Mortal Kombat

Brad: Godawful digitized graphics, distorted sound, clumsy control, palette-swapped characters, simplistic gameplay that hearkens back to fighting games from the Commodore 64 days, and an AI that can be defeated simply by doing jump kicks over and over.  The only thing offensive about Mortal Kombat’s gore and fatalities is the dubious way in which the designers relied on them to cover up the game’s significant shortcomings.  Yes, your mom hates Mortal Kombat.  But so should you.

“Whoa! Did I just rip that guy’s head off?”

“…Um, maybe?”

Stryker: The Super Nintendo version of Mortal Kombat was censored, removing almost all of the game’s infamous blood and violence.  This wasn’t necessary for the Genesis version however, since the horrible digitized graphics made it impossible to make out what the hell was going on, anyway.
