I’ve been thinking a lot about finishing moves recently and thought it would be fun to document all of the Mortal Kombat Fatalities (and the versions on home consoles), so welcome to a little experiment I’m calling “Finisher Friday”!
If you guys like it, I’d like to curate finishing moves from pretty much every game that has them – In the best video quality possible (and using original hardware, except for arcade versions).
So, for this maiden voyage, I thought I’d go back to where it all began; the original Mortal Kombat Fatalities. The original arcade classic was infamous for its gory, bloody content and I don’t think the creators were prepared for the outcry and impact that this humble arcade cabinet would have on both gaming and pop culture.
Enjoy all of these deadly finishing moves in 1440p resolution. If you’d like to see more of these types of videos, please do let me know as it would be great to do more of these. How about some for other series like Killer Instinct?
