It's not that it's popular, I actually really liked NGNL even though a lot of people hate it.

The reason I dislike SAO is because it's painfully average. What I mean by that is there's nothing in the show that particularly stands out other than the setting. None of the characters have any traits or dialogue that caught my attention and on the whole they were all pretty forgettable. In fact, the only character that caught my interest was Asuna in the first few episodes because she was sort of mysterious, unfortunately they cast her to the damsel-in-distress role later on in the show which was pretty disappointing.

Also the romance in the show seems very forced. After not seeing each other for a while Kirito pretty much just says "hi" to Asuna and then they fall in love with no real development.

So yeah, those are the reasons off the top of my head for why I don't particularly like SAO.

The main criticism of the show that I've seen (and that I find it had to argue with) is that the series is pretty much the epitome of adolescent male power fantasy. Kirito, as a character, is one of the least flawed main characters I can think of; really, the greatest flaw he seems to have is failing to be awesome enough to save everybody immediately. Pretty much every female character is in love with him, and most conflicts are resolved by him beating the crap out of the bad guy, either literally or figuratively (but usually literally). There's rarely a sense that Kirito is ever really in danger of losing, and, even when he loses, its generally to set up a bigger victory later on.

There are other criticisms of the shows, mostly related to gender roles. I don't know how I feel about that; I mean, I hope that most viewers are aware that this is a work of fiction and that the characters' behavior doesn't necessarily correspond to real life. That's never really bothered me about the series.

That said, I don't actively dislike the show. I actually watch it every week. But I ain't gonna pretend it doesn't have its problems.

2 things
1. That's a horrid reason to dislike something

I mean lets be honest, we all fell in love with Kirito and Asuna and their first adventure being trapped in a video game world. We fell for the environment, how they changed as characters who become attached to the very prison they were in. And then ever since the ALO story-arc they have been shitting on all of it.

From the creepy bad guys which doesnt fit with the light heartedness of the anime, or just the fact that its just another high school male harem focused anime now.... I think the better question is why do people still LIKE Sword Art Online.

On a side note I dont mind if you like it, but I do judge you a lil' bit.

The first 14 episodes were OK, but the series really jumped the shark and got dumb at that point. Ever since then the quality of the writing keeps getting worse and A1 blows most of their budget on animating certain episodes, leaving what's left to have pretty craptastic animation. I like to pretend that SAO ended after Aincrad. It was alright up to that point, then it just gets bad. REALLY bad.

They're jealous of Kirito.
