Mediated Mortal Kombat: an Argument for Ultraviolent Fighting Games

 |  |  |  |  |  |  March 29, 2010


Why can’t fighters resolve their conflicts using more constructive means? Can’t they just all get along? How awesome would it be to see Reptile and Raiden baking instead of dismembering each others’ limbs?

…not that awesome. Because let’s face it, there’s no way to make expressing one’s emotions, taking a break and hugging it out compete with throwing a harpoon, freezing your opponent or jumping off screen only to come down hard and stomp fools flat.

Actually watching Scorpion hug it out is kinda awesome. Because he still harpoons the other dude. Nice.
