If someone else develop this same game concept with lightsabers (and is good) I think I'll never play another game. biggrin.gif

Agree, star wars / lightsaber inspired combat over anime any day of the week. I'd be really let down if this actually worked well but was anime inspired in its execution.

Sorry, but real life is the hardest game ever and people try everyday to escape and and "LogOut".

How is a video game which is similar any different other than you can now become a murderer in under 10 seconds. hmm..

The other part of that deal is, if you get to the end and defeat the boss, you become the new god. For some, thats a worthwhile gamble. While the concept is still sci-fiction, i'm not sure it'll stay that way decades from now.

Not even friends.
I'm not sure I want that level of immersion either! It would be cool to try out and see what it is like but I would always be afraid that my brain would be messed up in true SAO style.

His reasoning was that in the Sword art story it means that.
You die in the game = You die in the real world.
Bar the start you actually see very little of mmo in Sword art online since it basically becomes a romance in a fantasy world.

I rather have log Horizon tbh.
It still uses all the mmo terms and keeps gaming mechanics like respawn and no player killing in cities.

Well like it or not, it is by far the most popular one of the bunch
Personally pretty low on my list as well for the whole mmo anime genre.

Meh... I truly do not know why it is so popular. SAO is garbage. It's comparable to crap like Naruto and Bleach. Hell, just the Greed Island arc from Hunter X Hunter was superior than the entire SAO series. tongue.gif

Make something like GITC, people will be trippin' balls for that.

SAO has gotten the most "air-time" and is arguable the most popular LN / Anime that is based on VR-type video games. Even though there are better ones out there I won't complain that they chose SAO, as it is obvious why they did.

SAO first, then Star Wars! Disney would never allow the license to be used that way though I bet.

There are a lot of weird "quirks" in the SAO universe that would have to be changed / adapted somehow to play out like a "normal" vr-mmorpg game.

Hack Sign, Accel World, Overlord, Dennou Coil, and perhaps Ghost in the Shell among a lot of others all weep about this... tongue.gif

.Hack is probably the original one, at least the first one i can think off.
Have to i enjoyed the insanity of the Overlord the most tough.
The main character buffing himself for 5minutes before a big a fight was just amazing and brings all kinds of memories back.thumb.gif

Dennou Coil is Microsoft HoloLens material not VR.

Did the writers ever explain how the physical body was kept alive even though the mind was trapped in the virtual world? I could see that as a issue if some company actually tried to make a real SAO.
