I think it would vary a lot, family to family, location to location. But one thing is sure: people trying to disassociate from our culture in an intentional way would probably avoid buying games like this one:
This is not a review. I'm only able to tolerate playing Duke Nukem Forever for about an hour at a time, and then I have to take a shower to wash away the stench of the thing and maybe go to my Quiet Place and turn out the lights and listen to soothing music. Or perhaps play a little Portal 2 to remind me that games don't have to be this grotesquely awful, and that there is goodness and decency left in the world of PC gaming.Read the rest of Thomas McDonald's excruciatingly well-written anti-review here.
It's not that the game is vulgar, gross, sexist, crass, and stupid. It's certainly all those things, and deliberately so. It would be pointless to rail against the misogyny, omnipresent scatological references, juvenile sexuality, outrageous gore, or profanity. Those were always going to be signature elements in any Duke Nukem sequel. Complaining about them would be like going to Hooters "for the food" and complaining about the way the waitresses dress.
The only real point to be made about these elements is this: while the original Duke Nukem managed to be somewhat tasteless while still being a decent game, Duke Nukem Forever is grindingly, insultingly, nihilistically tasteless while simultaneously being one of the worst shooters I've played since Corridor 7. What was a send-up of 1980s action stereotypes in the original is now just self-referential, tired, and joyless. [...]
If this game was a person, he would be a paunchy middle-aged man with a bad combover and a silk shirt open to the waist to reveal the cornicello tangled in his matted, graying chest hair. It is so desperate to be Super-Alpha-Male-Plus-With-Extra-Testosterone-On-Top that it winds up merely sad and sickening.
And speaking of Hooter's, people opting for the Benedict Option life would probably not be stupid enough to try to schedule a Catholic fundraiser there.
I'm all for trying to reform the culture. But we're not going to reform it by going along with its worst elements as unreflective consumers mindlessly absorbing and imbibing them. Recognizing that we live in a cultural wasteland, and learning to say "no" to its allures, demands, and glittering follies is the first step for anyone who wants to live in, but not of, the world.
