Despite not playing a Mortal Kombat game since Trilogy on N64, I can't help but get a twinge of nostalgia when I hear about the game returning, in one form or another, to its roots with the upcoming Mortal Kombat for PS3 & 360.
Was just curious what everyone's favorite Mortal Kombat character was/is and if there's any the story behind it.
For myself, it's Kano
An odd choice, I suppose, but I remember back in...fourth grade, I think it was, I was attending a classmate's birthday. They were playing Mortal Kombat 1 on the computer. Though never playing the game before and competing against kids who actually had, I think I won about four matching in a row before being defeated. Kano was the first character I picked, and did so probably because of his eye, but the character wound up sticking from that point on.
(Imagine my disappointment when he didn't return as a playable character in MKII...but at least I got to see him, regardless if he was a prisoner to Shao Kahn--probably my most reviled MK character.)
He was charming in the movie...er, minus the part where's he's eating a chicken leg in Goro's lair. ...Just wish he hadn't been killed off so easily or in such an embarrassing manner by Sonya.
