You know its a good idea.. that's why you came here. Im thinking large open maps with varying objectives such as reach the compound.. reach the helicopter/boat/jeep whatever. Campaigns with interconnected maps and of course Dinosaurs. It should be paced to build tension; with raptors stalking the players and T-rex heard from a great distance away. The emphasis should be on survival and teamwork rather than shooting every dinosaur that crosses your path. What do you guys think about this?

@DeavonW: Dinosaurs > Zombies

Now that I think of it, it has been a long time since I've experienced surprise dinosaurs in my video games.

The last time I can remember it happening was Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2's Yuri's Revenge expansion pack during which a time machine mishap was involved and for a mission you actually had to fend off dinosaurs attacking your units as the time machine got fixed to return you back to your proper time period.

... I guess we could use more surprise dinosaurs in our video games considering what I just mentioned was from almost a decade ago.

They seem woefully underused. As I am currently watching videos of Jurassic Park Trespasser I wondered what happened in the 2000s where everyone suddenly decided that dinosaurs were not marketable anymore. Dinosaurs are deadly, numerous, intimidating and were once real. Instead we get Zombies and Russian in every game lol

@Canteu: To me that game looked like pandemonium. Straight up death match doesn't drum up the feelings of tension and dread that a more survival based game would in my opinion. That said Ill be buying that when it comes up if just for the awkward petrodon walking animations.

@DeavonW: L4D is hardly tension based. In vs it's just as bad as a deathmatch except you have an objective to reach.

@Canteu: Bad example then... that breed of coop is very rare. I remember playing Dead Island on hard with my brother and I remembered the thrill I felt when we both had to run for our lives away from swarms of undead. Running for ones life in first person is highly entertaining... if you dont agree with that then why have games like Slender and Amnesia become such gaming phenomenons.

@DeavonW: I never disagreed with you. I just pointed out that L4D was a bad example.

hey man, that's too intense, needs to be dialed down a bit. Half-zombie dinosaurs

Yeah, this already exists pretty much. It's more "deathmatch" type gameplay than any kind of structured progression, but mechanics-wise it's basically the same:

Undead Dinosaur Nazi-Communists, now there's an idea.

You mean Left 4 Deader?

#18 Posted by laserbolts (5365 posts) -

I would like a new Dino Crisis similar to the first one.

Nazi zombie dinosaurs in space is my new game. Who wants to help make it!?!?!??!?!?!

#20 Posted by DeavonW (42 posts) -

This shits gone off the rails! I draw the line at fascist dinosaurs.

I support this Nazi/Communist-zombie-dinosaurs-in-space killing game. As long as it is not just Left4Dead with the enemies switched to dinosaurs, I'd like at least a little variation. And no rehashing of Dinosaur D-Day-- if one team can ride dinosaurs, the other should be able, too.
