At least they were, now paleontologists like to think they look like colorful chickens, totally not scary at all! What's up with that? Just because they found a bunch in china with the quill knobs now they assume every damn dinosaur had feathers all over their body. Also, what is up with the lack of dinosaurs in video games these days? Where is the game where you can control a dino and wreak havoc on humans? That would be tubular, right?
Well you are in luck! I just found a neat game that is coming out for PC and all console platforms called Primal Carnage by Lukewarm Media. It seems to be at the momment multiplayer focused where you can play either on two teams, dinosaurs or mercs. The dinosaurs you can play are the Velcoraptor, Compsognathus (AKA compy, little dinosaurs), Pteranodon (flying reptile), and T-Rex. Yes, you heard right, you can play as T-rex! Merc's on the otherhand, I do not know much about them and what they can do other than being able to use weapons and drive vehicles. I'm sure as time goes on they will add more dinosaurs to the roster. A game worthy to check out!
