I remember when it first came out and it was the talk of the school (middle school I believe). It was the first video game that had SOME blood in it! COOL!
My dad was working 3rd shift at the time, so we didn't see him often. One Saturday he surprised us with the Mortal Kombat game for Super Nintendo! We were jumping around, off the walls!
And now when new games like Call of Duty come out, I'm sure there are kids acting the same way we did for Mortal Kombat!!!
