96: Hero Worship

"In 1985, the arcades were graced with an unusual space-based shooter called Section-Z. Colorful, boisterous, sci-fi inspired coin-ops were in high demand, and although Section-Z was, to some degree, camouflaged by the incessant white-noise of game development gone mad, it united a cult of followers who still remain disturbingly loyal. Other games would come along very soon afterward and do everything Section-Z did - and do it better - but Capcom, at least, can lean back in its chair and, with hands behind an indifferent head, say, 'We did that first.'"
