Yarr, we have Tekken, KOF and SS discussion threads..so it cant hurt to have a Mortal Kombat Series discussion thread i thought.. and before someone else starts it...GBK does it.I am a big fan of fighting games since 1992 ..first one i played was SF2, soon followed by MK on the SNES. While it is not my all time favourite series when it comes to playing it, MK was always something special for me. Maybe because i got a quite cool Movie back than..maybe it was the characterdesign or simply the realistic looking digi sprites, the violence, the music or the story. The series has it ups and downs...but probably more downs than any other big fighting game series. While tekken went on a straight route - every sequel had more characters, more moves, better graphics, gameplay tweaks - the MK series gameplay changed nearly from game to game...instead of having a stable roster, they excluded even fan favourites for some parts (Scorpion, Raiden in MK3 as example, Liu Kang in MK DA etc.) There are many many...too many mistakes done in the MK games..but after all..since the new Mortal kombat was announced and released it seems that the MK series has a good chance to be taken as a serious competition for Street Fighter and Tekken. Just everything what could be improved was improved, from the characterdesign to the gameplay.A web- series was and is in production re-telling the MK story in very different views, and chances are that we see a new MK movie, done by Warner Bros somewhen in the future. I wish the Mk developer team good luck and success with future Mortal Kombat games..since MK2011 seems to be a success, it looks like we will see more games of the series sooner or later. I myself wouldnt mind a new Mk game like Shaolin Monks..that was seriously the best game in the last 9 years.What are your opinions about the series now after Mortal Kombat 2011 ?
