GamePro has recently put up a new article listing what they felt are the 52 Most Important Video Games of All Time. As stated in the brief introduction to the article, this list isn't a list of best or worst games in terms of quality, but in terms of their impact on the video game world. In this list, Midway's classic MK title Mortal Kombat II makes an appearance, representing the MK franchise at number 38! The GamePro staff have kind words for the game and its impact on the video game community. From the article:

Arguably the best Western fighting game to date, and certainly the title that defined Mortal Kombat as a brand, this game launched a thousand imitators en route to becoming one of the most famous-and infamous-video games ever made. Its technical and artistic mastery is only matched by its gushing gore.
