You Can’t Punch Pedestrians in Marvel’s Spider-Man, But You Can Say Hi

Marvel's Spider-Man has just launched for the PlayStation 4 to glowing reviews. In addition to the game's exceptional story and gameplay mechanics, developer Insomniac Games has also received praise for their keen attention to detail.

One such example is the way Spidey can interact with the civilians of the open-world New York City in-game. First of all, he is unable to attack them (this isn't Grand Theft Auto, after all). However, what he can do is walk up to pedestrians and casually greet them by shooting off some finger guns, as Dorkly Managing Editor Tristan Cooper has pointed out.

So, if you're playing Spider-Man and decide you need a break from the whole saving the world thing, you could always go for a walk down the streets of Manhattan and mingle with the everyday citizens who inhabit Spidey's world. If you feel so inclined, you could even play 'Drive That Funky Soul' by James Brown in the background while you re-create the infamous "Emo Peter" dance scene from Spider-Man 3 from the comfort of your own sofa.
