MK game get less difficult as the games get newer.

I think that MK games arent as hard as they used to be, the ultimate level on MK4, was not even half the very easy level on MK3. That right there is living proof that the games are getting easier as they go along. The hardest game there was, was MK3, because not only was the pre- boss (Motaro) was impossible to beat, but all the characters to get to him were practicly impossible to beat! The only way you could possibly get to Motaro was to play two player, learn the special moves of one specific character, and re-peatedly use it on the computer ( while it was on very easy) and then you couldnt even beat Motaro with that! Whenever you did a special move on him, he would throw it right back at you. So if you wanted to beat him, you would have to be extra skilled, and be able to hit and run as fast as you could, with out being taken and thrown by motaro, taking away 1/3 of your life away from you in the process. In MK2 it wasnt as hard as MK3, because the characters, were easier, but Kintaro was also extremely hard. But MK1 wasnt even as hard as MK2, because it had sainly difficult characters in it, and the pr- boss Goro was not as hard as his Shokan brother Kintaro. So there i go, drifting off from my own point. yeah i guess i caught my-self in a little stumble, my subject was to talk about how the MK games get easier as they go on, and im typing how much harder they get. But those were the only series of games that got harder one after the other, after that they all got easier, like Ultimate MK 3 gets alot easier than MK three. And MK Trilogy gets alot easier than Ultimate Mk 3. And then came MK4 witch was realy easy for me, it wasnt much of a challenge (not that i didnt enjoy it). Then came MK Deadly Allience, witch you couldnt say was easier than MK 4, but it cant get much easier than MK4. But you can say it was alot easier than MK 1-trilogy. But there were games inbetween the game series, like MK analogy, and MK Sub-zero, whitch were of course harder than MK4, MKDA, and MKD. But i do have to admit that MKD is alot harder than MKDA. So that pretty much ruins my idea of MK getting easier per game. I guess the difficulties, are random. But i dont expect MK to be that dark in the next gen MK witch will have an all new line up of MK characters, for MK , and it will grow into the dark series that MK is now. I also expect the games to start out pretty easy, about as easy as MK4. Then the next next gen game will be slightly harder. And then the third next gen MK gameto be really hard, just like the first three originals. Then the ones after that can be as random as they want. Since it is the area of a new generation of vidio games, i am expecting an MK story mode, with character movies, after beating the game once. I am also expecting secret characters that you can unlock, ect. Well that was my post i hope you enjoy, thank you, and reply nicely.grin

i think its a tragedy how easy kahn is to beat in MKA. its really disrespectful to his status in the MK universe.

i actually found MK3 too difficult... maybe part of MKs huge appeal is that anyone can pick it up... not many of my mates are into games but most'll give MK a go cos a complete beginner can just pick it up and give it a go. I'd hate to lose that.

But i do think MKA, both arcade and konquest, is too easy.

I hear you on the Shao Kahn thing Rayden. I mean, Shao Kahn has given us the most games (2, 3, Ultimate 3, Trilogy...) and was easily the koolest villain in the whole series and yet, they degrade him in Armageddon by giving him all the worst qualities in fighters. He jumps like a boss but is as weak as a regular character. Once I found out that he'd be playable in the Gamecube version of Deception I had an uneasy feeling that he wouldn't be done justice. Now, after seeing him in Armageddon, my fears have been realized. However, Kahn has gone on the occasional unbeatable streak which actually makes me happy because he, unlike Blaze, Rain, and the occasional Reiko, will get bored of winning eventually and stop cheating. Also, when he does win, it's more or less because he's better than you, not because he'll block everything you do.

Going back to you, Sharpeye, I know what you mean when you say the games are getting easier. I've noticed ever since MK4 seeing as how it was the only game I could beat whereas 3 through Trilogy kicked my ass and I never really got to play the first two. By now I've been able to beat Ultimate 3 and I can soundly say that it is the hardest game I've ever beaten, followed by MK1, followed by Deception, then Deadly Alliance, then Armageddon. However, I've never beaten MK2 and only got as far as Baraka who managed to cheat all the time by constantly shooting sparks at me so that I'd have to stay still and duck then jump and kick me before I could do anything or slashing me with that hack and slash move of his if I tried to jump at him. After a while I just got too frustrated to keep trying.

MK1's biggest challenge(s) : Goro and Shang Tsung (Can't decide which one I hate more).

UMK3's : Jade (What the crap is her problem what with her constant running combos and that horrid move of hers that makes her immune to projectiles?), Motarro, and, most importantly, SHAO KAHN (I didn't think I'd ever beat him. Easily the hardest, beatable last boss in any game).

Deception's : Noob-Smoke can be bad at times but mainly Onaga (If you have it set to one round, then he's no big deal. Two though, then you have a problem.).

Armageddon's: Rain can be an asshole when he wants to be, Onaga and Moloch can be a challenge though I don't remember to losing to them all that much, and Blaze can be a real jerk if he decides to be one.

well, first of all..use paragraphs, other wise people wont read your post much.

anyway, I think mk games dont get less difficult at all, in facts MK1 and MK2 have a huge diffrence in difficulty.
Moloch was a bitch in MkDA, he was pretty close to being the cheapest sub-boss and if you had not noticed, UMK3's difficulty is crazy compared to MK2's (if you dont know the AI's moves)

He's not trying to make fun of you or insult your post, he's giving you damn good advice. If you don't use paragraphs, proper spelling and punctuation, no one's going to want to put themselves through it. Even if it's amazing work, with some deep profound meaning, and good information, very few people will put up with you're lack of paragraphing and grammar.

I haven't played MKI-MK4 in several years, so I can't remember the difficulty. Shinnok, if I remember right, was very easy, but Goro was difficult. In MKDA, Moloch isn't too bad; in fact, he's easier than Quan Chi and Shang Tsung to me.

Deception and Armageddon are pretty easy too. Using Hotaru or Scorpion, I can kill everyone in Max up until Onaga (and Blaze in MKA), where it'll take me anywhere from one to five tries to beat him. It's really random. Onaga isn't much of a problem once you put the pressure on him and go on the offensive though. You can treat Blaze the same way in most aspects, except you have to work without the Kamidogu.

You should proof-read and spell check. It would help you out alot along with using things like paragraphs. d00d.
===========

Anyway, MK1-T porbably seemed more "dificult" because there was a higher pace-in-gameplay, and there was less to do with whatever character you had. along with that, there was a lot of subliminal distractions. flashy lights and so on that got regulated out....

(ever hear of a kids' parents suing because the kid had a siezure while playing a video game? Welp, that's an avenue to explore about the games "getting easier".)

Mk4 was the change over from 2D to 3D too. Just in case you didn't remember.

Hey as previously stated in a diff thread, i dont mind them getting easier. As much as i play games im not very good at most of them. Mk1-t were turnoffs to me because not only was i a wee lad at the time but because they were 2 friggin hard. The only time in umk3 that i beat someone was using scorp and spearing uppercut teleport punch and repeat. Call me what you will. I almost destroyed my xbox in a fir of rage because in mkd onaga was 2 friggin hard.
