So, it's just a souped-up Tamagotchi then?

Apparently the premise of the game is to get a puppy and teach him to do tricks, catch frisbees, and all-around be a good dog. That's all well and good in real life with a real dog, but Nintendogs just becomes aggravating. To get my dog to sit, I had to repeat the command over and over into my microphone and repeat it over and over with my stylus for almost an hour. Sure, teaching a real dog a trick may be much more complicated than this, but I wouldn't get a real dog for the same reasons I would get Nintendogs. I kept hoping it would get better, but the game is just the same thing every day, until you die. You can teach your dog some tricks (which also has a daily limit), enter him in contests (daily limit), take him for a walk (thirty minutes required in between walks), sit at home and do nothing with him, or have him visit with a friend's dog. Well, it's sad to say that my 30 day return policy is expired since Christmas, and it's also sad to say I never remembered that I could return it. RIP Nintendogs, you will collect dust for all eternity unless I decide to sell you on eBay, because I sure as heck will never play you again.
