Fondest MK memory
10/21/2014 08:23 PM EST
I always wondered, what was everyone's fondest memory of the game? What made it one of your favorite or most favorite series of all time.

For me it was when i first moved to America from Ukraine when i was 4 years old ( 26 now) I got a sega for my birthday, and when i was in Toys R us i picked out MK, and i instantly fell in love with the game beating the tower over and over with Sub-Zero.

It wasn't until UMK3 came out and really got into the mythos of the game, and summer camp rolled around, and i met a bunch of kids who were very passionate about the game as well, and my best friend and me had an intense Sub-Zero vs Ermac rivalry playing the game, and watching both movies. The story really captivated me, and I really was hungry for every ounce of information i could get on Kuai Liang, and the character became my all time favorite character ever.

So whats your story guys?

I grew up with MK and played the originals when I was around 3 years old in the 90's. But it wasn't until I was 12 and got my hands on Mortal Kombat: Deception that I really got into it as a series and it quickly became one of my all time favorite video game series.

I'd say my fondest memory and what got me hooked was Deception's Konquest mode. Without a doubt. I fell in love with it, the story, the lore all the little details and hidden things they had in it... I probably put more hours into Deception than I have Skyrim... and that's saying something.

So Konquest for sure, other than that, unlocking Noob/Smoke's ending was mind blowing to me at the time.

I still play Deception to this day for the mini games and konquest mode.

Oddly enough, mine is similar to the user above me. I used to play it on a sega genesis when I was like 3 with my parents, and they realized how much I liked MK1,2 and 3 so they would buy me all the new MK games when they came out, and around the time of Deadly Alliance was when I started caring about the story a lot, I remember after that I dug up the Sega (and my PS1 for MK Trilogy) so I could rebeat the ladder with everybody and read their endings lol

Going to the local arcade in 92 when MK debuted. I was in my youth and people would be there for hours, having turn after turn attempting to discover the fatalities. When MK came to consoles, there was hype among folks over rumours of a super hidden factor. A person was saying they had played against someone called Reptile, much to everyone's disbelief.

When I was at my friends house playing MK4, and I was playing as Quan Chi against my friend who was playing as Sub-Zero, when I beat him, I put in a random button combination, and I managed to access Quan Chi's leg beat fatality. I shat a brick.

That is one of the reasons Quan Chi is my favorite character.

It's one of the moments when I realized just how bloody MK was, and how the game was not meant for a kid my age at the time.

There's also this one time where I flawlessly beat Kintaro as Scorpion, but that was when I was older and more skilled than I was in the past.

I was 3 and my dad would often let me play Deadly Alliance on the PS2 when he was bored of it and soon got sucked up in the game and its elements(using Quan Chi's slaps) and to this day i am still playing MK

Seeing my first Fatality. Which was Li Mei's from MKDA.

I was with a friend, and neither of us had any idea MK was ridiculously violent. We just thought it was another fighting game. Then Li Mei shoved her foot through the dude's chest and kicked his head clean off.

We just sat there stunned. Funnily enough that one is quite tame for MK's standards, we probably would've lost our minds if we'd seen Sub-Zero's Fatality from that game.

In the early 90 ́s,I was about 2 or 3 years old when I was first exposed to MK.My dad had a sega genesis and seeing the pallet swap ninjas,special moves,blood,and fatalities just mind raped me....but it was awesome!Then around 4 years old,I began seeing the MK3 kabinets in arcades and stores but it scared me for some reason!I guess cuz MK 3 was hyper realistic looking.wow
WATAHHHHHHHHH!!!
