    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.

    Which do you prefer, and why? Do you prefer gaming on the PC, or do you prefer gaming on a console? And if you prefer gaming on a console, what's your console of choice?

    I like both. Computers seem to have more power to handle some better games, but at the end of the day I don't know what life would have been like without Nintendo.
    I'll never be caught with an Xbox though. Nothing is appealing to me about first person shooters or games that solely rely on multiplayer aspects.

    My favorite console has been Gamecube, since I was a little too young for SNES and N64. The range from very casual like Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing to classics like Sonic and LoZ is to die for.
    And if I wanted a little more hardcore gaming, I had backup in the form of my PS2. I'm desperately awaiting Wii U and hoping Nintendo will make a comeback for real gamers who don't want party games or shooters x.x

    I prefer console (Playstation for me), but I understand the strong benefits of PC gaming. The hardware for consoles becomes outdated quickly, while PC rigs can replace that same hardware regularly. Once a new console comes out, it's typically great for its time and handles new material excellently, but it goes with out saying my 5 year old PS3 does not have the same capabilities as my fiance's 1 year old gaming rig.

    PC gaming. I've come to love playing MMORPGs but I would probably never have done so if I haven't enjoyed playing RPGs in my old PS1... So yeah... :p I do miss playing the classics though (Bomberman, Street Fighter, Contra, etc... Ah younger days LOL)

    Definitely PC gaming. My g/f and I don't even own a Console. I've been playing PC games for more than 20 years, and I'm still hooked. :D I do a lot more than just game which is why I prefer PC. But we thought about getting a PS3 this Christmas. We'll see!

    We have a mac and pc along with xbox360 with kinect, ps3 with move, and wii.

    I prefer the mac mostly because I like to get everything in one place like music, movies, games, and all the typing photos etc can be done with my mac. Also, playing on a computer gives you a lot more keys and functions which I think makes a game more interesting ie WOW and why it isnt on a xbox or something.

    Husband likes both but I think he prefers his ps3 to anything and i think its because he loves shooting people and there is a lot od shooting people games lol.

    For me, it depends what kind of game I'm playing. xDDD
    If it's a first-person shooter, I would love to be on my PC as I can aim faster.
    If it's relatively EVERYTHING else, I prefer my consoles. (PS2, PS3, Xbox, Wii, PSP, NDS, Gameboy)

    I've been primarily a PC gamer since 03 now, and will always continue to do so. I find it easy to just buy my games on there through networks like steam and just hooking up a gamepad/controller if I really don't want to use a mouse + keyboard.

    It also isn't THAT costly to upgrade a PC. Yes the initial price for a gaming PC can be mind blowing, but the upgrades can equal out to the cost of a console. Overall I'll just always just the game selection a lot more, and of course, MMORPG's!

    See, my boyfriend loves PC Gaming. Personally, I prefer console gaming although I will play a few PC Games. I'm not the hardcore person who runs around screaming only console fuuuuu. Either works for me. I just love my xbox.
