How to play Mortal Kombat (1992) on modern systems?

I still own a copy of the original Mortal Kombat (1992) game, but I don't have my old gaming console anymore. Is there a way to play this game on modern systems?

Yes, there absolutely is. This can be achieved by using Emulators. Emulators are pieces of software which mimic a particular hardware system - a gaming console in this case. Here, you would be using an emulator for the specific console you originally played Mortal Kombat on. Here's how you can go about it: 1. Identify the Original Console: Mortal Kombat (1992) was released on various platforms like the Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo, and even some arcade machines. Identify which console's version you own. 2. Find an Emulator: Once you've identified the console, search for a reliable emulator for it. For instance, if you originally owned it for Sega Genesis, a popular emulator for windows is Gens. If it was Super Nintendo, then SNES9x is a good option. 3. Install the Emulator: Download the emulator from a reputable source and install it on your system. Be careful of downloading software from unreputable sources as they may contain malware or unwanted programs. 4. Locate Game ROM: A ROM is essentially a file that contains the game data from the original cartridge or disk. If you own the original game, in most jurisdictions you can legally download a copy of the ROM to play on your emulator. Be sure to only download ROMs for games that you already own. 5. Load the ROM into the Emulator: Once you've downloaded the ROM for Mortal Kombat, you can load it up in your chosen emulator. This is usually achieved by navigating the emulator's menu system to run the ROM file you've downloaded. Please also remember that the legality of downloading ROMs varies from place to place, so ensure you are aware of your country's laws before proceeding. Moreover, since you are emulating older hardware on modern systems, you may encounter issues (mostly performance related) depending on the system you're trying to emulate and the emulator you're using. But the gaming community is typically very supportive, so you should be able to find solutions for most issues fairly easily. And the fun of playing retro games on your modern system would be worth all that trouble! Enjoy your gaming!
