Fans of Mortal Kombat X, as well as fans of every other Mortal Kombat game in the history of the series, both know and love fatalities. It seems that with the release of each new game, the fatalities get even more grotesque, gory, and disgusting. Some of this is due to the improvements in graphics over the years. No matter how gross a fatality was, it just doesn’t seem anywhere near as threatening or shocking on a Super Nintendo as it would on even just a Playstation 1.
Now when we consider how far we’ve come with CGI and the people appearing at times almost as if they were live humans being taped, it is impressive to see how far the developers were willing to use their M rating to the fullest extent. In Mortal Kombat X, what makes the fatalities so disturbing is not only the gore and bloodshed, but also the elements of comedy and creativity that are added to each seen. It’s hard to know whether to laugh or vomit, which just makes things worse somehow.
That being said, what if people who never really played video games and grew up in a world where graphics barely existed were to see the fatalities of Mortal Kombat X? That’s right, what if we were to show this video game to elders? Wonder no more. Just watch the video below; it’s hillarious.
Some of them can’t even watch it. One of the gentleman says it’s too much for “youngsters.” Another quote, “No, no, no, you don’t eat the face.” Or “I never saw anything like that, I must really be old.” There’s no way you could have gotten through this whole video without laughing.
Tell us what you thought was the funniest reaction in the comments. And if you have parents, grandparents, or any other elder friends that you feel could watch these fatalities without incurring a medical condition, feel free to show them and report back to us with their reactions.
