There are few FPS characters as iconic as Duke Nukem, known for his cheesy one-liners and general machismo. Duke Nukem 3D made that character a reality, and the game played like an 80s action-blockbuster. When aliens attack Earth and try to steal all of our babes, Duke declares that it’s “time to kick ass and chew bubblegum, and I’m all out of gum”.
Duke Nukem 3D brought a healthy dose of humor to the otherwise serious genre, blending it with bloody and hectic gunplay. Players could equip guns like the Devastator, which fires micro-rockets at a blisteringly high rate of fire. Like the action movies it takes inspiration from, Duke Nukem 3D is a whole lot of silly and obnoxious fun.
