Spiderman Games and the Ongoing Interest in Spiderman

Entertainment,Education,Free Web Resources
Comic books have always been vehicles for

wish fulfillment. Spiderman has always

been a particularly effective vehicle for

wish fulfillment, because Spiderman

himself is a much more relatable

character than superheroes like Superman

and Batman. Superman, as popular as he

is, has few flaws and weaknesses. Batman

may be a much more flawed individual, but

his success and wealth can certainly

distance him from many readers. Batman

and Superman are still successful

characters when it comes to wish

fulfillment, but they still seemingly

represent a different category.

All three superheroes have been featured

very prominently throughout several films

in recent years. Many people today who

want to play Spiderman games will

probably already have seen more than one

film series featuring Spiderman.

Spiderman games would have achieved a

certain level of popularity anyway due to

the prevalence of Spiderman in American

popular culture. Spiderman comics are

practically a cultural institution by

this point, given the number of

generations that have grown up with

Spiderman comics and Spiderman films.

Many demographics have been won over by

Spiderman films in recent years, which

signals their fairly broad appeal. It is

no surprise that Spiderman games would

become another part of the vast amount of

material surrounding Spiderman. Making

Spiderman games is clearly profitable,

and there is a reasonable amount of

demand for them. Branding has always

worked well in marketing, and Spiderman

is a recognized brand by this point. The

line between an especially popular

character and a brand can become blurred

at the extremes.

There is something far more satisfying

about choosing a game that features a

well-known character with an established

history, as opposed to trying to forge

that connection with a new, unknown

character from scratch. Well-known

characters can benefit from the amount of

inertia surrounding them. There is a

reason that Spiderman games are

successful even compared to other games

that feature famous fictional characters,

however, and some of that does come down

to Spiderman himself.

Spiderman is typically portrayed as an

awkward character with personality traits

that are often relatable to the target

Spiderman demographic. They can more

easily imagine Spiderman stories as being

representative of what would happen to

them if they were suddenly able to

acquire superhuman abilities. Being able

to project yourself into a story properly

can actually make it much more successful

in terms of wish fulfillment than simply

making the superpowers as excellent as


Spiderman’s superpowers themselves have a

somewhat unique quality to them, as well.

Scaling buildings and building webs as

Spiderman, and figuring out how to solve

problems using Spiderman’s skills, makes

for a different experience than using

Superman’s vast arsenal of abilities to

solve a wide range of problems. Spiderman

games take full advantage of Spiderman’s

unique characteristics, and make for a

fun experience that sets Spiderman apart

from other computer game avatars.

Games similar to Spiderman games are out

there, since superhero games are a

popular genre by themselves. Spiderman

games may have been popular anyway, even

if the character were a relatively recent

invention, instead of an old one with a

huge history behind it. As it stands

today, the specific tropes that Spiderman

uses and the well-known nature of

Spiderman media work to make Spiderman

games popular.
