South Park Creators are Big Duke Nukem Fans

The just-out January issue of PC Gamer has a story about the making of Acclaim's coming South Park game for the PC. In the article, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the show's creators, are interviewed and talk about their love for video and PC games. They talk a lot about Duke Nukem 3D. Here what they say about the 3D Realms super hit:

"When we started South Park and were doing the pilot show ["Spirit of Christmas"], we were a PC-based operation, so we had this little tiny office with six PCs in it all networked together -- with Duke Nukem, of course. We'd always work until about five in the afternoon, then we'd play networked Duke until two in the morning."

"One of these days, we're going to learn as a country -- Japan's already figured this out -- that violence in video games and TV does not create murderers and rapist. People like me [Trey] get rich when they come out with a game like Duke Nukem -- people at the time were like 'Whoa! Did you hear what [Duke] said? There are strippers there, pulling their shirts off!' Everyone wants it because it's pushing some sort of envelope, and it's exactly the same with South Park."
