Duke Nukem is stupid. It’s sexist, his one-liners are idiotic, and to be completely and totally honest the game doesn’t even look that good. I mean, how is the AI going to be? The controls? It all looks a bit… 2003, or something. But…
Duke Nukem has a sense of place. It gave you a real world to stomp around in as a misogynistic, idiotic hero, and hell, I loved that.
