I have never really done much with the photo mode in games before. I dabbled a little bit in God of War, took some fun shots, but largely just focused on playing the game.
The opposite seems to be true with Spider-man. Partly because the game is so gorgeous I can’t help but stop and gawk at it sometimes. But also because Spider-man himself is incredibly photogenic. Insomniac did a fantastic job capturing Spidey’s fluid gymnast-quality movements, and being able to freeze-frame and rotate around makes for some stunning captures.
However, between this and catching pigeons and shit, I’m pretty sure New York’s crime rate has gone up with me around.
