Now it’s no secret I am not a fan of Mortal Kombat but I can at least see the appeal beyond the digitised graphics. There’s something fun in there, even though I can only catch a glimpse of it. But Pit Fighter is just garbage through and through and there’s no denying it.

But it was popular for some reason! It was even on magazine covers and everything. And they even ported it to all the home machines including for some bizarre reason the C64?!
