The first Mortal Kombat was one of the best games ever. I still remember asking my aunt to ask her boyfriend to buy it for his Sega. And when I came over to babysit her kids the next weekend, there it was, ready to be played like there was no tomorrow. I had every fatality memorized within a week.
If you want to see all of those fatalities recreated on paper and in stop-motion form, watch the video below created by animator/filmmaker Eric Power. This is great. I love that he used the original audio from the game too.
