[[SavedFromDevelopmentHell Against all odds]], it finally became available on June 14th, 2011 for UsefulNotes/{{Xbox360}}, UsefulNotes/PlayStation3, and PC on DVD or via UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}, just in time for Duke's Twentieth Anniversary. The [[http://www.dukenukemforever.com/hailtotheicons Hail to the Icons Parody Pack]] was released on October 11th as the game's first [[DownloadableContent DLC]] pack. It includes four new maps, each making fun of an iconic FPS series with a parody-weapon based on said series, and three new game modes. A second DLC pack titled "[[Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe The Doctor Who Cloned Me]]", released in December 2011, has a smaller campaign taking place right after DNF's ending which gives proper closure to the story along with four new multiplayer maps.

* SirSwearsalot: Dylan apparently is unable to complete a sentence without the using a single vulgar word. In fact, he had said "fuck" more times than Duke himself.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The extended development makes the game an unintentional GenreThrowback to 90s FPS games such as ''Duke Nukem 3D'' itself.

* GenreKiller: ''Duke Nukem Forever'' came out in 2011, where it bombed spectacularly. A look at mainstream AAA games from 2012 onward suggests a period in which {{Fanservice}} and {{MsFanservice}} characters rapidly became a DiscreditedTrope, at least amongst Western-developed games in the AAA bracket. Ironically, other than a short strip club level and the Holsom twins (who only interact with you for a couple of minutes), ''Duke Nukem Forever'' actually had relatively little of either, though Duke's hedonistic reputation preceeded him quite a bit.

** RuleOfFunny: The number [[FreudWasRight 69]] is the ArcNumber, after all. Of course, considering the US in the VideoGame/DukeNukem universe has gone through a MadScientist trying to TakeOverTheWorld, ''two'' {{Alien Invasion}}s, and maybe even some time traveling baddies and mutant monsters, depending on whether you place the console games and ''Manhattan Project'' in Canon, it wouldn't be a stretch to think that [[InferredHolocaust various Presidents got offed during the meantime]]

* {{Badass}}: Duke, of course, but special mention goes to Crusty Old Man, the crane operator during Duke's fight with the Octoking, who not only survived the battle but also hurled a few insults during it as though it's all part of his contract.
--> ''"Whoa! There's somethin shakin' the crane! Come on out, ya bastard! I'll donkey punch ya in the blow hole!"''
