Over at my old haunt, I'd occasionally throw out a topic and talk about it for a week. I'd link back, but the blog was deleted for some reason or another. Anyways... I'd thought I'd try it here. This week, I'll detail the history of the Cruis'n series. It's been 15 years since Cruis'n USA hit arcades (well, almost- I think it was released in the fall of 1994), and really, it's been a guilty pleasure for me. I always hold Sega racers in high regard, but there's something about the Cruis'n series. Maybe it's the quick play mechanics where you can play it for five minutes and feel satisfied... maybe it's the music... maybe it's having fun with a friend... but it always has a special place in my gaming canon. Here's a YouTube of the Grand Canyon level in Cruis'n USA. And no, I don't know why Mount Rushmore pops up at the end. See you guys later!
