I’ve always held fleeting love affairs with digital card games. I played a whole lot of Magic Online back in the day, not to mention long stretches with Hearthstone. There’s something addicting about collecting cards and building exciting decks, as long as I can do it on a budget.
We’ve certainly seen a ton of digital card games over the years, many of which with strong MMO ties. There’s been SOE’s card game spin-offs, HEX, Legends of Runeterra, Artifact, and more. MMOs like FFXIV, Elder Scrolls Online, and Black Desert all have added in-game card duels as a minigame system.
Assuming that you’ve played at least one of these online card games — perhaps even one not mentioned here — I’d love to hear which you consider to be the best and why! What’s your favorite TCG or DCG or CCG or however you like to acronym that?
