I finished “Spider-Man 2” and “Super Mario Bros. Wonder” last night. It’s a problem when the release dates of big titles you should watch overlap…! However, I think both are masterpieces that I can recommend to anyone. The new games are amazing, and I’m grateful to them for making them.X
It’s a great message that shows respect for colleagues and rivals alike. It also isn’t too surprising, since both titles have made a substantial splash on the market.
