If this were any other week, American McGee’s return to awesome sequel Alice: Madness Returns or Child of Eden (the latest from Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi) would have it hands down, but this is a significant moment in gaming history. Duke Nukem Forever, a game that to many defined the word “vaporware”, finally comes out after fourteen years. For that, I must make this historical title my recommendation.
For a reminder of what it would have looked like had it come out back in 1998, see the below video.
