Thank you! I agree on all points. Tekken was always a big one for me. And I, having played all mortal kombats, can confidently say that I do like Mortal Kombat less and less with each itteration. Like I always said... tekken didn't have the best in terms of sounds, but it's gotten better and some of those sounds make me cringe... particularly the bonebreaks.

Character designs are great... and yes, I agree about Paul being a street punk!


Glad to see some discussion going here... even if only one other person is involved. And out of curiocity... do you still play? If so, what console? ----- Original Message ----- From: "Johnny Tai" <johnnyti...@shaw.ca>

I'd take tekken over Mk any day, mostly cause as far as storyline goes, tekken is better thoughtout and has a more interesting plot. Every character has their unique lifestyle and motives, and each one is well written and has clear purpose. MK on the other hand, well, a bunch of "ninjas" who are really not "ninjas" and a force from outworld that tries to take over Earth by winning/cheating the tourni...and from there it just gets lamer and lamer by each new plot...

Also Tekken has more likeable designs...android/cyborgs, martial artists of all types, street punks (I'm sorry, but no matter what they say, Paul Phoenix is still a street punk rofl), and heck, dinosaur? lol

As far as gameplay go, I never did get into the MK much, so can't make a fair comparison, but I can honestly say that for me, there is probably not many fighting games that can rival Tekken's style of play. Even though I prefer Soul Calibur over Tekken, that's just cause of my love of swords and what-you-have-it, and nothing really because of gameplay.
And even then, if we go by a point system, I'd still rank Tekken over SC.

Also, the tekken fighters are much more realistic than the MK ones- another point to Tekken in my book.

That said, I think MK probably has more playability value to some people just because it got several bonus things like animality and fatality moves- not to mention several versions of each.

So I saw a joke topic on gamefaqs about this... joke meaning it was someone trashing things about teken that were completely untrue. So here's some serious discussion. Which do you think is better and why? Here are my reasons laid out on the table. Quite simple, really.

Although Mortal Kombat is fun, it's the type of fun that lasts for a couple hours. The gameplay engine isn't that deep when you think about it. Sure characters have combos and special moves, but there's not too much to learn. You learn how to do combos and special moves and how to block. That's all you need to do to play MK. Tekken? It seems to me to be a whole different story. You have to learn combos as well, yes. But you also need to learn the moves you can do while you're crouching, while your character is standing up, positions, etc.

Other reasons... tekken has better presentation. The voice acting in tekken has always been great, and the one thing I take over mortal kombat? Characters in tekken say things that make sense. In japanese, chinese, korean or english, but they all make sense. MK fighters seem to yell nonsense words. Sonya's bicycle kick in MK vs dc universe for example. Take a listen... tekken doesn't have the best sounds for punching and kicking, but the cutseens are backed by great acting and great emotion. The music is also great, with a whole lot of diversity and different styles.

There are my reasons. People's opnnions? What does everyone like?
