It's a Duke game. It was always going to sell well, regardless of whether it was awesome, mediocre or terrible. The demand for a game is based on primarily its brand, not its quality. That's why Activision manages to recycle CoD so many times. Eventually the lack of substance and/or innovation wears down the sales though; check out what's left of the Medal of Honor franchise.

lol you're a dumb --- call of duty is the call of duty for pc , geezus , teh frist COD game was pc only for a year before it got ported to console LOL and every call of duty gmae has had a pc release.
DNF stands alone , it's one of those games you either hate or love. personaly i loved it i though it was funny as hell , i didnt see where the hell people were saying is was mysoganistic (male chauvist yeah , but that a far cry from mysogany , which means to hate women). I thought some of the level design was just super awsome with only a few levels being mediocre in design, the graphics were dated .. but meh what can you expect from a game that has been in development for 14 years.
and Duke was duke , i don't see where he came off as a creepy pervert all of a sudden to some reviewers ??? think they just grew out of that style of humor. i really thought the game was deserving of 70-80% rating instead of the 40-50 that most reviewers slapped on it. It ws certainly awhiff of fresh air in the current game land scape which seems to be stepping on egg shells with politicans and bending over backwards to please nutty parent groups. ask me this is teh kind of game that needs releasing every now and then if for no other reason than to slap our sensitve "pussy-a--ed" society in the face . hoenstly i'm really sick of our touchy society that crys foul at every thing
Who are the poeple who has the actual money that can buy games? ADULTS. And who are the people who anticipated duke nukem more than anyone? ADULTS. And who are the people who already had the privilege of playing the past duke nukem games when they were actually new and ground breaking? Kids back then that are now ADULTS.
Isn't the fact of something hooribly gone wrong, and easily solved with a bigger gun the base point of Duke Nukem? So why would that say its a worser release then the other releases? Another then the fact they couldnt get something that was "wrong" "right". But saying knowing Right doesnt mean wrong though as well, unfortunately.
But to say, you get the best stuff at the beginning of any game is to say probably, you can beat a game without playing it. Idk.. Should of still been good anyways, long waited for the release if i recall correctly.

Why waste your money? Serious Sam 3 is coming soon.
Im telling you people its the boobs... barely any other game lets you see naked women (or aliens) and when they do its nothing spectacular. Yet you can see someone's head explode in your sniper scope and that's fine... no worries about making kids violent or numb to violence... nahhh but show a digital nipple and the world will end! What's that old hippie expression make love not war? Cant I do both?

HA HA HA HA HA exactly... and probably for 20 bucks at launch too! Might even look better than DNF judging from the screenshots Ive seen.
