9. Spider-Man 2 (2004)

In the same way dropping from a gargoyle onto a terrified thug is essential to the Batman fantasy, launching weblines at New York buildings is part of what it means to be Spider-Man. Treyarch's console adaptation of the second movie did it best, with web-slinging physics that meant we weren't just flying around like a slow version of Superman who made lame jokes. Sometimes copied but never bettered, Spider-Man 2 made us feel like Spider-Man in the way Arkham Asylum made us feel like Batman.
