Why A Great Jurassic Park Game Would Be Really Great

Do a little research on the history of Jurassic Park games and you will come to find the same thing that I did in preparation for this article: it’s a spotty lineage at best. On top of that, their franchise hasn’t stuck its head into the gaming world in quite some time (minus the at best forgettable game of 2011 from Telltale. In light of this weekend’s release of Jurassic Park 3D, what’s a better time than now to mention that, somehow, a game in which you are running in constant terror from genetically engineered dinosaurs hasn’t made its way into the digital world of video games?

A "DayZ style" Jurassic Park would be great.

I want a JP game where you actually have to survive.

* Collect items and parts and wood and make a survival shelter.

* Open world is a must. The whole Island has to be open.

* Give us ways to move around EX: Let us discover/find/earn dirtbike, car, hangglider, parachute, raft, grapple hook ect.....

* Make dinos scary as hell and hard to kill, so it's realistic.

* Let us customize our park and let others visit once we have accomplished certain goals like making a part of the park safe enough for visitors.

* Let things that happen, remain happened...if that makes any sense...as in choices matter.

If I actually killed the T-rex in the area, that actually means there are less T-rex's in the area from that point on.....but let him be hard has hell to kill.

* Let us build traps and stuff to catch kill dinosaurs.

definitely agreed with the open world. Open world on the original island! Can't go wrong!!

I wish they would put out the JP arcade games on one of the consoles. Those were awesome.

Monster Hunter say Hi. Capcom just need to make a true next gen Monster Hunter game and there you have it. A bada** dinosaurs game to play.

A great any game would be great. Tautology.

I'm dying to see a new AAA dinosaur game... Surely the built up hype around BF3 dino mode rumour shows dev's that people are screaming out for this sort of game.

With the next gen tech coming out it would be perfect for an open world, giant dinosaur, survival game!

Jurassic Park: The Game

Telltale kind of... already made it...


I would love a Dino Crisis like game. In fact, I WANT THEM TO BRING BACK THAT FRANCHISE! REMAKE IT :(

made it, but it was mediocre at best.

A Jurassic Park game in the style of Far Cry would be amazing.

Obviously, that includes the RPG-esque character development, too.

I really enjoyed Operation Genesis. Thought it was understated game - I could have hours of fun on that.

If they were to make one... I actually think it SHOULD NOT be a shooter of any sort, outside of having perhaps a tranquilizer gun of some sort.

Make it some sort of interesting dinosaur park simulation game. Get into the uncovering fossils, the science behind their resurrection and so on. Just a visual experience with interesting gameplay based upon something other than killing stuff for a change...

But if they absolutely have too... I will merrily waste some velociraptors for the sake of science.
Sandmano  +   540d ago
Yes that's all jolly good and everything but who the heck would buy a game like that? I don't even think there's a market for a game like that.
cyclindk  +   540d ago
Probably have to be on PC I guess... I know most games these days revolve around "shooting" of some sort.

A little sad, but maybe someday... someday...
Upstate8987  +   540d ago
like a jurassic park tycoon? lol...interesting concept
cyclindk  +   540d ago
Well they have a little app for ipad called Jurassic Park builder I've been fooling around with, but they could obviously do so much more with more powerful machines.

A sort of dino-safari game that lets you take-in the grandeur of, well, dinosaurs!
Sandmano  +   540d ago
I used to enjoy past Jurassic park games especially the lost world one.
ironfist92  +   540d ago
Far Cry style Jurassic Park game would be amazing.
Sandmano  +   540d ago
Agreed but like someone already said DayZ style one I mean imagine how scary it would be walking through the forest only to run into a T-Rex!!!
Tommymk2  +   540d ago
Dino crisis is still the closest we've got was a pretty good game back in the day
Haules  +   540d ago
I'd love a remake of the Genesis games!

Yes a JP game could be awesome. I have been waiting for a truly great JP game since the first movie came out. Seeing what the next gen games and PC games can do just makes me realize even more how intense and awesome it would be. If they needed to have multi-player, they could do a survival mode where everyone starts in the middle of the island(make it massive) and either be the last survivor or make it off the island. People could go on their own (more silent and only deal with the choices they make) or team up and risk being more noisy (conversations over headsets would manifest in the game and draw attention) or having someone purposely put you in danger. VERY limited weapons. If you die, you're dead. You can either watch to see who wins/how people die (dinos, falls, electric fences, etc) or you can move on to a new game.
