Mortal Kombat never did it for me as a fighting game, I found it too gameplay stiff and the art shock value eventually wears off.

This said, story-wise, I think it has the best plot of the fighting games out there and I congratulate whoever sat down and stitched together what once was a very disjointed plot.

Of course, having the best plot of a fighting game is an extremely low bar to jump but the kombatants shenanigans are serviceable enough for me to see the video compilations and see where the story is going.
