Op Ed

Wired.com - Goodbye, Good Riddance to Antiquated Action Hero Duke Nukem.
We still love our action heroes, but we love them with a touch of humanity. Instead of simply fawning over men with huge muscles, we crave the tortured superhuman archetypes of comic book films, like Hugh Jackman in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. We’re drawn to Robert Downey Jr.’s believable portrayal of a playboy in a weaponized suit of armor in Iron Man. Characters like these deliver huge explosions and cool-as-hell quips before offing the bad guys, but they also give us a glimpse of the human condition through their emotional turmoil and actual acting.

IGN - Intelligent Design.
The polar opposite is the stubborn camera, as used to underwhelming effect in Path of Neo. Here the camera would simply refuse to play nicely, looking in the opposite direction to the action or, worse still, moving in for extreme close-ups of Neo's buttocks at the most inopportune times. It was like swallowing the red pill shortly after the accidental ingestion of a mixture of Toilet Duck, horse tranquillisers and someone else's sick. For most of us, this was not ideal.

Ok enough with the piling on gaming media.

3DRealms screwed up. We all know that. No need to release attack after attack, especially on the Duke character itself. Most of the whiners writing about this weren't even PC gamers when it came out.

I for one will miss it.
