Default Is Duke Nukem Forever worth 3.74?

Its on steam for that price,

Forgetting the years of waiting and the hype, objectively speaking just wondering if its worth it?

It is a waste of space even at free. I know I own it.

I'd say it's definitely worth it just because of the comedic value, it's hilariously bad.

It's old school. You shoot things. There are some jokes.

Games today have become so elaborate with stories and atmosphere and RPG elements. Duke is just about shooting things. It's a breath of fresh air. There should be more first person shooters.

Duke was so dumb it was insulting though... not how I remember it.

There are plenty of plain old shooters out there. If you want humor (which Duke sorely lacks) and old school shooting play any of the Serious Sam games.

Duke Forever isn't worth buying at any price, and it's certainly not a breath of fresh air...unless your idea of fresh air is manure.

PC version, yeah it's worth it. You prob play it and never play again, but at that prices, it's like going to see an ok movie.

The price isn't the problem, it's the time wasted. There are far too many good games out there than to even waste a minute playing garbage.

This.

If you're going to play a game mindlessly shooting things and get witty one liners, at least play serious sam 3. It's the game that DNF only wishes it could have been.
