It's Turok 3! Not very many dinosaurs in this game though, mostly just weird mutants and monsters. nfq blows through the game with multiple sequence breaks and kills several bosses very swiftly.
The author has made a series of youtube encodes with annotated commentary available in the submission comments.

- Genre: RPG
The original Phantasy Star is one of the pioneers of console RPGs, featuring fully traversible overworld maps, random enemy encounters, and turn-based battles. It was also one of the first games to feature a female protagonist.

One peaceful day in Algol, the benevolent King Lassic decides to convert to a new religion. Unfortunately, this new faith turns him into a cruel dictator who silences all who go against him. When Alis' brother tries to rebel, he is killed by Lassic's robot-cops. After seeing this, Alis sets out to stop him, not only to get revenge, but also to liberate the people from the King's oppressive rule.
