- Debut: 1993
We can say for certain that this game can still be found in some arcades across the United States today. If not the original, certainly an updated version. In the early 1990s, NASCAR was becoming a pretty successful sport. Not only were fans in the U.S. compelled by it, but some Asian countries were as well. When Daytona USA was being developed by SEGA, it was actually tested on a Japanese audience first. Eventually, a full arcade version came out in the U.S. and became a huge hit. Based on the famous Daytona 500 race, players drove stock cars, attempting to win races. The graphics were revolutionary for an arcade game, even using a 60-bits-per-second frame rate. Unheard of for most arcade games in the 1990s. Making it one of the best arcade games of the 1990s or in any era.
