1. Duke Nukem (Duke Nukem)
Good 'ol Duke's a no-nonsense kind of guy. Though he blasted into the gaming scene in the early '90s, his current politically incorrect persona manifested in 1996's Duke Nukum 3D. Here, he wowed children with his muscular arms and bullet-strapped wife-beater, as well as filthy mouth that, much to the dismay of parents everywhere, taught kids dirty swears and how to smoke a cigar like a boss. Shortly after, the greatest worst role model games had ever had disappeared, seemingly Forever.
Getting reintroduced to The Duke was like meeting that old elementary school friend again post-college, only to find out that he's still super into poop jokes and getting blackout drunk every night; just like he was in elementary school. The Very Big D tried to woo gamers with blatant sexism and tasteless jokes, but his attempts seemed like they were born of a desperation that screamed "Hey, remember how funny this used to be? IT'S STILL FUNNY, RIGHT?" To make matters worse, he was still obsessed with quoting movies and had developed a super ego during his hiatus that could shield him from alien laser bullets. That's bad news.
