good read makes me think about how the original MK1 and 2 was when it first came out I was about 13 me and my friends would sit in front of the tube watching these crazy fatalities.I think they just enforced esrb ratings with Mk1 but retailers didn't care at that time as much cause it was a new system they didnt really pay attention to it and just wanted your money games didnt sell as much as they do now..
The good ol days

With that said Im going all out for this release- tournament edition(ps3), kollectors guide, and Mk1 bluray
