Actually Mortal Kombat 1 and Tekken 1 came out at roughly the same time
period. I was still in high school, say 93 or 94, when MK came out.
Tekken came out perhaps a year or so later. I know this as both games
were largely talked about in school at lunch time when various gamers
chatted about the hot new releases. I was still interested enough in
mainstream games then to be interested in what was coming out, and what
to try next.

Man, and we ahven't even gotten into the whole thing about Kazuya's
background, how his father treated him- throwing him off a cliff when
he was young, and only the need for revenge and the devil in him kept
him alive, and how Jun and others got into the stories from different
angles... Yeah, that'd take a book to sum up.
And then there's the whole arc about Bryan Fury who just happens to be
on the top of my favorite chars list.
To clarify about the Ogre though. He fought in Tekken three mainly to
consume people... It's like he's nothing on his own, and only by
taking on others traits and energies can he be god-like.
For me, Ogre and True Ogre were nowhere as tough as Kazuya and Devil
in Tekken II rofl, that pair made me want to throw the control so many
Okay, so I see MK is taking a hard beating in this contest, but I
think we should also remember that MK came out like 10 years earlier
than Tekken, so obviously the standard back then were alot lower.
