[[File:Out Run Title.png|right|160px]]'''''OutRun''''' (アウトラン) is an arcade game developed by [[Sega AM2]] in 1986 for [[Sega OutRun Hardware|specially designed hardware]]. It was designed by [[Yu Suzuki]], and is often considered a milestone in the driving/racing genre, being ported to numerous home playforms and inspiring several sequels. Rather than be classed as a "racing game", Yu Suzuki classifies ''OutRun'' as a "driving game".
