bus9ja2d saidIt made me laugh when that NRA guy mentioned Mortal Kombat. Get with the program bro! Nobody played that pile of Krap we got Kompletely sick of multicoloured "ninjas" and replacing cs with Ks for no reason years ago!
I'm perplexed as to why LaPierre cited MK. It shows just how out of touch both he and the NRA are. I suppose they're too busy spending the million$ they milk from members each year to keep up with modern pop culture.
Few play it today, but Mortal Kombat was one of the most successful arcade games in history, and its release on Genesis and Super Nintendo is widely cited as a primary catalyst behind the success of the home video game market. Content drives hardware acquisition, so when MK released for home consoles in '92, sales for both the game and hardware went through the roof.
While it's no longer favored by gamers, it is still alive (though barely), making it one of the longest living third-party video game properties in history.
