Some forum users seemingly don't remember Gielinor was not the original homeland of vast majority of creatures it has now.

Humans came to Gielinor through a portal of some World Gate too. Saradomin was also one of the human alien immigrants. Does Saradomin look like a caveman, apeman or Big Foot? Of course not.

Humans, elves etc who immigrated to Gielinor have long evolved from their primitive forms. It is not surprising dinosaurs have also long evolved when they came to Gielinor. Perhaps dinosaurs actually looked like Godzilla or Rodan back in their original homeland but hey they evolved so they could survive in Gielinor. :D

One can only be described as creatively bankrupt if all he can think of is classical, traditional or old school ideas but nothing else. Fortunately, Jagex is 9000 times more creative than that. :)


Haha that's rights, thats why:

Darkscape
Block N load
FunOrb
8realms
carnage racing
chronicles
War of legends
Runescape idle adventures
Transformers universe
stellar dawn
Herotopia.

Are so successful lmao.

Get real, jagex are sheep, they follow trends even though they are always late to the party.

Jagex music and artist teams do some amazing work, yes the Dinos do look bit cartoonish though and the content is very uncreative and boring.


All biggest game developers and publishers closed many outdated games too. All of them are not creative then.

Oh. You forgot to point out Jagex closed RSC too. :D

Half of these games were shutdown very soon after release, so don't give me what crap.

RSC was shut down because the company isn't loyal to it's long standing customers and gave up trying to maintain the game, it got infested with bots, the game had to shut, they didn't even try to maintain it.


RSC is an old, useless, uncreative and unprofitable dinosaurs so it died.

Other companies did the same thing... like Blizzard turned Titan into Overwatch and made a fortune. Same thing can happen in all game developers, Jagex include.

Since this thread is just about dinosaurs and not what you try to turn it into, I am going to stop right here about Jagex's other games to preserve the integrity of this thread. Bye! :D

so did the dinosaurs have terrible graphics before or after they stepped through the world gate


It is as good as a question as "does the dinosaurs have better graphics than your forum picture" or "does the dinosaurs have better graphics than cartoon bald head, green shirted players with black beards"?

Say what you like but it won't change other players' perception and definitely the fact that Gielinor creatures may not look like what some players think because they have evolved from other planes long ago.

So they evolved to have bad graphics to escape predation by humans so they wouldn't want to be around them. Makes sense.


All living organisms evolve to be fit to survive, not to escape predation. Typically, creatures evolved into colorful ones not to escape predation by humans (or whatever predators) but on the contrary, as a warning sign to the weaker creatures to stay away or be destroyed and consumed. :)

seeing as you are bashing jagex for being technically incorrect, you realise dinosaur means terrible lizard, so your title reads "terrible terrible lizards" which just seems a rather awkward and possibly redundant way of putting it

also, given the dinosaur just means terrible lizard when many dinosaurs arent actually related to lizards, have not jagex used the name more correctly than whoever you seem to think has a monopoly on the world terrible lizard, as jagex's monsters are, in fact, terrible lizards?


I get what you're saying but when using two different languages it's easy to do that when you know one better over the other. In fact it was news to me that the word dinosaur had latin origins at all as I had no idea about that myself.

For example, I ended up explaining to someone a bit about mermaids in Irish mythology because they were confusing a certain Danish tale as being Irish in origins a few days ago (which is probably why I confused minnow for merrow AKA. murúch the other day when talking to someone else about the deep sea fishing hub and how to catch manta rays).

In English it's simply mermaid. However, in Irish, it's maighdean mhara which literally directly translates as sea maiden and for the male version it's coomara which directly translates as sea hound or murúch fir (mermaid man) for a direct comparison. In regards to Irish mythology they, supposedly, have a cochaillín draíochta which again directly translates to little magic hood.

In short direct translations will melt your head, especially older languages because they don't exactly directly translate very well to English. Tá sé an deacair na teangacha Ceilteach a thuiscint (it is difficult to understand the Celtic languages), for example.


In Gielinor Mermaids are relatives to Sirens, but not in the real world. Shhhh!!! Inb4 somebody brings up terrible mermaids/sirens. :D
