Duke Nukem, let's be honest here, he is the bad-ass of video games. Duke doesn't go shark fishing with a fishing pole; he does it with his bare-freaking-hands. Duke doesn't need a spaceship to save the galaxy from some giant, life-force eating apocalypse; he'll just wait for them to get to where he is and punch their general in the face.
With that said, is 2K games doing the forbidden game from our childhood past justice? Well the answer to that question is: both yes and no.
