About the new Peter Parker model…

My Take

It’s pretty clear on Twitter fans are upset by this new character model. Insomniac Games’ Twitter person is trying their best in doing damage control for their tweet announcing the blog being published. A huge amount of the fan base is upset by their decision to recast the original look of Peter Parker, despite them explaining in the blog post to better match Yuri Lowenthal’s performance for the PlayStation 5. I’m not going to say I hate this new version of Peter Parker but I don’t like it either. My initial reaction to the new Peter Parker model was “oh they REALLY changed up the model huh?”. My reaction wasn’t necessarily negative but more of a shock one since they decided to go with a actor who looks drastically different from the original. I wasn’t a huge fan of Peter Parker’s original model before the game’s release but slowly grew to be fine with it once I had the game in my hands.
