Back in the Stone Age of full-color arcade games, Sega decided to reinvent the first-person racing game. The end result was Super Hang-On, and it proved so popular that they decided to retool it as an car racing game, tweaking the game engine in the process for better performance. Thus was the road racing legend known as Out Run born. In this series of games, you (and oftimes your girlfriend riding shotgun) get to take part in a long cross-country road race that measures not only your endurance but your ability to stay on the road while avoiding various obstacles, such as other vehicles coming at and from behind you. Spawned several successors and many, many imitators; however, its the original that everybody remembers.

OutRunners, again ported straght from the arcade - it's the classic OutRun revisited but adds a split-screen two-player head-to-head mode and gives you a small selection of cars frim which to choose - this is in most fans' opinion the best game of the Genesis series.
