I wanted your opinions on how much MK vs DC helped or harmed the fabled martial arts tournament.
Its a common thought that DC was the worst thing to happen to MK. But I feel as if it (as Boon said himself) created a bloodlust from fans. I don't think I'd think the fatalities would be as exciting to me if MK8 was a regular violent game. The excitement would still be relatively high because of the 2d gameplay, but I believe its even higher because of them also returning to the gore.
Do you think this game's effect on the Mortal Kombat name was intentional? Kind of like holding a garden hose to stop the flow, but then let it go for a fat ass blast.
If MK8 wasn't MKvsDC, then DC and WB wouldn't have gotten to work with the MK Team and got to see how talented they were. If that didn't happen then there is a good chance that the game we are getting next month could have never come to exist. A lot of good things came because of MKvsDC. Also don't forget they got to learn a lot of lessons with the platforms and engines while making that game, making MK9 become the solid game that is has become.
