The answer to your question is Seth.

Goro's playable in one of the challenges in the Challenge Tower at least, and he's really not all that fun to play with. 
 
Also, I think it's safe to say they'll be making a sequel. All of those characters came after MK3, so I suspect the next game will cover MK4-MK:Deception, and then we'd see those characters. Also, it's worth noting that if they're going to include every character from that era (like they did in this new Mortal Kombat), they'll have about 22-24 characters already without even including a single character from the original 3 games. So if they go that route, which I think they will, many fan favorites will be left out and they'll finally be able to make all those new characters possibly not suck.

When you say "we" did you mean "I"?

Maybe I've just been watching too much Star Trek, but scrolling by I thought that last picture was supposed to be Data.

@scarace360: Nothing is wrong with him, he was just designed to be a playable character on top of being a boss. Something Goro, Kintaro, and Shao Kahn most certainly weren't.

Ed Boon had Motaro killed in the single player story simply so they wouldn't be able to make him playable.

This.

Keep playable bosses as fucking far away from this game as possible. NetherRealm is doing everything they can just to balance it correctly now. I can't imagine how fucking backwards this game would be if you could use any of the endgame characters.

Me, I hope this is a one-and-done scenario with Freddy Krueger. We had MK vs. DC. We're tired of hodge-podging Mortal Kombat characters with other dudes and dudettes. Keep it pure.

Yah it's kind of weird to address Netherrealm like they would some how stumble onto this topic.

Mortal Kombat Trilogy allowed you to play as bosses and it broke the game. It was totally unbalanced competitively.

It would be neat if you could dick around with bosses in practice mode, but they obviously don't want to mess up the balances they have for actual fights. And of course more [optional] DLC characters would be appreciated, but MK10 is inevitable and it will need new characters and existing characters not included in MK9.

This is an awful, awful idea. 
 
Who the hell wants Drahmin?

Your response to my opinion is telling me to "shut up"?

I can't tell if you're joking or if you're actually upset. Do you understand the purpose of a forum?

@TechHits: sorry
#30 Posted by MKF30 (85 posts) -

I want Fujin, Michael Myers, Riddick and Nick Scryer :)

#31 Posted by Floppypants (798 posts) -

I want a 1v1 mode where I can pick who the computer plays as.

#32 Posted by Dany (7887 posts) -

Some of those would be cool but playable bosses are a no for me.

For fighting games they are meant to be cheap and have a arsenal of attacks and combos that would be near impossible match to buttons.

#33 Posted by Sanious (793 posts) -

No. 
 
Adding Freddy Krueger was a bad enough joke as it is.

#34 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

Adding Freddy wasn't ideal for me, but I would welcome other Mortal Kombat dlc characters. Not so sure I want bosses though.

I really hope you're kidding. As a lifelong MK fan, that would destroy my allegiance to MK entirely.
#37 Posted by BestUsernameEver (4825 posts) -

Yeah, I think they need to have content for the sequel, if they make everything DLC for this game, what's the point of a sequel to them? All these extras characters will probably be in the next installment, also, stop whining. 

#38 Posted by TwoLines (2819 posts) -

That would suck. A boss character has to be unbalanced to be a boss. If not, he's just a character, like any other, and I don't think you mean that.

So no, I don't think any of this is a good idea.

NO i''m not. Jedah is a cool characters why not make him the boss instead
#40 Posted by President_Barackbar (3467 posts) -

Why in the flying fuck would you want a return of the "large" characters? I hated them in MK:A because they had to make those characters unaffected by throws and the like, and it completely destroyed the game balance. Also, Moloch and Drahmin are probably two of the most uninteresting characters in the entire franchise.

Look at that guy. If you think he would fit in Mortal Kombat, you're nuts. Maybe Marvel vs Capcom, but definitely not MK.
#43 Posted by Skald (4369 posts) -

This thread is just awful.

#44 Posted by Xeiphyer (5606 posts) -

Because all those boss characters are a blast to fight against, I definitely want more of them so everyone can use them in online!

#47 Posted by Toxin45 (117 posts) -

Alright everyone stop making fun of me This idea is okay so it's still my opinions the people form youtube and other sites some might agree with this.So go to your emo corners

#48 Posted by Cheesebob (1243 posts) -

Because youtube commenters are the sanest people on the internet.

Goro sucked to play in MK9 so why would you want bosses actually playable?

#49 Posted by hermberger (121 posts) -

I guess thats you're opinion and all that.

I suggest you get better opinions, though. Like the opinion that MK is a great game that doesn't need any of that stuff.
