Major League Gaming will be host to the second Mortal Kombat tournament of the year this weekend in Raleigh. Some of the best players in the country will be in attendance to compete for $7,000 on the MLG stage. While Mortal Kombat has received positive acclaim from various outlets, most consider Street Fighter, Tekken, and now Marvel vs Capcom as the pinnacle of fighting game titles.

MK9 is an excellent game, the best of the series imo.

I'm surprised there are people who still think MK shouldn't be in tournaments because it's is a noob-friendly game that anybody can pick up and play. Sure, you can probably button mash your way through most of the story mode, but if you're up against a competitive player who knows all the special moves and combos, you won't have a hope in hell of winning. A fair bit of strategy is involved in defeating an opponent, tbh.

i think pretty much all you said and paraphrased , except it not deserving to get tournaments .

Noob friendly or not , if a game got a public for a tournament it will gets it period .

I'm just not interested at all by MK , because i prefer my fighting games to be more complex , and/or with tons more of hidden depths to it .

Just a matter of personal taste and feeling , not some definitive bible of what should be in a good fighting game

I would say that Tekken is more noob friendly than MK...If you don't know combos in MK your boned, but Tekken to its credit has a combat system that flows even if you haven't memorised the combos - Great for cool looking fights, but I have seen a 9 year old best a 20 something player who's played tekken for years simply with some serious mashing
