Should Top Gear have received an arcade release during the 90’s?

When it comes down to racing games the Top Gear series is one of the most well known titles of the early 90’s.   The original Top Gear game was so much fun to play for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and many people feel that the series itself was underrated.  In terms of worldwide sales the Top Gear games for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System did  not do to well.  Some people would probably argue that the original Top Gear game should have received an arcade release before it was released for the SNES.   During the early 90’s we had so many cool racing games in arcade centers worldwide including Sega Outurn, Daytona USA and Cruis’n USA that eventually received various ports to different game consoles.

Some would argue that if the original Top Gear game for the SNES was featured in arcade centers first the game would have been much bigger than it was during the early 90’s.  However, it quite debatable on whether or not Top Gear would have been big as Sega Outrun or Daytona USA back then.  It also debatable on whether or not it would have lead to more worldwide sales for the Super Nintendo.   But the original Top Gear game had the potential to be an arcade classic considering the fact that you had a limited amount of cars to choose from along with a few stages similar to most arcade racing games.
