Last I heard there are 63 characters. That's just insane considering that they just stuck a different color on a Scorpion costume and called it Rain, color (robot) Smoke red and called him Sektor and how many look like Goro? 3? It's just too many for a fighting game. Now, what is the limit when creating characters? When they start recycling characters and using different moves and color schemes? Yes, but is there even a sooner point? Would creating characters after you have the original characters be considered to many? I dunno, I don't have the answer. All I know is that I loved playing Mortal Kombat games, and that it sucks that you have all these filler characters slowly ruining the game. Am I being too harsh? What do you think about the mass amount of characters being created in these video games. Not necessarily Mortal Kombat, but Street Fighter and other fighting games as well.
