    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and the largest forum in our industry. Game owners can use our forum to their advatange by promoting/advertising their games to our users and receive feedback/reviews from those members that try their games out. We support developers of all kinds from RPG developers, sim game developers to virtual pet site developers. We want to see more games in our industry come across more success and that's why we try our best to release as many guides/articles regarding online gaming development as we can.
    We're unlike other forums in our industry because we try our best to be there for our users no matter what and give them advice whenever they ask for it. Running an online game isn't an easy task, but with our many resources that we've built since 2011, you'll learn a lot from our online community. Please don't ever be afraid to ask a question on the forums because if you never ask, then you'll never receive an answer to your question and you can only improve by asking other users for help/advice.
    We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are very frequent visitors on our online community. Along with artists, writers and programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our members who are artists sell art in our art marketplace and programmers are allowed to sell their scripts in the programming marketplace. We also allow game owners to sell their game in our general marketplace
    In early 2011, we decided to make a comeback to the internet because in 2010, we had a minor setback and we had to re-launch without any content, but with a lot of time, patience, hardwork and effort, we've managed to rebuild the Virtual pet list community into something better than it was before. We actually registered our domain name on November 4th, 2004, but we were only a directory then and all we had was a basic comments system for users to post things on their favorite games..
    So, what are you waiting for, why don't you join today? If you have any problems figuring out our security code, then here's a hint, it has millions upon users and has been around since 1997.
    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of different games listed, so we're pretty sure that you may find some games that suits your needs as a player of sim games or virtual pet sites.
    If you're still curious about a certain game that you'd like to play, then please check out some of our game reviews that were written by some of our great contributors and our interviews with respective virtual pet site owners, sim game owners, artists, writers and programmers that have worked in this industry.

    What do you all think of Google's domination in, well almost everything.

    Google Web Search
    Google Chrome
    Google Desktop
    Google Earth
    Google Maps
    Google News
    Google Toolbar
    Google Code
    Google Calendar
    Google Alerts
    Google Mobile
    Google Mail
    Google Docs
    Google Translate
    Google Books
    Google Sites
    Google Talk
    Google Sketchup
    Google Knol
    Google Directory
    Google Health
    Google Finance
    Google Realtime
    Google Product Search
    Google Patent Search
    Google Android
    Google Chrome OS

    Not to mention they also own at least some percentage of:

    YouTube
    Blogger
    AOL
    reCAPTCHA
    Metaweb
    Etherpad

    Here is a full list:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_acquisitions_by_Google

    What do you think of this? As you can see by the Wikipedia page, Google has already bought four companies this year!

    I imagine, not too long from now, there'll be a Google Pharmacy, Google Car and whatever else they can think of.

    Is Google's domination positive or negative to you and what do you think will the future holds?

    Well i will start with this.....

    Youtube is google owned they are the ones who started it. It's not a %.
    Same for blogger
    The rest I;m not sure.


    I find that it's a cool thing but it can be a positive thing as long as their is always some sort of competition because if google gets greedy everybody would leave to the other one and google wouldn't be able to charge to expensive and stuff. It is especially good for the owners. LOl

    Google did not start YouTube, and I know that Google fully owns that company.

    So it would be 100%...

    I stated "at least some percentage of" because I knew that some were only partial, but I wanted to generalize them into one short list.

    Yes, I agree that it has some positive aspects, and indeed particularly for website owners.

    It is nice to have a variety though, because Google can't please everyone.

    Thanks for your input!

    I've been a huge fan of Google for a while - all the tools that they offer for us webmasters. It makes everything so easy.
    And not to mention all the traffic it brings to websites. :)

    Especially since they have mobile phones out now as well as a social networking site. It's been amazing seeing Google grow into a power-house over the years.:cool:

    I bet you anything they will become the US Government. xD
