We all know the story that has haunted the long development of such a high caliber icon in the video game world, and finally after twelve years of waiting the Duke has returned.
Every hardcore gamer out there has fond memories of the Duke and his witty one liners from Duke Nukem 3D, and know of what playing a Duke Nukem game feels like. I saw the reviews come out shortly before the game launch and I had to chuckle inside.
I knew going in that the game wasn't an epic accomplishment, nor did I go into Duke Nukem Forever with high hopes of this being the next Call of Duty.
I went into Duke Nukem Forever with the mind set of wanting to be reminded of what brought me to video games in the first place. Mission accomplished.
