Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro widescreen with cinescopes
Darius was the very first arcade machine using 3 cinescopes in a mirror system. This positioned the center screen normally, but the two extra screens were actually projected onto a display making the illusion of a single 3X wide display.
Pro Multiple endings
Because of it's non-linear design, you could choose your own path which could result in different endings. This is a much more immersive game experience, as you feel more invested in the game as your decisions actually matter.
Pro Used a vibrator
Among one of the first console games that optionally came with a vibrator.
Pro Great DJ based soundtrack
Perhaps one of the very first games with a soundtrack composed by professional DJs.
