* CrossesTheLineTwice: The fact that the aliens are rapists, and Duke's aloof attitude toward that fact, was intended to be this. [[DudeNotFunny Many people didn't see it that way.]]

* DudeNotFunny: One of the less popular aspects involve the Capture the Babe mode. When you grab the other team's "babe", sometimes she'll start to freak out and struggle as you take her back to your base, so you have to give her a smack on her behind to quiet her down. It rekindled the debate on [[http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2011-03-25-slapped-down-editorial sexism in games]]. ** In the single player campaign, Duke finds the Holson Twins after nearly two hours, only to discover they've been [[RapeAsDrama raped and impregnated]]. Duke tries to liven up the moment with an IncrediblyLamePun at the Twins' expense ("Well, it looks like you're... [[GlassesPull fucked]]"). This was supposed to show how Duke's humor is always appropriate [[CanonSue simply because he says so]], but critics didn't see it that way.

* RatedMForMoney: There's a reason why its ESRB description is the trope's image: Just look at its [[http://www.esrb.org/ratings/synopsis.jsp?Certificate=30650&Title=Duke%20Nukem%20Forever&searchkeyword=Duke%20Nukem ESRB description]].

** Gearbox, the company now in charge of ''Duke Nukem Forever'', is also the one which ported ''{{Halo}}'' to the PC. In game, Duke finds Spartan armor and calls anyone who wears it a "pussy".

* CrossesTheLineTwiceSeinfeldIsUnfunny: In a meta way. George Broussard wanted the game to be a collection of every new and awesome mechanic he could find, but with all the delays the game was released after those mechanics stopped being novel.

unfortunate implications need citations
* UnfortunateImplications: [[CaptureTheFlag Capture the Babe]] mode has your team capturing "Babes" (''Duke Nukem Forever''[='s=] version of a flag), and slapping said babe's bottom to calm them down when they try to distract you.
