List Rules Vote up the best games of the Mortal Kombat series

The best Mortal Kombat games are true fighting game masterpieces, full of blood and guts. But not all MK games deserve the title of "best," as some of them have been real duds. So which ones should you not waste your time playing? Gamers have voted for what they think are the best Mortal Kombat of all time.

If you think the coolest Mortal Kombat game isn't as high as it should be, then make sure to vote it up. This way, your Mortal Kombat arguments won't devolve into actual mortal combat. Created in the early nineties by Ed Boon, John Tobias, John Vogel and Dan Forden, the MK franchise now has ten games in the main franchise and several spin-off titles such as Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.

The original Mortal Kombat is considered one of the best games of all time and influenced the fighting game genre immensely. After it was released, other developers started to emulate the over-the-top violence and gore. In fact, it forced the video game industry to self-moderate with the creation of the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB).

So if you're wondering what are the greatest Mortal Kombat games of all time, then this list should answer your question. After all, the best Mortal Kombat games typically include the best fatalities.
