Q: "game" in 1312 ne anlama geliyor?

Q: "good game" in 1515 ne anlama geliyor?
A: To "talk a good game" means to speak passionately about something almost to the point that it could persuade the listeners to believe what they are saying. It is often used by someone who doubts the genuineness of the person or group speaking. For example " The politicians talked a good game, but they are not doing anything to help us."
Q: We love games and holy smokes do we love dinos. ne anlama geliyor?
A: Yes, that would be fine too. First, "holy smokes!" is a (sort of old fashioned) exclamation that shows the speaker is enthusiastic about something. Here, they're enthusiastic about dinos. It also makes it sound like they love games, but love dinos even more.

Now, the reason the second half of the sentence uses inversion is because of a specific construction in English. It's supposed to emphasize the speaker's opinion by making it sound like a very obvious question. It would be like saying:

"Do I like dinos? Of course I do! Who doesn't?"

The "man, do I love X" construction is really only used in this context. If you really hate something, you can also say "man, do I hate X." It also has a different intonation when you say it. Just remember it adds extra emphasis or enthusiasm.

I hope that helps!
