The people who enjoy them obviously haven't ever played with a color tamagotchi.
I'm sorry but you are mistaken, I love my 2 Tama-Go's and I'm currently running 2 color tamagotchis. You shouldn't just assume that anyone who enjoys Tama-Go's have never played with any color versions.

It's sort of rude to make an assumption like that. Just because you like color tamas and not the tama-go doesn't automatically mean that everyone who likes it only likes it because they never played a color tama. I just got my first color tama today and yes it is very cool and more advanced than a tama-go but i still like my tama-go. Just because there is a more advanced version doesn't mean the tama-go is no good. As the current newest english tama it is very nice. It features great characters and fun games especially if you get the figures.
Save yourself the frustration. Don't buy a tama-go. I happen to have one, and although some of the backgrounds are fun, you should invest your money elsewhere. Really. I bought myself an iD-L last october and I love it. They are a bit pricey though. But in my opinion it was worth it. Plus, I don't know a word of Japanese and I could still figure it out. Tama-Zone has a pretty good guide for them if you can find it. But definitely, do not get a tama-go. The people who enjoy them obviously haven't ever played with a color tamagotchi.
You're entitled to your opinion of course but try not to make generalizing statements like that as they will probably turn out wrong and might offend some people.

I just feel like the Tama-Go lacks portability where other Tamas have fit the bill perfectly. When I carry a Tama-Go around, I also need to carry the figures, and that plastic chain thingy is so flimsy, and the whole unit is just so bulky... the original concept of the Tamagotchi being a keychain was to encourage Tama owners to take them along with them wherever they went. The Tama-Go completely defeats that purpose.
I also dislike the lack of a color screen and the screen having no backdrop design. I know this is to allow the whole toned-pixel effect and the "housing" in the background but it still just doesn't sit right with me. The whole design just screams 'we're desperate to make something so new and different that it will catch a whole new wave of fans that will carry the legacy on through a whole new generation like the originals did' but the reality of it is that they just seem to be pinching their pennies and/or grasping at poorly-crafted marketing straws. Change is not always good.
This is just my two bits. The Tama-Gos are definitely not doing well where I live, they're practically giving them away at London Drugs right now for a whopping 49 cents a piece if I remember correctly.

Same with me, but not exactly TORTURE when I play with my tama-go. When I got my V6, I was happy that I have another "flat" one. I have 7 tama gos.
I no longer run my tama-gos now that I have my music star. Playing with tama-gos now just seems like torture.

As far as the size of it, i can understand how it being so bulky would be annoying to someone who wants to carry it everywhere.
For me however, I always carry a purse so I just slip it in a pouch inside my bag to keep it safe. And also, I only really have time to play with it when I'm either on break at work or at home.
If you really want an awesome tamagotchi, I would just splurg on the iD L. But if you want something right now thats cheaper ( if you find a good deal of the tama go figures... look on amazon for good deals) the tama- go is still fun.
but just an observation... considering the amount of money you would spend buying a tama -go and large amount of figures.. you could of also have had enough to buy an iD L.

However, after a while, the size... it gets to you. I used to hate when people would say "I don't run it because of the size!" But... it's true. That's the reason why I don't run my Tama-go. If it was flatter I would love it. Gameplay is cute, and the built in games are fun.
It's hard to manage, though. I like my Tamas to be inconspicuous and, well, not weight as much as a brick.
And, like someone said earlier, with all the money you spend on figurines, you may as well buy a color Tamagotchi. I've been running my iD L for 60 (nearly) straight generations, where as my Tama-go for only 20-something.
But that's just my opinion, of course.
