a jurassic park game where you “build your own park” and you think the game is about building the best park with the most amount of dinosaurs and everything is running well and it goes from cloning the dinosaur all the way to putting them in the right paddock
then when you’ve finished and the credits roll the screen goes black and it starts blaring an alarm and all the dinosaurs escape and now you’re playing a first person POV-game escaping from all the dinosaurs you helped create which means the better you were at the first half the more trouble you’re in for the second
Good news kids, this game is (Mostly) a thing! It’s called Jurassic Park Operation: Genesis. You pick an island, what dinosaur DNA to dig for and build your park from the ground up. Then you can plot vehicle tours through the paddocks (Which you can personally take control of. Default mode lets you take pictures for bonuses but there’s also a code that lets you shoot bullets instead of film! Any big carnivores in the area will also gun for the car and try to smash it up, so have fun!) or fly around in a helicopter shooting sedation darts/bullets at the big scaly birds. Occasionally your park will be hit by storms that knock out the paddock fences and you’re forced to scramble in order to keep your visitors alive.
Despite being released back in ‘03 Genesis is still a very solid game and even has a dedicated modding community for the PC version that has released numerous files for AI/texture improvement, additional dino species and new missions. Sadly copies of the game are something of a bitch to find and usually go for $50-$100 on eBay depending on the system. If you can get a hold of one though I highly recommend it!

Can we talk about Spy Kids 3 for a second because it’s just the MOST BAFFLING CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE EVER
First we open to LITTLE BABY SELENA GOMEZ
THE PRESIDENT IS GEORGE CLOONEY?
Later we see Juni’s grandpa who is KHAN??
who spends the whole movie chasing a butterfly
THE VILLAIN IS SYLVESTER STALLONE
WHO GETS VILLAIN ADVICE FROM THREE OTHER SYLVESTER STALLONES
ELIJAH WOOD SHOWS UP
ONLY TO DIE IN THE NEXT SCENE
Then we find out that the president was actually the villain the whole time which makes ZERO SENSE but leads to this glorious George Clooney Sylvester Stallone impression
Then we get Antonio Benderez doing this?
AND THEIR UNCLE WHO IS STILL MACHETE
AND THEN STEVE BUSCEMI SHOWS UP ON A FLYING PIG FOR NO REASON
HOW WAS THIS A MOVIE???
In fact, the only things in the flat Crowley devoted any personal attention to were the houseplants. They were huge, and green, and glorious, with shiny, healthy, lustrous leaves.
This was because, once a week, Crowley went around the flat with a green plastic plant mister spraying the leaves, and talking to the plants….
Although talking is perhaps the wrong word for what Crowley did.
What he did was put the fear of God into them.
More precisely, the fear of Crowley.
In addition to which, every couple of months Crowley would pick out a plant that was growing too slowly, or succumbing to leaf-wilt, or browning, or just didn’t look quite as good as the others, and he would carry it around to all the plants. “Say goodbye to your friend,” he’d say to them. “He just couldn’t cut it…”
Then he would leave the flat with the offending plant, and return an hour or so later with a large empty flower pot, which he would leave somewhere conspicuously around the flat.
The plants were the most luxurious, verdant, and beautiful in London. Also the most terrified.
