Not really. I've gotten some serious mileage out of Metro 2033, L4D, The Witcher, Borderlands.

I know a lot of it is just personal taste, with DNF though, just tired of hearing about it, so I'm probably a little jaded at this point.

Some people here cuming in their pants over this as yet unreleased game must be f-ing teenagers (or younger).

Judging from all I've seen of this game so far (unless this new company makes it again from scratch) it's going to be crap if it ever gets here (and I'll believe it's here when it actually is). This is going to be a kids game (I mean 14 and under, that is where the appeal is going to be). To a serious gamer, this game is going to be nothing but a letdown. Old Duke was never all that to begin with (contrary to the old memories some have which can be so distorted) and it's been built up so much it's never going to live up. No way. Down with the Duke!

Sadly, I agree with this. Don't think I'll buy it till I've read some reviews. Not professional reviews- reviews from people that are familiar with the original games and played this one.

Wouldn't be surprised if I wound up not purchasing it... ever. It'll be very PC, very watered- down, and very much nothing like the original.

Not really. When gran tourismo 5 comes out, all other functions will cease.

Same with Diablo III

Actually from what I read in one of those articles, they're pushing the envelop as far as what the censors will allow. Specifically saying they have to retain the edgy nature that made the original Duke 3D so awesome.

I'm expecting over the top gore and probably plenty of boobs. Given how much gore and nudity the god of war games got away with, I don't see why they can't put whatever they want in Duke as long as it gets (and it will) the M rating.

Well, back when we all had nvidia 4400's and 4600's and we joked that the game wouldn't be released until we had 9900's and DX14... we weren't too far off LOL.

Quick.... start posting lottery numbers!!!

There's no way this game could ever live up to the hype it's been given. Still, I hope they give us a good game, with a few good laughs.

Calling it now - gameplay will be standard FPS with superfluous interactive objects, presentation will be very heavy fan service, and most of us will realize that the Duke character was really not all that cool to begin with (he's just a mixture of action movie cliches and Evil Dead one-liners).

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.
