9. Street Fighter II: The World Warrior
We get it. Nobody played Street Fighter II back in the day for its riveting plot. But when you compare its storyline to that of Mortal Kombat, well, it’s like comparing James Patterson to William Faulkner. It’s not even a contest, buddy. To our understanding, there is an evil group called Shadaloo, led by a nefarious overlord named, M. Bison. And how do you reach him? By fighting and winning matches in a bathroom (E. Honda’s stage), on the streets of China (Chun-Li’s stage), and in front of some drunk Russians (Zangief’s stage). Hmm…makes sense. We approve.
