I never understood why people like Mortal Kombat, those games sucks so bad. The controls are awful and it looked so rigid comparing to Street Fighter...
uhh.. maybe because it's a fun game?
Seriously, some of us weren't so exclusively minded that we couldn't enjoy both Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. Each game had their merits.
Talking old-school console here, MK for Sega Genesis, Street Fighter for SNES:
+ Mortal Kombat had that rotoscoped art style which made each fighter's movement incredibly fluid when compared to the two or three frames that SF might use for a given attack.
+ Street Fighter had a deeper and more technical combat system.
Mortal Kombat also had the better movie (not that *that's* saying much but still). :p
