Duke Nukem Forever Demo Today

The 2K Games Forums have word that the playable demo for Duke Nukem Forever should now be available on Xbox 360 for all Xbox LIVE Gold members, and should be released for all Steam owners around noon eastern time today: "As you all know, last week, after 15 long years, against all odds, Duke Nukem Forever launched. Today we are giving people the chance to try the game for themselves. The Duke Nukem Forever demo will go live on Xbox 360 at 2 AM PDT and on Steam at 9 AM PDT. (We are currently working with Sony to get the demo out as soon as possible too.) If you haven't played DNF yet, now is your chance to try out part of gaming history and have some big fun Duke style -- check it out and tell us what YOU think." Thanks Voodoo Extreme.

Please, please leave the gameplay as-is. All we want is updated graphics and music. Please do what LucasArts did for their Monkey Island reboots. I guarantee you will win a whole new generation of gamers with minimal development costs.

I don't think that works, unless you have a specific word for "classic"

Some games would be fine: Tie Fighter, X-Wing, Privateer, etc.

But...

Doom 1 and Doom 2 - very fun in my youth. However now-a-days you aren't going to win anybody over with a re-hash with a new graphics engine. It was too basic: only movement, activate, shoot. I'd still find it fun, but I doubt it will win anyone over more than CoD or whatever.

Leisure Suit Larry - a fun and funny game with a mix of graphics and text based gaming. I'd get a kick out of it, but honestly that wouldn't fly so well. The whole "type in the commands" thing would probably make the youngsters today want to cut themselves.

Full Throttle (and similar) - I'd enjoy a remake but I doubt the average youngster today would enjoy that kind of game.

I could list more counter examples but you get the idea. As fun as some of the classics were, their mechanics are too primitive for today or were for a different generation.
