Yeah, an odd choice for sure. Seems like the main reason it is on their list is simply because of the temporal injection technique they use to make it look closer to native 4K on PS4 Pro.
Not odd at all. Spider-Man handled things that God of War couldn't (given the nature of the game). Although God of War is more impressive visually, Spider-Man handled things in ways that few open world games could have ever dreamed of.
