Virtua Racing Deluxe

 

Virtua Racing was one of the first racing arcade games to use 3D polygon graphics. Initially, it was felt that the game could not be ported to any home consoles because the game used a special board (called Model 1) that was too complex to replicate for a home system. Two years later, Sega introduced the Sega Virtua Processing chip that allowed them to port a paired down version of the game to the Genesis/MD.

Virtua Fighter

 

Virtua Fighter was the first arcade fighting game to feature full 3D polygon graphics and it is the first in a successful series. Sega decided to take advantage of the added power of the 32X and ported the game to the system (they would later release the title for the Sega Saturn). This is the type of game that shows off what the 32X can do as the 3D polygon graphics would not have been possible with the Genesis/MD 16-bit chip.

Several arcade games were created inspired by these movies, including a quite famous vector version by Atari released in 1983. Ten years later, Sega created their own arcade version of Star Wars (based on A New Hope) which was ported to the 32X a year later.
