I also like this one although I'm not sure where it's from originally. Looks like an alternative take on the Duke Nukem 3D box art.
Indeed. Douche Nukem is the worst Nukem.

never bothered with DNF and probably never will, but I always liked the grizzled Willis-esque thing they were going for here. So much of his look consisted of these distinct 90's trends that didn't age well at all imo, but here it always felt like they'd found a way to hang onto it without it being the first thing you'd notice.

Mine is probably this, actually:
I always liked the DN2 cover, but the updated version was a great, well, update!

I always thought it was a missed opportunity to make Duke more like his DN2 incarnation. Dorky badass who knows which end of the gun goes boom and is famous because he saved the Earth a couple of times, but otherwise is a likeable goof, like Schwarzenegger or The Rock. I'm quite sure such depiction could also win him some more fans, because imo the whole "80's action hero" was parodied to death between Duke 3D and Forever, and DNF fixation on tits and phallic symbolism was awkward. I really liked the proposed storyline to Duke4Ever, it's that zany idiocy that Duke games miss - I mean, Proton steals California, President of USA is happy with it, and Duke only goes into action because he has a mansion on Malibu? This is not height of satire, but I'd take it anytime over any part of Forever.
