Duke Nukem Forever is a sequel of the heavily-worshiped FPS, whose origins reach the beginning of the 1990s. After many years of silence, and a turbulent development cycle – during which the production was taken away from 3D Realms, and given to Gearbox Software – Duke Nukem Forever was released in a much more modern form. The premise of gameplay remains unchanged for the most part: gamers play as a muscled macho, who eliminates hordes of hog-like alien enemies in an spectacular manner, while saving lives of attractive females. The mechanics were enhanced with, for example, the ability to finish off enemies, drive vehicles, or use stationary weapons, environment destruction, and regenerating health (dubbed as ego) bar. The protagonist can use a slew of ridiculous guns, among which one can find the shrinker – a gun which shrinks enemies. Duke Nukem Forever is still a brutal shooter, full of raw humor, mostly expressed in the protagonist’s remarks, voiced by John St. John.
