I still have my first 1997 tamagotchi and my connection from my childhood, I've recently fallen in the pool of nostalgia and cleaned the dust from them and started playing with them again (luckily they still work!).
I've bought several digimon "tamagotchis" and i'm feeling the beat to get more virtual pets, altho i don't really seem to like the "latest" releases of tamagotchi since it looks like bandai has been aiming more for the girls audience, not like the first versions that where more unisex or atleast had colors for girls and boys, so I'm thinking on trying other virtual pets that aren't essentially from the tamagotchi or "bandai" label.
So my question is. What is your favorite non-tamagotchi virtual pet?
I've seen some that look like total rubbish and some that actually look interesting or that are vintage...
