Shack PSA: Duke Nukem Forever $10 on Steam

How much would you pay for Duke Nukem Forever? $50? $40? $20? Perhaps $10, which is how much it costs in Steam's mid-week sale.

How much would you be willing pay for Duke Nukem Forever? Critics may have largely rejected it, but video gaming's favourite running joke certainly found a fair few fans, and one has to be curious after all these years of waiting, yes? Publisher 2K dropped the standard PC price to $20 on PC in September, and now it's down to only $10 in a Steam mid-week sale.

Steam's sale marks the release of DNF's 'Hail to the Icons Parody Pack' downloadable content, which adds new maps, modes, and other gubbins to multiplayer for $10. If you're a member of Duke's First Access Club, you'll have a key to get the DLC for free, even if you haven't bought the original game yet.

Head on over to Steam to buy Duke Nukem Forever for $10. The deal will run until 6pm Pacific on Thursday.

      If someone paid me $10 I'd still say no, time NOT playing that is a far more valuable commodity

        Exactly, one play through of the demo was enough. If I want to play some duke I'll go play DN3D instead of this pile.

        Good idea, I got it from impulse for 9.99 and it wasn't worth it. I mostly purchased the game and played through it just so I could get all those years waiting behind me. To be honest I have played games that are a lot worse then DNF but it still wasn't a good game.

        haha, DNF isn't 3Drealms anymore so hopefully we will stop getting these dumbass Duke ports to every electronic device on the market.

          It really was amazing how much they were trying to milk that game.

            Yeah it was ridiculous, I have some old posts about this very thing, it seems 3DR was too focused on re-re-re-re-releasing Duke3D on the Etch-a-Sketch as the new platform of the week. Dumb asses.

      Finally, a pricepoint where I won't feel so bad if it turns out to be a crappy game.

        I rented it from Redbox, played it for about 3 days off and on and only kept going just to see how much worse it could get. I quit about halfway through as I couldn't stand it anymore and had much better games to bide my time with. There are so many, "Oh my God, this is bad.." moments. I don't think I could bring myself to play it again as fun as watching the trainwreck was.

          I think the fact that you're literally playing with shit in the first 5 minutes metaphorically describes your experience for the rest of the game.

      Is this really a sale? I've seen it at $10 so much it should be the standard price.

      I wouldn't pay for Duke.

      Life is too short to waste on games like this, even at $10.

      I played this game and while it certainly wasn't great, it's probably worth $10. It's entirely playable.
