Favourite ability from a video game: Scorpion's Spear
I am not much of a fighting game fan, but Mortal Kombat seems to be one of the few game series I always get (even the mediocre games that came out after MK3). Part of that comes from Mortal Kombat being the first "Mature" game I wanted to play. I can remember seeing the first commercial for Mortal Kombat on TV and needing to track it down. I had played Street Fighter 2 quite a bit before it, but the special moves in MK where just so much more interesting to me. I still think that there are few, if any, moves that are as effective and as brutal as Scorpions spear.
