Here’s a little video of SEGA’s awesome arcade racing game, Outrun. I believe that Turbo, Pole Position, and Outrun are the three greatest arcade racers of all time and this video shows how the game plays and talks about some of the history and its creator Yu Suzuki. This is a cabaret version, which is a smaller cabinet but has the full size monitor. I also installed the high score and freeplay mod. You can get the mod here:

    Hey what’s a good monitor to use for this game? I bought this exact machine for cheap because the neck tube was broken. Not sure if I should replace with same monitor.

    The Outrun arcade game I used to play was the shape of a Ferrari, and had hydraulics, so the whole thing moved left and right when you played it.

    It's just my favorite game! I own it on Master system, Megadrive, Gba and Saturn with the steering wheel! I know it by heart but
    this cabaret version is my dream! Maybe one day………."merci pour cette belle démonstration!"

    I'm sure you get asked this ALL THE TIME – but are these games for private use only or do you have times when you open it up to the public?

  14. Riz2336 says:

    Hell yeah, I remember you traded or sold this game out of your collection. I recently got the Sega Saturn port of it (it's pretty much an arcade perfect port) and it's a really awesome game and as you mentioned yes it's pretty challenging but I have beaten it on normal mode it did take a lot of practice to pull it off though.

    John, you say that its' very hard to get to the end of this game. That is true; however, I've heard that the fastest route for finishing this game is: Right, Left, Right, Right

  21. Paul Barnes says:

    My most long lasting memory from Outrun is from the fall of 1988. We were vacationing at Playa de Las Americas and the hotel (Laguna Park 2) pool bar had this game. The memorable part was that the insulation of the game was not the best and it leaked a bit of current so you would get a tingling feeling if playing with even a little bit of moist feet.
