Duke Nukem: One-Liner Origins
Duke Nukem has recently made a major resurgence after an extended absence from ass-kickery and global heroism. Duke Nukem Forever is the newest installment in his franchise of video games and to celebrate, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret: Duke steals his best one-liners from classic action movies. Maybe you already knew that, maybe you didn’t. Regardless, I have no negative opinion on Duke for doing so. He has granted me hundreds of hours of enjoyment since his original side-scrolling adventures on my PC and I respect the longevity of his career. I would, however, like to finally give credit where credit is due and pay homage to the films and sound quotes that originated some of Duke’s most memorable lines.
There are so many others out there, but I’ll leave it to you to explore the Duke Nukem Sound Quote collections to find more of your favorites. If you have some favorites of your own, post them to our facebook page or in the comments section below.
