Marvel's Spider-Man 2 Graffiti Trouble Push Square 1

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 has been nominated for a GAconf Award in the Best Representation category thanks to its rather special side mission Graffiti Trouble. In it, you play as Miles' friend Hailey — who is deaf — and work your way through a construction site to reach a graffiti artist. Insomniac Games simulates what it's like to be deaf in the optional quest by cutting out the vast majority of audio and reducing voice acting to muffled sounds.

Because of its efforts, the game has been recognised for having a "playable deaf character" with "ASL interpreting and simulated hearing loss". It'll compete with Moving Out 2 and Hi-Fi Rush for the Best Representation award. Nominations for other Sony games include Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores in the Best Mental Health Accessibility category for its thalassophobia setting and the PS5 console itself for a September firmware update that added menu haptics and the ability to split controls across two controllers.

Many of the FNSM App Requests in Marvel's Spider-Man 2 are highlights in the PS5 exclusive, but Graffiti Trouble is the clear winner with its welcome representation and all-round pleasant gameplay. You get to use the PS5 DualSense controller to shake and spray a can of paint, throw rocks, and create your own mural. Did you love this side mission too? Let us know in the comments below.
