Can you rephrase those sentences, without the G word?

Here is a old blog by a level designer from Bio Shock, about Doom levels.
http://vectorpoem.com/news/?p=74
from the article:
So because the player moves so quickly in Doom, and because most enemy attacks are dodgeable, the player can avoid a significant amount of damage simply by moving. A skilled player can often deal with large numbers of enemies sustaining hardly a scratch. This creates a feeling that’s quite rare in modern FPS: that you are powerful because you are agile, not because you’re a tank.

No G word. :D

Look at the first level of Duke 3D; you have two ways to enter the cinema. You remember the bathroom, the arcade, the cinema hall, etc. But you don't need to go through all those places to finish the level. So that image is wrong, and I'm proving it with small portions from E1L1, which is a very simple level.


Hollywood Holocaust is an incredibly-designed level and easily the most memorable in Duke Nukem 3D as far as I am concerned, but I definitely would not call it "very simple", as such description would better fit levels like Spin Cycle, Lunatic Fringe and particularly Stadium.

When you started calling me a "contrarian" for apparently failing to show the proper level of reverence towards forgettable Duke Nukem titles and when your insulting buddies got really really angry at the people who admit to enjoy the things that they do not and vice-versa. :rolleyes:

No, because they alter gameplay.

I may be wrong, but by set dressing I understand things like the ship you can see at the end of E4L8, the small outdoor area at the beginning of E2L8, the bank entrance you can see at the end of E3L1, etc.

Anyway, I am done with this thread. knopparp was right: the conversation has nothing to do with Duke Nukem Forever's 2001 Build. If you and your fellow Schrödinger's Douchebags want to continue being sore at other players for not being "real" Duke Nukem fans, I suggest we take this to the "Duke Being Put To Pasture?" thread.

On a serious note now if you don't mind me chiming in, I think the problem isn't about the points you're presenting, more so about the way you are presenting them. You seem to project a lot of preconceived assumptions over whoever dares to disagree with you, which distracts from the substance you want your posts to have, and you're oftentimes the one escalating the discussions (i.e.. sorry but 'contrarian' and 'douchebag' aren't on the same level of language at all). It's that apparent attitude that makes your posts tough to read, not what you're essentially trying to say.

Not saying no one else ever did the same thing and gave you unfair shit on here or on the Internet altogether but that's what it is, the Internet, expect the occasional miscommunication and if you're going to be a part of it, make sure you grow skin thick enough to endure different opinions and even the occasional gratuitous name calling you seem so prone to take part in as well, yourself.

I reject that accusation; I tried to remain as cordial as I could, despite some of the people I have been arguing with making no such effort or. The snide remarks I have made were made in response to them, but the difference is that I have at least the honesty of not trying to pass them off as "jokes".

No, not "douchebag"; Schrödinger's Douchebag, i.e. someone who makes deliberately shitty comments only to pretend they were just joking the moment they get the slightest amount of pushback.

Fuck you. Where were you when people freaked the fuck out because I merely pointed out that Duke Nukem tends to objectify women? Where were you when I got accused of not sounding like a "real" Duke Nukem fan for not looking back at the Duke Nukem franchise with rose-tinted glasses? Where were you when some douche nozzle decided to dedicate an entire comment to unprovokedly insult people who prefer more realistic protagonists over the mute blank slate type? I am not going to "grow a thicker skin" when others have shown no interest in doing so.

Take it from someone who used to be universally hated here. Stop. Right now. Look back at my old posts, learn from them. I look back now and despise my old posts. Take their advice, you're on the internet, thicken up that skin. This is no place for a snowflake.

That is not even remotely what happened. Let me remind you that you were the one who escalated this conflict. You can not play victim after dropping a line like the above before anyone else said anything.

"freaked the fuck out"

You seem to be under the impression that disagreement is a one-way street. And that people can not, in fact, disagree with your disagreement. Myself and Musically remained polite and cordial the entire time; the only reason we gave up is because you appeared to be either deliberately missing the point of our replies, or otherwise were so far off-mark we didn't feel it was worth continuing. Even futuretime, though he spoke roughly, never directly attacked you. He called the debate itself moronic, but not you.

When did this happen, exactly? Was it this?

View PostMusicallyInspired, on 20 March 2019 - 09:02 PM, said:

Serously, Johnnyboy. Why are you here? I'm trying to figure it out. You don't sound like a fan at all. I'm not gatekeeping or anything, you can be whatever kind of fan you want to be (or not if that may be the case), but you just seem like you have an awful lot to say about how wrong everyone is about Duke Nukem and his games. I'd guess that you're one of those like Kathy who loves the gameplay and just doesn't care about Duke the character, but you keep saying it's not a successful franchise and was never good to begin with. So why are you here trying to convince people who love Duke that they shouldn't love Duke because reasons? What's your endgame here, if you have one?


This was not an "accusation." This was not a "no real scotsman" argument. This was, quite literally, a question of why you were here since the only things you seemed to do was shit on him and his games. He even went on to say you could totally do that and it would be fine, but he just wanted to understand why.


This is something I have noticed about you. You seem to hitch onto the tiniest things in someone's post, then blow it up to massive proportions and completely ignore the rest of it. You've done that here, you've done that to me, you've done that to nearly everyone who has engaged in debate with you.

Fuegerstaf talked with no filter. Welcome to duke4.


Once again it was not a personal attack against you. He was clearly venting frustration with what he felt was a turn in modern gaming that he despised. You hadn't really even given indication beforehand that you were one of those people in that group. If you had, maybe it wouldn't have been so biting, but I can't speak for him. Maybe he would have gone on anyway.

Regardless however, the fact that you are this riled-up over what we'll call a "drive-by insult" or a scattershot insult indicates you really do not have thick skin of any kind. You get insulted by non-specific things, hitch on them, and get mad about it.


We would all be more than happy to have you in the community, but you seem hellbent on going to war with everyone who does not share your views, and assume everyone else is the same. Once again I would like to remind you that all we did was disagree with you. But you looked for places where you could be insulted and play victim, and therefore justify further offensive actions on your part.



No one is saying you can't have your opinions. No one. But if you're going to speak them in a public forum, it is only fair for those who disagree to challenge said opinions. A lot of us have a few contrarian opinions. But we discuss them. We bring up points and counterpoints. Some of us speak more rough than others, but that's just how it is here on duke4. If you wanna be here, go right ahead. I'm not going to stop you and I would love to see you as an active and productive member of this community. But you have to be able to meet us halfway, and roll with the occasional punch, not have a meltdown over driveby insults, and not hitch on the tiniest insignificant things in a post in an effort to dodge the rest of it.

Annoyed, yes, because Duke is a character that means a lot to me. But I don't recall going to the lengths you have. I simply stated my opinion. If I came off as too rude that only furthers what I'm trying to get across.

I clearly have neither a thick skin nor an open mind because of what? I don't think I even shared any of my views on here. Please tell me more, and again keep your extra two F's.

Also this is a public forum, not a private chat. People keep checking this thread for Duke related news only to see you calling people names left and right. You even just started it again with me. I'll put it on the account of the history of people giving you shit on here but come on, don't make me the fucking scapegoat of this shitstorm. You yet again just proved you couldn't be cordial to somebody being cordial to you.

I like the idea of you bringing up certain subjects but maybe they would be better suited for their own threads, if anything. I think a lot of the heat you're catching might have to do with people subconsciously getting fed up with your side commentary that is - again - not uninteresting per se, but can generate lengthy side discussions that derail threads.

Seriously now what have I done to you man? This is hilarious. Take a chill pill, we'll be OK.

edit - posted as you were editing your post. I don't give enough of a shit to PM you, I know you'll check this thread anyway, if not whatever. All is good on the Internet.

Nobody objectifies women more than women... and any complaints of being objectified you hear are nothing more than ancient primal survival mechanisms invoked to avoid being pursued by the likes of you, not by Duke.

That you haven't figured this out yet advertises to everyone here loud and clear where you're at.

Fuck those idiots. No, really. Fuck them. That's only because they don't have any personality at all themselves and need to "become" a fictional character because they cannot experience an adventure themselves because they are brainless fucktards who will never achieve anything (or are too young for a developed personality).

I really need to find the source for that again: There was a survey among WoW players. Those with a strong and developed personality who were also quite satisfied with their lives made characters close to themselves. MY take on that: They also cand fill the void of a Gordon Freeman or the stereotype of a Duke (who has no developing character arc and is only a flat stereotype).
Those who weren't happy with their lives or had a weak personality made the wildest characters with the wildest names ... because then they could be somebody else. Those people need a fleshed out ingame-character as they are too undedeveloped to fill out the shell of a game's main protagonist, like Duke, Gordon, Doomguy, etc ...

Again: Fuck them.

Well, I understand now why people hate making themselves even in Sims games. I could never quite understand why people hate the idea of making characters close to themselves to experience various adventures, like seriously, I've been asking myself lately when I saw a similar poll for Sims at some point and was surprised that people hated to make themselves there and there were majority of this kind of people. They seriously must hate themselves if it's that bad. Still, it creates a paradox because you can't really write a good character if you have no imagination, haven't read books or at least lack some personal experience which would make good contribution to the character writing which is maybe why a lot of various media including books suffer from terrible writing.

Though there is nothing wrong with established characters assuming they were written well. It works better in books because there is more talent there, but good writing isn't alien to video games either, especially when some of them are based on literature and people put some love into making games. Either way it works the best when you're able to feel any sympathy for the established character, I mean, why would you like to play absolutely terribly written, unlikable and obnoxious faggot?

Spending 12 pages of this thread trying to make a 'real' argument about misogyny in Duke Nukem is ridiculous. The game takes place in a cartoon, action-film universe, not real life.

"I'm going to write a 20,000 word dissertation on the political, economic and cultural relationship of post-war Germany and the United States in the 1980s. To illustrate the various points of my dissertation, I will use clips from the film 'Die Hard'". Jesus wept.
