The wooden player who plays Spiderman has played it for as long as anyone can remember.
But not anymore.
“The game I played as a child is now the thing that has shaped me as a gamer,” said Michael G. Williams, a 40-year-old who plays for the Brooklyn Nets.
The new game, which is free to play, is called Spiderman 2: Back in Action.
Williams has played the game since he was 4 years old and it has become his lifelong passion.
Williams, who is married to a former teammate, said that in high school he wanted to be a doctor.
But he wanted a way to pay his bills while he played.
“I always wanted to work,” he said.
“I had a dream to be in a hospital or something.”
Williams plays SpiderMan in the game.
Williams and his wife have two sons and a daughter.
He said his wife is a huge fan of Spiderman and she has always wanted him to play.
“We’re going to have the best family I could have,” Williams said.
Williams and his husband are planning to host a game of SpiderMan 2 in their backyard on Saturday.
