Platform Nation’s “A Simple Question”: Duke Nukem Forever

Duke Nukem Forever was one of the feature games for me at Pax East, and I can say with full enthusiasm that it will be a very fun, and very loyal game, bringing close to a 12 year development cycle that not many other games would have been able to survive.  But will it be the last?  This week’s ASQ asks just that:

Will Duke Nukem Forever be the last Duke Nukem game?

There are a lot of reasons why you could say no (why would Gearbox buy the rights only to release a game that wasn’t even theirs?  Isn’t there money in the Duke Nukem brand to be had with more games? Doesn’t the gaming community need more games featuring strippers?), but if this game isn’t a commercial success, will it cause the developers to be gun-shy about trying another game?  Let Platform Nation know what you think.  The simple answer is above, feel free to elaborate with a comment, or yell it out in #PNASQ on Twitter.

A Simple Question (ASQ) is a weekly segment for Platform Nation.  Each week on Monday,  I’ll  ask a question on Twitter at #PNASQ. Give a response and let the world know what you think; there is no right or wrong answer here. If you have a suggestion for a question, hit me up on twitter @vttym.
