Activision: Our Spider-Man games "sucked"

CEO Bobby Kotick tells us what we've suspected for years...

Activision CEO Bobby Kotick has come clean and admitted that the company's last five years of Spider-Man games have "sucked". Yes he actually said that.

Speaking to US mag Game Informer (via D'Toid), Kotick said, "Our Spider-Man games have sucked for the last five years," he said when talking about what he's seen in the quality control department from Blizzard. "They are bad games. They were poorly rated because they were bad games."

He added that, "We went away from what is Spider-Man. It's about web-slinging. If you don't do web-slinging, what is the fantasy of Spider-Man?"

The games Kotick is talking about are Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, Spider-Man 3, Spider-Man: Friend or Foe, Spider-Man: Battle for New York, Ultimate Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2.

We're sure the developers of those titles are thrilled to hear Kotick's comments. That said, were you (or your kids) burnt by any of the above? Or did you actually like them? Don't be shy...
