I've loved MK since i was like 4-5 yrs old. My all time favorite kharacter is Johnny Cage. Others i like include Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Sonya, Raiden, Shao Kahn (who i consider to be one of the most epic bosses in video game history) & as well as many others, who would be too much to list here lol. But to be honest, i really like pretty much every MK kharacter introduced from MK1, 2, 3 & 4. Theres not really any kharacters i find cool from the later 3D MK games (with Kenshi being an exception). Hmm, i guess Shujinko wasn't too bad, but thats not really saying much. The later 3D games aint got anything on the klassics, but overall i'd say Deadly Alliance & Deception weren't too bad, especially when compared to Armageddon & MK vs DC.
The first Mortal Kombat movie is by far the greatest live action film ever made, period. Yes, it could of been better, but overall it was cool (especially when compared to other live action films). MK: Annihilation on the other hand was a HUGE dissapointment, thats all i'll say about that abomination. My favorite MK games are MK1, MK2, MK Trilogy, MK4, Shaolin Monks & ofcourse the latest & greatest installment to the series MK9. That is all i'll say... for now lol.
