Suck it Down!

Daikatana, a legendary first-person perspective shooter by the one and only John Romero, famous for its borderline-insane difficulty level and featuring many fresh ideas, is available on GOG.com, for only $5.99.

"Suck it Down!". No, we did not invent that tagline. This was one of the original slogans this game used when it first launched in the year 2000. It wasn't even the one that sprouted controversy--that would be "John Romero's about to make you his bitch", a one that the talented developer regretted ever since, as it practically ruined his good standing with the gamers' community. Whichever slogan we take into account, the message was clear: "this game is hard as nails". And so it was. It was dubbed unfair by some, and infuriating by others. However, those who managed to finish it walk tall and proud among the gamerfolk.

Daikatana is a FPS that brought many fresh ideas to the genre, even if it was a tad late to the party. It has a very retro-futuristic feel to it, mixing the 1990s and 2000s aesthetics. It features a slew of original maps, interesting mechanics, and fancy weaponry--including the titular Japanese long sword. Most importantly: its just as much rewarding, as it is punishing. Because, you know, "no pain--no gain".

Accept John Romero's challenge and prove everyone, including yourself, that you can beat the legendary Daikatana, available on GOG.com for only $5.99.
...yes, a Gorillan Dollars wouldn't surprise me.

Daikatana is an instabuy for this old fogey. Best surprise on GoG in a long time. Thank you <3

Negatus: "I remember when Kikoskia, a beloved Youtube let's player, was playing Daikatana."
Here's Kiko's play-through, simply because I find his sniffing adds a unique comic flavour to almost everything he says.

As DeadlyRamon pointed out, at the time just about everyone was jealous of John Romero for his god-like Id/Raven status, his legendary hair, and dating the only sexy woman in gaming.

It looks like an anagram. Alter positions slightly...

yes we are

I KNEW IT!!
Never played this. Graphics look a bit like Arx Fatalis, which I adore, but I admit that from screenshots alone I'd only play Arx Fatalis today because I know beforehand it's one of the best games ever. As for this one... for now I'm just glad it's here.

And just because Duke nukem stole things from other game, this one deserves to be treated as a turd.
Is this comparison of graphics for real? I'm not saying it's not, but it does look like bullshit. I just don't recall some of these elements in Duke Nukem, such as those red columns and the strange green flying creature. And it's not like it was easier copying and pasting bits of graphics of other games back in those days than making your own...

Yes.
such fond memories of this game in my youth. i loved every second i played of it, and frankly, i can't imagine why anyone would call it the worse game of all time. if you sit it next to quake 2, its not that much different. IMHO.
BTW John Romero apologized for "that ad"...

DRM_free_fan: BTW John Romero apologized for "that ad"...
Yes, but no one ever apologized for 'you can't leave without your buddy Superfly' and all the reloading I had to do when he got stuck on a pixel.:P ;)
I want to punch Superfly in the face sooooooooooo much

Because he is so annoying. Getting in the way, running up to enemies amd I have to wait for my 'budd'y Superfly to leave the level.

The guy is more useless then Ashley in RE4
