Publishers really shouldn’t slag off their own games, as it makes the people who bought them feel like mugs. It is pretty amusing when they do though. Case in point – Activision boss Bobby Kotick sharing his thoughts on the recent Spider-Man games to Game Informer:
“Our Spider-Man games have sucked for the last five years. They are bad games. They were poorly rated because they were bad games. 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?”
Does this mean that this year’s Spider-Man game is having some love and attention put into it? It could well be a sign.
