Arcade Mortal Kombat is Still Frustratingly Difficult
Mortal Kombat has to be one of the best video games of all time. Yesterday I posted about how I got a top score on Ms. Pac-Man. Also in that same arcade was a classic Mortal Kombat machine. I usually see Mortal Kombat 2 or 3, but I never see the first one. So I popped in a quarter and gave it a shot.
When I play this game on Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis, it’s a cake walk. Now take away the D-Pad and give you a couple buttons and a Joystick and hold on. Once I got to at least the 3rd or 4th fighter, my ass got handed to me.
If you didn’t know, these are how these games are programmed so that way you’ll keep poppin’ in quarters when you lose. It sucks, but that’s business for ya! It was pretty nostalgic to be standing the game that caused the video game industry to put in a ratings system.
Next time Mortal Kombat….next time….
