I heard about the plot ....which basically took the idea from .hack. Should i watch this series from beginning to end even though there is a major turn of events that happen in season 2....

read the novels instead.

and it didn't steal anything from .hack//. they were being written around the same time, so I'm sure it's more coincidental than anything else. besides that, only the setting has similarities. pretty much everything else is vastly different.

I think it's worth watching the 1st arc at least as the 2nd season ain't so great

Don't get your hopes up, it's a very generic, unimpressive anime despite its premise.

If you watch it just disregard anything you've heard about it to form your own opinion about the series. That said I enjoyed watching it.

I'm gonna be brief about this. If you saw my review that I put in MyAnimeList.net you would know that the show started off really strong. The plot was good at first. The story was engaging for the first 3 episodes, that makes you more excited than the moment when you think you're gonna lose your virginity. But after that, the show slowly becomes dull and stupid. But I mean slowly. It's as if the writer of the story had a good idea at first, but then decided to not think carefully about what happens next in the story, bringing in cliche scenes which are not well planned at the same time.

Sword Art Online is enjoyable to watch though, even if it becomes very retarded as you progress through more episodes. But trust me, you will become very disappointed when you notice the flaws. So feel free to watch it as you like. It's a "Like it or hate it" show.
