Duke Nukem Forever: barely playable, not funny, rampantly offensive

article In the first few moments of Duke Nukem Forever, your character pees in a urinal and then earns an achievement for reaching into a toilet and extracting a piece of human excrement.

It’s very promising, though – as of December 2017, we have many cases where the games have really stood out because of their VR capabilities.

So is the VR game worth buying? Read the article and find the answer.
