While all these shows have about the same genre type(playing in a fully immersive VR world), they tackle it in different ways.

Defend your choice here if you can!

I'm glad "All of them" was an option. I didn't want to choose between SAO and Log Horizon. They're both great for different reasons. I'd probably pick SAO if I could only pick one, but they're all fun.

I would say .hack// if G.U. hadn't totally out-shined the anime.

So, instead I'll say Accel World

I knew SAO would get a lot of votes, sort of surprised Log Horizon isn't a strong 2nd though.

Probably what makes Sword Art Online so popular is the characters and story are very relatable with a little something for almost everyone.

With .hack// it always seemed to me(with the exception of a 3 episode OAV) like I was getting 1/2 the story since it was closely tied into the video game. Plus, you almost never see the characters outside of the game even though for the most part they aren't trapped there.

Accel World I've only seen 3 episodes so far but maybe making the main character a short fat kid hits to close to home.

Log Horizon only sticking point with me is these people are all stuck in a VR world and it doesn't seem like anyone is really worried about whats happening to their bodies in real life.

I've only watched SAO so far and I loved it. I want to watch Log Horizon but haven't got round to it yet

SAO is my favorite because it got me back into anime again and renewed my hope of seeing good anime again. Its positive but deals with it in a realistic not overly happy go lucky kind of way. Its a perfect balance of action and drama and the characters are all very well done.

Hack I just never got into, but I may give it a try again. Kinda tied heavily into the games and I never had those consoles...

Log Horizon: This one is good and I am watching it, but I just can't put it near SAO. Well thought out... yes. Interesting characters... yes. Riveting episodes... eh... not so much. Seriously I have so often with Log Horizon felt like I just wasted my time after watching an episode. But I guess for people who didn't mind animes like Dragonball... 2 full episodes of them just getting pumped up to fight... then this show might work for them. Please don't compare it to Spice and Wolf either. Spice and wolf was made awesome because of the relationship between the two main characters and right now Log Horizon's main characters just aren't as well done.

Accel World I have yet to watch.. its on my list of things to watch, but I don't know I think the art style keeps me from going and trying it out. One day...

No mention of Master of Epic? It is based on a real MMORPG, which none of the others can attest too.

Summer Wars is also a great movie with an excellent and heartwarming story.

However, out of the selection from the list, my favorite is the .hack// series. There were a few that I didn't really like, but most of them were great.

You only get 5 slots to fill in choices and I've never heard of Master of Epic(sorry). As for Summer Wars, I was just thinking of anime series at the time. I'll probably add it if I ever re-start this poll.

I've only seen SAO and .hack//, I liked both of them even though both were pretty much the same plot changed around. .hack// had some excellent music.

I have watched SAO, but the others I haven't watched yet. They're all good in my opinion.
