I used to pride myself on memorizing every ALITY in Mortal Kombat's 1, 2, and 3 ... even if I didn't do them like the friendships and babalities. Back in the days of the arcade, I was a brain fart's wet dream because you name the ALITY, I could rattle it off easy-peasy. That ended with MKT Trilogy with the inclusion of Brutalities. That when my brain said, "This is getting too complicated to remember".
Today, I still remember every fatality for MK1 and MK2 ... but I struggle remembering Stage/Pits, and gone are babalities and friendships. It gets worse with MK3 - I barely remember anything about it. Lucky to pull of a fatality unless I'm using Jax, Kano, or Smoke. Unlike this Penny Arcade comic, when FINISH HEEEEM appears, I end up just standing there like a stork on a battlement ... or a Radio Shack Employee ...... You've Got Questions? We've Got Blank Stares!
