The Border House: "When I was but the tender young age of 15, two highly innovative games came out in the same year. They would leave a lasting impression on me and arguably the gaming industry in general. One game was the first fully 3d game ever and the other was the first game (to my knowledge) that allowed the player to kill sex workers (without recourse, naturally). I am speaking of the year 1996, in which the game Duke Nukem 3d came out in January and Quake came out in June. One of those games would launch a successful franchise for a developer which still exists, the other turned out to be a hit which could not be replicated in a timely manner.
For what it’s worth, Half-Life has sold 16 million copies, Doom sold 8.5 million copies and Duke Nukem 3D sold 3.5 million copies. If “sex(ism) sells”, then who’s buyin’?"
