With the release of a new, high profile video game comes the release of much anger on social media. Here are some of the angriest reactions to Mortal Kombat 11.

Some of the character design was under scrutiny with gamers alleging that the female characters had been deliberately uglified. One Twitter user was firmly under the impression that socialism was to blame…

 

 

Another felt that the costume choices betrayed a hypocritical message…

 

 

One consistent theme was anger that Sheeva, the muscle-clad, mohican-sporting, four-armed warrior from another realm, wasn’t sexy enough.

 

 

 

Though another player was keen to point out that video games are primarily for playing, rather than playing with yourself…

 

 

Though that wasn’t enough for everyone…

 

 

An even more controversial talking point has been that of character Jax, whose ending sees him go back in time to undo slavery. One extremely angry individual labelled Jax the ‘Black Hitler’…

 

 

Another was furious that one of the most controversial game series in history was seemingly getting PC…

 

 

 

Not everyone was on team ‘Jax is a racist’ though…

 

 

 

And others found the whole affair quite amusing…

 

 

 

Meanwhile Snoop Dogg wasn’t remotely bothered about any of it…

 

 

 

Great stuff! We’ll see you again for the Leisure Suit Larry sequel in June.
