Best Damn Video Game Podcast #15 – Jurassic Park and dinosaur games

Dinosaur Party Best Damn Video Game Podcast #15   Jurassic Park and dinosaur games

INTERACTIVE CD-ROM!! Oh my god, why didn’t we talk about the advent of CD-ROM and how Jurassic Park and video games at the time introduced the world to a whole new frontier of media… storage?! No, instead we talk about Jurassic Park‘s influence and video games that capitalized on the dinosaur craze of the 90s. Will the craze come back? Find out, as we tackle, uh, everything from Dino Crisis to Monster Hunter, to video game movies, back to dinosaur games, to Capcom’s woes once more, to Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Shovel Knight and Batman: Arkham Origins. Sure. Will Greenwald of PCMag.com, Terry Lewis of The Other View and resident action expert Gabriel Zamora join me in one of our more irreverent escapades.
