Spider-Man: Miles Morales is not a sequel...

It's supposed to be a "stand alone game".  People are pissed about this... for some reason? It's not like it was an enhanced port of Spider-Man with an added PS5 Exclusive Miles Morales DLC turned into its own game a la The Lost and the Damned, or Ballad of Gay Tony. While it may reuse some assets from Marvel's Spider-Man for PS4, it's a brand new story to keep some excitement until Spider-Man 2.

Think of it as a Marvel's Spider-Man 1.8: Miles Morales: RePlace... or some bulshitty Kingdom Hearts side-game... The game is a side-game. That in itself is not a bad thing. Being a side-game allows the developer to explore some things that couldn't be worked on the main game. The game could've started as a DLC that grew beyond the size of a DLC and with the dawn of PS5, well, it makes more sense to release it as a standalone PS5 game than part of a remaster/enhanced port of the PS4 game.

 I can't see the outrage. It's a Spider-Man game starring Miles Morales. I don't see anything deceitful about Spider-Man game starring Miles Morales being called Spider-Man: Miles Morales. It wasn't called Spider-Man 2: Miles Morales. But the internet is where people bitch and moan about everything by clutching their virtual pearls... if this was a video this would be the part where I would turn my face straight to the camera and stare at it with a 4th wall breaking stare.
