DNF Sighting

Shacknews has brief word that they've gotten the chance to witness Duke Nukem Forever being played first-hand, though they were apparently not allowed to lay hands on 3D Realms' long-in-development shooter. Their impressions are a bit vague, but very positive, as they come away saying the game looks like it "will easily stand apart from the crowd in both visual and gameplay styles." Hopefully that crowd will not be QUAKE VII and Unreal Tournament 2015.

Not exactly. Duke Nukem 3D set the bar on interactivity.

It's hardly off the mark. The game came out over ten years ago. Whatever it contributed has been improved upon, surpassed, and even made obsolete since then.


Ok smarty. Name me a 'modern' FPS game that has ALL of these interactive tidbits:

Kick trash can, rats come out
Light switches that actually can be used
Mirrors
Strippers who do stuff for cash (and they did..)
Outlets that shock you when used
Jetpacks
One-way mirrors
Camera terminals that let you use them
Let you freeze then shatter an opponent, T2 style
Flush toilets
Open/Close doors manually (not auto doors that you run into)

And more, I'm sure I'm forgetting.

You may dislike the timetable that Duke is on, but you can't sit there and ignore what it did for gaming.
