Mortal Kombat games

Mortal Kombat is a popular fighting video game franchise that was first released in 1992. The series is known for its fast-paced and brutal fighting action, as well as its use of finishing moves known as "Fatalities". The franchise has evolved over the years, but it has always remained true to its roots as a one-on-one fighting game.

The games take place in the fictional realm of Outworld, where a tournament known as Mortal Kombat is held to determine the fate of the universe. Players control various characters, each with their own unique set of moves and special abilities, as they battle against other characters in the tournament.

The franchise has become a cultural phenomenon, with a large following of fans and numerous adaptations into other media, such as films, comic books, and television shows. The games have also been the subject of controversy due to their graphic violence and depiction of gore, which has led to the creation of the ESRB rating system for video games.

Despite this, Mortal Kombat remains one of the most successful and influential fighting game franchises in history, and it continues to be a popular and enduring part of pop culture.
