Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    it helps infinitely to have notes on when there's gonna be a raptor to your right or left that you can't see when you open a door.

    i also really liked the lost world game for genesis. it was top-down and i beat it... but i really couldn't tell you at all what the game played like. i should try and find a copy (or at least a youtube video to see that i'm not horribly wrong)

    There was a pretty decent JP3 arcade game, too, but the only youtube video of that one is from a cabinet where the light guns don't work. :/

    That looks awesome. And either I'm drugged or I can't tell what the fuck is going on. But it seems really ahead of it's time intellectually.

    Oh it was. You started the game as a fish and could eventually evolve into a human though I think I ended the game as some sort of terrible flying monster with pointy teeth and claws.

    Highlights of the game include:
    -Being a dinosaur
    -Killing dudes
    -Evolving based on how you killed dudes

    Zoo Tycoon Dinosaur Digs was also the best Jurassic park simulator ever.

    I just found it on GIS, but now I've followed the links and I guess you can get it from the artist here:

    http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23756899

    Doesn't seem to be available in poster size though, only 11"x14". EDIT: Oh, and it's sold out

    I almost liked the original JP arcade game better. I doubt anyone will remember this in detail, but it was 6 player X-Men era, and instead of lightguns, it had joysticks with triggers. You had an on-screen reticule and it was on-rails. There were some awesome levels where you would be chased by a TRex (whilst in a Jeep), and in order to prevent him from fucking you up you had to hit 5-6 identified spots on it within a certain amount of time.

    It was awesome.

    ...I thought I was the only one. That game ruled. Proof: there are dinosaurs with sunglasses and leather jackets in this game. Not quite flying an F14 but it was 1993.

    fuck

    I fucking loved this game

    immediately thought of this game when I read the thread title. This game was fun and pretty tough from what I remember.
