Creatures forever!
I remember playing Creatures when I was young, and it was a brilliant adventure and introduction to life and biology, even if I was too busy gorging them on aphrodisiac tomatoes and fatty carrots. I remember crying when they died, and rejoicing when one was born, just like real pets! I never really got into the game, often allowing the population to soar to maximum, and then teleporting the ones I didn't like out to free up some space. Oh yes, the teleport mechanism, which was supposed to be used for E-mailing your friend your Norn... I remember I hatched a male and a female Norn, and then when they were older, I teleported them out, copied their files, and then imported all of them in. Voila! Instant clones! (Can't remember if any of them were more depressed than any of the others...) Yes, for virtual pet lovers and Evilutionary Biologists to be, Creatures is a 4 out of 5 stars rating!
I torture mine, hehe

The Mad Science is the best part! I enjoy hybridizing weird breeds, and having fun with bizarre things like the C3/DS Gaia.

My favorites are the White-Haired Pixie Norns. :3

After an ill-fated first run where I wound up with a horribly overpopulated world that was impossible to manage, I downloaded the Genetics Kit and decided to try a bit of Mad Science myself. I figured out how to add in Norn mortality and tried to develop a Norn genome that would propagate at an accelerated rate (ideally, they'd be born, have several children and then die off within an hour) without my intervention. Unfortunately, my results from several days' worth of experimentation were discouraging: it seems "have children" and "without intervention" is an either-or proposition. ^_^;
