QQ: What Does Yu-Gi-Oh! Mean to You?

November 23rd, 2019

QQ stands for Quick Questions! I surveyed the Duelists in attendance this weekend and asked them an important philosophical question: What does Yu-Gi-Oh! mean to you? The question invites a wide range of responses. Check out how they answered!

“It’s about reliving my childhood. I get to take a break from my job and everyday problems.” -Mario Sanchez

“It’s my lifestyle. I grew up playing it and made some really good friends playing it. It has connected me to a lot of people, and I really can’t imagine playing any game quite like this.” -Donovan Nguyen

“Yu-Gi-Oh! to me is a different life. I get to be someone who breaks away from the way I normally am. I get to act differently, and I feel free. I get to meet a bunch of fun people – people I wouldn’t meet normally. It’s its own little society and it’s fun to be a part of.” -Pablo Rodriguez

“I wouldn’t be the person I am now without Yu-Gi-Oh!. It taught me interaction skills – it taught me life skills.” -Jake Quinsee

Yu-Gi-Oh! has played an important part in many people’s lives. Those people have learned valuable lessons from playing it and get tremendous enjoyment out of the game. They’re all fortunate to be gathered here at YCS Pasadena to enjoy Yu-Gi-Oh! together.
