Action Role-Playing video games (also known as RPG or ARPG) are a subgenre of role-playing video games that tend to focus on action and fighting instead of level progressing and planning. Action RPG often incorporates various elements from action games and even from action-adventure games. Big part of this genre are also so-called “Diablo clones” or hack & slash games.
The typical action RPG focuses mainly on combat, at the cost of simplifying (or removing) all non-combat attributes and statistics. Additionally, combat always takes place in the real-time system and relies on the player's ability to perform particular actions with optimal speed and accuracy. All top action RPGs tend to focus more on the collection of randomized treasure (or loot) than story progression that is found in other types of role-playing games.

Created and developed by Midway in 1992, the series quickly amassed a very big and loyal fanbase. Few people know this, but the first game was created because a different one (featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme) was canceled. Instead, Midway developed a fantasy-horror fighting game and the Mortal Kombat brand was born. The original game has spawned many sequels and has spun a massive media franchise. Currently, it consists of several action-adventure games, movies, and TV series (both live-action and animated). Other spin-offs include comic book series, a card game and even a distinct line of toys.
Mortal Kombat is currently one of the most successful fighting franchises in the history of video games (along with Street Fighter and Tekken) as well as one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time.
It goes without saying that Mortal Kombat has a reputation for high levels of gore and violence. The finishing moves (called Fatalities) were actually one of the main reasons behind the creation of ESRB video game rating system.
