Smosh Games takes on the over-the-top action and explosive patriotism of the Call of Duty franchise. And while it does tend to be the same game over and over again, there’s still nothing like jumping out of a plane with guns blazing.

Sub Zero then used his ice powers to fashion said organ into a sharp tipped spear, which he then proceeded to jam into Scorpion’s eye. Think about that for a second. Someone at a development studio imagined that. Then someone in the art department said, “I can draw that!” A team of programmers and artists then set about animating it. And then someone in charge of the budget signed off on it. If the moral brigade has a problem with the violence in games like GTA V and the Call Of Duty franchise, Mortal Kombat X is gonna make them freak the f**k out. Awesome.
