Greatest Mortal Kombat Games


The Top Ten

1 Mortal Kombat

My childhood, so glad my dad showed me this game no matter how gory it is.

I think all of Mortal Kombat game is the best! - CatLeena14

Of course

The story is so sad and powerful.It is too hard to beat shao kahn but it is very enjoyable

2 Mortal Kombat Armageddon

That game is so good, that bring back so much good memory. - CatLeena14

Amazing Game, I love it so much, every fighter, cool death traps, flawless. I'd rather play this than MK9 or MKD.

Most amazing game I've ever played it also has endurance mode which is my favorite thing ever

To me Armageddon was the best one of all

3 Mortal Kombat X

Fastest game with the best combo system of all!

Best graphics, best violence, only if it had a larger roster

This game rocks!

It's a huge improvement in the series and is unbelievably varia table it should at least be at number one

4 Mortal Kombat: Deception

My favourite game of all time

Instead of being flashy and unnecessary, the Midway team took a step back and added an intricate story to this game, making it more complete than the rest of the series. - Wopwop

Has a great fighting engine, has great mini games, and has an amazing story mode. One of the best.

It is one of the best games. I

5 Mortal Kombat II

Mortal Kombat II. The fighting system was a lot more strategic and relied less on combos and more on timing.

The best of the arcade games

This game is the best game ever in my opinion. Mk 3 wasnt as good - Sabbath

I agree mk 2 was better than mk 3 but its to difficult even if I play on easy its still hard

6 Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks

The freedom of the game and all the cool easter eggs and secrets, and just the system of levelling up, the many different enemies that lead you to a boss fight in every realm, plus Co-Op! & there's versus mode separately!

The list should be damn higher then it is this is the best game MORTAL KOMBAT devaloper has created love The CO-OP and boss fights.shoutout to MIDWAY studios.

Shaolin Monks should be #3 because it is great! The level designs, Easter eggs, level interactions, fighting technique, hidden features and Koop mode made it unforgetable

Shalon monks is the best it has a 2 player story mode and it is free roming

7 Mortal Kombat Trilogy

Clearly the best one of all...

The best mortal kombat game ever it has it all

The only thing that is annyoing is the loading times

Wooohaa! What a Game. All Fighters, Best Mortal Kombat Ever!

8 Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3

Speed, combos, all the finishers, what else do you need?

Great combo system and fast game play

Best fight game ever, speed is all that matters

This is the best mortal kombat game ever

9 Mortal Kombat (1992)

Is one from the best games ever made

The reason Mortal Kombat has had so many sequels.

The beginning of a legendary series.

The one that started it all

10 Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance

The entry that saved the franchise from going the way of Street Fighter. It's doubtful that any of the subsequent games in the Mortal Kombat series would've ever come into existence if Deadly Alliance hadn't been the huge success that it was. The first chapter in the "Argus Trilogy", the introduced an expanded mythology, a colorful array of awesome new characters, absolutely gorgeous level designs, the introduction of the Krypt, and the best multitude of unlockables the series has ever had, even to this day. Sadly, tragically, the rarely gets the respect it deserves, characters like Hsu Hao have inexplicably become lighting rods of internet hate.(with no explanation whatsoever! ) Despite this, the importance of The Argus Trilogy and especially Deadly Alliance can never be erased. One of the most fun and innovative fighting games I've ever played, and arguably the most important entry in the series since Mortal Kombat 1, Deadly Alliance will always be my favorite Mortal Kombat game.

This game is simply put the most interesting Mortal Kombat ever made with my favorite bosses to fight. I would personally say this game is the best one besides 9.

This is the best Mortal Kombat game... No matter it was released 11 years ago (2002.). When I play this game it brings me back in good days of my childhood...

This was my first mortal kombat game and I have to say it is amazing I have to vote it, it might not be as amazing as MK9(great game by the way secound place for me), but I have so much memories from this game and I love it so much so this was my best mk game for me - Lee2cool


The Contenders

11 Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition

Best game ever! - CatLeena14

This should be number 1 - Sabbath

It's the komplete edition it's better than the regular version

It’s the coolest game it’s got the coolest fatality’s and it’s got rain and Kenshi the fatality’s in Armageddon are weird.

12 Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

Super best game ever! That was my first time I played Mortal Kombat game as a 3rd grade. - CatLeena14

The coolest game ever with the mightiest warriors in all of the realms and the most powerful heros in the universe

I get to live my childhood dream and kill the flash

It's the only mortal kombat game I ever played but I'm thinking of getting more for my Xbox 360

13 Mortal Kombat 4

Best game ever. Like Minecraft I guest. Maybe no, what I was talking about?

I had so much fun playing this as a kid. It was my first MK!

It's the first mortal kombat that I had played and it must be the 10th and it's best than mk vs universe

MK4 = my childhood

17 Mortal Kombat III

This game sucks

Really fun old Mk game

Mk 3 is better than mk 2

18 Mortal Kombat Gold

This game is awesome is better than mk4 even through it's the same thing but slightly better

This one is better than mk4 in my opinion

I think this is a highly underrated entry in the MK series. It is basically a suped up version of MK 4 with more characters, way more features, more secrets, more stages and more fatalities! How is it rated lower?

19 Mortal Kombat: Unchained

Mortal Kombat: Deception left us wanting, and this gives us the finish

A fun mortal kombat portable game
