Duke Nukem Forever shows its serious side in 'What Would Duke Do' video series

Bad news Duke Nukem fans: Gearbox has made the long-awaited return of the 90s video icon both serious and somber. If you're looking for proof, look no further than the two recently released gameplay trailers for Duke Nukem Forever.

In the video series entitled "What Would Duke Do," the game's titular hero shows his age and Gearbox Software's new serious direction when he questions his own motives behind the picking up and throwing of randomly discovered excrement.

It seems pretty clear the entire thing is ruined because the Duke we knew wouldn't bat an eye at the prospect of throwing feces around the universe. The second video features Duke hijacking a jetpack. We're not sure who Gearbox ruined that part, but we're sure they did somehow.

You've disappointed us, Gearbox.
