I think I'm starting to see what posters on this board have been saying about the Fatalities being a bit too tasteless with the ultra violence.

Fatalities in this game aren't just ending your opponent but dehumanizing, humiliating, and desecrating whatever used to be your opponent. Quite disturbing.

In the earlier games a Fatality was a simple coup de grace. It really wasn't that much different from a signature finishing move from a pro wrestler. Flashy finish.

In MKXI it's like Stone Cold ends the match with a Stunner, then pulls out a baseball bat and beats off the opponent's head until it's a pulpy stump, then starts stomping the lifeless torso.

They don't know when to stop a fatality at this point. An early MKX interview has Ed Boon confirming that they're made by a group of people, one starts the idea and everyone makes a step. No actual creativity and more of just pushing the limits for no good reason. NRS is just there to make more and more shock value and nothing else anyway, MK11 has had a lot of people calling out how s***ty the fatalities are looking this time around.

The fatalities have gotten far too excessive, and that's fine, I guess, but I don't ever want to see them more than once. Plus, when you're just showing them off in character trailers, what's even the point? That's where brutalities come in: end a match a specific way to get a very quick, very classic MK-style end to a match. They are far more satisfying.

I just don't like how the fatalies and win screens take so long. After a couple of weeks, I'm doing to be ending every fight with an uppercut or just restarting the match before someone's energy runs out.

It's made for online play. You kick someone's ass and you force them to watch a fatality while you take a breif break to talk s***, get a sip of soda, and check your phone.

If they rage quit the fatality than it makes the victory all the sweeter.

Just gore porn at this point. Gone are the days of just killing your opponent quick and easy. Everything's super cinematic and fatal blows are pretty much fatalities at this point.
