I still love my v1, and have it running right now. The only Tama I've stopped raising is the v5.
Yeah, there adding all this new stuff to keep it fresh, and not boring. EX: would you still play a v1 6 (counting the .5) versions later? or would you just stop buying the tamagotchis all together out of boredom?
I was going to e-mail them a suggestion, but they sent back saying, "Thank you, but Bandai doesn;t accept suggestions or ideas for toys from the public."
Urrr... Bandai. : (
I commend the v5 for being somewhat different, though. I jsut wish that they'd fix some of the bugs with the v1-v4.5. Like the screen size, sounds, and add a variety of characters that don't depend on gender or points. Still, the v2 and v3 are my favorite!

The point of the Tamagotchi is to care for the creature(s) in it. The jobs, events, items, etc. are there to make it a lot more interesting so you don't get bored waiting for it/them to grow. That's the fun of it.

I currently own 2 V2s, a V3 and a V4. The new V5s just don't appeal to me.
I remember how excited I was when I bought my first tamagotchi, a midnight blue V2, back in December 2005. The main objective is of course caring for the tama, giving it lots of love, and see what character it evolves into. I absolutely love the thrill of guessing which character my tama will become next.
The V3s are just as good as the V2s, but with some new items, food and characters. Although I still prefer the V2 characters more. But besides that, they are equally brilliant.
When it comes to the V4s, I gotta say that the whole skill point system makes the evolution surprises fade, as you can tell exactly what character the tama will evolve into simply by looking at the skill points, its gender and following an evolution chart. Another drawback is the mail feature, which resulted in me having to check my tama a lot more often. The games take a while to play as well. As with the school and job feature, in my opinion, has gone a tad too far from the original concept of a tamagotchi. As a first year university student, I simply do not have the time to gain enough skill points. Sometimes my tama just passes on without getting a job.
The V5s? Well, I think I am going to give them a pass. The designs for the V5 are just ridiculous I think (although other may find them awesome). What happened to the simple and innovative egg-shaped tama that we all love? I wouldn't want a key dangling from my tama thanks.
My V2 tama Sammy is singing as I write this. Aww....so cute. After all these years, my first tama is still my favourite. I love it simply because it possesses the features that makes a tamagotchi something to be loved, a virtual pet without the nuisance found in the V4 versions and beyond.

As for the V5's I also agree they don't suck,but their boring.I'm not looking forward to the V5.5;I'll probably just try to look for a V4 or V3.

I don't mind the v5's. Theres nothing to stop people from playing the v1.

The V5.5 will NOT be featuring the return of jobs.
The characters, games, and items are just based around a royal and celebrity theme.
In other words, they're exactly the same as the V5, though with minor differences.
That's all. No need to have a fuss over nothing.

ok..you got very confusing then!
Personally I think that is cool that the v5 can get a family and if Bandai does make tham be in like royal, sport, etc. catorgarized then so be it
Thats really cool that they made them have pets of their own! I mean if you are playing with your tamagotchi pet then wouldn't you love to play with your tamagotchi pet while its playing with its own pet COOLIO!!

I grew up on the p1 and p2's, and when I got my first v4, I was blown away with the amount of stuff and characters you could access. The website is fun, I love giving presents, the career aspect is cool, and the data link feature is awesome.
The v5's seem easier, but I like the personal level of custimization you can achieve on the 4 and 4.5. I just wish the v4/4.5's had the wider screen like the v5's, I love that huge spacious screen.
