Neopets is still around

Growing up in the ’90s, PC gaming was a different experience than it is now. Remembering the excitement of getting a second family computer with 1GB of storage space, the author reflects on the early days of exploring the internet and stumbling upon websites through books. Revisiting childhood loves like Wizard 101 and Neopets brings back nostalgic memories. However, Neopets, a virtual pet playground launched in 1999, is not what it used to be. Dependent on Flash, which is now dead, the site’s functionality has suffered. Despite its decline, the forums remain active, and some games and pet care features still provide lighthearted fun. While the author may not settle down on Neopets, they encourage others to take a nostalgic visit.
