When you were younger, what stuff did you do to Tamas that you regret now?

I got my first tama when i was 6... It was a V4 and i kept getting Gozurachis (if they didn't die before they became an adult) and i had no idea how to pause it so i just left it on for days without taking care of it :P

A long time ago, when my sis got a v4.5, we left it on the table for some time & no one took care of it. So one day I looked at it, it was a Kuribotchi with 10 poops beside it and it was sick. I didn't know what to do, so I left it there and didn't tell anyone -_-

...that night it died

Poor, poor Kuribotchi

Great Post Dazzilitchi.

 

Here's mine: This one is pretty bad..I noticed that no one ever brings this up anymore, but it's a trick that i know works on the v2-3 at least. It's kind of dark because of the act and purpose. If you abuse your tama (unnecessary time-outs) like 5 times and enter them in a game of 'Bump', they are WAY more likely to win the 4 first rounds at least. It's kind of a dark feature they put in these versions..part of me feels like it may not be true(since it's been so long), but i do remember how shocked i was at how it worked.

 

For those who didn't know that..now you do and it's up to you to NOT DO IT.

To abuse your tama for bigger prize money is no different than those fools who train pitbulls for fighting, and i choose not to be like that, so i stopped years and years ago, 7 to be exact.

 

Sometimes my toddlers make it up to round 5 naturally. Was there ever a need for that??

My kuromametchi in my TMGCC lived on Mcdonald hamburgers his whole life. He snacked a lot on alcohol as an adult too. I regret nothing.

 

That made me smile xD

He had such a great life !

Debugging my V4, then giving it to my friend ended in humorous, but somewhat regretful results. In the end, he called Tamagotchis, "Overglorified Asian toilet humor."

Maybe I should've given it to him without debugging it?

Ugh. When I was 4, I dropped my very first Tama, a V2, on the floor and accidentally ran it over with a chair. A GIANT black smudge of black pixels ensued. Took it back to Toys R' Us and got a new one. Poor boy was only a child when he "died." :(

When I was 7, I lost my replacement V2 for a week. When I found her again, she had grown into a Pyonchitchi, with literally 13 piles of poo next to her and she was sick. Thankfully, I had saved her in time, and she had a child. ^^

She's 99 pounds now, as well as a Bunbuntchi I have on the V3.

Yes, she's still alive, despite the fact that the accident was 6 years ago. I spam the crud outta that Pause button.

I forced my Mamekatchi, Chamametchi, and Shelltchi to become time travelers on V5. Heaven knows how old they're supposed to be now. I did it... FOR BONDING.

:wacko:

I don't think time traveling hurts them. I did the same thing to increase the bonding level and I'll do it again when they reach their next generation and I have to start all over. It's not really cruel. It's certainly not near as bad as killing or torturing them for fun.

Well, with the time travelling, it takes longer for them to grow. Oh, and I made two adults fall in love with a teen.

Really? There's actually a way to win Bump? I've never got past round 2 :P . I'm going to try that out, it's not really that bad, Tamas are only pixels anyway.

 

That's another thing I've done and still do...if there's a cheat and I have the version of Tama it can be used on, I'll always try it. I don't really see killing/neglecting Tamas as cruel anymore, I'd never harm the physical toy but I don't mind doing stuff to the pixel characters. And it's not 2011 any more so I don't have to pay any attention to that random thing I said. :P

I think my biggest regret is not getting into them when they first came out and selling the few I did have. I think it would have been cool to start collecting in 97 and keep right on collecting through the Connection, IDL, Ps and Tamago Eras. I really envy people who have massive Tama collections. I need a time machine. Then again I found out about Giga Pets first. If I'd bought one of those first I may not be into handheld pets at all. I never much liked the Giga Pets I had. Fortunately  while I heard of Gigas first my first actual purchase was a Tamagotchi. Best. Pet. Ever.

Well, a few years back, I learned about debugging. I tried debugging my first V3 and broke the sound on it. I then tried debugging my first Tama, the V4. Ended up losing all the screws to the v4, although, it still works. I also lost the IR cover thing that was on my first V6. So, I have a history of accidentally killing Tamas. :b

I wasn't that bad, but when I was little, I went to this shop and I dropped it on accident, and when I  went to pick it up, my brother barfed on it. :o -_-

One of my Tamas had overly sensitive buttons, so I took it apart as well as a v4 and switched their buttons around. After that, both versions worked perfectly, so I guess it's not really cruelty (except for the fact that the reset screen comes up when I try to connect). I also made my Tama-Go character weigh 99 pounds on purpose, but I was just experimenting. It turned out that when that happens, the Tamas get really fat and can't do anything until they die.

If your Tama gets fat, you just take it to the doctor and it makes a bunch of poop, you're not supposed to wait till it dies! xD Sorry, I find that funny..... xDDDD

I'll admit, I was an awful Tama owner back when the originals came out. I was young and, after I was tired of taking care of them, my brother and I would have contests/experiments trying to kill them. We'd starve them, constantly punish them for no reason, overfeed characters to 99 lbs, never clean up their poo, neglect characters we hated, and then record how they "reacted" to being tortured in said ways. Not sure why we were so cruel to them...I guess once we were tired of actualy playing with them properly, we found new ways to amuse ourselves. At least we never actually destroyed the toys.

 

I haven't tortured Tamas since then, though. I know they're just pixels, but I get attached to them. Even if it's a character I don't like, I feel bad neglecting them, let alone deliberately torturing them. At least my new Tamas never had to suffer the way my old ones did. XD

I had a nano when they first came out. It was a kitty & I loved it but then when my real life pet cat died I was so upset that I threw my nano out. I really wish I didn't do that. :'(

Put a chewed bubble gum into my only tama at that time, a fake V1, because I'd lost the battery cover and the battery would always fall off. Dumb me  :lol:
