Why there is so much hate towards the 3D era games?

I've noticed on this forum there is a nostalgia for the original Trilogy, but the 3d era was the worst thing to happen to the series and that's how MK lost its appeal.

I didn't think the 3d era was bad, it did try to expand the story with doing risky moves like killing off Liu Kang and the good guys don't win after Deadly Alliance. While the graphics look clunky now, it was the standard for fighting games to be in a 3d era for the 2000's. Deception to me was one of the bleaker Mortal Kombat games and the endings were cool. I'll admit, I thought Armageddon was rushed when playing it and not given time. Some new characters were pretty cool like Kenshi and Li Mei.

But a franchise cannot do the same thing over and over. We can't have Mortal Kombat 3 every 2-4 years.

Why do you posters think there's hate towards this era?

I believe MK Armageddon was really the only hated 3D era game due to....pretty much everything LOL. Although I did like the Kreate a Fighter feature.

WATAHHHHHHHHH!!!

I started my love affair for MK with MKDA, so i love the 3D era, and i wish people would stop bashing it.

Yes, some of the newer characters from that era suck, but many of them don't and it doesn't get the praise for that.

also, the combo system was truly immersive and amazing for what it was. It was possible to translate the skills learnt in one game to the next, unlike now where the characters have all-new movesets to learn.

There were some bad characters from that era no doubt, but there were plenty of good ones too. I thought the combo system was nice and Konquest for Deadly Alliance and Deception were fun. I liked how the fighters used different martial arts for styles.

I never really saw the hatred fans have for the 3D era until I was on this forum and gamefaqs.
