How many Mortal Kombat games are there in total? (All systems)

I dont know about you guys but im a bit crazy when it gomes to games. Rarely do i buy a game lets say like Burnout 3 without having 1 and 2. Most of the time if im interested in a game thats a few games into its own series, i go back and get the previous chapters. I own and played to completetion GTA 3 and GTA:VC and recently went back and bought the GTA Collector's Ed. box set to own thw whole collection.
Now you can see where im going with Mortal Kombat. Ive played some of Deception and love it and i will be buying it soon. I use to own the first 2 MK's but i think i traded them in long ago, dont know why. Anyways, how many MKs are there in total on all systems? I doubt ill get them all ( i know some where like puzzle games and things like that), but im curious to know.

Mortal Kombat 1 (SNES, GEN)
Mortal Kombat 2 (SNES, GEN, PSX)
Mortal Kombat 3 (SNES, GEN, PSX)
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 (SNES, GEN)
Mortal Kombat Trilogy (PSX, N64)
Mortal Kombat 4 (PSX, N64)
Mortal Kombat Gold (DC)
Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance (PS2, XBOX, GC)
Mortal Kombat Deception (PS2, XBOX)

And then there were the two spin-offs:
Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero (PSX, N64)
Mortal Kombat Special Forces (PSX)

I think that covers pretty much everything.

Including lesser-known systems and portables:

Mortal Kombat (SNES, Genesis, Sega CD, Gameboy, Game Gear)
Mortal Kombat II (SNES, Genesis, PSX, Sega Saturn, Gameboy, Game Gear)
Mortal Kombat 3 (SNES, Genesis, Gameboy)
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 (SNES, Genesis, Sega Saturn)
Mortal Kombat Trilogy (PSX, N64, Sega Saturn, Game.com)
Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero (PSX, N64)
Mortal Kombat 4 (PSX, N64, Gameboy Color)
Mortal Kombat: Special Forces (PSX)
Moral Kombat Gold (Dreamcast)
Mortal Kombat Advance (Gameboy Advance)
Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance (PS2, Gamecube, Xbox, Gameboy Advance)
Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition (Gameboy Advance)
Mortal Kombat: Deception (PS2, Gamecube, Xbox)

As bub2000 pointed out, there are also PC versions of some as well as arcade versions of 1-3 and Ultimate MK3. There were also several Tiger Electronics portable versions (remember those things?) made of the first few games. As you can imagine, they weren't very good.

I remember the PSX/SS version of MK2 being pretty difficult to find.

I've never seen the PSX version of MK2 before, but I've seen/ played the SS version of MK2 a few times. It's actually a pretty good port. The only downside to that version are the awful loadtimes, all though that's been a problem for all of the CD versions of the MK games.

The PSX version of MK2 is apparently very rare, though I'm not sure if it's actually worth anything. The SS version is the easier of the two to find.

I've still got the Sega CD one, its pretty much arcade perfect, but yeah they did go through a period when they milked the hell out of that franchise.

Keep in mind Mortal Kombat: Deception will have the original Mortal Kombat as a bonus feature. Also, the just-released Midway Arcade Classics 2 includes Mortal Kombat 2 and Mortal Kombat 3.

Yes, and they were quite good, given the technology available at the time.

There's also a PC port of MK4.
