I wasn't interested in fighting games as a young teen, so it was exposure to the Super NES versions of Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat at a friend's house along with the Electronic Gaming Monthly and GamePro features on the larger than life characters that finally sparked my interest in the genre. I was terrible at playing them in the beginning, but when it came to Mortal Kombat, I finally found my rhythm after some practice. One thing I could never do, however, was defeat Goro. Sure, I'd worked up enough minor skill with Sub-Zero to make it to the infamous match against the four-armed Shokan, but I could never beat him. That's why it's so cathartic in the recently released Mortal Kombat X that I finally took him down in the Mortal Kombat I segment of the Living Towers. Revel in my victory as finally have my revenge... and yes, it is a dish best served cold.
