A popular one-on-one fighting game developed in the USA first released on the arcade in the early 90's. One of the first games that featured digitized graphics and actors (now extinct form of graphics). Mortal Kombat was developed by Ed Boon and his partner John Tobias (later joined Ed). This game also featured excessive amounts of blood, gore, and violence. That scored serious controversy. When the game was going to be released on the home consoles, matters got worse. Feminists and liberals began to fight the game actively. Feminists blamed the game for violence towards women and liberals blamed the game for excessive violence being shown to children. A group called the Entertainment Software Ratings Board was then developed because of the violence. The founder, democrat senator Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut. Mortal Kombat was so popular, many sequels and spin offs were made. Distinctive characters include; Liu Kang (a shaolin monk with black hair who looks like Bruce Lee and practices martial arts), Sonya Blade (a military woman), Kano (a bald criminal with a cybernetic eye. He throws knives), Raiden (sometimes spelled Rayden, a thunder god), Johnny Cage (an actor who kicks and shoots green energy spheres from his arms), Scorpion (a yellow ninja who breathes fire and fires a spear from his hand), Sub-Zero (a blue warrior, who belongs to the Lin-Kuei with the ability to freeze his opponents), Shang-Tsung (a sorceror with the ability to morph into other characters), Goro (a four armed monster) and Reptile (a hidden Green warrior, one can fight him at the bottom of the pit. He mimics the moves of Scorpion and Sub-Zero. Later in the series, he gained his own moves), just to name a few.

Mortal Kombat is a tournament held once a generation in order to protect the realm of earth from merging with Outworld, the reason for the Mortal Kombat tournament is because the Elder Gods wanted to give the Earthrealm warriors a chance to defend their realm. Elite fighters from Earth, Outworld, the Netherealm, and the realm of Edenia take part in this tournament. The first ever Mortal Kombat winner was Kung Lao. Today the champion of Mortal Kombat is Liu Kang, but he has been recently been killed by the Deadly Alliance of Shang Tsung and Quan Chi. With Liu Kang dead and the Deception of Mortal Kombat coming soon, led by the Dragon King, who will save Earth from a full scaled assault from the Dragon King and his resurected army? Stay tuned Come Deception, October 2004.
