I have a feeling that a great deal of us who were teens, tweens, etc when the first Mortal Kombat came out were hooked from day 1. I know I lost quite a bit of quarters at arcades, corner stores, and card stores because of Street Fighter 2 (pick a version including the Alpha games) and Mortal Kombat 1-3.
Heck in NYC many of the pizza shops had Samurai Showdown 1 or 2, Street Fighter Alpha 1 or 2, and Mortal Kombat 3 lined right next to each other. It was a pick your poison marathon for many of us on countless days.
