Mortal Kombat Celebrates 20 YearsBy: Chris Gabbard - May 23, 2012
It was 20 years ago that the first Mortal Kombat came to the arcade. Remember arcades? To celebrate, we have collected some of the best memes and videos from around the interwebs. Included here are videos of all the fatalities from the first three games. I could watch this for hours.[via: DSOGaming]
Like a lot of people I’m sure, Mortal Kombat can have the effect of making me angry like no other video game can. Here’s a funny video about a guy getting really pissed while playing online.
Mortal Kombat was first released by Midway Games, with Acclaim Entertainment picking up the franchise for home console release. Midway went Bankrupt in 2009 and Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment bought the rights. They then released Mortal Kombat in 2011, which retells the events of the first three games in the franchise.
Where would we be without it? At the time people said that we would all become homicidal for being exposed to this level of violence. Instead, Mortal Kombat is a video game staple, lasting decades, and even generations.
One last thing: What does a church service in Helsinki and Mortal Kombat have in common?
answer: Finnish Hymn
