These Spider-Man PS4 quotes are full of heart, emotion, and humor. Check out what Peter Parker and friends had to say in their latest adventure.
Spider-Man is always known for his quick one-liners during battles. Ever since his humble comic book beginnings, his sharp tongue, much like sister series Deadpool, has always been a defining trait.
This tradition continued somewhat in the live-action Spider-Man movies, but it has been a much stronger thread in the video games. When Spidey isn’t emotionally cry-shouting at the latest betrayal of yet another supervillain friend, he usually spends his time reminiscing on his past interactions with characters with sarcasm.
Spider-Man PS4 took Peter Parker’s sly wit to a new level. Every once in a while, the jokes don’t land (I still don’t get what he was referencing with the whole thing during the Vulture and Electro battle, but maybe I just need to dig a little further into Spider-Man lore), but most of the time, he’s hilarious.
Some other characters got to take a turn at getting some zingers in, including MJ and Miles Morales. The entire game is full of great dialogue, making it hard to pick our favorites. In no particular order, here are the best Spider-Man PS4 quotes.
“Writing memoirs? Don’t forget the hyphen between Spider and Man.” – Peter Parker
Quipped at Kingpin during the opening boss battle, this inside joke made a lot of fans laugh, because the hyphen is something we all often forget when writing out the name Spider-Man. Stan Lee added the hyphen to differentiate Spider-Man from the word Superman, which, fair enough. And speaking of Stan Lee…
“Love seeing you two together again! You always were my favorites.” – Stan Lee
Stan Lee’s cameo in Spider-Man PS4 happened during one of MJ and Peter’s dates at their favorite diner. Apparently, in this universe, he is a short order cook, per the subtitles. I’m sure Stan Lee had a say in what his cameo was going to be in this game, because this quote feels rather pointed (and perhaps a dig at The Amazing Spider-Man‘s Gwen love story?).
“How do I call you? I mean do you have like a cellphone in your… po-pockets or something?” – Miles Morales
Miles was a breath of fresh air whenever he cropped up in Spider-Man PS4. He has a bright perspective on all of this zany action, and asks the important questions: where indeed does Peter keep his cellphone when he’s web-slinging around in tights?
“I’m sure Sable offers workman’s comp…” – MJ
MJ took a bit of the limelight from Peter in this game, giving her the perfect opportunities to get off some awesome one-liners. This line was said as she tazes the second Sable officer that she meets on her way up to Norman Osborn’s penthouse.
“You’re in luck Yuri! Your favorite tough but loveable grizzled seen-too-much detective is in town.” “What? No no no no, you promised you wouldn’t do that any-“ “Spider cop.” “No…” – Peter and Yuri
One of the best running gags in Spider-Man PS4 was the Spider-cop bit. Peter is determined to make his cop friend as annoyed as possible, so he takes up a grizzly voice and storytelling perspective to describe how awesome he feels helping out the police force.
“Weird things have been going on. Like, physically.” “Oh, uh… well you’re at that age where your body starts to change, and soon you may be noticing… some… areas, for examp-” “No! Not that. Uhhh… think it’s… it’s better that I just, um I show you.” “No… no no no no-” “It’s pretty weird, right?” “Not that weird.” – Peter and Miles
This heartwarming moment that closed out the game left a great taste in our mouths for future Spider-Man romps. In due time, we may see a video game where Miles takes over the duties of web-slinging from Peter…
“You do what you think is best, Doc. It’s all any of us can… even when it hurts like Hell.” – Peter Parker
This heartbreaking quote also speaks of a great lesson that all of us can learn from. Peter reached his breaking point, and understandably so. There’s falling victim to a personality changing chip, and there’s also willingly accepting that you’re going to be evil. Peter found that Otto crossed the line, so he cut him out of his life, even if it meant exposing who Spider-Man was. When MJ was hesitant to give Peter advice on when it was time to let Otto go, it was because she knew how much saving the Doc meant to Peter. Losing his mentor and father-figure was a major blow to Peter. For a man that’s endured multiple concussions, sword slices, broken bones, ect., an emotion hurting “like Hell” must really, really hurt Peter.
