    Ok, I personally dislike mortal kombat (note, dislike, not hate) before the flaming or stuff starts, I start this topic to know why is mortal kombat is so popular while I personally dislike it. Take UMK for an example,the characters are so stiff, attacking style looks fake and blood just spill like water. The character names sound so....hell-like? It bring about the death, Gothic feel.

    Well that's just my opinion, maybe someone can tell me what is so great about MK and also recommend me some MK games on other platforms so I can jump into the MK bandwagon.

    P.S. this is the game like messed up my memory card, causing me lose all my save data, that is why I am very pissed that I have actually lost my save data over a game which I don't even like -.-" and ya, I know that I should backup my game regularly, I have learned it the hard way.

    Dunno what it is about Mortal Kombat, but I don't like it much. I still play it from time to time with my friends, but its not the fighting game of my choice.

    I only "dislike" the game when I get beaten with multiple hit combos and I just watch the other person batter the hell out of me.

    Other than that, it's a good game.

    I never really liked MK. As you said, the fighting is too stiff and the controls aren't really intuitive. I've always preferred Tekken or Street Fighter myself. The only thing MK really has going for it is the gory fatalities, other than that it's really a below average fighter with a cult following.

    my exact sentiments. street fighter was such a superior fighter, around the same time - that it always blew me away how much people liked MK. the controls and gameplay were complete crap compared to SF. i just assumed everyone was being superficial.

    *makes the koolaid*

    I loved Street fighter 2, also loved the first 2 Tekken's (I don't remember the others off hand). I also loved mortal kombat.

    kids these days, this game is a classic! I dont expect new kids to jump on the band wagon but if you had a console in early ninteens, this game was HUGE and a great competitor for street fighter, there has been nothing like fatalities ever in a fighting game [except KI],
    great nostalgic factor, unique characters, PORTABLE !!

    Actually, one must fall (old dos game) had a likewise feature. Only without the blood and the gore as it was robots fighting.

    Edit: Apparently mortal kombat was first. Seems like my memory is going, must be my age. [​IMG]

    I suck at the game, but I still love it, I have no idea why, although I wasn't much of a fan of Street Fighter (don't get me wrong, it's a good game, but for some reason I just love Mortal Kombat).

    Probably because of that Techno Remix.

    Now that's a fighting game I'd love to see ported to the DS (besides Street Fighter of course).

    Well the controls just need a little bit to get used to nowadays, since mosts games follow street fighter command styles with qtr circle forward/back, half circle forward/back, hold back 2s forward etc etc. MK is just a bit different. Also dont look at the attacks as varying degrees of strength (street fighter again) or even left/right fist/leg. MK uses low/high punch/kick.

    It's not really a cult following. All the cool kids back in the days played MK [​IMG]
