I need to ask what started this whole tribal trend in the 90s. What started it? Obviously it was a choice made by suits, but why primitive themes?

JP came out in 1993 and the dino craze started way before. If anything, JP was the peak of the dino craze, not what started it.

well, there was the land before time in late '88.

but at least a couple games still predate that, so interest might have started with japan then caught on worldwide. speculating.

>> No.5802796

Yeah but dinos were already huge in the 80s. Also, while the JP book was a hit, it didn't become big with kids until the 1993 film.
Something funny that someone pointed out on the SMW+Jurassic Park thread the other day is that the JP Book and Super Mario World (and the Super Famicom) came out the same day, september 20 1990, iirc.

Well, the Wonder Boy series went more medieval-fantasy afterwards, while Adventure Island kept the caveman/jungle setting for the most part.

>> No.5807921

Was it really just the 80s/90s or is it just that we think so because we grew up then and witnessed it end at some point in the late 90s?

I mean The Flintstones was already big in the 60s. The caveman thing must've been a pretty popular trope for a long time.

The aesthetic is on point though, enemies on WB/AI1 are pretty ordinary and not really prehistoric or anything too fantastic outside of the bosses, but Adventure Island 2 has the dino buddies.

I was born in 1986 and had had dinosaur bedsheets and toys for longer than I can remember. Like, my parents just bought me a bunch of dino stuff from since I was too young to form memories, it was just a trendy thing to do I'm guessing. I loved all the dino shit too, still think dinos are cool to this day.

Akira Toriyama used a lot of dinosaurs on his mangas throught all the 80s, and part 90s.

Also, Bonk is based on an old japanese manga / anime character called Gyatoruzu.
