What was your favorite JP games?
I liked the NES one the best, followed by the SNES one that was similar to it (but not as fun imo) and the first Genesis game (great atmosphere and graphics).
Never cared much for the other ones honestly. I wish the franchise was handled to some japanese developer, imagine a JP game by Capcom during the 16 bit era.
Of course I'm ruling out the arcade Sega light gun game, that's probably the objective best one but it never got a home port.

The Lost World on the Genesis.

>imagine a JP game by Capcom during the 16 bit era
Fuck no, it would turn out to be just another generic platformer game.

Hm, weird opinion. I would have killed for the Genesis game to have actual good controls and level design. Oh well.
Lost World on Genesis has impressive effects but very abysmal game design. I don't like using the term "tech demo" but in this case it really feels like one.

>> No.6588790

>abysmal game design
If you hate semi open world exploration, sure. I love it and for me it's more fun than the NES/SNES/GB top down games. The quests were interesting too.

>> No.6588816

I don't hate that, but the game was very empty and had sluggish controls, and barely any actual action.
The gimmick stages were more memorable honestly.

There's the Master System/Game Gear game you know...

>the game was very empty
>barely any actual action
Did you forget to open the map and wander around directionlessly or something? Also that's just how a Jurassic Park game should be, a focus on island exploration rather than nonstop action.
>sluggish controls
Seems normal and very functional to me. Sure it's a bit hard to strafe and shoot using the Genesis gamepad, but it's fun.
>gimmick stages
Best gimmick stages I've ever played in a video game.

>What was your favorite JP games
Easily pic related. Spent a bunch of money at the local showbiz(might of switched to chuckEcheese by then can't remember) with a buddy to final beat it. What a ride. Also had the JP game on Genesis. Playing as Grant was fine but playing as the Raptor was so awesome at the time. Never played any other jp games but from what I've heard I'm not missing much.

>> No.6592391

The side scroller/platforming genesis games were almost as good as you could get for Jurassic park games. The controls in the first one were like you were on roller skates often, but it had the atmosphere locked down and rampage edition is like the same version on crack and dr grant is pissed off.

>> No.6592443

I wish there was a better park builder for it, or just for dinos in general tbqh. Neither Genesis nor World now really scratched that itch for me.

>> No.6592451

what didn't you like about OG and Evolution?

>> No.6592458

Warpath. I love that scientifically outdated game like you wouldn't believe.

>> No.6592508

I think neither does the detailing bit too well where you can just make your park yours. I was hoping Evolution would add to it given what Planet Coaster was, or Planet Zoo is now. Also just the relatively limited spaces vs a more open thing. It all felt really cramped. Well that and as I recall carnivores just murder eachother regardless of anything. But that's another thing.
I think building variety was also kinda low in either so it all ends up looking pretty samey in the end.

Dunno, as far as I know Evolution was a pretty good redo of OG, but I guess the games just aren't what I hoped they would be. You know making big enclosures and a long ride like what I imagined the original JP was meant to be.

The first Mega Drive JP is the only one that’s actually any fun to play. Especially as the raptor. It’s also the first game based Doug TenNepal worked on.

Game Gear never got an Alex the Kid game, so that can't be right.

Probably played the nes one the most, followed by both Genesis ones and the Game Gear one. Loved all of them. Also had the Sega CD point and click game and loved it, even though I never got very far as a kid. It just had this cool lonely atmosphere. I still throw it on every once in a while.

>> No.6601391

Genesis is great though, it's just a bit lacking in content. I would love more buildings, terrain generation, expanded safari, and of of course more dinosaur specieses. World is just trash, the AI is literally dumber than OG.

When I was a kid, I'd grab my dad's Roland TR-505 and pretend it was a Jurassic Park computer device that would grant me access to all the security mechanisms in the park. I'd look out the window, and pretend real dinosaurs were out there, as I'd struggle to keep all the security in line by pressing buttons mindlessly.

Ever think about how Sega Master System Jurassic Park was basically the only one with a proper satisfying ending? It even has a separate bad ending if you lose a continue before the final stage, and a credits gag where the dinos take over the staff credits.

Miss the time were every console got it's own version instead of a port
