Playing these old school classics brings me back to a better time where bills didn’t exist and I actually had hope for my future. Nostalgia aside, the games I had a blast playing were the Duke Nukem ones—little did I know that the original games were side scrollers.  I thought the first in the Duke Nukem franchise was the 3D one. Stupidity aside, all the games listed were a blast to play. So, do yourself a favor—jump on Steam and buy this pack now! –Kenny Tadrzynski
