Everyone's favorite fighting game series, Mortal Kombat, appeared on G4TechTV's program "Icons" on an episode that was all about fighting games. They did a surprisingly good job considering they had to fit the information into thirty minutes (minus commercials), covering a wide variety of topics such as: How fighting games started, how they tied into the arcade scene, how the fighters on the powerful consoles drove away arcade business, the emergence of 3D technology being used, violence in fighting games, how certain politicians reacted, the assembly of the IDSA/ESA and the rating systems, and online play. Many people from different sectors of the gaming industry gave comments on their own perspective, including four people from the Mortal Kombat team: Ed Boon, John Tobias, Steve Beran, and Tony Goskie.
