Midweek silliness : Noob Saibot is a noob

1 min read


Back in the early 90’s the now common derogatory term for a sucky gamer unwilling to learn, noob, wasn’t around yet. It’s unfortunate then, that Mortal Kombat’s shadowy Ninja Noob Saibot got saddled with that name. Of course, many of you know it’s the last names of Mortal Kombat creators John Tobias and Ed Boon spelled backwards. Real Mortal Kombat fans know his back story, which I won’t spoil for the uninitiated.

Here’s College Humor offshoot Dorkly’s take on his name, in which he lives up to his unfortunate moniker. Enjoy!

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
