    insomniac isn't overlooked. they have just made a few meh (most of the sequels to the games they made) games thats all. lets not pretend that this spider man game is hella hyped because, its a spider man game. the story is GREAT, but its a spider man game folks. hopefully Sony doesn't do a cash grab and no make any more dlc after the third one. I wanna see more villains, more characters (miles, spider Gwen, silk) more story like how we see with GTA. I am not gonna get my hopes up tho lol

    Spiderman PS4 wouldn’t exist without Playstation says creative director, this is what he had to say:

    “It really all aligned. We’ve worked with Sony for long over the years. Working with them again was awesome. This game would not exist if it wasn’t for playstation, if not for their support. I’m telling you, anytime I wanted to do something and I wanted to make some drastic change, It was just like ‘okay’. I never heard about anything. It was just like, ‘go do it.’ The question was, ‘is it gonna make the game better?’ and I’d say, ‘yep, and they’d go, ‘okay’, and that would be the last time I’d hear about it. So many people want to talk about Marvel and Insomniac, which is awesome… But I owe everything to PlayStation”

    While this video essay is by no means revolutionary, I really enjoyed this. Well done, Gamespot.

    I really hope a new Ratchet & Clank game gets release someday. I want ratchet to go to the lombax dimension.

    Been on Xbox since OG and I grabbed a Spider-Man bundle the moment it became available on Amazon! Holy hell I couldn’t be happier, Spider-Man is seriously one of my top 3 favorite games of all time already!

    Well, Microsoft can always try to siege the exclusive right to Superman, for the xbox 2 (or whatever they would call it). Because, let’s face it, the xbone has been a lost cause for this entire generation. Any attempt to save it is nothing more than a waste of time and money.

    I wouldn't say this game is a master piece, sure it's fun to be spider man. But with sooo many weak side mission particularly the research station missions, which make absolutely no sense. Spider man is a fun game but it won't age well considering that Mad Max, and the Batman Arkham games came before it.

    didn't even know these guys made the original Spyro games, now I'm even more excited cause I really enjoyed the ratchet & clank reboot & especially spider-man. I played the demo for the trilogy yesterday at EGX but not much but I did enjoy it

    Ratchet and Clank is one of my all time favorite series, I love Resistance as a really immersive fps shooter experience, and Sunset Overdrive almost singlehandedly made me want to buy a Xbox One. I also can't wait to play the Spyro Trilogy as it was release slightly before my time. And as a future game developer it's my dream not to work at Blizzard or Rockstar, but Insomniac. They deserve just as much recognition as Naughty Dog in my opinion and it's great to see them getting some of it finally.

    Really they nailed it on the head! With this game I 100percented this game and got a platinum but still swinging in the best version of video game new York possible.The story is short but emotional.Really would have been the best movie if it would've been a movie.

    They did something great here.
    I really hope Marvel let's talanted game developers make a connected universe like the movies. That would epic.

    On a side note thank you Rocksteady for setting a new bar for Comic book heroes
    And licensed games in general.

    personally i love that insomiac doesnt play it safe like a lot fo companies. instead of working to make a game that sells wiht unoffensive characters, (save the bs black cat one developer in the studeio did) they make tittles wiht characters people will love. to establish a following and audience. they make games for gamers

    This and MLB The Show really has me regretting buying an Xbox, I am not in the financial range of affording 2 consoles, so next generation is definitely going to be a Sony purchase.

    Thanks to Spider-man's success I doubt we will ever get a Sunset Overdrive 2, which is kind of a bummer. I just hope they continue to make games with such great traversal, seems like thats one of the major things missing in most open world games.

    I have enjoyed my first play through of the game and quite honestly I was a little annoyed at the fact that this was a PlayStation exclusive (being an Xbox One owner @the time), but I adapted and secured both consoles. This was the best Spider-Man game I've ever played, and although the gameplay is not flawless, it is very well done. I'm already in my second play through and looking forward to the DLC Pkg to extend my experience until Red Dead drops. Great coverage gamespot!
