Sega Video Game, "Daytona USA," 1995

Summary

Released to arcades in 1994, Sega's Daytona USA thrilled gamers with its detailed graphics and multi-player capabilities. Up to eight cabinets could be linked together, allowing eight different players to compete in a single race. The home version, issued for the Sega Saturn in 1995, wasn't quite as sophisticated but still captured the excitement of American stock car racing.
