A new entry in the long running Mortal Kombat series released recently. Personally I've never taken fighting games all that seriously, but have enjoyed them over the years as a casual player, and especially in local multiplayer set-ups. The Street Fighter series has obviously been doing its fair share over the years, but has the latest MK brought back a new interest in anyone for fighting games?

While the genre has certainly stayed alive due largely to the competitive scene, it is sometimes hard to gauge how it is doing outside of that. For this week's open forum we want to know how many of you guys are playing Mortal Kombat X. Is the genre still as fun as it used to be? Or are things starting to get a bit tired?
