** From critics as well as average gamers; for example, one such reviewer labeled ''DNF'''s fans as "[[http://gotgame.com/2011/07/16/duke-nukem-forever-refuses-to-die/ gullible twelve year olds]]."
** [[http://bigdamnpictures.blogspot.com/2011/06/reasons-why-duke-nukem-forever.html This guy]] goes so far as to call out pretty much ''all'' game critics who didn't express disgust at the game's sexism and condemn the game as terrible, whether or not they even ''liked'' the game.

** Somewhat mitigated by the fact that you can detonate pipebombs while the Octabrains are holding the projectile to hurl back at you, guaranteeing that they'll be caught in the blast radius. This is actually one of the best ways to beat them.

* HeartwarmingMoments: A meta example happened according to [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/111166-10-Year-Old-Duke-Nukem-Forever-Preorder-Honored-With-Swag#&gid=gallery_373&pid=1 this article]]. After it was revealed that some dude kept his preorder receipt for years, Gearbox gave him a signed version of the Balls of Steel edition, as well as a crapton more swag.

* InternetBackdraft: The cover art seen above is rather unpopular with the fan base. Just head on to the Gearbox forums and look in [[http://gbxforums.gearboxsoftware.com/showthread.php?t=116434 this topic]]. Try and say the cover represents the game accurately, how Duke looks cool, or that his left arm looks perfectly fine to you.

** Interestingly, now that the game's been released, the Vaporware poster boy has become ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}: Episode 3''.

* 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.
