No not necessarily. Those games had a newer technology so it's far more advanced than Race Drivin.

I'm well educated enough to know what games I like and don't like. Very sorry to hear you hate those games.

Many Midway games in the late 90s were so advanced and game was so complex it does require skill.

No not at all. You obviously have not play hydro thunder. The vehicles flying physics was that so so incredible it far exceeded to those San Francisco Rush or even Daytona.

You obviously have not played Intial D Arcade Stage games, the collision damamges were much more realistic than Daytona.

Virtua Racing was a much better game than Daytona USA.

Alpine Racer may not have the replay value that you want but it does have gameplay value. One of the best Japanese 3D snow skii games ever made.

I cannot believe directly on this one. Earlier you said the the fall of the arcades was due to poor games made by arcade manufacturers, you are missing the whole point. You just looking in one area. The main reason for the fall of the arcades is game consoles graphics have gotten better because of advancements in technology so consoles graphics are either same or better than the arcades. Online gaming has also increased in popularity where more people are now going online at home or Internets Cafes to do MMO games rather than going to arcade rooms.

Arcades are still popular in Japan. If you want to go to a place where arcades are popular then you should go to Japan.
