Justin kicks off the first week of this new section with an old Genesis game, Virtua Racing. Released in '93 and was the first model 1 racing game. He claims that if it were not for this game, modern racing games wouldn't exist or at least not in the form they're in now. It also has triangles for trees. "Triangles for trees for the win!"
