December tends to be one of those months chock full of holiday deals, and the Internet is more than happy to get in on the festivities. This is especially true when it comes to video games. Sure, these kinds of promotions are mostly just clever marketing ploys, but cheap games are cheap games, and free games are even better. GOG, an online purveyor of video games, is currently running a promotion where they're giving away copies of Duke Nukem 3D.

Now I'm sure some of you youngin's are quick to equate the name Fallout with Fallout 3 or Fallout: New Vegas. This is a bad thing to do. Stop it. Stop it right now.

If you've never played it before, you have no excuse to not play it. If you have, you have no excuse to not do it again.
