    Tamagotchi was the first ones to do this sort of thing. So nintendogs is a rip off from tamagotchi.

    they started off with this thing here years ago [​IMG]

    Yeah, i had the yellow and orange back in the day... I remember the rush of everyone getting them from toys are us and no one managing to get em for ages!

    What a genius craze.

    Hah, I had the same color. I remember my sister bought one for my because she didn't want to play by herself. And I sucked at tamagotchi. My guy died all the time.

    And I don't mind them having infrared and stuff (the more features the merrier), just as long as the pets remain cute - but these "animals" are pretty ugly if you ask me [​IMG] Wonder why they're so popular...

    I remember one classmate when I was in 4th grade or so.. (ten-eleven years ago?). He was really serious about his Tamagotchi and had raised it for several months. But one day, my best friend at the time, let's call him Fred, pressed the RESET button on the back of the tamagotchi.... can you imagine the evilness? The classmate of course started crying and despair since his precious 'pet' was dead and gone forevermore...

    Okay, so the act of my friend resetting his pet... (which I didn't know you could do at the time) was really evil and mean... but to start crying over a digital pet - in the manner this classmate did - is not a sign of a good mental state either. [​IMG]

    I hope the two of them are doing well today... lol

    Hahaha. I just bought a Version 4 Tamagotchi, keeping in touch with my youth. Its quite crazy on how much its changed, kind of. Making babies with other tama's and going on the internet to get points etc etc.

    They have now invented the best thing for it - a pause button.
