It really was a long time ago. My dad bought me my first video game console, Sega Millennium. There, for games, it needed not disks or the Internet, but cartridges (such square boxes, about the size of a large smartphone). We usually bought them in the market.

 

By the way, it was in those days that I first played Mortal Kombat. It was cool! We played with friends and had fun!

@Tommyhuntergun, he is most likely from the countriy of the former Soviet block. It was very common (and probably, is?) to buy unofficial releases of video games in market kiosks and counters. They were mostly Sega bootlegs, but sometimes you could dig a gold there. Long story short, that's how my older cousin got a copy of MK 2 off the market and shared it with me

Sounds neat. I got my first MK game (MK 3) after reading about it in the video game magazine. I was an angsty 11 year-old kid back then, who was hell-bent on consuming video games, animes, and comic books that felt dark and violent to me. Back then, I was friends with the cashier in the video games store, so he did not only sold the game to me, but also played it with me for the first time (shoutout to you, Randy). Beautiful, simpler times

P.S. how do you buy video games at the market?

Ooff, man your story is waaaay before my time. I got into the series only with MK9. Before that, I was not really a fighting games type, but I liked brutal and gory stuff. Think Manhunt, Postal and Dead Rising. Now, I liked the fatalities and story mode, but I stayed for competition, in the end. I had a friend who was more experienced with MK, and he was flexing hard on me. Eventually, I was just so salty that I started pouring hours into the game until I beat his sorry ass. That felt good, my god. Spite is the best motivator, don't let anyone make you think otherwise
