get boring for its lack of depth.



Bravo Spidey!

That's just a matter of preference, and in my opinion there isn't a wrong preference in relation to gaming. And fyi serious and grounded does not equal depth

The final DLC just came out. I hear it's the best of the lot.

It damn well better be. Game is awesome and not as boring as the Batman games were.

Batman games were boring? Damn you got no taste. They were the pinnacle of good game design.

I have great taste, they just don't align with your point of view. I'll stick to they're boring though.

The downplaying in this thread is through the roof.

Using the "My PS4 Life" videos, Gamestat has discovered that 8.9 mill profiles have played Spider-Man and that's with all the bundles and games still waiting to be unwrapped for Christmast. The actual sales number will of course be lower but everything is pointing towards a huge success. Can't wait to have solid numbers.

So in the end, the actual number was pretty much spot on.

Spider-Man had sold more than 9 million copies worldwide by November 25, 2018 (link).

And will certainly cross 10M by end of fiscal year. Fantastic sale for 12 months.
