    Dynowarz: Destruction of Spondylus– A dreadful NES game. They were robot dinosaurs on another planet, but still.

    Dino Eggs for the Apple II, a game I still very much enjoy.

    Seconding DynoWarz. Which makes me kind of sad that it was my first shot.

    Cadillacs and Dinosaurs. Of course! 🙂

    I had Dino Wars on my TRS-80 when I was a kid! I Never exactly figured out how to play it, but making the dino roar was pretty cool, so I enjoyed it for that.

    3D Dinosaur Adventure for MS-DOS / Win 3.1

    Rampage! Uh, if Lizzie counts as a dinosaur.

    Boy, I haven’t thought about Dino Wars in decades, but it was a fantastic game for its era.

    Zoids Saga for GBA. Also robot dinosaurs on alien planet, different IP to first commenter. :p Great RPG with crossover of characters from every series of the show, plus others. Had a great time with it even though I imported it from Japan and could read almost no text in the whole game.
