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

1) I agree that the v.3 was probably the best tamagotchi ever. (It was my first tamagotchi, and I miss it so badly...) It was very relaxed and insanely fun, and connecting/getting friends/marrying was one of the main focuses.
2) The v.4 (which I'm currently opperating now) is also quite fun, even if getting a job/going to school is a little stressful. It added another point of interest in it for me, but it might not be the same for other tamagotchi collectors.
3) I havn't tried a v.5 yet, but I do think that one is going overboard. It's about raising a family instead of just a pet, and that is an absolutely HUGE change from the recent installments.
Overall, as I said, I am mixed. But I have no problem with the v.4/v4.5 versions.
"SICKO HOW COULD U DISLIKE A V5 THEY ROCK SO INSTEAD OF DISS'N ALL OF THE REST OF US FIND SOME GOOD REASONS!!!!!!!!!!
POO TO U"
Muffy_1234, there is no need to get rude about it, it is one persons opinion, you have your own. If there isn't something nice to say, you should probably keep it to yourself, rather than do that.

I liked the idea of the V1-3 best of all, you know, just having to take care of your tama, love it and that would be enough to get different characters- and also more difficult. especially the higher amount of different characters in the v3 was good. but v4 and up, it's just about skill points, if you don't count universal characters. the jobs and such are a bit too much too, i mean really, since when do pets get human jobs? sure, like someone said, dogs can have jobs, but not human jobs like working at a bakery or bank or something. also, the money thing annoys me a bit too. pets don't have money, do they? of course the GPs make tamas more interesting, so all in all it's not so bad, but I think I'd still prefer a tama without money. and yes- the amount, and especially the length of games is pretty ridiculous.
so maybe my ideal tama would be something like the V1, but with many more characters, and maybe GPs. Getting different characters should only be done by how you take care of your tama, and their different traits and personalities should only be shown by how they look, and what they do. (so for example, how different tamas react to items- one could be scared of a teddy bear, another attack it, and a third cuddle it.) There could be lots of games, but they should be of different durations. the shorter ones in the beginning of the list, for if you're in a hurry, and longer ones lower down. The amount of weight loss should depend on not just the duration of the game, whether you complete it or not, but also on what the game is like. for example, a game where you have to think, like something like Shape, would increase happiness by, say two, but you only lose 1g of weight if you win it, and jump rope would make the tame lose 3.
wow, that's quite long. sorry guys!

You know, the other day I timed how long it takes to play the v4 games. I wasn't really that happy with the results. This is about how long it takes to play (not exact):
Jumping Rope: 1min 50sec
Shape: 1min 30sec
Dance: 2min 30sec
Flag: 1min 40sec
Which I believe makes an average of 2min 6sec per game. Let me double check *gets a calculator and punches in numbers madly* Yes, I'm right. Seriously, games shouldn't take so long to complete. This is why Shape is so popular with everyone I know who has a v4. Therefore they either get universal characters, or high-intelligence characters (like Mametchi, Mimitchi, Ponitchi, Tosakatchi, Minotchi and Pukatchi).
I want to be able to finish a game on the v4 because of the rule that if you don't your characters don't lose 3g of weight. On the v1 it only took about 30 seconds to lose 3g of weight!

The screen is also a little hard to see sometimes.
Maybe after I visit the planet(on my way now)and have played awhile longer I may feel more favorable towards the 5th one.

Also, is it just me or are the amounts of points very small for the effort?
You get 100 to 500 with the earlier games but this one you get 10, 50 or 70 points and the prizes still cost lots of points.
Not excited with the new version.

right now I only have my v3 going, because of the reasons I stated in my previous post.
I personally don't like the 'controlling a little person' idea. Tamas were originally meant as pets, and I think that that's what they should always be.

If you don't have a friend to lend you one, or they won't let you... then I dunno. what do you like about the famitama, from what you've heard, what don't you like? Try weighing the two up, and see if it'd be worth it.
if you really can't decide, wait for a bit, see what more people say about them, and see if they get any cheaper. In germany, (that's where I live) after about... half a year tops, the price drops by about 5 euros.
