The first-person shooter genre was brought to life by a handful of incredible titles in the early-mid 1990s. Wolfenstein 3D and Doom were pioneering projects for their time, but the evolution of the formula came thick and fast, and one of the games to carry the torch for the genre was Duke Nukem 3D.

Duke Nukem 3D featured smooth gameplay, tight controls and engaging level design, but was also unapologetic in its approach to comedy. The license is known for its floozy, provocative nature, and the liberal amount of violence in the release only served to make it even more controversial.

The IP was rebooted some time later, but because the bitter taste of Duke Nukem Forever may still linger on the tongue of fans of the property, Duke Nukem 3D's innovation is often forgotten.

The 1996 title is still fun all these years later, and more than suffices to scratch the Duke Nukem itch should it ever arise. With the context of Duke Nukem Forever, fans will be even more stoked that Duke Nukem 3D's stellar gameplay and charming visuals hold up better than ever in 2022.


Fan of ducks, ice tea and escapism. Spends much of his time persistently saying 'I have so much studying to do' before watching Zoey 101 for the millionth time. Thinks Uncharted 3 is the best one.
