Mortal Kombat is solely responsible for the creation of the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board). Well not really, but it sure helped. The gruesome, excessive, extreme acts of bodily dismemberment shocked parents and kids alike (although the kids tended to like it).

Lots of it (and very cheesy comments).
