Mortal Kombat: The Fighting Game That Defined a Generation

The 90′s scene was all about furry hedgehogs and cute plumbers until Midway Games came and changed everything. Ed Boon and his friend John Tobias wanted to make a fighting game that was brutal and bloody. Originally, the game that eventually became ‘Mortal Kombat’ was supposed to be based on martial arts superstar Jean-Claude Van Damme. (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

The fatalities are always hard to do...anyone remember that code you had to use on the Sega Genesis on the first or second Mortal Kombat?
