Is 5 years old a normal age to introduce MK to a child?

Anyway, I was exactly 5 when my elder brother (who was 12) started playing MK 3 Ultimate. And of course I watched, and sometimes he even let me play as his opponent. I just pressed the buttons chaotically but sometimes I won (or is it a false memory?). Oh and he had a small notebook with an MK logo on it (of course he drew it himself with a marker). There one could find lists of fatalities and brutalities. To me it was of no help :(

I discovered Mortal Kombat 4 around the same age as you, or maybe, I was a bit older than you. I found the game in my dad's collection of discs and was immediately drawn by the dragon logo and the figure of Goro on the cover, and launched it myself when my parents were not home. It is not the best age to see Sub-Zero separating someone's spine out of body, which I agree with, but I can not remember being disturbed by it

@tellmewhy, oh boy, it does. I remember playing MK Deception - I also had to make notes about moves, combos, brutalities. I mostly copied it from video game magazines back in the days, and some - from what my friends told me (those never worked, lol). It's just this magical sense of discovering something new that it brings in me

Man, it's effed up to introduce MK to small kid, I hope you turned out fine, haha :) Though, that "little notebook" with brutalities and fatalities does strike a nostalgic cord in me

If you want to broke childs mind by brutality or fatality, yes. Please, don't show MK for little kind. This game has an age limit!
