At best, Meat was
an entertaining "joke character" in MK4/Gold. He seemed thrown in
as a last-minute secret character... but was worth a few laughs at least. Why Midway decided to
bring him back in Armageddon, wearing underwear, is another discussion.
They clearly didn't
put much thought into his re-design, making his inclusion in MK:
Armageddon roster seem forced. Although, the fact that he exists in the game
makes Armageddon's roster seem as comprehensive as humanly possible. Too
bad the game sucked.
Fuirthermore, Meat appearing in Armageddon right alongside other prominent
MK games helped give the game the "cheap" and low-budget vibe that it
seemed to be going for. "Grraaadededededaaaah!"
Brilliant design, Midway. No wonder you went bankrupt.
