Duke Nukem 3D

Guess what I just found a copy of...


Oh yeah, baby.

Ok, so maybe I didn't find it so much as my brother got it from a friend, but the fact remains that this is awesome.

If you don't know what the hype behind Duke3D is (now that DNF is finally making it's debut in a few months), it's very similar to Doom in terms of gameplay (I will do a little blog about Doom soon :D). What that means, essentially, is find guns, kill bad guys, find more guns, kill more bad guys. I love games like this, where the only strategy is don't die. While I do enjoy FPSs like Call of Duty or Left4Dead, the frantic craziness of hundreds of bad guys against 1 rocket launcher toting super human is just wonderful. (sometimes not having a strategy to playing is the most fun).

In terms of what sets it apart from Doom, however, is the higher level of violence and political incorrectness. It was probably one of the only mainstream games with dancing strippers. It wasn't just an incredibly fun game... it was an experiment, pushing the boundries of what could and could not be accessible in video games. And I love every minute of it.

  24. I highly recommend some of the HD mods that are out there. Every texture gets an upgrade and you have a full range of movement we've come to expect in a modern FPS while still retaining all the old school Duke charm.
