    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.

I don't care and my excuse is that I'm young

    I remember when Drake first dropped the song "trust issues". Now, you have a lot of people that do wrong things and claim "I don't care, I'm young." "And I'll do what I want", which is why YOLO became such a big phrase last year. I always didn't care for the word at all and you won't see me saying it. The word YOLO being texted has also resulted in a few car wrecks.

    But, thing is, why do some people say such things? Example: My excuse, I was young before and I said those things because I didn't care about any consequences that would result from my behavior which in reality I did care, I was just being dumb and naive because I only live once.

    Same reason why people text and drive.. They're being wreckless to their surroundings and environment.
    Take some young teenagers as good examples of this. They love to party and some usually drive drunk. Which results in accidents and other harm being done.

    Which brings me to the next question, have you ever met someone that was just plain wreckless and they needed help and/or treatment but they refused it?

    I'm young, but I never use that excuse. When I mess up, I mess up, no excuses, because everyone makes mistakes. It's just how you deal with them afterwards that matters.

    Mistakes are also lessons in life and teach us on how to do better so that we don't repeat the same mistakes over and over. Some just aren't willing to accept that and continue to make the same mistakes over and over.

    I'm "young" (23) but you only stay young for the smallest portion of your life, and dying young...well, there's a lot you can miss out on. But you can entirely blame them. I don't think your brain fully stops developing into you're into your mid twenties; that means that entirely, people aren't fully "functional". Which is possibly when people engage in wreckless behavior.

    The thing which gets me? Not wearing seat belts! I know far too many young people who died and it was deemed a tragedy when, we all know, although not mentioned in the newspapers - they probably hadn't been wearing seat belts when they were thrown from the car. I don't get it. Wearing them is nearly the same as not, it takes like two seconds to put it on. If you're not worried about your own driving, be weary of others because there's always some crazy person driving terribly.

    Alcohol in general is a legal liquid drug and costs thousands of lives per year. I've engaged in drinking it to "spice" up little events or to make me more social, but life is far more compelling when you're totally "there" and sober. I've said some pretty dumb things while intoxicated which I deeply regret now.

    People do risky things because it gives them a natural sort of "high". Is it stupid? Many times, yes. But there's plenty of different ways to feel "good". I personally love hiking or swimming. I also like roller coasters. :p

    YOLO is a stupid buzzword meant to give people an excuse to be reckless. It's pointless. Yes, you only live once: isn't that more of a reason to be somewhat careful?
