Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered: The Most Enjoyable Bad Game I’ve Ever Played
How can a game be so horrible and contrived, while I still want to 100% it?
Note: I have never played the original game, so I am not saying anything about that.
What Is the Best Video Game of All Time? And Why Is it Dishonored?
