Mortal Kombat: 20 Horrifically Stomach-Churning Fatalities

WC - Mortal Kombat’s fatalities can be dividing factors among gamers; they are the fuel behind the series’ notoriety and arguably the most controversial element of the games, yet thanks to certain animations (we’re looking directly at you Sub-Zero, with your spine-ripping party trick of the nineties) the medium has become encumbered with the creation of the ESRB and its long running governance. Yes, the violent nature of the game was that shocking when it had its popularity spike in the arcades that an entire ratings board for video games was formed – it therefore comes as no surprise that Mortal Kombat was the first game to receive the accolade rating of ‘Mature’. (Culture, Mortal Kombat)
