This compilation will bring together the first games in the history of Yu-Gi-Oh! and note that some of them were never released in the West.

The first Yu-Gi-Oh game released in the West was Yu-Gi-Oh! Forbidden Memories for PlayStation, but the saga became more common on portable consoles, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance, which replicated the card battles on consoles.
