Mortal Kombat has top tier lore, but a horrible story. They have these amazing characters, great concepts and interesting world, but the writers have absolutely no idea what to do with them.
Hence, why i loathe all these retcons they push now. For people who just came to the party, that one or two sentences mean nothing, but for people that stuck with MK Lore for years, those two sentences of retcon is an insult to the time invested into the franchise. I mean shit. Again. They could have avoided all of this, if they just decided to reboot the universe completely. Star from scratch. Retell the story. Fine. But nah. Gotta rewind time back and now let's pretend that because Raiden received visions from the future, every character's origins that happened before Raiden's visions were also changed. Gods I hate post 2010 game industry.
