The only interesting features I could imagine with a pet system is possibly some cool minigames like teaching your pets tricks or running them through obstacles courses. Some sort of system similar to Nintendog's walk system where your pet randomly find items would also pique my interest. I can't really think of what else would be interesting about a pet system though.
This made think of my very first hour of logging into Gaia and creating my avatar for the first time. I had just clicked the last part of the join page, and finally I had my own character. Not a minute later did I ask myself, do I have to feed my character? Will she starve??
Basically I thought that Gaiaonline was a teen and human version of neopets sweatdrop
Unless it's an equippable multi-pose item like an Evolving Item (ie, it gains new poses as the pets grows up) or craps out gold/prizes (like Aquarium), I don't know why I would use a Pet System at all.
I dunnoooooooo... it really depends. I was never dragged into Neopets, so I don't know if I'd like it. I suppose I wonder what he point of it would be? If you could, say, get new items from them, then I'd totally be interested. Otherwise, eh...
Summer event! I am hoping one of the new games they are testing will be a pet system. And if people don't like it then they won't forward production on it. But i'm sure people will like it. people have been asking for pets for a long time.
THE MYSTERY FLUFF'S PURPOSE!!!! IS TO BE A PET! I CAN FEEEEELL IT
