Mortal Kombat games have a long history, as we’ve seen them running on numerous platforms, from consoles to mobile phones. The first installment of the series was released three decades ago, in 1992.

Mortal Kombat allows the player to take control of so many interesting and unique fighters, each one having his own techniques. Thanks to  GameX.gg, we have tier lists of Mortal Kombat characters for many of those retro consoles that we liked so much when we were little kids:
