    This was a game for the PS2. It was actually one of the only games on PS2 I wanted as a kid (who had a GameCube). And yes it still embarrasses me.

    Look up Lutari Island.

    Also Neopets is dead with only a few thousand active players.

    This. Although if you used home brew I think hypothetically you could play the game via a custom browser+Gnash+ an mouse and keyboard emulator.

    But the issue is I don't believe any of that has been done but it is theoretically possible if you had the time and dev support.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    ho noes.. i forgot to feed my pet since 2009 or something
    now i am too scared to open the website to find a rotten coffin full of bugs

    heh, there was 2 ds games, and i think a psp game as welll
    as for why you couldn't play it on the console interacting with the online game, most likely cuz they didn't want to make such investment and risk..
    it would be cool
    however i thought neopets was dead...

    As a GameCube only guy, I also wanted that game. I guess I'll add it to my current PS2 collection. The little bit that I played of it was pretty decent.
