Mortal Kombat 9
A mass reboot to the Mortal Kombat franchise.
Called simply "Mortal Kombat" for the commercial release, people call it MK9 in order to avoid confusion with the arcade original (as if anyone plays that game anymore anyway).
Known for its gore, lack of frame data, dial-a-combos, overpowered DLC characters, and getting patched almost every weekend, regardless is still pretty fun.
Raiden from the end of MK Armageddon sends a message to Raiden from MK1 about the events in the future. Raiden tries to prevent these events from happening only to fuck everything up and kill more than half of the cast.
Pick Kabal or Kung Lao and mix up your enemy to death.
