Discussion: What Is YOUR Favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! Online TCG?
Posted by Yogizilla on May 16, 2011
Let’s shift gears and come back to the heart of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Pass Online (DPO) blog: Yu-Gi-Oh!

Yu-Gi-Oh! Online (YGOO) for the PC is still one of the biggest and most active communities for hardcore and casual Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG duelists alike. If you’re serious about improving your Yu-Gi-Oh! skills, YGOO is the way to go. As you can see here on DPO, some have a love-hate relationship with Konami’s flagship Yu-Gi-Oh! Game but, love it or hate it, there are few other ways to duel on a global scale. I miss taking part in the Yu-Gi-Oh! events myself so, if you play, let me know. I’m hoping to take a break from project work and catch up with fellow Yu-Gi-Oh! fans, online gamers, and duelists alike. w00t!Over the past five or six years, I’ve promoted the heck out of Yu-Gi-Oh! Online but, lately, the console and handheld versions seem to be easier to jump into, especially if you are budget-minded. I’m looking to buy either Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2011 or Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2010. Both games are in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s universe and are on the Nintendo DS. From what I’ve seen, 2011 has more replay value but 2010 has a longer story (and is bargain-priced).
Currently, I have Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s Decade Duels for the XBox 360. It’s great but you really struggle with the starter deck, unless you spend roughly $2.50 on virtual booster packs. You DO get good cards if you perform well, which mainly means surviving many turns. I have yet to try the online play modes but the story mode is merely one long tournament and the NPCs are no pushover. The tough battles make me determined but frustrate me too. LOL… Anyone else having trouble with this game’s difficulty? The game is almost as brutal as Yu-Gi-Oh! on the original XBox, except you get MUCH better cards in Decade Duels.
If you want to play sometime, add me on XBox LIVE. Yogizilla is the name, though I am pondering changing it to YogizillaNoF so I can rep my long-time clan, the Nipples of Fate, to full effect. I also have Magic the Gathering, though that has been buggy, to say the least.
If you’re looking for more Yu-Gi-Oh! bang-for-your-buck, check out yesteryear’s Yu-Gi-Oh! video games. I can’t think of any since “Nightmare Trabadour” (sp?) that had no online play. Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s World Championship 2010 seems to be the best deal right now if you consider the overall cost of ownership. You can probably pick it up used for $15 or swap someone for it if you look around enough. Personally, my favorite part of the Yu-Gi-Oh! video games is being able to try out new decks. Yu-Gi-Oh! deck building is so flexible, which really ups replay value.
What is your favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! online TCG? Do you prefer the PC, DS, or XBox 360?
