Duke Nukem Forever footage looks… meh

"I'm the Duke. I NEVER come early."

By now the most famous game never to have been made, Duke Nukem Forever almost, almost crossed the publishing finish line sometime this year. But legal woes, perhaps owing to the 13 ridiculous years the game spent in development, pulled the plug on the game before it saw the light of day.
Duke fans are left to wonder what might have been. In our opinion, this video gives a very clear answer: not that much, hey.
The footage shows something that feels a helluva lot like a 1996-era FPS (with a little graphics polish). Not good enough, developers. The hard truth of game design, post-Y2K, is that it’s harder than ever to impress your audience. The one-liners? Well, we did enjoy those. Watch out for language, kids…
