What Culture writes: Long before Duke Nuken Forever became the embarrassing drunken uncle at the wedding, it gestated in the neverlands of Development Hell, establishing itself as the Chinese Democracy of videogames for the current generation. Sure, most of us suspected – rightly – that it would be an abomination, but all the while as we waited, a few of us clung to hope that it might not be the disastrous outing it turned out to be. Announced way back in 1997(!) it finally arrived in June of 2011 in truly desperate style, like a half-baked 80’s rock reunion to the dismay of just about everyone. Currently it stands as the most delayed game ever, though if things continue as they have been, the following six titles are certainly in the process of giving Duke a run for his money.
