#4. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

This would have placed much higher had there been more than 90 seconds of CG footage, but the idea alone has me so incredibly stoked. Insomniac’s Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4 is easily one of the best games of this generation, arguably the best Spider-Man game to date and definitely one of the best superhero games ever. It managed to take a pretty fresh spin on one of the longest-running heroes in comic book history and still make it feel like a pure Spider-Man experience.

The biggest knocks I would give it, and they aren’t that big, were that the stealth sections where you played either Mary Jane Watson or Miles Morales weren’t all that fun or exciting. For those who finished the game and played the DLC, The City That Never Sleeps, it seemed pretty obvious that Miles would play a much larger role in the next game and become his own Spider-Man.

But I think we figured we might play him in a few sections and we’d still mostly be following the next superhero adventures of Peter Parker. Instead, Spider-Man: Miles Morales is clearly focused on Peter’s protege. For whatever reason, Miles is mostly on his own here, but that’s really exciting.

For those not in the know, yes, Miles has some similar powers to Peter, but he’s also got some different tricks up his sleeve that should figure into gameplay very nicely. We still don’t know a ton about this new game, although we did learn that it’s a standalone game that’s smaller in scale than the original. Given that it appears to be built using the same engine, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales should be out around the time the PS5 launches.
