Dr Disrespect thinks Mortal Kombat deaths should be in more games

Dr. Disrespect suggested Mortal Kombat deaths should be in more video games. Dr Disrespect has made a name for himself as an outrageous and, at times, controversial live streamer. The content creator found success on Twitch after working as a level designer on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, but the streamer has gone to a lot of effort to create a character different from himself. Nevertheless, on several occasions over the years, Dr. Disrespect has been considered a respected source for analysis and criticism of shooters. Considering he not only worked on one of the biggest game franchises and started his own game studio to work on a new shooter, he seems to know a thing or two about the genre.

When we talk about Escape from TarkovIn Arena Mode, Dr Disrespect started talking about how games can reward players more. The creator noted how disappointed he was with how games like PUBG treat winners, mentioning the not too rewarding “chicken dinner” text box. In a game like Mortal Kombat, players can slay their opponent and celebrate a victory in style with a fatality. This results in an absurdly brutal and gory finishing move that is unique to the character they play and is often humiliating for the person on the other end of things. Dr. Disrespect noted that he would like to see something similar in more games to provide a more satisfying win.

“I think if you win a game you should be rewarded hugely in an entertaining way,” he said. “Kind of like Mortal Kombat does, you know? You beat the guy and guess what? You won, you get to finish him. Wish there was something cool like that.”

Whether any of these ideas will make it into its untitled AAA shooter remains to be seen, but the game is built with fans in mind. It seems likely that it will apply what it has heard from its viewers over the years and their desires for the FPS genre. Of course, it remains to be seen how good this game will be, but it’s an interesting prospect nonetheless.
