Scorpion is the coolest fighting game character
>>
>>9435402
Yoshimitsu is cooler

Scorpion is the edgy faggot that all the tryhard kids liked.
Real adults played Kano or Cage.
Reptile is the better colorswap ninja anyway.
>>
>>9435437
no one likes kano

Cage was great until they made him a cuck in the new games.
>>
>>9435437
Kano is super edgy.
>>
>>9435402
Literally cucked by Sub Zero. The gayest character in fighting game history.

The coolest fighting character is Eddy Gordo, the biggest Chad of all time

Nah, youre just a sensitive faggot so you think everything is edgy.
>>
>>9435634
You seem overly sensitive about this gay edgy game
>>
>>9435634
Spoken like a true edgy kid.
>>
>>9435440
Literally true. Kano and Sonya were left out of MKII because the MK1 machines kept reporting them to be the least used characters. Which is funny because Sonya is broken in MK1.
>>
>>9435757
i mean, i get those stats had to be used somehow, but do you have some proof of that?

There are few interviews with Ed Boon and John Tobias that go into it. The machines kept track of the statistics and since there were memory limitations they decided to leave out the least used characters.

I used to main whatshisface. The guy with the goggles and robotic look and shit. Kinda looked like he had dreadlocks or something, idfk. Don't remember the name. It's been 30 fucking years.
>>
>>9435557
>>9435743
I liked it for the multitude of characters and for all the cool different fatalities. I especially thought the animalities looked cool. It's something zoomers probably can't appreciate, since cheat codes aren't a thing anymore and everything can be seen on YouTube now, so there's no surprise or cool looking graphics. I was actually disturbed by the graphics and sound (I was no older than 4 when I started playing MK2 on Genesis with my brother), so I mean that I wasn't enjoying the series because of its "maturity."
>>
>>9436008
Apparently you're a try hard now, well at least that's what the dudes in dresses say.
>>
>>9436017
Like the dude in a dress who thinks one character is too edgy while others in the same game are not? Yeah.

That's not that hard to do in Mortal Kombat. It's the Dragon Ball Z of video games.

>>

Based, I would always pick him in the Shaolin Monks game.
>>
>>9435445
Probably Ed Boon never got over Dan Pesina suing them and claiming credit for the game's creation.
>>
>>9435402
Nah, he was pushed down everyone's throats because Boon liked him the best. Everyone liked Sub-Zero the most. That's why Subby got his own game and had the most storylines in MK3.
>>
>>9436642
Same, bruh. I loved the brotherly dynamic between them.
>>
>>9436661
Makes sense, ive heard he is kind of a jerk.
>>
>>9436680
Scorpion is cooler, spirit of vengeance is cooler than a mere assassin, or a mere ice brother
>>
>>9436858
To be fair, those actors were probably paid peanuts and watched the game rake in millions. I'd probably try to squeeze out a piece of the pie, too.
>>
>>9435402
Roman Reigns of Mortal Kombat. Only pushed because Boon McMahon is gay for him so he gives Scorpion all the bug angles and makes him the hero over the actual top babyface Liu Kang and dimes machine Sub-Zero. Also hates that Reptile is also dimes and jobs him out, depushes him, and keeps putting him in awful dinosaur lizardman gimmicks instead of his human disguise one.

As much as I love tekken 5, they really kicked off the downward trend of yoshimitsu becoming a clusterfuck of visual design, but I think 6 is definitely the worst of his designs. Tag 2 is alright, but it doesn't jump out the same way 3 does, there is a reason that's the design they went with in X tekken
>>
>>9435440
I've loved Kano ever since I was a teenager, he is just such a prick. But as a kid I always just liked the ninjas and the robots, trilogy was the first MK game I ever owned

It was the first one I ever played, and it has left a huge impression on me, it has so much more character than the prior 2 games, for lack of a better word it just feels so much cooler. I think TT2 is the best overall package, Tekken 5 is number one in my heart, but 3 is definitely the most important game in the franchise IMO
>>
>>9437297
>He actually went out of his way to edit the screenshot
Lol. Lmao even.
>>
>>9437325
Not retro, but I think Tekken 7, as an evolution of Tekken 5 formula, kind of made Tekken 5 and Tekken 6 obsolete.
Tekken 3 is different enough to be great on its own and I really like how good it runs on a weak ps1 hardware.
>>
>>9437352
I haven't really gotten into tekken 7, I don't like any of the new characters or the story or really the aesthetic, Tekken 6 is still fascinating to me as the one I have played the least back in the day and have no good way to do so now. I noticed that they did add alot of the missing characters though, which is neat I suppose

>>
>>9437406
I do kind of like that both costumes in T4 are like updated versions of old costumes, the beetle one is like his 2P costume in 2 and 3 and his alternate is like his costume in the original game. Still not the biggest fan of the beetle one though, I guess to me it doesn't really feel like Yoshimitsu but that's more of a preference. Tekken 4 was full of weird designs though, some of them I like, others not so much
>>
>>9437352
Tekken 7 made nothing obsolete, 5 still stands on it's own with a better narrative and overall character stories while 6 has the Campaign
>>
>>9437321
>most iconic look for everyone
Julia's is the jeans/glasses P2 outfit from T4 though. Anna's is the qipao from T5. Lei's costumes have never really changed since T2. Xiaoyu's is her T5:DR outfit since all of her primaries now are based on it down and it shifted her primary color from red/pink to orange; it's even her SFxT outfit.

Since when do people care about storylines in Tekken? It is not some NetherRealm Studios le epic crap.
>>
>>9437442
The day Tekken begun, you don't know characters and storylines are homages to the whole media of the 60-80's, for Mortal Kombat It was also the whole 80's ninja boom
People were aware of Tekken and Pre-Netherealm Mortal Kombat stories because they could explain the missing/dead charactere
>>
I remember thinking that Tekken (and 3D fighters in general) looked lame with VF and T1. The jump in graphics between those games and T2/VF2 in only a year is nuts. That said, T2's characters looked cooler and I had more fun with it than VF.

I like how they optimized the game around ps1 limitations by limiting the usage of gouraud shading to characters skin and skinny clothes while unshaded polygons were used for loose clothes (and mishimas necks).
Julia p2 costime pants have both and its genius.

It always struck me as odd they replaced Michelle with Julia. At least Forest Law only got one outing before they went back to his Dad instead.

They've pretty much tried to scrub Daniel Pesina's image off anything MK-related since the third game and never acknowledge his existence in official documentaries and such. Pic related is the 30th anniversary Arcade 1UP cabinet for Mortal Kombat. Guess what's missing from the side art.
>>
Scorpion became the mascot/face of Mortal Kombat but initially it was supposed to be Kung Lao, he officially won the first 4 tournaments, they kept pushing him as the Ryu of the franchise but it never stuck.
They did try to make Sub-Zero into a more important characer and even gave him his own game to try to make it happen but even then it didn't really happen.
Scorpion was seen as an expendable character which is why he was not even in MK3. It wasn't until the fifth game where they realized Scorpion was their go to character, they killed Kung Lao,
and made sure Scorpion was in every game along with Sub Zero. But even then Sub Zero wasn't in Tournament Edition, the only character that made it to both GBA games was Scorpion (and quanchi/shang tsung since they're the final boss)
