Complex Says: Gaming took a huge turn when Sony stepped on the scene with the Playstation. Players gravitated towards the brash, anti-hero. 1996 brought us Duke Nukem 3D. Nukem existed before then, but in 1996 he changed his look and spurned copycats. Nukem’s plain clothes and sunglasses gave players the impression that this was just another day for Nukem and that he’ll do it in style.
