Before we get started, it’s worth noting that this won’t be a ranked list. We’re going to talk about dinosaur games from across a wide variety of genres and platforms so it’s easier to list them in no particular order.
ARK: SURVIVAL EVOLVED (2015)
We’re kicking things off with one of the most popular dinosaur games out there – ARK: Survival Evolved. If you’re familiar with online open-world survival games you already know what to expect here.
The difference between ARK and other similar MMOs is that this world is inhabited by a wide variety of dinosaurs. Each bigger than the last. And, as you might imagine, most of them aren’t exactly friendly.
PREHISTORIC KINGDOM (2022)
Prehistoric Kingdom is a dinosaur management game inspired by Jurassic Park. You run a zoo for extinct creatures and your job is to make them comfortable by designing appropriate habitats for them.
Although the dinosaurs are the main highlight of Prehistoric Kingdom, you’ll also need to manage a bunch of other types of creatures. These include Woolly Mammoths, Wolly Rhinos, Sabre Tooth Tigers, prehistoric birds, and more.
JURASSIC WORLD EVOLUTION 2 (2021)
Sure, Prehistoric Kingdom is sort of like Jurassic Park but if you’re looking for a game that can give you the quintessential dinosaur theme park experience, this is the one you’ll want. Jurassic World Evolution 2 is the sequel to Frontier Developments’ highly successful dino management sim.
If you’re into Lego games you’ll definitely love this one. Lego Jurassic World is considered one of the best titles in the franchise and it’s easy to see why. The game is primarily based on the Jurassic Park trilogy and lets you relive iconic moments from the movies in a pretty unique way.
