You probably don't know him by face, but you definitely know his voice. Steve Ritchie is the man responsible for the voices in the original Mortal Kombat. You know, "FATALITY!" Or, "ROUND ONE, FIGHT!"
Every kid heard these phrases back in the 90's, whether while gaming in an arcade, or from friends who used them before beating their friends up. With this, Richie has introduced himself to millions of gamers over the years.

In a new video by Great Big Story, Richie is interviewed about his work on Mortal Kombat, and even reads some of the lines for us in-person. It's surprisingly interesting, and gives some new context to one of gaming's greatest classics.
Steve Richie has since lended his voice for a variety of pinball games released under the Stern brand.
