As a far less jaded teenager Duke Nukem 3D was an impressive game to me not only because of the "adult" themes, but also because of the game technology. Whoever it was that said Duke 3D wasn't anything special when it was released must have recently undergone a lobotomy. The Build engine was the most advanced "2.5d" engine around. The character of Duke was amusing because, at the time, I didn't get all the references, and that sort of cheesy not-taking-itself-seriously tone really gave the game a great atmosphere. Still, the game was essentially just a standard early first-person shooter with fun weapons and lots of buttons to push.

The years of hype for DN:F have created a Duke cult of personality. I wonder if this has ever happened before for a fictional character? Anyway, the excitement for the game has always boggled my mind. I was never under the delusion that anything this game offers could meet the expectations people now have, but I have to admit being automatically drawn to any news about it. Years of fake trailers, rumors, more fake trailers, then some real stuff, etc. really elevated the character to this legendary status. What claim to fame does he really have? The only thing worth mentioning in the Duke franchise is Duke 3D. Duke 1&2 were standard platform shooters, and the shovelware crap they released on consoles over the years doesn't even merit consideration.

Duke Nukem is the greatest game ever yet and doesn't afraid of anyone!!
