| I'm more of a Street Fighter type brother but MK 1 gets my cult classic vote.|
The conversion was poor, but at least Sega kept the blood in it.
I know that's not enough to neglect it flaws (Sub-Zero is just a blue Scorpion), but at that time we wanted more of that reddish goo.
The magic word "Dullard" with me..
The whole theme was obscure, maybe that's what kept us playing... Even though a 3-buttoned joypad sucked. But it was nice.
On the G/MD, pt.2 & 3 aren't really much compared with the rival SNES versions.
I think Midway just became too greedy with the MK franchise. The Animalities, Babalities & Friendships were nice but they got carried away with it. (Remember the rumors about Animalities?)
Don't even get me started about Mortal Kombat 4!!
And now I'm reading they're busy with 5. Ed Boon give it up already....
