Is this the relatively new PS4 Spider-Man game everyone's been raving about?
A War of a Madman's Making - a text-based war planning and political survival RPG

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

Depends on how MJ feels about that.   ;)

Anyway, to be on topic for once..

Yes that's the PS4 exclusive Spiderman game now released to PC. 

And yes it's worth the buy if you're at all interested in the genre/character. 

It's got a really intuitive and interesting combat system, and the suit power/upgrade system is very very fun. 

I don't like a few of the visual changes they made with the remaster, like changing Peter's look, but that won't bother people that didn't play the original version.

I'm assuming he meant games, not movies  >:D, but there have been a ton, going all the way back to the Atari 2600.  I have three on steam (Amazing Spider-Man 1 and 2, and Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions), but they have all been de-listed.

Nah, I was actually meaning movies. 

The game is a very movie like experience, just one you can interact with. 

As a pure Spiderman game it can hold its own with the Tom Holland films and I'd call it better than the McGuire/Garfield ones.

No idea if or how buggy it may be but from a pure gaming perspective if you like open world games this is a must buy.

It can get grindy and the stealth sequences detract but otherwise it’s an awesome game.
Insert witty comment here.

^I'm enjoying it too.  Very polished. This is not a simple sloppy port.
