A Simple Question: Duke Nukem Forever (Revisited)

With the release of Duke Nukem Forever, for better or worse according to many reviews, the end of a long chapter in Duke’s history has been reached.  While I have no doubts that Gearbox was thinking of the NEXT Duke game when they picked up the franchise to release Forever, it still begs the question:

Will you (or did you) buy Duke Nukem Forever at full price?

(You may need to refresh the page to see the poll below)

I have to say that I was disappointed when I found out the game would be releasing for $60.  I genuinely thought that had the game been priced at $40, it would have been an acknowledgement of “Hey, we know this game isn’t exactly current gen, but we wanted to pay homage, and give gamers a chance to play Duke.”  Yes, I know that’s a long acknowledgement.  As it is, it will be discarded by many as an overpriced and outdated game.  So at $60, I’ll have to say I will not be buying Duke Nukem Forever.  Once it hits the bargain bins, though, I’m all over it.

    The demo just let me know to stay away. I wont buy the game at any price, its not very good at all. I thought it would be good, i had very high hopes… it dosent even accomplish mindless fun shooting unfortunately.

  • I think it’s a perfect bargain bin game.
