I wonder how many people truly think mortal kombat is somehow relevant to this day and age, specially when most games released after the snes era were kind of shit. I don't know, i just don't relate the name "Mortal Kombat" with the words "Good Quality".
People don't play Mortal Kombat for its innovative or ground-breaking game engine or plot, we play it to kill people in gruesome manners. It's the same shit as why people flock to Soul Calibur and Street Fighter. Violence that comes easy.
-Shrug- Then I suppose it's the bloated sense of nostalgia I get from it. It was an symbol of my Childhood memories once. I certainly don't hype it up for a new release, could really care less, but it's fun to go back to every so often.
everyone liked the creative concepts in the game if not the execution and since this is a series of watchable material and not a series of playable material it'll perfectly reasonable watching material. I legit enjoyed the Raiden episode partly because the guy was so without confidence that he had to say "now hear me out guys" at the beginning of the episode, and because i'm always fond of a good insane asylum backdrop. Oh also 7 of 9 is Sonya woa!!!!!!!!!!
I really enjoyed Scorpian and Sub-Zero too of course but that goes without saying. They is THE characters.
