Haha no.....Even if I could be good in the game. I would have my body sitting in a bed and fading away. I just drop dead in game one day as I would have gotten sick in the real world.


I would rather go to another world.

While it would be interesting, Sword Art Online, the game itself, isn't a very well designed game. Mother's Basement does a very good analysis of why Sword Art Online wouldn't be very fun to play. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GXCo-InnpU&t=132s (I set it to skip the loot crate plug)

No, the chances of you suddenly dying skyrocket the longer you are bedridden.

In the real world over 1/2 of the SAO players would have died of organ/heart failure within 2 years regardless of what happened to them in game.

Boring! To do the same things over and over... There are only so many ways to cook Ragout Rabbit.

Wouldn't be fair to those who would have to pay to keep me alive. What selfish morons would answer yes?

God no. Fail and you die. Succeed and you're beset by crippling PTSD for the rest of your life from living under the constant threat of death from monsters above your level, and watching a number of friends die from the same.

After getting out of there, you'd never want to touch another video game again.

Nope. Playing a video game where you wave a sword around all day and have to do the same thing over and over again just for a chance to survive isn't worth willingly putting myself in a coma for.

If I could play the game normally without the possibility of death or being trapped, I might be interested.

Knowingly? No
Stuck in they're randomly, and I like to think I'd roll with it pretty well.

No. You're pretty much just doing the same thing over and over again, which is just...boring. I don't really play MMOs too much these days, anyway.

No way. Look at WoW's world first records. It almost never takes only 1 attempt to down a raid boss for the first time. To clear a raid it usually takes over 200 attempts. With SAO's 1 death policy, we'd never make it off the first floor. Life in SAO would get monotonous very quickly.

I'd rather log on to Elder Tale from Log Horizon. At the very least, I could respawn a million times over at the expense of some of my memories. This would, in-turn, allow me to live in the world of Elder Tale in a more relaxed pace, especially to form guilds to either raid dungeons or craft and sell items.

And I just don't get it, either. Tons of people are talking about Sword Art Online, yet barely talk about Log Horizon. What does SAO have that LH doesn't, when the latter was a better representation of the MMORPG experience than the former?

Not only that, but I like to plug it into Leafa. In a MMORPG, pregnancies and STI/STDs might not exist.

As a MMO player, I found alot of the overexplaining in LH to be monotonous, all that romancey stuff and partying all the time was a bit lame too, while it did have strong moments.

As for my friends who do not play mmos, they were simply confused and did not get the show very well, while SAO was more simple mechanically and easier to understand for non-mmo players it seems.

SAO also is more uhh controversial I guess, people love it, people hate it, while LH is has more indifferent reactions to it, it seems.

I agree with you completely. Log Horizon is probably the best "trapped-in-a-video-game" anime out there. The world is incredibly awesome as well.
