    I'll play it just because it's a fighting game... Buying it on the other hand, probably not...

    MK was always more of a decent series rather than a good one. Sure it paved the way with blood and fatalities (am I spelling that right?), but the actual gameplay was really repetitive, the fighting was unbalanced, and the fun of playing MK games faded to boredom within an hour.

    Personally, I feel SC is a better series. Visually appealing, a balanced system (nothing quite like exchanging guard impacts fifteen times in a row against a friend...), and more things to do. Though the story mode also gets really repetitive, it isn't as bad as MK.

    Look, if you're talking about balance, strategy, depth, then talk VF. As the games stand, VF>Tekken>DOA>SC>MK. Personally, I prefer Tekken to all other fighting games, for lifespan, depth and enjoyment. VF is a better game, but I find it dry.

    As I said before, I'm gonna get MK, but really the game is for fans. It's not for people who are serious about fighting games.

    So how exactly are you basing each series of fighters exactly? I see that you've only mentioned games that for the most part are 3D fighters with the exception of the MK series. If you're just going to throw whole series out there with no real justification then I'll just mention a bunch of series like Street Fighter, Smash Bros., KoF, Art of Fighting, Fatal Fury, Bloody Roar, Samurai Showdown, Guilty Gear, Red Earth, Darkstalkers, Marvel Super Heroes, Rival Schools, and Killer Instinct. For the most part, I consider more than half the ones I listed more enjoyable, with more depth, and a longer lifespan than the 5 games you've listed.

    Fans of MK or fans of the old MK? Didn't realize people who are serious about fighting games wouldn't want to see if this turns out well or not. Now I think this game is definitely not for me, bummer. :/
    Street Fighter > All

    I didn't mention those games precisely because they're 2d. MK is competing in the 3d games market now. You're right though, I probably should have mentioned individual games rather than just refering to series. Tekken 4 was broken because of Jin's JFLS. Similarly SCIII was broken because of Zasalamel. MK has multiple infinite combos. If you want a better list then:
    VF5>T5DR>DOA4>SCII> MKDA

    This is based on technical aspects - depth of gameplay - as well as balance of characters. I haven't included T6 or SCIV because these haven't been tested enough yet.

    I'm a massive fan of the MK series. I helped The Limit run the official MK games site back in '97/98. I will buy this MK game when it comes out. I pray that it will be as good as I hope, but I do live in the real world. I just don't see it competing for the title of best 3d fighter out there.

    I'll give you VF and Tekken, but DoA? I mean, I like DoA games but I wouldn't place any of them above SCII...

    Joker will be in this game.

    Not a bad fatality imo.
    etufo: HS is most likely going to die sooner or later. Who will kill the cool character killer?

    Popo: well, obviously going by that logic, HS will have to kill himself...

    I think I will play it but just because they announced that Lex Luthor and Darkseid are going to be playable characters. Imagine Luthor doing a propeller kick standing on his head....lol.
