    Well, it all depends on the game to me. I wouldn't mind seeing Mortal Kombat have a couple of lulz in there. But not a game like Arkham.

    I think the thread is asking in general, what kind of games you like. Not how serious/funny you want a game to be.

    But regardless I agree with you Aldo lol.

    It's not meant to be taken serious.

    Mortal Kombat should stay serious as well.
    Sure, the friendships and babalities have become common place due to previous games, but in general NRS should keep the serious and brutal feel of MK9 for future MK games.

    I have no preference when it comes to comical or serious themes. It's all about the how the it is handled in the context of the game.

    Re: How Serious Do You Like Your Games?

    LOL I dunno if I'd actually consider Gears of War to be that serious, despite the 'gritty' tone of it. The 'high tech' soldier/marine guys have effin' CHAINSAWS attached to their rifles! CHAINSAWS! That's one of the silliest things ever. In an age where they could probably attach god damn lasers to their guns they go with chainsaws lmfao. It's a fun and awesome game.. Don't get me wrong. But serious? No. And I think that's what Cliff likes.

    Yup. I like friendships and babalities, but all future MK games need to be serious and brutal.

    I disagree. I disagree in that they don't need to be serious. They're perfectly fine being silly. Especially with characters like Johnny Cage or Rain who is a joke in and of himself. The whole idea of Mk is pretty silly to be honest. Brutally killing eachother for peace. Okay... Honestly though, I don't mind either way. I loved the dark semi-realism of MK:REBIRTH (Legacy was.. Okay. But I feel like the Kitana/Mileena section killed it.), but I also love the fantasy silliness of traditional MK. I don't care either way. But I'd prefer the traditional route. I just feel like most games are laughable when they try to be too 'serious' or 'brutal'

    I probably should have said, that I want MK to be a M-rated game.

    By serious, I don't mean that there can't be any comedy relief, but I don't want MK to go back to T-rating.

    Re: How Serious Do You Like Your Games?

    I like my games serious to an extent, like Mario needs to have humor in it to make it epic. Then theirs zelda that works a lot better if it's serious with minimal amounts of comedy. If it's a game like God of War or Mass Effect will usually work better if it has no comedy what so ever.

    Re: How Serious Do You Like Your Games?

    For me it depends on the game. Like for example I love wacky, crazy games like Saints Row and Bullet Storm. Then I love games like Gears of War where the game is serious, but it has it's humor at the sametime. There are also games like RE who annoys me when they try to be funny, but it just comes out cheesy and lame. I wish they would leave the cheesiness out of RE games. But I like serious games to like Elder Scrolls, Yakuza, or Heavy Rain. So it depends on the game itself.

    Video-games and movies are 2 totally different animals though.
    Dark-and-gritty in an MK universe would feel like SAW, which is exactly what MK: REBIRTH felt like.
    Had is not been for the black, doctor-gone-mad Baraka fighting against Johnny Cage, I would have thought it was a horror film.
    And even the way that they explained Baraka implanting himself with the blades is something straight up out of SAW, The Human Centipede or another like-minded horror film.

    MK films need a good balance between realism and magical \ mystical, in order to capture that same essence that was present in the games.
    Legacy was perfect in that aspect with the Sub-Zero \ Scorpion, Mileena \ Kitana and Raiden episodes.
    The ideal MK movie universe, IMO, would be a Lord Of The Rings type universe, but more violent.

    true. But spamming "JASON!!!" at the mall is pretty funny though.

    god of War was kinda funny. Being able to **** those 2 girls over and over again without having to take a break is pretty funny.
    Not to mention some of Kratos' lines are unintentionally funny when he screams a normal sentence.
