I’m not sure if any of you are aware of the level of enthusiasm I have for Mortal Kombat X, the latest brutal brawler from NetherRealm. I got to play the game for the first time earlier this year ta Gamescom, and walked away rather impressed for somebody who favours Street Fighter’s mechanics and pace over Mortal Kombat. Like many of you, I also got to play it at this year’s rAge, which included the most recently revealed kombatant,  Quan-Chi. I’ve been watching Ed Boon’s Twitter like a crazed fan, waiting to see who’s coming next. By the looks of things, it may be Kenshi.

Mortal Kombat X is going to be featuring plenty of new faces when it arrives next year. But it’ll also have a few old favourites as well. And that includes your favourite hyper-albino sorceror supreme, Quan Chi. Check him out in action, with the latest trailer.

Some people were disappointed that the latest, PAX-centric build of the upcoming, terribly brutal fighting game from NetherRealms featured no new characters. That hasn’t stopped studio head and Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon from teasing who the next character would be.

22 years. 22 freakin’ years of blood, gore and someone getting their spine ripped out by an unlicensed ninja chiropractor. That’s how long Mortal Kombat has been around for, eating old 50 cent coins and eventually maturing into a massive tournament staple. That’s two decades of evolution, growth and carnage. And it all started with one game.

Fatalities are to Mortal Kombat what a fat child is to a chocolate company: Absolutely pitiful without it. Having been around for two decades now, Mortal Kombat has carved a bloody niche in the gaming industry with solid kombat that is bolstered by gruesome finishing moves. Not all Mortal Kombat fatalities have been brilliant however. In fact, some of them have been downright daffy. And these five are the worst of the lot.

Mortal Kombat X is pretty much a new slate for the revered and gruesome franchise. It’s got an emphasis on introducing new characters to the series, a stark contrast to Mortal Kombat 9’s roster that consisted entirely of old favourites. That doesn’t mean that you won’t see a few familiar faces in the sequel however. Well hit your jukebox and start looping some AC/DC, because a thunder god has returned.

Video games. Violence. Somewhere out there, a politician is experiencing a rush of blood to his primary brain as he puts those words together to form a single semi-coherent rant that will get him elected. But video game violence ain’t going anywhere! In fact, it’s getting even grislier than before, dipping into excess. Here’s a video of five games that we found exceptionally gory. So if you’re under 18 and don’t have an upchuck bucket with you, I’d recommend not watching the video. For reals.

2011’s Mortal Kombat is widely considered to be one of, if not the, best fighting game ever made for the current generation of consoles, PC and handheld devices. But that was three years ago. Now, it’s time for round 2 on a new generation of hardware. FIGHT!

Like everything else in life, any debates or arguments can always be settled with a sense of finality by hopping into an arena and fighting to the death. Mortal Kombat has given fans a digital alternative to actually having to spill blood. And it’s been pulling a Teasality on fans for a few months now as the build-up to E3 continues.

Oh yeah, moving up the list now! Again, our disclaimer - this isn't based on metrics, scores, or sales. Rather, these are 100 games and franchises that made us happy or intrigued. Also, we are a weird bunch and you may not agree with our taste. Sucks to be you.
