Injustice: Gods Among Us stories

Some of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe's Heroic Brutalities were so comically bad they were actually awesome

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe was an interesting experiment. What was meant to be an epic clash between two iconic franchises ended up being a 3D fighter with an identity crisis that tried to capture that bloody Mortal Kombat magic all while obeying a Teen rating and retaining the good name of several fan favorite super heroes.

It was an awkward meeting in the middle of both IPs, but while the game certainly wasn't all bad, it did have several Fatality-style finishers that were... far from great. As I think back, some of them were so comically bad and cheesy that they are actually really awesome and entertaining.

The worst boss NetherRealm Studios has ever made

There was something especially exciting about getting to the end of Street Fighter 2's arcade ladder and suddenly facing off against especially formidable characters who weren't available to you on the character select screen, and Mortal Kombat captured that excitement, perhaps even to a higher degree, when we first ran into the likes of Goro and Shang Tsung.

Gas Blast, unblockable bombs and ice balls — What are the best projectiles in NetherRealm Studios' history?

Throughout all of NetherRealm Studios' fighting games (Mortal Kombat 9, Injustice, Mortal Kombat X, Injustice 2 and Mortal Kombat 11), there's always been at least some emphasis on zoning.
