Every trailer out there for an upcoming video game always has a song in it that is supposed to sell the viewer on said game. A few I can name off the top of my head are Bobby Darin’s “Beyond The Sea” for BioShock 1, “I Don’t Want To Set The World On Fire” by The Ink Spots for Fallout 3, and “Beast” by Nico Vega for BioShock Infinite. Nevertheless, for every gamer out in the world, there is a song used that they love. So it’s time to start rocking out with our favorite music used for video game trailers!

There is a point in the launch trailer where Genke more or less says that whenever Miles talks about Spider-Man he is talking about whatever Peter is going through. This shows the gamer the main theme of the game: Be Greater, Be Yourself. As the title of the song used in the trailer explains: It’s My Time.
