My second post here on the forums. I want to thank the person (I'm sorry I forgot your username!) for answering my question regarding the different games in V4. I just wanted to share some of my thoughts and feelings on Tamagotchi here with other Tamagotchi lovers.
I got my very first Tama back in 98, it was a yellow P1 with purple trim and buttons. I later went on to collect many more Tamas, all P2s and eventually a blue Angelgotch. During those times as a caretaker I always felt a special connection to Tamas. Logically I knew they were little electronic toys but...a huge part of me regarded them as something more. They were with me through so many times..be they good or bad. The excitement of them growing up and changing and the sadness of their departure.
I am in my mid 20s now and with the acquiring of a V4 (from eBay) I find all of those old feelings back and renewed. I care for this lil guy as I did my older Tamas. He's always at my side. Whether it be sitting on my laptop as I play World of Warcraft, or on my knee when watching a movie or TV. My partner is very understanding to my caretaking and does not make fun of or belittle me for it in any way. He even asissted me in finding the perfect Tama.
As I had stated in my first post I have been a long time fan of mimitchi.com and always came away from my visits with such a positive feeling because I knew there was at least someone out there over the "recommend" age of Tamagotchi who felt as strongly as the little guys as I did and do. Thank you so much Mimitchi for your services to the Tamagotchi community. I know they aren;t exactly the "in thing" now, but I know many Tama lovers and caretakers still exist. That is why I decided to sign up with this wonderful forum to share my ideas and experiences with my Tamagotchi.
And I apologize ahead of time..I can be a bit long winded at times. I just wanted to share some of my thoughts and feelings about Tamagotchi with you all. ^_^
