Ken McKown writes: Mortal Kombat is one of those series that make me feel my age. I remember being obsessed with the original in the arcade, which is now a cool 23 years ago. The series has a storied past including being one of the driving titles behind the creation of the ESRB. Most importantly,, the quality has always been there. When the team at NetherRealm rebooted the franchise with 2011’s Mortal Kombat, it reinvigorated my love for the series. Mortal Kombat X is the first step in a new era, as well as being the first game built for the new consoles. The results are nothing short of extraordinary.
