Let’s Stop Ruining Video Game Comedy

Damn Lag: “The cake is a lie.” Before the release of Portal and the subsequent popularization of the quote, I had never had such a tumultuous relationship with a videogame meme. On one hand, it is awesome that gaming had such genuinely funny and quotable game to enjoy as Portal. It indicates how much writing and dialog in games has become a top priority and bodes well on the future of gaming.

On the other hand, it got overwhelmingly annoying extremely quickly and was driven into the ground by what seemed to be every gamer under the sun.

The story is too old to be commented.

Duke is one of few characters that is allowed to have his personality in the game. thats one of many things he was known for. if you dont like that you get board of hearing him say it then you no duke fan so in the words of classic duke.
