I always assumed that tournaments in fighting games are bracketed, but the characters you fight against are simply the winners of a previous bracket. The losers aren't much worth mentioning, after all.
Funny vid. Needs more cowbell, though, a la Scorpion.
That really is one of the funniest MK videos I have ever seen, and I have seen some pretty funny videos from places like newgrounds and tabmok99.mortalkombatonline.com and It makes perfect sense too! [Where are the DAMN brackets??!??]
It's not bad. I've seen better on those websites MKchampion mentioned though. It does paint an amusing picture of what I've always thought all along. I mean, in MK1 and 2 you literally fought everybody. It was hard ass shit. But in MK3 you chose brackets. Unless you wanted to fight everyone you didn't have to. Which is good b/c I never got past the 3rd person on "medium".
