A Look Back
by TheDungeonMaster
10.05.10 

I know, a while a go I wrote a good-bye, but I decided to re-vamp it. Years later, to see what has changed since then. Needless to say, I'll never forget the game I loved.

 

At the time of this writing, its September 2010. I left YuGiOh in 2008. I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a jump in the game ever since. But it only lasted a month or two and nothing major. But let me get to the point; I'm writing this to reflect on some of the great memories I had with the game.

 

Remembering Chaos:

I was there for the original Invasion of Chaos. I do still read what people are playing now, when Dark Armed Dragon rained as champion, and these new Synchro monster just came out. But I remember Chaos Emperor Dragon – Envoy of the End and Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning. I remember when those cards came out and THAT was the deck everyone used. Nothing else. Those were dooms-days.

 

A Magician Frenzy:

I had to put this in here. My favorite card, Breaker the Magical Warrior, was released in Magician's Force. Nothing else to say about that, but it was there.

 

Level-4 and... 1900 attack???

Gemini Elf. The original Beat-Down. I don't know what's considered Beat-Down right now, but the original was great. 3 Gemini Elf. 3 La-Jinn. 3 Harpies Brother. 3 7-Colored Fish. The list goes on. Those were the Beat-Down days.

 

Spirit Lock-Down

When the Spirit Monsters hit in Legacy of Darkness, no one gave them a good look. But then we got the secret-rare: Yata-Garasu. I don't think a true Spirit deck took off, but Yata just made Chaos decks that much stronger.

 

A Deck That Is Still used Today:

Gravekeepers. Remember those? I still see some people playing with them. It's a pretty cheap deck to build, but it works great. A close friend of mine used it a lot, and I always had trouble beating it. But thankfully, people haven't seemed to to get rid of this fully yet.

 

A Warrior Lockdown:

Personally, Warriors were one of my favorite decks to run. Sadly, it doesn't seem like people are playing these guys anymore, but oh well. They were fun while it lasted.

 

Other Great Cards We Forgot About:

These are other cards that were highly sought after, and used a bit, but know you can find in Starter Decks or less then $5.00. Injection Fairy Lilly. Magical Cylinder. Delinquent Duo. Jinzo (although some people may still use this). There are PLENTY of other cards I could put here, but that would take too long for me to do. Still, those cards to me will never die.

 

An Easy Way to Play:

For those on the site who remember Pook, he mentioned one easy way to still play the game: get the GBA/DS games. This year during GameStop Power Saver Sale, I picked up the new World Championship game. And it worked. I got my fill, and I didn't run out and buy a bunch of cards.

 

And with that, I close this article. When I first started playing YuGiOh, I was 13 years old, in 8th grade, no job and not a care in the world. At the writing of this, I am now 20, have a job, a truck bill and phone, and I'm in college. The game has never left me, and I will always love this game. I encourage everyone to remember the game we enjoy, as most of us still do.
