That's it in a nutshell. Duke was nothing special. It was ridiculous even then. It's only because of it's lord of the vaporware title it became something of a meme that stuck around. People speak of the Beatles with fondess and reverence. They speak of Duke as a bad joke. It's clear that Randy simply does not "get it" anymore than any other pre-pubescent boy, so don't try and defend him and his asinine analogy or you don't get it either, Sho and PA.
I disagree with your interpretation of how the franchise was regarded in the past but your last sentence was your typical douchebag response towards those who disagree so there's no point in trying to debate this with you.
