Spider-Man implemented the Dodge feature IN Spider-Man 2 but in Amazing Spider-Man they still cited as coming from Arkham WTF

YOU MISSED A GAME... RE-DO THE WHOLE THING AGAIN... where is Spider-Man Friend or Foe...
Drew Forchic
You forgot the game I grew up playing...\n\nThe Spider-Man Plug-and-Play from 2004, made by Jakks Pacific. 5 whole games in one, no console needed. 6 year old me was psyched.\nThere was also a mobile game for my old flip phone, but I can't seem to find the name of it anywhere. It was a side scrolling beat-em-up and it was terrible and impossible to control on my terrible phone keypad but I played it anyway.

When I Was a little boy my first spiderman game was spiderman 2 for game boy advanced to the 2000s were the best
IMA_ Narwhal
What about Friend or Foe?
JC Gregory
People always forget about friend or foe and that game, despite it being a repetitive beat em up, was actually pretty fun and had a cool roster of characters. I love that game, but yet everyone else seems to forget it exists.
JaxBlade
Spider-man for PS1 is legit still my favorite video game of all time, I literally play that game to completion once every 3 months xD I love it so much. Part of me is kinda salty the 2018 Spiderman's game story wasnt just that but in this updated quality xD
Kasey C.
You forgot to mention the fact that Shattered Dimensions was also taken to the DS, just with the Ultimate Spider-Man suit only playable in the alt costumes mode.

Shouldn't Insomniac also be well known for the first 3 Spyro games?
MDG
Ultimate Spider-Man has always been so underrated. Much better than Spider-Man 2 in my eyes!
MaaziGaming
My top 3 \n\n1) Spider-Man Ps4\n2)Shattered Dimensions\n3)Spider-Man Total Mayhem (it’s a mobile game that got removed from the App Store)
Martin Mcwilliams
SUB-MAR-IN-ER\nNot sub ma rien er.
Michael Mioducki
I don’t care what anybody else says 2004 Spider-Man Ps2 was the best game as a kid!
Michael Staley
Please don't disappoint, Insomniac 🤞
MrQuarantine
Spiderman 2 and ultimate Spiderman are the still the goats imo. Shattered dimensions and web of shadows get an honorable mention though.

I LOST MY BALLOON!! 😭😭🎈
Nelson Bennett
In spider-man 2 for the ps1 why does professer x sond like sean connery.  Also why is the sam raimi and other spider-man movies are considered marvel movies when spider-man is now owned by sony. Please don't type that spider-man is a creation of marvel that doen't count.
Nemo Dollaz
Ultimate spiderman deserves so much more recognition.
Nick
The only spiderman games i ever owned and played where Spiderman (2002), spiderman 2 (2004), web of shadows, and shatter dimensions
Onat
so you mention marvel vs capcom games but not ultimate alliance?
Patrick Gin
spider man for the ps1 was the best one
Please Stand By
you missed FRIEND OR FOE WTF!! i loved that game

God, the animated scenes remind me too much of that crappy Legend of Zelda game and I already hate it

Shattered demotions was my childhood🙌🏽

The Amazing Spiderman 2 was really good, the only issue was having to constantly side track to stop crimes or the whole city hates you.

If Spider-Man ps4 does well, it will open a new lane for marvel superhero games

Spider man 2018.... my God It's beautiful ❤
Rockstar Fem
16:36 I find it weird they would remove the twin towers from the game. I get a tragic event happened, but it's a good historical reference as a representation of New York. Why remove it as if it was never there??
Ruvik Blüd
The outro on this video is SPOT ON!😂😂😂 Love the idea of adding the Pizza Delivery Music at the end👍👍
Sam Lewis
Well, the closest thing everyone expects we’ll get to Spider-Man’s ‘Arkham Asylum Treatment’ releases on Friday.
Sean Richmond
Ultimate Spider-Man swinging was just as good as Spider-Man 2 if not better. You attached to buildings just the same way.
Shadow Libra
Ultamate spiderman is my favorite

Ultimate Spiderman needs a remaster so bad :(

Best Spider-Man games:\n1. Ultimate Spider-Man\n2. Web of Shadows\n3. Shattered Dimensions\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIMO, of course.

The cadence of your voice is the worst thing that has ever happened. It is - and i don't say this lightly - worse than a hundred September 11ths.

What kind of monsters says SNES instead of Super NES?
Subscribed
Spider-Man (2000) , Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro , Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2, Ultimate Spider-Man, Web of Shadows and Shattered Dimensions were the good ones
SuperStriker7US Team Name:The Last Bosses
edge of time is extremely underrated because not that many people got the game i don't think but if you play it you will see why it is one of the best spider man games ever next to the amazing spider man 2 and the 2018 spiderman game...
Superluigi164
Hey, uh, you forgot two very important things: A. Shattered dimensions is on the Wii also, and B. Friend or foe. People only don't like FoF because it is too different, and it generally doesn't have nostalgia value to most people. It's actually pretty good, it's just simplistic.
Tetroy 64
Spider-Man 2002 for PC was my favorite Spider-Man game! Having Tobey Mcquire voice act for the game made for some great commentary and the vast set of attacks made for such an enjoyable game!
The Cringe God
Just prep ordered it!! Even though I don't have a ps4 and I know sony is getting greedy at the moment so I won't be getting ps4 plus (I am a hardcore spiderman fan) oh and also PIZZA TIME!!!

I do have to say props to Gamespot for only playing 1 ad during this video. Most would put over 10 ads.

*Is it weird I wanted to see if you made it back to the pizza shop ?*
ThePlagueMan
spider-man friend or foe is the best game of all time change my mind.
Thish ish that Chrishhh
Spider-Man vs Kingpin was way too hard for its target age-range. You're on the clock, dying and continuing subtracts two hours from the game time, web fluid depletes quickly; and if you run out, don't even bother playing. He punches half the distance any given enemy can strike you. I think the only people who praised that game were very mature/seasoned gamers. The rest of us popped in Sonic and anxiously waited for next Saturday morning to watch Spidey instead.
Tony, The Stark
Shattered Dimensions was awesome! After Spider-Man 2 was the only SM game I really liked. More linear approach but the gameplay was so much fun with all the various mechanics between the 4 characters.

Enjoyed Shattered Dimensions and that about it.

Haven't really fully played a spider-man game since ultimate spider-man. Reviews just kept disapointing me and Shattered dimensions flew under my radar at the time and it is a bit pricey to try and go back to now. Definitely picking up the new spider-man in a couple days and I'm really looking forward to it. Watching this retrospective made me realize just how much spider-man 2's graphics and jank have aged so hopefully this new one will be great so I can have that authentic great experience without sacrificing in the graphics department.

The mobile games were the best
tvdinner86
A little surprised that the Marvel Ultimate Alliance duology, or the more recent Lego games featuring the webhead, didnt even get a passing mention; though I suppose it falls under the category of 'marvel game that also has spider-man in it' rather than a SM focused title.

What about the mobile version
