32.Mortal Kombat II


The high point of my life came the night I saw the movie Clifford, starring Martin Short. After the show, I made a beeline to the Mortal Kombat II machine in the lobby. Spectators gathered, mostly kids my age — 12 and 13. I chose Liu Kang as my fighter, crushed my opponent with a flurry of fireballs and flying kicks, and, when prompted to finish him, entered a command string I’d been practicing at home for months: down, forward, back, back, high kick. Liu Kang morphed into a dragon and chomped off his opponent’s torso. I stepped away from the machine, stone-faced. “You can have my credit,” I said to an awestruck preteen, before slipping into the crowd. It’s all been downhill from there. _Mitch Krpata
