Remember when Spider-Man 64 came out (incidentally still my favorite 3D Spidey game) and you could unlock all sorts of different costumes as you played that would offer all sorts of replay bonuses because of the different perks theyèd attribute; for instance the Symbiote Suit gave you infinite webbing since the Symbiote generates it itself, etc.

Yeah.

I also remember when 3D fighting games had tons of alternate costumes that just came with the game and was one of the more obvious cool advantages they had over a 2D game, even if such small touches were wholey superficial.

I sometimes hate the current era. I donèt mind DLC, and while I loath preorder bonuses I can tolerate them. But when it involves stripping down features that used to be standard... bleh.
