Log Horizon has a similar plotline. The show gets much more interesting after 5 episodes in (attention grabber is not the best in the world).

.Hack//Sign series is your best bet, but log horizon would be a good 2nd choice.

Log Horizon and .Hack are both "trapped in an MMO" anime.

If you are willing to expand that to other "trapped in an alternate reality" scenarios, try:

Btooom
The Ambition of Oda Nobuna
The Devil is a Part Timer

If you want acton anime with some romance and drama thrown in, try:

A Certain Magical Index
Familiar of Zero
High School DxD (lots of nudity)
Dragonar Academy
Trinity Seven
Chaika the Coffin Princess
Kaze no Stigma

Besides those already mentioned I will recommend "Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?" http://www.crunchyroll.com/is-it-wrong-to-try-to-pick-up-girls-in-a-dungeon (Crunchy link).

It is similar to SaO but much better imo.

You could give Overlord a try all though it's not available on CR. It's one of those anime's that you need to watch at least a couple episodes but once you do your pretty much hooked.
