Yu-Gi-Oh! usually produces some of the most fun games in the gaming world. Regardless of the platform, there is always a franchise title that is worth playing. We decided to list here the best of the best, whether you want to kill your nostalgia, or rush to buy!
1. Forbidden Memories – PlayStation 1
With the pardon of the pun, for many this is the true King of Duel! After all, Forbidden Memories marked an entire generation from the 1990s! It contained an incredible 722 cards, which for the time was a lot. There were still fusions, ritual cards, classic characters and a very interesting story!
It was one of the most difficult games in the franchise. Even with the ease of obtaining the letters and the passwords , it was still hard to face some duelists. And something that excited the players a lot was bringing together the five parts of Exodia. Victory was guaranteed on the spot!

2. Yu-Gi-Oh! Online – PC
Not everyone knows that there is an online game in the franchise. You just have to register on the game’s website, set up your deck and go to battle against friends and strangers. It has existed since 2005 and, despite not being so publicized, it is quite successful among fans of Yugi and company.
3. The Eternal Duelist Soul – Game Boy Advance
Released in 2002, this is one of the most complete Yu-Gi-Oh! In total it brought 819 cards, and for a long time it was considered the definitive edition of the franchise’s games . It was very well received not only for bringing super iconic characters from the anime, but for allowing users to fight each other using a Game Link cable.
4. Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour – Nintendo DS
Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour sought to use DS resources to make the duelists’ experience a little more immersive. Touching the screen made decision making easier and made the duels much more agile compared to previous games. The upper screen showed animations of the monsters, even while attacking.
The game had over 1000 cards and, again, put players in the shoes of a young duelist. As a novice, your mission was to battle famous and better duelists, to level up and improve your deck .
5. Yu-Gi-Oh! Capsule Monster Coliseum – PlayStation 2
This game was one of the ones that most followed a different path in relation to anime or manga. Although still focused on the cards, Capsule Monster Coliseum was more strategic. It looked a lot like Final Fantasy Tactics , too. A point that pleased fans who liked RPG and a good narrative.
In fact, you could evolve your monsters as they gain experience. A point that makes this one of the most different games in the franchise!
6. Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007 – Nintendo DS
Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007 was a beautiful revolution. It was entirely focused on online competition between players from around the world. This was possible thanks to the DS’s WiFi system. In this game you could play with up to 1640 cards, including the famous and powerful Egyptian gods.
In fact, this was one of the first electronic games to have an eSport-style championship.
7. Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s Tag Force 4 – PSP
The fourth game in the Tag Force series is one of the best ever released. There are more than 4000 cards, with up to 200 decks previously assembled and that you can use to assemble yours. You can play in partnership with a friend, as in previous games in this series. The cool thing was that you could download new cards using PSN on your laptop.
8. Yu-Gi-Oh! The Legacy of The Duelists – PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
The game for the latest generation of consoles is a huge fan service , as it offers the possibility for players to go through the first 5 generations of the anime. This makes you face all the most famous duelists in the drawing. There are more than 90 opponents to face.
You can use decks created by the game, but of course you can create your own. The game is nothing innovative. But this is more because the idea of a card game does not allow so much innovation. It is one of the best on the list because it is a great tribute to the fans who have followed the franchise since Forbidden Memories .
9. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links – iOS and Android
One of the most successful Yu-Gi-Oh! for mobile phones. Duel Links brings a little different gameplay than many players are used to, however. Hit points are 4000, and the number of card spaces in the field is also less. In addition, each player has skills that interfere with matches.
In addition to the single player campaign mode , after a certain level you can play in PvP . It is a very complete game and it is quite successful among fans who prefer to play on the smartphone .
