General Tamagotchi Discussion Topic
I'm a big fan of Bandai's virtual pets, so both Digimon and Tamagotchi are important to me. I wasn't quite attentive enough as a child to have any of the original Tamagotchi releases, but when Tamagotchi Connection came out, that was my jam! My younger brother and my neighbor both got them, and the inferred connection was thrilling, like the classic Mystery Gift in Pokemon Gold, Silver, and Crystal. Admittedly, I fell out of the franchise with the release of Tamagotchi Connection Gen 4, because I wasn't as excited with Tamagotchi going in a direction focused on Tamagotchi having careers or raising a whole family: I just like the basic mechanics of the games.
In the United States, we don't get as much Tamagotchi content these days. At Toys R Us locations, and exclusively online at some local retailers, an English version of the 20th Anniversary Tamagotchi was released for sale. It's a Tamagotchi Mini, so all you do is feed your Tama, clean up it's messes, and turn off the light when it goes to bed. But that's more than enough for me to be happy to have it in my life again.
There is also the My Tamagotchi Forever app, but I haven't played it yet. It looks really cute, but I still miss Tamagotchi Tap n Hatch.
Anyone else want to share their thoughts on Tamagotchi?
