A popular Spider-Man modder worked on an experimental first-person mode for the game, showing web surfing from a (slightly nauseous) perspective.
YouTube user jedijush920 the mod’s first released game with a fixed camera view, which means the first-person perspective will stabilize as Spider-Man circles New York.
This version could be more comfortable to use but comes with some caveats, like when the player does tricks and flips in the air, the fixed angle of view means his body will flash in front of the camera instead of reacting more naturally.

As a result, fans were clamoring for a completely accurate version where the camera would precisely move with Spider-Man’s contours and for better or worse, the jedijush920 was delivered. The next video they released does exactly that, showing every head movement as Spider-Man climbs walls, dives from skyscrapers, and flips and spins through the air.
The result is quite impressive, (presumably) accurately recreating what looks like superheroes swinging around New York. However, it is also a tough watch for those prone to motion sickness, so watchers beware.
This is not the only mod added to the PC version of Spider-Man, like Stan Lee and other characters including Mary Jane, Vulture and Kingpin became playable protagonists.
Modifications are just one of the inevitable consequences of Sony bringing Spider-Man to PC, along with a rigorous search through the files that have revealed what appears to be a multiplayer mode removed and plans for a PlayStation PC game launcher.
Other Sony games have received similarly quirky mods after being brought to PC. For example, the main character of God of War, Kratos, was brought up against the Master Chief of Halo and someone even made a Simpsons Hit and Run mod.
