Hello old games lovers,
I’ve never been a beat-’em-up/brawler gamer, but I can recognize when a game is so good that even if is not my genre I feel the urge to play it. One of this games is Mortal Kombat that celebrate today its 25th anniversary, having been released on October 8th, 1992.
This game gained its huge popularity not only for being a really good game with amazing graphics that features digitalized real actors but even (especially) for its ultra violence. Mortal Kombat fatalities became synomys with video game violence and back then they vere the most crude depictions of death ever appeared an a videogame. For this reason it was censored and somewhere banned and this is another reasons that increased its popularity.
