Eyes Are On You, Gordon Freeman

Duke Nukem Forever has finally released. After 14 years of development, the title has actually hit store shelves. It's quite a surprise, really. Duke Nukem was announced when I was 6-7 years old, and now I'm 20. Over those many years, I've grown up to become the gamer that I am.

After DotA2 is released then it will be....

"Rise and shine, Mr. Freeman. Rise and shine. Not that I wish to imply you have been sleeping on the job".........."So, wake up, Mr. Freeman. Wake up and smell the ashes.".......The G-man

People will get excited for the E3 2012 and then BOOM....a totaly new game which they've wasted their time on instead of HL3.

What bugs me the most is that DoTA2 is a PC exclusive and Valve over the years have taken an interest to consoles.

It's going to be a dry year for console owners who are waiting for a Valve game.

Console owners just got Portal 2 two months ago.

Also DotA is a real-time strategy hybrid game that most consolers no clue about it game play as RTS are not popular on consoles.

Erm....yeah PC owners got Portal 2 aswell. It's not like it was just for consoles, I;m just mentioning that with Valves recent interest in consoles these past few years they announce a game exclusive for the PC and if you take a look around the forums, not that many people give crap about it except for the DoTA2 fans.

It may have been 7 years since Half Life 2 released, but with no official announcement of Episode 3 being in development until 2008, we can't even begin to compare it to Duke's dev cycle. A month ago LA Noire released, and that's actually been in development for 7 years. Aliens: Colonial Marines has been in progress for 6, releasing spring next year, hopefully. An actual dev cycle versus the amount of time between one sequel to the next are different - Diablo 2 released in 2000, but it wasn't until 2008 Diablo 3 was announced, and still has a way to go until release. I can't treat that like it's been 11 years in development though. Like wise, we waited 10 years for SCII, and now we're still waiting for the final two installments for the campaign. Even RAGE, shown as a tech demo in 2007, must have been in development for longer than that. As much as I would love to seen the ending for Half Life 2, there's plenty of other games I've waited far longer for, and am still waiting on.
