Duke Nukem Forever

Ben Younkins sent me a link to a Jeremy Parish blog post over at 1UP, and this excerpt in particular perfectly sums up Duke Nukem Forever:

First announced in PC Gamer magazine back in 1997, Forever was shown before the original Half-Life launched, before the Dreamcast hit Japan, before either Game Boy Advance or Game Boy Color existed, before Microsoft's buyout of Bungie, and before Medal of Honor launched the whole damn World War II shooter genre. In the time since the game's revelation, empires have risen and fallen, or rather fallen and risen: Nintendo has gone from being the industry's top dog to a moot has-been to top dog again.

Here's another slice. In 1997, Intel released the Pentium II CPU.
