The Most Obvious Videogame Crossover that still hasn't happened:

Street Fighter vs Mortal Kombat... Why hasn't it happened!? I mean Capcom has crossed over with, Namco, SNK and Marvel while Mortal Kombat has battled the DC Universe.
Yet the big two haven't faced each other in a fighting game... (Neither have Marvel and DC but that's a story for another rant...)

Now From the MK Side, we have Ed Boon who'd LIKE to do it... Sadly it seems that the Capcom half ain't ready for a crossover with Mortal Kombat

Now I'm going to state the Obvious: 2 Games... When Capcom and SNK crossed over they did it that way, and they're doing it the same way in SF&Tekken Crossover games. Scorpion's Classic Unmask and Burn could be a nice Hyper Combo in the veins of Dhalsim's Yoga Inferno.
or Liu Kang's MK1 Pirouette Uppercut Fatality could be turned into a Crawler Assault type of Hyper combo.

(Obviously made a bit more over the top since it's a hyper combo)
All that Capcom has to do is make a super cool crossover game, personally I'd prefer if they went with a more crazy and over the top game (like the MVC series) but using old school 2-on-2 matches.

On the other hand Nether Realm Studios' half could go ALL MK with the Street Fighters.
Heck! Some of their Hyper moves could be borderline Fatalities.
Dhalsim's Yoga inferno could work similar to Scorpion's Classic Fatality. The Shun Goku Satsu could be Akuma's Fatality.

Ryu's could be a Shin Shoryuken that slices the opponent... (Story reason, something something dark energies from MK's realm affecting the lighter Capcom Realm characters)

That way everyone wins. Hopefully talks could start once this SF&Tekken thing ends... My guess is that Capcom doesn't want to do it... Street Fighter is more Superior than Mortal Kombat Mentality and all that... While I Prefer Street Fighter over Mortal Kombat, I Definitely think that this crossover would IS more anticipated than Tekken... Cause SNK is now out of the picture.

The closest thing we've got to SFvsMK or MKvsSF was the KAK from MK Armageddon... Now we need this for real!! C'mon Capcom!!
