What are your thoughts on the 2011 Telltale Games title? Love or hate? Do you consider it canon within the films?

I remember reading that JPL was used as a reference to help make this game, but Jurassic World came along and rendered it non-canon, or at least semi-canon. I just wish that Telltale had made a solid disk version instead of making it downloadable only.

What? It was available on disc. That's how I played it.

It was? Because I have a PS3 and I never saw a disk version at the store I work at.

From what I understand JW didn't render it noncanon nor confirm it. They kind of just skirted around it like they did with TLW and JP3 (obviously they're going to confront those movies in Fallen Kingdom, but still). The only thing that might be a problem with JPTG being canon is that Yoder (I believe that was his name?) ordered the military to blow up Nublar. Of course he dies and perhaps the order never goes through since he doesn't give confirmation that he escaped.

I honestly liked JPTG a lot; it was a good story and while it lacked the pseudo choices that other Telltale games give you, I felt it created a believable expansion to the JP franchise. Plus, I loved the troodons.

I remember Ty saying that JW altered things so much that the game isn't canon anymore. In any case, Costa Rica doesn't have any weapons to bombard Nublar and it doesn't have much of a navy so having them blowing up Nublar wasn't possible from the get go.
