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.
(Scorpion impales Liu Kang with spear)
Scorpion: GET OVER HERE!!!
(Upper cuts Liu Kang)
Liu Kang: WAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!
(Liu Kang flying kicks Scorpion, launching Scorpion backwards)
The best fighting game ever. Famous for it's blood, gore, and fatalities. The game that caused the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board).
Mortal Kombat is an awesome fighting game.
When you live in close accomadation with friends and you're having sex with a girl, before she is about to come, you shout "Mortal Kombat?" and your boys shout, "FINISH HER!!!"
through the walls.
Girl: Oh Baby, OH BABY!
Guy: Mortal Kombat!?
Room-Mates: FINISH HER!!
A phrase shouted when battle between two martial artists is about to take place.
"Chao and Chi, step into the ring"
Contestants prepare to battle.
Mortal, meaning can die, and Kombat, meaning -well- to fight.
Shao Kahn, Shang Stung, GOro, Kintaro, Quan Shi, to name a few well know 'bad guys' in an epic game that has given birth to a whole new genre of computer gaming! Without it i would curl up into a little ball and weep...
Example? You want an EXAMPLE??!! You can's HANDLE and example!!!!
The best fighting game, has Sub-Zero (my favorite), Scorpion, Liu Kang, Goro, Shao Kahn, and other fighters. Recommended!
Ha, liberists and feminist failed.
SFII: Yeah, I da best game eva.
UPS Guy: Package for arcade store?
PPL: NEW FRIGGN GAME!
Mortal Kombat 1: Sup mofos.
PPL: OMG FATALITYS!
SFII: Guys? come back!
(And so the SFII arcade was forgotten (or at least, not played), and MK1 is dominating the arcades.)
A series of fighting games where the characters could spill an unbelievable amount of blood without without having any realistic wounds. Hmm.... I wonder why....
For those mortal kombat creators, the game is really cool but what's with the movies, man? You should hire another director or something.
The art of first embarrassing, then finishing off the one you're fucking, after you first have already ejaculated.
Only works if done while using the two key phrases: "mortal kombat" and "finish them/him/her".
"As he was coming he yelled: MORTAL KOMBAT! At the top of his lungs, and through the wall I could hear his roommates yell back: Finish Her!"
