Spider-Man has always been one of Marvel’s superhero darlings. The studio’s latest foray into the video game world has made this one of the best that our Friendly Neighborhood Wall-Crawler has ever starred in.

God of War

PlayStation 4

The smart folks at Sony veered away from a reboot and instead did a sequel to this already-iconic game. This latest release takes place right after God of War III and still revolves around the lead character. This time, a much older Kratos is taking his son under his wing as they both face the intense world of Norse mythology.

The game sticks to the theme of Kratos wielding magical weapons to defeat gods and mosters in an open landscape with the help of his young son.
