After getting my v4 I am going to re-answer the questions.

1. Care vs. Skill Points

Well, I like being able to sort of decide what character I want my Tamagotchi to be and jobs and whatnot. But it takes away from the real caring thing. I think that might be why they have universal characters. I think care determines what teenager you get, so it does have some sort of care-determined things in there too.

2. Lights vs. Mail

When my baby Shirotsubutchi/Tsubutchi went to sleep, I got freaked out that it just slept and turned the light off! Honestly, I am so used to being able to turn the light off and on so I can watch my Tamagotchi sleep. And you can see if it has poop if it still had the lights function. As well as that, I can put my Tamagotchi to sleep early by turning the light out 30min before its bedtime (e.g. Mimitchi goes to bed at 9pm, I turn out the lights at 8.30pm to make it go to sleep).

I like mail though, because it has plenty of surprises. So yes, hard decision.

3. TamaTown

I like being able to earn Gotchi Points from it. And you don't have to enter separate passwords for parent, grandparent and all that as it is included in your login code. Big improvement over the v3 TamaTown where you can only get souvenirs and buy items. It means there's no limitation to the activities available on Tamagotchi Town v4 since you can just make more, and earn Gotchi Points from all of them. I visit quite frequently to earn some more Gotchi points.

4. Designs

I LOVE the straps! A lot more exciting than the plain keychain that came with my v1 or the too-thick plastic strap that came with my v3. And it makes sense too.

The designs are really nice and the v4 isn't as hard to hold as I thought it would be. I have the blue w/ diamonds one, but I also like the pink TMGC Kuchipatchi one. And the sky one. And the white w/ TMGC bubbles one...

Anyone else feel the v.4 is hard to handle compared to others?

I love my v.3 the v.4's are bulkier and straight up annoying I hate that you go to school and get a job, their supposed to be pets not people...

I say that but I do care for the games, and I like the mail, except the forune doesnt make sense to me and the robber is very annoying. I like the animations for connection with another Jensei but overall I prefer the v.3 ... or even my original 1996 version . :blink: <_<

Well, I find that the v4's antenna is actually easier than the v3s. The v3's antenna is sharper and when I'm holding onto my Tamagotchi v3 upside down it digs into my palm and it HURTS. The v4's ball-like antenna is rather round and smooth so it doesn't hurt as much.

If you're unsure about fortune mail, remember this:

Gotchi Point bag- Wealth
Heart- Relationships
Man showing muscles- Health/strength

I agree that the robber is annoying, but think of this: it's pretty easy to earn Gotchi Points off Tamagotchi Town.

Also if you were strapped for time you might find it hard to play the games or take your Tamagotchi to school or work.

I find that with the v.3 he can be self sufficiant for much longer (unless a baby or with a baby)

I really like the V.3 ... although your right points are much easier to earn because of tamatown... I wish you could earn gotchi points in v.3 tamatown ...

I really also like not having to shut the lights myself ... I had to set my alarm to wake up to shut the lights and go back to bed ... hehe because my V.3 goes to bed at 10! ...and I sleep all the time!

You could turn off the lights earlier, which still allows you to feed and clean up after your Tamagotchi. And if you turn out the lights up to 30min before your Tamagotchi's set bedtime, it will go to bed earlier, one good thing about the lights...

What works better, care or skill points? Why?

On the V4 I think Skill Points are very annoying because they only give you a little bit of points for winning the games and that is the only way you can collect points. On the Entama you could make speical food for that characters group type to help raise skill points. You could also buy speical items to help raise skill points too. Why didn't Bandai come out with that on the V4? As for getting the character you want then yes its useful but annoying on V4.


How do you like the mail system as compared to the lights?

Don't mind the mail system and I don't really miss the lights.

How much do you like the tamatown? What could have been better?

Never have liked TamaTown, at my age I really have no interest in collecting little pixel items. I go to TamaTown to get GP and Shop once in a while but for the most part I pretend that it doesn't exist.

V4 designs or Others

Wasn't a really big fan of the US V4's Designs other then Sunflower and Orange circles. I did buy the Glow in the dark but it has never been opened and I don't plan to. I liked alot of the V3 disigns, only a few of V2 and alot of V1.

Games

Why didn't they just start the games off with the three skill raising games from the get go instead of Rope and Mimic?

Skill points can be very hard to get! So care I think is better.

Well, the lights weren't a MAIN feature of the tamagotchi.

How much do you like the tamatown? What could have been better?
I think that tama town can get a bit boring sometimes, and they need to update more regularly!


Which designs are better? the v4s, or other versions?

I don't pay much attention to the design. :gozarutchi:

They way that you have to collect skill points and find a good job I don't really like I think it is trying to put too much into it and over complicate it. The care system is much better It's sort of taking the point away from the tamas in the first place, the simple caring of the tama is what people like about it. Little things like not being able to turn the light off when the tama goes to sleep is taking away from the originals and it means something to people. Like some people have said it is making the tamas more human than pets.

The town and points system are nice features, being able to earn points from the games and buy items for your tamas. I was dissapointed that tama town is incomplete though! Maybe it should be completed before the v4 was released? I haven't been able to use tama town properly as my tama had a glitch and didn't get any important mail at all! So I can't comment much on it!

The designs are always good! They make you want to collect each of the ones you like! I think that the accessories for the tamas (straps) and things should come with the tamas as you have to buy them separately and they are expensive to buy!

From the connections I have a v1 and a v4 tama. I like that the v4 has lots of new characters, items and games to collect but overall because of the skill point system I would have to say I like my v1 better!

On the subject of designs, the V4 has some good ones. Although, the antenna is kind of annoying and gets in the way when I'm playing with my V4. I like the new designs of the V4, but I like the shape on the V1 and 2 much better because they don't have antennae.

I couldn't agree more. The antenna is cute and all, don't get me wrong, but, i like the idea of the v1 and v2. It is more simple o hav no antenna. But I believe they use the antenna to sybolize the different versons. because the v4.5 will have a star, v4 has a sphere and th v3 is just a plain antenna.

I like V4 but I kind of liked turning out the Tama's lights when it went to bed. I felt as if it needed me more and I liked watching my Tama sleep. It was sweet and cute.

I like the mail but hate fortune cookies. They're annoying.

I feel that the antenna is just ridiculous. And the ball is so ugly. The antenna is too big. I think they should just stick with the V3 antenna design and start printing the version on the front by the Tamagotchi logo. Like after Connection they should have V4 or V3 or V1 or V2 or V4.5, you know whatever version they are doing.

And sometimes I feel this Tamagotchi is just too overloaded. I want a V2 because they have a lot of stuff, but not too much where it's like, "These things are too alive." Cuz I don't like that. I think they should be more pet like. Like the V2.

I completely agree, except not completely about the ball on the antenna. I disliked it at first, but I like how they make it a star on V4.5s. I don't really like the V4's, but I don't really dislike them.

Ugh. The skill points are really annoying! You don't get enough from games and I always seem 2 get too many of the wrong ones so I never get the character I want. And I also can never get enough for a job! :D And I think they need to rely a little more on care. I mean, thats what a Tamagotchi is all about! Care will always win over skills in my mind.


How do you like the mail system as compared to the lights?
The lights were nice. Its really cute to see your Tama sleeping and all. Now its much easier and with all the other things 2 do that's good. And really, the mail is one of the main things about the V4. I like it fine. But I HATE getting poo or a snake in the normal mail. And the fortune cookies are weird and I don't like them much.

How much do you like the tamatown? What could have been better?
TamaTown is really cool. :ph34r: But I will like it WAY more once the new places are there.
EDIT: Oo! I just went to TamaTown and the new places are there! Awsome!

Which designs are better? the v4s, or other versions?
I LOVE the designs! The sunflower is the one I have. And I love the origami, the black with lighting one, and lots of others! I think the V4 designs are some of the very BEST.
:blink: And I think the ball on the antennae is way cute. But the antennae makes Tamas look a bit less like eggs and a bit more like cell phones :D.

And this is how I rate the versions: (BTW I don't have a V1 or V4.5 so...)
1st place: V3
2nd place: V2
Third Place: V4

BTW, the games on V4... I like Shape and Mimic... but the others not so much. Heading on V3 and 2 is great, though.
