If you just have fun with it, it's quite entertaining, just imagine you were playing 10 yrs ago...

The nostalgia factor is strong with you, judge the game on it's merits, it's turrible, just turrible.

If all you need to consider a game good is Duke Nukem in it than yea it's pretty good. Otherwise, it's a shitty bordering on mediocre game.

I'm enjoying it and not upset at all I bought it. I would go one step further than OP and say it's a pretty decent game. Which is praise from me because I don't remember the last game I even liked.

We don't need a new thread for your opinion OP. Also, your opinion is wrong. It's an appallingly shitty game.

You can't remember a game you liked? If I had that negative of a view on modern gaming I'd probably just stop gaming. Seems like a waste of time and money if you're struggling so much to have fun, isn't it? The only game I can remember NOT liking in recent memory was LA Noire. Everything else has been at least worth my time, of not totally worth the money. Infamous 2, Portal 2, and Crysis 2 were all good to different degrees. I've felt it's been a pretty solid year for games thus far and there's still good stuff on the horizon.

Hello, unrealistic and irrational and unreasonable reviewer.
No, his opinion is the common and sensible one.

The opinion that DNF is in any way good is the unrealistic, irrational, and unreasonable view ;)

Dude, seriously? You post some awfully ridiculous crap sometimes, but this just takes the cake.

Do you have any idea how retarded that sounds? Imagine you were playing it 10 years ago?? Really? By that logic, every bad-to-mediocre game ever released should never be criticized because we can pretend we're in 2001 or 1992 or 1972 and all we have is Pong.

Give me a break.

If I was pretending it was 2001 I'd have to raise my standards even higher than they already are, so I see the OP's point as being counter productive.

I didn't like Crysis 2, haven't played Portal 2 yet. Last game I enjoyed outside of DNF was RE:5 or maybe Braid. I don't game much as PC gaming has went down the crapper over the past 5 years IMHO. I bought DNF because DN 3D was a game I played the hell out of. I enjoyed the new one much more than I did Crysis 2. DNF has personality where a Crysis 2 type game tries to make it just off graphics.

I take back not liking games, I looooved SF:IV and will be ordering the AE that's due out in a month or something.

Cool story bro

I just fired up Big Rigs. Pretty decent game if compared to 1980.

Oh wait...no. Pong is still better.

Fair enough. I never played DN 3D as much as a lot of folks, but the whole 2 weapon limit really puts me off. There's just no ridiculous shooters anymore, and I was hoping DNF wouldn't bend over and take so many modern "realistic shooter" mechanics as it did. Might be worth it for me down the road during a sale though.

gorcorps have you played Bulletstorm yet? That's a ridiculous shooter that doesnt rely on the same cliches and devices as modern realistic shooters.

I just have FUN with gaming guys...

Some of you act like the very balance of LIFE hangs in these games...

I THOUGHT I was jaded before reading the PC GAMING threads...

I'm rather optimistic compared to most...

They are games...

And who gives a &^% if I start a thread on DNF, do threads cost any money? Do you pay a nickel every time you read one? Are you incapable of not participating in the thread if you don't like the title?
