You Know, Mortal Kombat X Might Be Too Disgusting To Play

After seeing the early trailers for the new Mortal Kombat, one emerges with sort of a queasy feeling. This game may be too ugly to play, if that's possible. (Mortal Kombat 10, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Eh, I'll live. Mortal Kombat's outlandishly gruesome gore is what gives it its charm.

I'm so hyped for this game. The more gore the better. Really inventive fatalities in the E3 demo.

Am I the only one who expects even more gore from MK series?

Maybe a more photo-realistic approach is needed to really hit the nail on the head! Unreal Engine is too un-realistic for me...

Are you kidding me?

I cant wait to play this game, If it survived the 90s It will definitely survive this time and age!

I hope they really thought outside the box in terms of fatalities on this one.

Violent games tend to dominate the market so there doesn't seem to be much MKX could do to make its gore "shocking" to the point of controversy. The game will be awesome either way.

Someone's been sheltered. I don't mind the violence since I've grown up with the series to be honest.

Maybe if they included more people being killed by kindness?

Bring back the babality

Can't be serious? These days people are desensitised to some pretty gruesome stuff, so I'd be very shocked if a video game would be to disgusting lol

Exactly this^^^^^ The staff gruesome stuff in the news will always dwarf video game violence.

Fantasy violence never disgusts me.

Game of Thrones is by far more gruesome than this could ever attempt to be. That show is praised the world over as far as I know.

Your psn name nikrel too?
nikrel  +   338d ago
yes
NiteX  +   338d ago
I would like a skull crush fatality.
nikrel  +   338d ago
My jaw dropped I was like wtf this isn't going to happen, sure enough! Pop goes the weasel!
mhunterjr  +   338d ago
I remember when folks were saying these same things about the original mortal kombat...

Back then, those graphics were considered 'too real' for the level of violence... The game was in the news daily...

The point is, I'm sure there will be people who can't stomach it, as was the case back in the 90's. But for most, it's just another video game... It's not a 'Faces of Death' video.

I'll admit that some of those X Rays and Fatalities are hella nasty. Way more gruesome than even MK9. However, to say that it's too much is subjective. If you're ok with it, then why not. If you don't like it, don't play it. That's simple enough right?
AgentSmithPS4  +   338d ago
Maybe they'll eventually run out of gory things and start getting news attention by adding nudity, like a chick that crushes your head with her boobs.
GhostTurtle  +   338d ago
Ben Dutka needs to grow a pair. Did this dude just begin gaming or what? Its Mortal f***ing Kombat!
TheTimeDoctor  +   338d ago
what is with all these articles? why are you people so soft?
SpinalRemains138  +   338d ago
Haha.

Never thought I'd see the day when a gamer thought a game was too gory.
nope111  +   338d ago
P*ssy
MNGamer-N  +   338d ago
The over the top gore and brutality is pure art in my eyes.

These people are acting like Mortal Kombat is a new IP...
NiteX  +   338d ago
If it's not for you that's fine. But it wouldn't be a Mortal Kombat game without it. I just hope they have some creative fatalities and not the same old rip out the heart or decapitation deal. I miss the MK3 full body explosions, but then again it was way over used in MK3.
Stoppokingme  +   338d ago
I remember playing the arcade version in the early 90's and I was grossed out.

Five dollars later and I was hooked. The gore is just a bonus to what is one of the best fighting games around. I can still remember one of shang tsungs combos from deadly alliance -X,X,X,L,Y,L. Oh the bloody memories.
xx4xx  +   338d ago
Go play Mario Kart. I'll play MKX.
the general n4g response to this article is really immature
ShadowKingx  +   338d ago
does not matter, soon we will see a article of a parent complaining about too much gore in MK X anyway, instead of checking the ESRB.
EverydayGuy  +   338d ago
Still think the game is pretty tame, after watching countless videos of real life mutilation and pics.
Allsystemgamer  +   338d ago
I agree mk is so over the top and unrealistically gory any way. People are just getting too soft these days
Tzuno  +   338d ago
good, does the title rings a bell? it is mortal kombat and it should be mortal duh...

Another dumb MKX article? Last night it was, "MKX is too violent."
Twiggy  +   338d ago
Mortal Kombat's gore too much? grow a set, it's a video-game.
ni99awha7  +   338d ago
Stop being a pussy.
VTKC  +   338d ago
films are more violent than this. SAW movies for example. Or Final Destination.
MK is known for its violence. Its what is Mortal Kombat. They are upholding what MK is. I would be very worried if it wasn't violent. Just look at MK vs DC.
Clearly the author of the article is not a fan of MK.
