I never had an original Tamagotchi but I heard that they have one simple game that wasn't very long, so anybody who is busy can finish a game very quickly.
My v1 has two games- dance and jump, and if you complete the very minimum you need to do to lose the maximum amount of weight for that game (2g for dance, 3g for jump) it only takes around 30 seconds.
My v4 has five games, and even the shortest game, Shape, takes one and a half minutes. How on Earth does Bandai expect anybody to exercise their Tamagotchi at this rate? Remember that you need to complete a game to lose the maximum amount of weight. This absolutely frustrates me.
As everybody is saying Tamagotchi is a virtual pet to raise. This is supposed to be what a Tamagotchi is about! While on the commercials they are like, "New games!!! New careers!!!" And my least favourite of all, on the v4 package: "Now includes 20 games!!!!" I'm glad to hear that the v5/Famitama has four games this time and not a ridiculously large amount. Looks like they're cutting back and making the v5 more to do with the concept of raising something- even if it's an entire family.
Maybe the v4 was like the end of the "overloaded with too many games and functions that weren't properly explained in the manual" and the beginning of Bandai starting to think "maybe we should put less games on the Tamagotchi because it is a virtual pet." So maybe it was like the end and the beginning.

I think the v5 is good, but you should be able to name your tamas! It's also quite complicated to use, as it's so different to the other tamas.

I've been thinking about pets getting jobs. Well, come to think of it, dogs can kinda get jobs... police dogs, guide dogs...

I also hate Bandai for making all of these hideous AMerican designs. They are so girly and ugly!!! The Australian ones are gorgeous, lots of bright vibrant colors and such. Many of them could be for a guy or for a girl. I also like the Japanese colors. They are really quirky and cool.

I have a V3 and I get rather bored with it... Can't go to school, work, no jobs, no skill points to earn, harder to earn GPs, and the games are not too fun...but that's just me.

now i'm torn between the two options . sorry .

i'm among those lines :^)
I think that Bandai is making tamagotchi becoming more like just raising a human .Because there new jobs are making it more stressful instead of fun. I loved the v3 because it was just raise your own pet , buy items from the shop, and see what character you get .Now all it is ,is just get skill points and basically choose your own character. I think Bandai should get rid of this job thing and replace it with some thing like wi fi to communicate with more friends, or to expand the number of friends that you can have. Who's with me on this opinon
