These Were The Hottest Games Of 1997
Created by Fox Van Allen on
Duke Nukem 64
The over-the-top, intentionally offensive Duke Nukem 3D got a mild makeover for its port to the N64 -- there are no strippers or steroids in Nintendo's version, and many of his grittier catch phrases were edited.
Its sequel, Duke Nukem Forever, spent over a decade in development hell before its brutally disappointing and unfunny 2011 release.
