I would have still liked to see the game see the light of day, anyone who was a teenage nerd in the early 90's surely feels the same way.
Duke3d was one of my favorite games back in the day, my feeling is that pretty much every single PC game since was too politicaly correct, too nice, too much in line with the media and corporate culture (apart from a few notable exceptions)
Duke was a fuck-it-all antihero and I would have loved to see some more of his antics. We sorely need it in this sterile "baby gloves on" day and age.
I have a nifty blue line!
