Nice try, but I like other games too, and your argument just collapsed on itself because Duke Nukem Forever is gaining momentum and is one of the biggest titles this year, sadly though, it also got nerfed by Gearbox.
Your obvious lack of knowledge regarding older games is astounding, most hardcore (proper) gamers still appreciate games despite their age due to what those games did for the industry, Wolf3D is remembered for showing the world that FPS existed and many still play it, Doom is remembered for showing the world that FPS was worth playing and Duke Nukem 3D is remembered for showing the world what could be done with the genre with levels of humor and unparalleled interactivity even to this day - the nudity also helped. If this was not the case you would not find butchered ports of these games still for sale on your beloved XBOX Live.
If the game was not worth anybodies time, can you explain why almost 15 years later, the community still exists and has updated the game to the point that it competes with so-called "Next Generation" games? No, because this is not the case, my point is infallible and you know it is, so your argument is completely worthless.
