Here are the best Marvel video games of all time. The Marvel superhero franchise has dominated the movie genre for quite some time now, setting world records left and right, alongside receiving mass acclaim from critics and fans alike. That isn’t enough for them though, as the company is setting up to launch a new initiative soon based in the realm of video games. That initiative will begin with the launch of an unnamed Avengers video game.
But while there’s a lot of anticipation, and mystery, surrounding the title, it is important to remember that Marvel has still made a lot of damn good games well before deciding to invest in the genre even more.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions
Out of all of the Marvel characters, Spider-Man may be the character that has the most alternate versions of himself, at least when it comes to his suits and outfits. Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions takes that concept and adds a comic touch.
In the game, players control four different versions of Spider-Man, each of whom came from a different universe in the Marvel Comics multiverse. The four characters that make up the roster of web-slingers are Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Man 2099, and Ultimate Spider-Man. These alternate reality doppelgangers are tasked with working together so that they can bring each of their realities back into balance. This storyline is unlike any that has occurred in previous games in the series, or any other Marvel games for that matter, a factor that helped it stand out as unique.
Alongside distinct suits for each character, abilities also differed depending upon who you control. Where one Spider-Man focuses heavily on acrobatic moves, another is stealth oriented. This style of gameplay makes for an interesting bit of variety and was definitely ahead of its time with the mechanic. Truly one of the best Marvel video games.
