Mitch Krpata will still play Duke Nukem Forever, despite the horrible reviews. Why? Because Duke Nukem 3D is a vital part of his past and his life as a gamer.
...but it will be a used copy from GameStop, and I'll return if for a full refund within a week.
duke nukem gave me a headache :T
Thanks for posting an article telling the world about your horrible tastes in games.
^^^thank you for posting a comment on an article you hate but care a lot to be in here.
didnt mean to say duke nukem is a bad game btw just it gave me a headache lol
Sorry. I cant hear this article over the sound of my better games.
Rented it from Red Box and it confirmed that the reviewers were hating HARD. IMO the sense of nostalgia playing Duke is off the charts. Now I'm only a quarter of a way through the game, but from what I see if you were a die-hard Duke fan then I'd highly recomment it. For everyone else its definately not in the same leeague as some of the Elite shooters in the game (ie. Halo Reach, COD etc). At the same time, it's not trying to be. The game doesn't take itself seriously and there are some genuinely funny moments. At the end of the day, give it a rent and you may be pleasantly suprised. I actually will buy Duke in the future. But down the line when the inevitable 10 dollar price cut comes around. Evil
Actually DNF is one of the best games this year. Doesn't try to be wannabe action movie flick, doesn't try to be hyper realistic, doesn't go with the easy to bred story based on recent events in real world, doesn't try to be realistic. It's well balanced oldschool shooter. Reminds me a lot of original Half Life. There are puzzles, mini games, varied gameplay and quite a lot of shooting. It's FUN. 90s FUN. Most people here were sucking mommy's tits back then and wouldn't know a thing about good game even when it'd slap them in the face.
Well said 'hay'.. I salute Gearbox for tackling the IP and keeping what was fun about Duke in the first place. But since the game got hit by the review bash test I expect it to go on sale for 49.99 in the very near future in hopes of garnering another bump I. Sales. I call it the 'Dragon Age 2' effect. Thats when I'll jump back in and continue from by Redbox save. Again worth the buy for fans and I hope the game still finds success. Evil
"I Don't Care What The Reviews Say - I'll Still Play Duke Nukem Forever" And you will signal the devs that its ok to release crappy games we will buy anything.
Well CoD already does that...
In some sense I agree with you. But at the same time, listening to reviews to base your opinion off of rather than your OWN opinion makes people sheep. And if we haven't learned anything else in these past years, it's that reviewers tend to be swayed if you give them "swag" or there is bias in their so-called opinions. While I agree Duke Nukem is a lame game. It's because I played it myself first hand and found I didn't like it, not because I listened to some random reviewer that doesn't have the slightest clue of what I like or dislike told me to.
i have it , i finish it , i kick ass!!!! play what you fucking want , not what the stupid media says...end of the story
that's right! you tellem! Your the Man! Buy me a copy and that will really showem your the Boss cause I'm not spending one Euro on that crap.
you wanna touch it, dont you!!!
this topic dont make no sense stop being a fanboy to Duke the game fuckin sucks its already selling for 20+dollors on the internet real games now what real game and a true good game is...this game is 100% duke is dead now shut up
That language is how you lose bubbles bub. Just a friendly heads up.
i rather play vampire rain
duke reminds me of being that 13 year old kid in the ninties ,love the game today as much as back then ok its not a graffical beast but its fun to play
Considering that half the reviews are total shit, yet the game is still selling like crazy, this one will definitely go down as a cult classic. And big sales means sequel, which means an up-to-date Duke.
Most people,ncluding myself, thougnb who HAVE played it found t a bit shit-I'd need to be amazingly impressed and they'd have to find a way of moving Duke forwards cos he doesn't, not in his current state(and no matter ow much Randy loves him and says "it's Duke's World")work whatsoever as a cultural focus. Duke just feels old, and not in a good way, but in a "I'm glad we don't get away with that shit anymore" kind of way. If they cannot manage to make Duke actually relevant to our World I don't wanna see into his because, now I'm grown up and understand the issues(and possibly because I now have a daughter)he just isn't the knd of guy I ewant to spend quality time with. How to do it? IDK-this time would have been hard seeing as most of the game as done and was already pretty crappy because a lot WAS old and as a result GB had to polish the turd to selling level. Petrsonally, I also feel had this been a ne IOP it wuld have done even WORSE at the critics because it would JUST have been a shit game with nothing new to show us and a character that has a poor attitude towards women and an outdated one everywhere else. Only those reviewers with an old soft spot for DN have kept the title above a meta of about 40. Hell, now I think about it I've said it possibly deserves about 6/10 before but even I am only saying that because it's Duke.If it was some no mark I'd never played and liked before I'd give it 4/10 TOPS. Duke needs putting out to pasture because he was away so long it's hard to see how he could ever gro back into gaming relevance with the nasty opinions and attitudes he portrays-plus it' all very straight in the way they play him:you're MEANT o think Duke is super cool without irony and I just don't think 's in any sense cool or in any way self deprecating and therein lies the issue;can he ever be that AS Duke and I don't reckon he can. Sometimes, and i don't like saying it much, the critics are on the right track. They are with DNF-this isn't worth a full price purchase for many players outside the central cabal of Duke's hardcore proponents. Not for my money.
U go girl!
I've played it, it isn't really a bad game compared to other much more horrible games. Although I will not deny the fact that the game does indeed suffer, I will say this, does it really matter what people spend their money on? I mean it's their decision they can play this game whenever they so chose to. Even if it does indeed suck as many people say it does. I bet articles that bash Call of Duty games don't stop most of you that bash on this game, to not buy Call of Duty games . . . I don't know just a though.
A bad game for this age that´s what people dont understand.
It sells because many people want to have a good time with it and i dont blame them this game is a guilty pleasure mostly for nostalgia sake but also for fun.
Its FUN......simple as that..The only ones saying this game totally sucks & deserves 2/10 scores, are people that suck Activision's doodle by believing the hype that COD is the be all & end all of FPS games. These same Activision knob jockeys think every FPS has to follow the same formula as COD, they seem to think it is realistic as well, when I'm sure most veterans will tell you that a +10 does not appear above a fallen enemies head when you spray there brains all over a wall. Just enjoy your games people, fair enough, some people will not like Duke in any way shape or form, then others will be pretty blasey about it & not really think it's bad or good, others like me will enjoy the game for what it is & offers, then some will think it is the greatest game ever, & just like the people & media making it out as one of the worst games this gen. those that hail Duke as the best game are not really thinking about it subjectively. This game controls well, plays well, has variety in it's levels, has average graphics that were not possible 6-7 years ago (so the media clowns saying it has Xbox1 graphics look stupid), & mainly just offers a FUN experience. It's a fun, decent, game that failed to capatilize on some of the graphical capabilities available today (without being embarassingly bad), so while not looking like the next KZ4 it offers passable visuals on a FUN game. I capatilize fun, as this element of gaming seems to have been forgotten by many gamers, as well as most of the media. If you enjoy FPS's, give this game a go....Don't buy it if you hate it, rent it if you are so, so about it, or buy it if you like it......but don't bother whinging & whining about a game you hate, as it seems illogical for people who hate the game to bother posting on websites about there hate for it, as wouldn't it seem more logical to be off playing your idea of a better game, or posting on topics that relate to games you like?????
Good for you. Play it. Don't blog about it.
