Since the glory days of the 1980's some genres have been synonymous with certain titles. I say platform titles, you think Mario Brothers. For fighting titles, Street Fighter. With driving games, for me anyway, it's always been about OutRun.
Originally unleashed upon arcades in 1986, OutRun was Sega's biggest hit up until that point! When you consider that the original release is older than the targeted 'modern gamer', OutRun truly is a title that has stood the test of time.
