Long before mankind had began collecting Pokemon, there was one thing that used to dominate all the schools, lunch rooms, playgrounds, classrooms, bedrooms, hallways, and everywhere else that kids would find themselves, clutching onto, for dear life…
What were these mystical things?
They were, for many, the very foundation upon which many of today’s virtual pet games have been built upon.
They were Tamagotchi.
Now if you don’t know what a Tamagotchi was, then please continue reading…
A Tamagotchi is a keychain-sized, virtual animal simulation, made available to people of all ages. The personalities are vibrant and simplistically-made creatures, that were based upon real animals, items, and/or even real individuals. Now, starting in 2004, a new age of Tamagotchi toys emerged, featuring a various video styles, by JINCO and also gameplay that had elaborated upon the previous creations of the initial generations that experienced this amazing game about training virtual pets. Nevertheless, the tale behind the video games stayed the exact same: Tamagotchis are a little alien species that arrived promptly on our Earth to see what life was like, and it was dependant upon the player to care for the egg, and spiritually elevate the being into becoming a fine, adult animal. During it’s life-cycle, the creature undergoes several stages of growth, and will evolve differently depending upon the care the gamer gives to it, with far better care causing a grown-up animal that is smarter, better, as well as calls for less attention. Gameplay could vary commonly in between versions, as well as some alternate variations, such as TamagoChu, calling for little to no care from the gamer. Tamagotchi has a huge fan base.
Tamagotchi were originally developed for adolescent gals, to offer them a concept of just what it would be like to deal with youngsters.
But, that’s old news..
We’ve moved onto such titles as Pokemon, Digimon, and so many other evolutions of pet-based games.

Imagine being afraid of insects, dinosaurs, and spiders, and then imagine yourself being thrust into a world in which these very same fears, happen to be firm believers in Murphy’s Law.. Check out the video below:
Believe it or not, the world is migrating to a place where there is already a very thin line between reality and fantasy. Virtual Reality is that factor that somehow combines the two, into one very REALish experience! Did you see how frightened she became? What if that screen was a bit wider and the graphics were better?.. What if these and other types of virtual worlds could somehow activate all our senses? Could you imagine playing your favorite online video games with your friends, and while engaging in some deeply involved quest, your friends are gathering items to convert into other items, and you could literally SMELL the ingredients!? We already don’t need keyboards to communicate with our friends, while gaming. If we’re wearing a headset, we can simply speak, just as if they were in our homes alongside us. Technology will only get better, from this point. If you’re sitting here, reading this, then you’re at least thinking about the future of gaming technology and how such online virtual worlds could play a vital part in it all. Do you think you are alone, in these thoughts?
Do you honestly think that your desire to experience an online virtual environment is yours, alone, and nobody else’s?
Well, think again!
Let’s examine how this is very likely to be the way of the future…
So, some person gains access to a computer-generated and computer-simulated world, which grants a certain stimuli activation to said person, who in turn, can now reach out with their bare hands, to manipulate parts of this rendered world. Thus, this person gets to experience a level of presence and awareness, that the real world simply cannot always offer.
Think about it.. You’re a fat, lazy, do-nothing sloth, that could never get a beautiful girl, to save your life. A bit extreme of an example, I know. But work with me, here. So anyway, you connect to your device that grants you access to one of these magical, powerful, and perhaps even free online virtual worlds, and in an INSTANT, you become a beautiful avatar. You now allow people to see you as you perhaps would like to see yourself, rather than as you probably are. If you’d like to appear as some sort of Greek God, then that is what you shall be. In this sense, you are ONLY LIMITED by your own imagination.
On the flip-side, perhaps you’re a beautiful young lady, and are absolutely sick and tired of being sick and tired of being treated like some spoiled little princess, and would rather people see that you have a longing for killing dragons and taking down monsters. Well, finally, this is your chance to get your hands dirty, and do exactly everything you’ve always been wanting to do! And it’s not just sitting in a stationary position, holding a piece of plastic, and only moving your thumbs. You BECOME your character! Defy the laws of gravity, move faster than any real human should, stop bullets with a swat of your hands, bend the very air that surrounds you, or simply spend all day performing more repetitive tasks, such as mining or fishing.
