I didn't say it was bad, I just said that's why I prefer Pokémon.

Like, I've never heard of a YGO game, but every few years you hear of a new Pokémon game. It's just about how much people know about it.

And the only episodes I saw, were where the people were getting into duels, and the monsters don't even appear until you put it into battle. There's no emotional side to the monsters, is what I'm trying to say.

And what I was trying to say, was that in the Pokémon games, you sorta build an "emotional" bond to the characters, but in the YGO games, it just feels like "oh great, it's a card, and it has a story. whoopadeedoo."

    I think the bond in YGO doesn't come from games, but from the show. Like for Pokemon the main bond is the games, but for YGO the main bond is the show, you see them used in the show and come to like them. And then the card game is their own game - just like in the game there are no real personalities to your Pokemon, you just project them there, in the YGO card game you probably have a deck you love that centers around monsters you love and you build bonds by playing real people with the cards.

    Well, what about the outside parts where the Pokémon get in trouble and go on adventures, and not just battle? I think that's where I like it better.

    I mean, card games are great if you have an adventurous mind and you can create personalities, but for me it's more about how they're really alive and have real personalities.

    If we're going to talk about TCGs with characters that had personality, we better start talking about the Harry Potter TCG!

    Actually, nah, that thing flopped horribly. Shame, really, as it was a lot of fun.

    also ptcg is way superior to ygo :P /hides from hardcore ygo players
    Actually I do have fun playing both, but the PTCG holds my interest better being the first introduced into my life and also being the most affordable of the Big 3 TCGs.

    I have such fond childhood memories of learning to play MTG though. But I never could afford to play it much. That's why I play video games with cards, I love card games but real card games are so EXPENSIVE.

      Yeah I ended up downloading the Pokemon TCG game on the official website because I didn't want to pay any money to get real cards; I just wanted to battle.

      like, for me.

      for me, not as a fact.

      Like, I feel that way because I clearly have not seen enough YGO episodes.

      I kinda lost interest in MTG because it was so expensive to keep up. It was even more insane trying to actively keep up with 2 TCGs. Ended up pulling myself from both competitively for a couple years or so.

      The single player mode for that does get boring after a while, and to play against people competitively you do have to go out and buy actual booster packs. Or, at least, buy the code cards that come in them. At least if you want a random matchup to be competitive.

      Pokemon is still definitely the cheapest card game of the Big 3, because The Pokemon Company makes an effort to make the really broken cards widely available to everyone. Like Mewtwo EX. That card won entire tournaments by itself before they released the Mewtwo EX tin that had Mewtwo EX in it. Now, instead of just the wealthiest and most dedicated players being the only ones with the card, everyone owns at least one copy of it.

      Oh God, Magic the Gathering.

      My friends got me back into that game recently and it's now the one of the things in my life most likely to keep me constantly broke.

      Also, HOLY BEJEEZES, GATECRASH RELEASES TOMORROW!!!! THERE'S GOING TO BE A DRAFT TOURNAMENT AT MY LOCAL CARD SHOP THERE'S AT LEAST ANOTHER $20 SPENT ON CARDS! FOR UNLAWFUL CARNAL KNOWLEDGE, I HATE MY FRIENDS; THEY'VE RUINED MY LIFE AND I'M ENJOYING EVERY SECOND OF IT!!!!

          The only trading card game I played was Yugioh, and most of the cards were cards given by some rich kid who always bought cards and he gave me cards that he did not wanted.

              I used to play Yu-Gi-Oh! back in the day when the show was actually good (pre-GX imo) but that was waaay back in elementary school for me. I still have my collection of cards somewhere though.

              I also have a collection of older Pokémon Cards but I have never even bothered using those let alone trade them. I think they were given to me from my brother, though as well, when he stopped playing the card game.

                I liked the original season and GX grew on me but after that the YGO show went downhill for me.

                I bought my first pack of Pokémon Cards in years the other day because it came with a Petilil and Lilligant promo pair. I don't intend to play, but pretty pictures.

                I lost interest in Yu-Gi-Oh! when the original series of the anime ended.

                The protagonists after Yugi just didn't interest me.

                I remembered playing Yu-Gi-Oh cards once, when I was using one of my friends' ultimate deck (he lent one for me) and win. I didn't watch any Yu-Gi-Oh anime series, though.

                  The yugioh anime is my childhood and had taught me so much about friendships, determination, amd believing in yourself and trusting your gut feeling too! It means more to me than pokemon. If it werent for yugioh i wouldve never been on pc. I dont play the cardgame much but i will always hold the characters and story dear.
