I liked Yu-Gi-Oh! before the first season ended. The sheer number of cards and the fact that you have to explain what they do 70% of the time turned me away from card games. They aren't fun to me anymore.
Too bad my parents burned them all. I had most of the iconic ones, too; Blue-Eyes White, Red-Eyes Black, Summoned Skull, Dark Magician, DMGirl, Kuriboh, Time Wizard, Baby Dragon, 1000 Year Dragon the list goes on... good times.
