I haven't got the game yet, stupid NZ release date. But ever since the movie (the first one). Ive always had a soft spot for Sub-Zero.

Smoke,Reptile,Jax and ermac.

Jade. High and low projectiles, boost kick and that staff throw all make her pretty damn versatile.

Story wise, probably Scorpion.

I share in the Kitana love, she has some wicked looking combos, and her second fatality is pretty messed up :D

I've always been a fan of Sub-zero and his story stuff has always been really cool.  His arcade mode ending is just ridiculously awesome as well.

These days, my top three are Ermac, Kabal, and Kung Lao.  I'm warming up to Noob at the moment tho

Johnny Cage for pure hilarity and Sub-Zero/Cyber Sub-Zero

Smoke, as he was the only character I was ever able to beat MK3 on the SNES with.

So the first time I played this character in the story mode I kinda hated him but the more I play him the more I love him. Stryker is my fav character.

I mean I don't know about this magic fire ball crap I have never seen a fire ball I know what a gun is I have seen a gun before.

@Kokoro:  You should really do a poll dude, so we can see the results. Think this is like the fourth time someone's done this!

Probably Stryker.

Kano is number 1 for me. Would love to be good with Quan Chi.

Cyber Sub-Zero. 

Regular Sub-Zero has problems that I really dislike. Especially that clone move that doesn't work when you are near them. Not to mention the slow ass ground freeze that lasts only for a short time.

Not particularly fond of the freeze counter that CSZ has but I prefer it over the regular one. And I absolutely love his jumping dive kick and teleport. Makes it easy to traverse across the stage, giving mobility to a character that would otherwise feel slow.

Johnny Cage! The lovable douche! Any man that has a infinite supply of sunglasses is awesome by my book.

Mine is Kitana, i always liked her fans in MK2, the sheer amount of blood that spews out when you hit someone with em

I just spent about an hour practicing some Ermac kombos since he is quickly shaping up to be my favorite. His moves are super easy to link together (even for a noob such as myself) and he is just super fun to play. Linking his X-ray into a kombo for 8 hits and 40% damage is extremely satisfying. I can't wait to see what I can do with him once I get better at the game. I just wish his uppercut recovery was a little bit quicker.

I've been using a lot of Stryker, trying to figure out what works and what doesn't. I am pretty terrible at Mortal Kombat, I always have been. I figured maybe, just maybe, this time I could do it!
