I only have a few friends that are humans, so Tamas are really in my best friend list.

Tamagotchis used to feel like my best friends. Well, they were more than just best friends; they were something I felt like I couldn't live without. When I think about it, I realize that I have never thought of them as being alive, yet I never thought of them as just games. It's hard to really explain how they felt. Though, nowadays, I hardly pay attention to my Tamagotchis. On rare occasion, I'll use a few of them, but they mainly just feel like collectibles to me now.

Companion. Sometimes I just sit on my cozy chair and play games in my Tama-Go.

I agree. Unlike most of the people here,I actually prefer my real pets and friends to my tamas. Sure,I take care of them and play with them,but that doesn't mean that I can't take care of my real pets and hang out with my real friends too.

^ That. I think of them like... Like my Pokemon, I care about them like they're more than just pixels, but I don't see them as friends or anything.

my tamas are my friends, i love nuturing them and seeing them grow and they r more portable than my dog, cat or bearded dragon :-) . eep them under my jumper so that they are always safe, warm and dry, and i like to think that they have induvidual personalites, like i also do with my fave pokemon. normallyn i wouldnt admit this but this IS a site 4 tama lovers, so... :huh:

although people who runn more than 5 tamas at once must b very busy and get bleeped at a lot, my v5 and v6 r needy enough!

Tamagotchis are the only way me and my brother can play together without a fight.

I see them as,well,A friend,But not so much a friend...You know? I am eightand have grown out of them.I know.But as long as my brother is happy,I have a tama.Now I see them as,well,a computer,But a smart,fun one at that.I do not hate them or love them.Yes,I do sneak them places.Tamagotchi are becoming boring to me.But I guess they are just a weeny bit of a friend.Some one who will stay up all night,and Help you raid the kitchen.

Over all,I see them as computers,but lovable ones at that. :blink:

To be honest, I see them as a pets & friends as they are dependent plus fun to have around.
When I was about 11 I read a book about a boy that finds a cyberpet that actually talks to him & eventually befriends him.
It was a very nice read & a lovely little story aswell, further fuelling my passion for them.
I'm 20, with plenty of friends, even a boyfriend (who doesnt understand my facination).. So i'd say calling them 'friends' isn't necessarily bad.

Any love I had for Tamas was pushed and pulled and crushed and forced out of me in the past few years. I am told countless times that they are pixels, little dots on a screen, and I open them up and see the circuits and debugged them and so many times I have looked at the screen and seen the word "pause". So many times have my family told me my beloved pet is pixels, it's like the half of me that dislikes Tamas is chanting "pixels, pixels, your pet is pixels" inside my head. Then I go out and swim with wild dolphins, and I see the wonder and grace and the mere life in those amazing creatures. When I get back to the car, I look at my Tama. My dad explains to me how the LCD screen works, and that my character is just little bits of some sort of crystal or plastic turning round and round. They don't have a personality. They're just things, little pieces of plastic to me, and the chanting voices in my head won't ever go away. It's all my parents' fault. I can't explain it to them, they don't want me to be friends with my Tamas. They'll do everything they can to stop me.

I am almost 22 and once they were first released, I loved them, it's like a part of me now ^^
I have great real friends, they never told me it was stupid playing with them, they never mocked me because of my huge collection of tamas. If they did I wouldn't care xD

My tamas always had a special place in my heart, especially now that I'm sick for about 2 years... It may sound stupid but when I'm playing with them I don't feel sick anymore, it's like I escape from real life, and it feels good, when real life is not nice with ya.

Don't listen to the others when they say you are too old to play with that. You enjoy it, and you feel happy having lots of them, that's all that matters. :wub:

Frankly I'd rather hang around my pets than I would most people. That includes both the electronic and flesh and blood varieties. Oh and PinkPenguin, you are so lucky to have a bearded dragon. I love lizards! I miss my iguanas so badly sometimes. I wish someone would make a lizard VPet.

I never really feel sad when my Tamas die. Not because I don't care about them but because death isn't permanent for Tamagotchis. Bringing a dead Tama back is a simple matter.

I definitely bond and care for them as if they were my "own", if you will. I don't have children, but I do have a cat, and I take care of my Tama(s) just as I do for my friends, and my cat.

I love them so much, and they keep me company as well as they are kind and loving towards me. Even if they do somehow act like little brats during their baby stages and such, hahah :)

People have always made fun of me for it, but I absolutely love my Tama(s) :) <3
