Spider-Man 2 was a pretty decent Spider-Man experience, but since then Activision hasn't exactly made the most its friendly neighbourhood superhero. According to Activision CEO Bobby Kotick the games have, to put it bluntly, "sucked".
"Our Spider-Man games have sucked for the last five years," Kotick told Game Informer in a recent interview. "They are bad games. They were poorly rated because they were bad games."
He added: "We went away from what is Spider-Man. It's about web-slinging. If you don't do web-slinging, what is the fantasy of Spider-Man?"
Activision has long-term license agreements for the Spider-Man franchise so fans can only hope future Spidey titles suck a bit less.
