Next Generation, one of the great places to go for information on interactive entertainment, recently did an article on 100 of the top developers of video games in which Ed Boon was mentioned! Without ranking any one person above any other, they of course mention the Mortal Kombat series as the reason he was picked for the list. From the article:
Boon’s name is irrevocably tied to the Mortal Kombat franchise, and it seems he wouldn’t have it other way. He’s been with Midway since the series’ inception, and has seen it through every up and down, eventually successfully reinventing it for this generation of consoles in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. His games are perhaps the most successful western-designed fighting games there are, and with the recent Shaolin Monks, the upcoming Armageddon, and a confirmation that the series is ready to head into the next generation, it’s likely going to be that way for a while.

Our congratulations of course go to Ed Boon for this award, as well as thanks to MK Online forum/chat member for the heads-up on the news!
