I didn't see an MK thread so I thought I'd make one. MK was the franchise that introduced me to fighting games. Every since then, I've been playing it along with other fighting games. I WILL say from MK5-MK8, even though I liked them & played them, they were off compared to all of the others (MK1-MK4, MK9). But I'm a die-hard MK fan just like I am DOA.

The characters (mains) that I use throughout the franchise changed around overtime. I went from Sub-Zero (MK1-MK4), to Scorpion (MK5-MK7) to Kitana (MK8 & 9). I have a variety of characters that I enjoy. As I already mentioned Sub-Zero & Kitana. Then I have Mileena, Jade, Scorpion, Reptile, Noob-Saibot, Ermac, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Rain, & then Smoke. So I'm bound to have a solid character out of the cast as you can tell lol. Though I would like to have Kitana as a main again for the next MK to hit the shelf. How I decide on the main is just I look at who's faster & does hella damage & it happened to be her.. But anyways..

HERE IS THE OFFICIAL TRAILER & FOOTAGE TO MKX (MK10)!

To see the main 2 characters that I would play in each MK series & the rest of the game franchises and/or list all of your mains in each fighting game franchise here's the link:

I love MK9, but I was pissed at how some characters were nerfed. Kitana ended up being my main competitively. Causally I mained Scorpion, Sub-Zero, AND Kitana, but competitively, Kitana was the best character out of the bunch. I also play Mileena (Sub-Main), Jade (which I was very pissed about her after nerf), Liu Kang, & Kung Lao. Reptile & Smoke are also good.

I mained Sub-Zero casually played a lot. Scorpion, Liu Kang, Ez-mac, Sektor, Kano, Stryker, Noob, Smoke, Kitana, Johnny Cage, with very little Quan Chi, Sindel, and Jax.

I thought at first the Smoke bomb otg getting fixed fucked up Smoke. Once I saw that Tony-T combo vid boy was I wrong 100%+ combos all up in that vid.

I just hope when MK10 drops, it's better balanced. & Kitana or Mileena's in it. I done got attached to them being my mains since all of the others didn't turn out the way I thought they would.

DR2K it's really to early to say if it's well-balanced but the game is dope as fuck though. Right now, I don't see nothing wrong, but again, it's still too early.

One thing I like about Mortal Kombat is that there's not one single female character I'm not compatible with, going by my rules of age preference. 99% of the females throughout the series are ageless (which I make exceptions for), and Sonya Blade - the only human - fits my age range perfectly.

It's also pretty awesome that a 90s vintage pornstar is actually a character in the series... albeit her bust size is nowhere near as big as the actual Sareena Lee's... but it's just a minor nitpick.

Nice, an MK thread :D Probably the first fighting game i ever played was MK1. Since then ive played MK2, 3, 4, Deception, and MK9. And although MK9 is by far my favorite, i really wish they gave the game more balancing patches/bug fixes. I main Sheeva so nuff said :/ Hopefully MK10 gets more polishing.

I like him, but I'm just not into slower characters. He used to be fast. This is somewhat my issue with Sub-Zero too, even though he's not entirely slow. I felt like from UMK3/MKT, his teleport grab should've ground bounced for a juggle rather than just slam people. I like that some people utilize his tools though.

I've played MK, MK2, UMK3, and MK9. In MK9 I mained Freddy Krueger and Kitana, with some Skarlet on the side. I didn't get to play the game for very long unfortunately, due to the online being unplayable and my offline crowd abandoning the game for unknown reasons after only a few months. I loved the game though and it was the fighter that made me want to start playing with a more competitive mindset.

I'll definitely pick up MK10 whenever that comes out, but for now we have Injustice.

Speaking of Skarlet, she could really use a Remilia DLC skin. The Touhou character fits in the game perfectly, bloodstained dress and all.

If anything, that would help the game sell well in Japan, lol.

I played MK trilogy for the 64. My friends and I had no idea how to play back then so we turned on some option called "Kombos" which basically made it so characters would do a automatic combo by just pressing a button. It was hilarious. I never played MK9 but I like Smoke and Reptile. Smoke I like his hit and run tactics and from reptile i like his dash and projectile. Hopefully in MK 10 they play somewhat similar to their MK9 incarnations.

It wasn't just "her" that took a fall. You can't really seem to get this flowing into people's minds. Even though it's been talked about a lot. You had Mileena who was once one of the top 10 characters of the game. Sub-Zero, Liu Kang, Kitana, & a few others that got nerfed. Kitana is still a high tier character in the game, but she was higher up on the scale before. Just like the others I mentioned. Jade wasn't "the hottest" thing around in MK9 but she was better than what she is now.

Since Shadow posted that 1, I'll do 1 better! :D

I used to just make up my own kombos. The way I'd get used to whipping off bigger 1s was I would mash like Punch Punch Punch & then I thought of ending it with a kick lol... Then after that, I was able to branch them out.
