Marvel’s Spider-Man has thought a lot about accessibility
Spoiler Alert: This piece discusses the ending of Marvel’s Spider-Man.
“Welcome to “Just the Facts,” with J. Jonah Jameson. Spider-Man is the best superhero game ever made! Wait! Who’s writing this rubbish? Vivek Gohil? Well, I want you to fire him.”
Seriously, though, Insomniac Games’ respect for Spider-Man’s history shines through in every aspect of the webslinger’s latest, from the story and world-building to the combat, gadgets and traversal mechanics. The Spider-Man mythos has been remixed beautifully. Look at how the game’s story flips the relationship between Spider-man and Otto Octavius. The traditional antagonistic relationship has been transformed into the tragic story of a student forced to revolt against his well-meaning mentor. It was a gut-punch watching the slow destruction of a brilliant mind into a twisted but believable villain.
