I don't get it those people were all gamers the real world sucks kayaba gave the players what im sure every one of them dreamed about a new world where they could be heroes in a world so much more amazing than our own filled with adventure and swords I know that's what all rpgs do but the dying and the lack of log out was the only way to truly make it real so why did everyone desperately want to stop playing the most amazing game ever made

Probably for the simple fact that they were forced into the game not by their own volition leaving their lives which they may of loved and not knowing if they could ever go back to the real world or something like that.

I'm sure people liked it, but most of them probably did miss their families in the real world don't you think?
I would stay tho, but that's just me heh.

The characters said that the virtual world didn't feel totally real- it was still lacking in terms of subtle sensations, so many of the players possibly wouldn't consider the virtual world as good as the real thing.

It's kind of like preferring real food to junk food. It takes place in Japan, so it's not that surprising that people by in large prefer the real thing when given the choice between the real thing and an imitation.

They had families? Black Cats Leader committed suicide after learning what happened to his friends.

I think you're forgetting the sheer fact that their actual bodies were practically dying, and could only survive with some type of real world assistance or life support.

Case and point, making that:

- Kirito and co. basically point that fact out.
- When SAO ended, Kirito was extremely famished and skeleton-like.

You'd die if you "lived" in SAO.

Actually not everyone wanted out. It wasn't specifically spelt out for you but you could tell some of the people near the end didnt care about leveling or reaching the top. You could say the fear of death is what dissuaded them but im more certain they just got use to it and enjoyed it there.

Not dying is a strong motivator.

You'd need to have a life to understand.

If playing the most amazing game ever made is really something you'd prefer to your real world in its entirety, something you'd throw away everything for without any regret, you probably haven't the slightest clue what it means to actually "live".

Im with you... I think these diehard gamers who got in on the flash sale of this game... I mean these guys who probably waited for the stroke of midnight and bought out all 5000 passes to the game in likely the first 10 minutes of accepting orders... then purchased the $2-3000 hardware package to play the game... probably wouldn't be so upset by this.

im sure they would get homesick after a while... but a vast majority would be rather accepting of it..

It's exactly those two things (dying and no logout) that make SAO much less desirable as a game. Two of the biggest appeals of video games as an entertainment medium is the "second chance" notion where mistakes aren't permanent, and the "escape from reality" notion where you don't have to think about your problems while you're playing the game. Maybe for hardcore players like Kirito, it wasn't so bad. However, I believe Kirito also harbored a major sense of responsibility for the other players in the game that made it difficult for him to simply accept the situation. Not to mention his desire to learn about Kayaba's mindset when developing SAO.

No it just means, that not all of us were born as able you... Having a different body that can move and talk normally is a massive plus.


Well and the fact that no one judged you at all in the game. Real life isn't that great for some people..

Some of us are just as enthusiastic about video games, but still want to be with our families at the end of the day. I personally would probably go insane.

Also if we want to be realistic, all of the females you saw in the show probably represented ALL of the women in the game. Total sausage fest.

didn't one guy just ordered a pizza, would you really want to stay in a game if you had some pizza coming for you?
