I couldn't give two shits about trophies and achievements; as long as the game is good i will enjoy it.  
I don't see the point of being a trophy whore (no offence to any whores).

The theme is still one of the greatest ever. The game really isn't all that bad but some parts did piss me off.
I also liked the gun play. I think the vitriol against DNF has been uncalled for; there have been much worse games that got better reviews, but for some reason, DNF is hated upon with malice.

Maybe you shouldn't be playing games at all then?

I enjoyed it, and I too am not a Duke fanboy, though I dug Duke3D.
This is just an old-school shooter at heart, and yeah the graphics aren't flash (though they look good in parts), but like art, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
It really isn't that bad a game as most are making it out to be. DNF is better than MW2 IMHO. 
I went in to play it without listening to all the hate and vitriol, and I enjoyed it. And the extras when you finish it are pretty cool too, although playable versions of the previous Duke games would have been excellent. It deserves a 7/10. I'm not saying it doesn't have flaws, but really, there are much worse FPS out there.
Brink was absolute shite compared to DNF.

Still have Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 to go, as well as:
Yakuza 3
Sacred 2
Ratchet & Clank - A Crack in Time 
LA Noire
Demon's Souls...
and a load of PS2 games that I haven't even started yet.

I love reading all the backstory and history, legends, and mythology of the game worlds.  In games like Dragon Age it can get to the point where you skip some of them, but generally I like to acquaint myself with the game world's history.

I would stop gaming.
The very thought of this happening makes me sick.

I reckon it's a decent game, and I am not a Duke fanboy.
Yeah, the graphics are stuck in another era, but some environments and characters look pretty good, and the gameplay is fun. It is just an old school shooter at heart. I don't think it is as bad as most believe; I would give it a 7/10 if I was reviewing it.
But it's true, it would be worth waiting until it's cheaper.

I had the most fun gaming in a long time with JC2; it's hard to put the controller down once the disc is in, and the gameplay whoops asses.
Why can't more games be as fun and entertaining as this?

I'm playing the PS3 version, and the frame-rate is good, loading times aren't bad, and no screen tearing. 
I think it's an ok game; you can't compare it to COD and Battlefield. Slightly disappointing but not bad at all.
