This RPG strategy card game came out in 2003 for the Game Boy Advance, and was published and developed by Konami.
Remember how in middle school you had friends who were obsessed with Yu-Gi-Oh cards? Or maybe you yourself also joined in on the craze, and got involved trading cards, as well as having duels with fellow fans of the anime? Well, this game was part of that craze.
Yu-Gi-Oh! The Sacred Cards focuses on you, the player, and your dueling adventures during the Battle City Tournament. Of course, there were bad guys along the way whose butts needed to be kicked in order to save the day.
One interesting aspect of the game was that this was the first game that allowed you to use the Egyptian God cards. Remember those?
On a completely bizarre side note, the game did not follow its own rules! In other words, each card had a weakness, that when exposed to that weakness, would be destroyed instantly! For example, if you had a Pyro (fire) type monster on your side of the field, and your opponent had a Forest (wood) type monster on their side of the field, your card would instantly destroy their card, even if their card was stronger than yours! Huh?! Since when was that allowed?
If this game was remastered for the 3DS, or any handheld/mobile device for that matter with 3D graphics, and more important, fair rules, then that would make many fans of the franchise happy.
