Will we be able to play as Dinosaurs in this game like the T-Rex?

  • The dinosaurs are just as afraid of you as you are of them, you could spend most of your time running away from the humans.

  • @Sadonicus said: No, its just anticlimatic, would be a complete break with the human based story and kinda stupid also!

    That was the best part about the previous JP games. Being the humans was boring and stupid. Being the dinos was the most fun I'd ever had.

    Then you're simply not a fan!

  • But the thing is that Telltale's biggest selling point is their dialogue, plain and simple. Jurassic Park probably won't be as comedy-oriented as Sam and Max, but dialogue will still be a big focus. You want to hear what all the characters have to say, and since the playable character is the one you'll spend the most time around, you especially have to make sure he (or she) is interesting.

    Sam has fun things to say. Strong Bad has fun things to say. Wallace has fun things to say. Guybrush Threepwood has fun things to say. Marty McFly has fun things to say. A Velociraptor...not so much.

    The only way I can possibly even conceive it working is if there's another character around the dino at all times to fill in the dialogue void left by playing as a silent character. And I have a hard time thinking of somebody staying around a dinosaur so long without being eaten. ;)

    I'm a fan of Dinos and the movies. Playing as humans in a game is boring for me, especially when Dinos are an option.

    Then that really limits the amount of games you enjoy. lol

  • No, I just enjoy non-humans especially when there's a choice (or should be) for others. Like WarHammer? I play rat people and Or(c/k)s. Mario party based games, usually DK, Yoshi, or Luigi[he's too awesome]. In Disgea my field was mostly Prinnys. All I said is I find them boring, I'm not going to play a game just because it's humans only. HL was good. It would've been bad as an alien because that makes no sense. JP as a Dino makes sense as previous games in the past have done it, and they were always the best parts.

    Previous games were simple sidescrollers without story, playing them as humans or dinos is not that of a difference. This is game will be story based and more complex with heavy focus on atmosphere of tension and fear. Playing that as a dino just dont make sense, its a complete other feel and it wouldnt have story or dialogue (listening to humans here and there dont count). So no, there wont be playable dinosaurs in it. But it would be a good idea for an other game!

  • Except, you know, you can just do a subtitled game as the dinos? Because in the movies they mentioned the dinos communicating with each other. And it doesn't have to be a full blown out game or anything like that. Just playing as the dinos as a bonus mission or something like that is all I'm saying. Flat out denying the rights of dinos for "story" purposes is pretty stupid, in my oppinion. Also, who says this game will be fear based? Last I hear nothing was announced on this game. For all we know it could be a side scroller where you're Ronald McDonald looking for the Fry Children on the island and Grimmace went crazy from the Hambugler's mind tricks and is now riding some velociraptors trying to capture Ronald so the Hambugler can get Ronald's recipe. With brightly colored and over excentric backgrounds and such.
    Also Ronald McDonald's only weapon is a rainbow colored glow stick in which he must cause the dinos to get into a trance and have them dance themselves untill they're too tired to be a wake and moonwalk past them.

    Uhmm, no? Jurassic park is nothing but survival, what else should it be? They already said there will be tension elements. Tension + dinos = fear!
