50+ Epic Artwork, Illustrations & 3D Design of Duke Nukem w/ Quotes & History – Tribute To A Video Game Legend.

Ok so growing up I loved video games. I don’t care who you are, at one point in your life you played, or saw Duke Nukem – and you thought it was fun, and/or awesome. It is definitely one of the most memorable video games of all time. I know for a fact that my fascination with technology, computers, design, programming – everything I do today – came from my love of video games as a child growing up playing them. If video games never existed, I doubt I would have became interested with technology in the first place – so good thing they were around :). I don’t know about you but I LOVEEEEE Video game history – so if you have never heard of Duke Nukem – or if you HAVE and you are like me and want to re-live the nostalgia that comes along with games like that, I included some cool history of duke videos at the end of this post (or you can wiki it like everything else). My earliest memories of Computer Gaming were with Duke Nukem 3D – it was that game that sparked my interest in making my parents get me a computer (even if it was a little over my head at the time, it was still way fun!!)! I have rounded up some amazingly inspirational & nostalgic Artworks of the king – Duke Nukem – for your viewing pleasures below. We all know one of the reasons why Duke was so memorable, was because of all of the epic things that he would say, so I included some of his one liners throughout 😉
