I'm not sure how to discuss this without having at least some general spoilers. Am I being too cautious here?
SAO:

AOT:

To me, the situation for the populace seems so much more hopeless in AOT (at least after only having the events of the first episode to go by). It's everyone's actual lives, not a game where there could be at least some hope of being rescued by outside events, so if there is a "happy" ending, that one would be all the more epic. And if not a happy ending, then it could have a similar atmosphere to the end of Grave of the Fireflies; something I wouldn't miss for the world, but I'd never watch it twice. I don't think I would watch SAO twice either, but more because knowing the ending takes the tension out of it. This was a comparison question, so without trying to fling any mud here, my vote is that for episode one: AOT >>>> SAO

AOT is another one of these overhyped anime?
Guess I'll think this one is overrated too then.

AOT Is definitely better, the first episode had way more going on a lot more dramatic as well (made me feel the excitement i get when i watch good anime) unlike SAO's pilot which was rather dull and if AOT follows the manga, it will be near top in my ranking list of best Anime.

My thoughts exactly. It's not even close. That pilot was just so dramatic and emotional for me. By the opening, my eyes were already watery . God I've waited so long for this.

I enjoyed both but I can't say which one is better. I can't wait for next episode of AOT.

Probably SAO. I really like the idea of the protagonist doing a 180 and abandoning everyone. That is something you don't see very often, the score of SAO is something that really sets it apart too. Attack on titan was quite good though.

I 1000% agree on this, once in a while i do start an anime that isn't finished, but except for Macross Frontier it was always by mistake.

Macross is just too awesome to wait for :)
