I didn't know anyone in Mortal Kombat had a sexuality lol

When you think about it, it was the next logical step after "Babalities" and "Animalities". I can see it now, "Finish him!" you input a series of buttons and your character says "I like to sleep with girls/guys" then the announcer says "Sexuality".

Wait......a "Sexuality" finishing move after someone yells "Finish him!" This sounds more like porn to me. 

Come to think of it, I bet a Mortal Kombat spin-off porn would actually sell pretty well. Mortal Kombat XXX? 

OP, sorry to derail the thread. I think it's a cool direction to have a gay character with a backstory. 

It'll be awhile before I figure out how to do one of these. :P 

No thanks.

But it's just dialog. An inconsequential subtle part of a character's backstory that doesn't effect the game.

Why do we need to know the characters sexuality? Why bring it up at all?

Exactly.  It's a fighting game.  Who cares?  I like the way it was done for Ellie in Last of us.  It wasn't mentioned at all in the main game because it wasn't important.  I haven't played any story modes with MKX yet, but it seems like it's the case here too.  I just don't get making a scene out of it all.  

Why not bring up the fact that this is the only main stream fighting game that has ever had at least two black females?  Tanya and Jaqui.  


... And, Alfredo worded what I was trying to say a whole lot better than I did.

Watch the internet overly react to this for no reason.

"Just for comparison Uncharted 4 was 20x bigger than Splatoon 2. This shows the huge difference between Sony's first-party games and Nintendo's first-party games."

ohh i was thinking you were talking about the costumer, thaths the person who get fucked in the ass the most in Mortal Kombat.

Character development. Adds to his backstory. Explains why he isnt in with the Shaolin Monks at that point in the game.

Then why it his sexuality his  identity? Doesn't seem very organic and the stories make it seem very token.

"We'll toss the dice however they fall,
And snuggle the girls be they short or tall,
Then follow young Mat whenever he calls,
To dance with Jak o' the Shadows."
