The fact that it was #2 makes me just as sad.

I don't know... a game finally being released after 14-some years only debuting at number 2? Or maybe that's what you mean.

That's a good point, but what I meant is that it's a piece of garbage and it still sold better than games that deserve attention.
Generally it'd be easy to agree that games that are better deserve the attention more so than bad ones, but really, it's Duke Nukem, everyone that's been playing games for a while now, should pay attention to Duke Nukem Forever, if only to notice how shitty it is.

After hearing about the working conditions at Team Bondi, I can't help but be a little disgusted that LA Noire is sitting there at the top.

"Detective Cole Phelps, badge 247"

"What can i help you with, detective?"

"Any messages?"

"Yes, Coroner Carruthers has asked you to come down to the morgue to positively identify the Dukie Nukem gentleman you murdered on sales charts."

"Thank you, ma'am"

How fucking depressing that Duke Nukem is in second place. Fuck me.

But the last thing you want to do is give money to crap and encourage them to produce more crap. I have the same policy for movies. I don't watch shitty movies anymore just to see how shitty they are. Not only is it a waste of money, but there's a more important waste of time attached to that where I could either be doing something productive or at least wasting my time with something good.

I feel shame for having contributed to the DNF sales number.

Edited by Quacktastic

Duke Nukem in 2 isn't that weird really.  If you break down individual formats it's probably more like Infamous, LA noire, LA noire, Zelda, Duke, Duke, Duke - in which case there isn't a ton of competition for its spot.
 
360 numbers are crazy.  Kinect I guess?

OK, sorry. I do agree. If we're really talking serious, Duke Nukem Forever is total crap, and deserves no attention when we compare it to all the other great games out there. I have the game, and I played about five minutes of it until I was done, my older brother wanted it for his birthday this month, so he got it on release, and he beat it. And that's good enough for me. MAN! Don't bring movies into this... I hate bad movies. *goes off an' cries* I just saw this movie called Adaption, it was quite good. Go see it if you haven't yet. I love Blade Runner, Alien/Aliens, Avatar, and every other fantastic movie you can think of. Goodbye. 
 
That was weird huh? Now raise an eyebrow.

DNF is number two alright...
Posted by AbeTheGreatest

sucks thats Shadows of the Damned didnt sell well, but even I didnt buy it. As much as I want to  play it it just doesnt seem to be worth $60 but its definitely a buy once it hits about 20 or 30

Edited by Yummylee

I am a fellow Shadows of The Damned consumer! Really is a crying shame it couldn't least hit somewhere at the bottom. It's not amazing, by any means, and naturally with the unrealistic expectations set by any kind of Suda/Shinji project, it's disappointing. But it deserves revenue dammit! 
 
Also inFAMOUS 2... good on ya! You most certainly deserve a solid spot near the top.

@Abyssfull: Agreed, I picked up SOTD on a whim and have loved it so far.

already afresh admiring with Patrick affairs humans Alice and caliginosity. blessed to accept LA Noire outsell battle.
Lol
Posted by iam3green

well that sucks for duke. i'm surprised that black ops is still there. i would have thought people would stop buying it since everyone has the game.

Posted by Shakezula84

I'm glad to see LA Noire continue to get sales. It was a solid game and an interesting concept. I know the games format isnt really built for a sequel, but I wouldn't mind playing LA Noire 2 on the next generation of consoles.

Posted by Ben99

Whoa ! how the fuck did Duke game get that sales figure?!

Posted by mrsmiley

Glad to see Duke at #2. Definitely a misunderstood and under-appreciated game. I loved it. Lots of fun. :)

Posted by AstroCow
@AssInAss: Agreed. It's my personal GOTY thus far. The imagination and art direction are fantastic. Absolutely love Alice: Madness Returns.
Posted by Redbullet685

How is CoD still in the top 10? Who doesn't own it already?

Posted by buzz_killington

Duke just did a number two on the whole NPD. Awesome.

Posted by tobygw

Duke was probably number 1 including all the Steam sales.

Posted by YukoAsho

As shit as Duke Nukem Forever is, I'm glad to see it doing well.  Hopefully this will encourage Gearbox to make another one, since they, at least, will do it right. 
 
That said, I agree with  Redbullet685, who doesn't already have Black Ops!?  I love the game and all, but damn that mofo has legs.

Once again, not only do those numbers not include digital sales, they don't include ANY sales outside the US! I really wish more stories would mention this. There are other places in the world that buy games.
Once again this is a US site so that additional info isn't needed. Can't believe the Xbox 360 sold over 500k consoles in the month of June. That is impressive!

Last I checked, Giantbomb had a significant international audience.

@sins_of_mosin: Sorry, can only people from the US view this site? Yeah, I didn't think so. They don't need to provide worldwide numbers, but it should be mentioned in the stories that these are only US numbers and not worldwide. A lot of people see the best selling game moving only 500,000 units and think it was a flop when in fact 500,000 in the US might translate to double or more worldwide. The US numbers alone don't accurately represent the health of the industry. My only suggestion is that such a thing be noted.

The Duke lost out to a Pig Cop? The world truly has gone to hell.

Edited by ninjalegend

I have to say I'm surprised Duke out sold Infamous 2, Shadows of the Damned, and Alice. A deeply flawed, mind numbingly stupid, misogynistic game beat out those 3  solid titles. I guess Gearbox knows their audience. Good for them, though. It still sucks to see a game fail, even one as not for me as Duke Nukem. Now if only Shadows and Alice sold better......... 

Posted by JarenFace

I was hoping Alice to at least nab the tenth spot, but a part of me believed that that was hoping for too much. Maybe it's because I loved the Carroll books/original Alice game growing up, but I really enjoyed Mcgee's latest release. Plus replaying its predecessor made me appreciate it even more (I was surprised at how unplayable AMA had become after finishing Madness Returns).   
 
I still need to pick up Shadows. With it still being $40 this week in Canada (or at least where I live) now might be a good time to.

Posted by Cogzwell

My favorite was Infamous 2

... People bought Duke Nukem more than infamous two? SHAME... omg SHAME!!!

Release the game on multiple platforms and it wouldn't be a shame.

Posted by Shaanyboi

For fuck's sake, GO BUY ALICE AND SHADOWS OF THE DAMNED!!  Two games that deserve to sell!  Not the pathetic sack of shit known as Duke Nukem...
Posted by TooWalrus

I'm sure somebody already already asked, but if Duke Nukem had a PC version, and LA Noire didn't, isn't possible that Duke sold enough digital copies to take the #1 spot? People love digital downloads, and the PC version of Duke WAS the version to get...

This doesn't count map pack sales, just good ol physical game disc sales.

But it increases sales of the game for people who sold their copy

Posted by Daroki

Wasn't Shadows of the Damned the game that Duke Nukem wishes it was? Yes, I'm eyeing it very closely, and it's not going to take too much of a price drop for me to add it to my collection.

All those poor, poor Duke Nukem Forever owners...

Posted by Bestostero

Number 2 is pretty good considering how awful it was.

Posted by xaLieNxGrEyx

I don't understand why people still buy 360's  
 
 
I don't mean this in a fanboy insulting way I'm actually really curious  
 
What are you playing?
Posted by Apollo87

I kinda feel bad about not buying Shadows of the Dammed, I mean I haven't bought any game lately either but still I'd like to see that game succeed. 
 
Also for people wondering  I DO NOT OWN BLOPS and have no plans to purchase it in the near future, if I were to buy a FPS it'd be KZ3.

Edited by ptys
Man anyone who doubts MW3 will go gangbusters aught to look at the figures for Black Ops 9mths after release. Who are the people buying this game?!
Posted by Slaker117

@xaLieNxGrEyx: There are definitely games to play on the 360, but it does seem a bit weird to be selling half a million units this late in the life cycle when it isn't attached to a major release. Who's jumping in now?

Posted by GorillaMoPena

Now if you switch Duke Nukem and Cole Phelps things get weird when Duke starts saying "Evidence is for pussies"
