I will admit to having watched both series (haven't finished Log Horizon but has finished SAO to it's most recent point) and while finding fault in both I can say I don't regret watching either, it was good.

Hearing from a lot of people around me, I've noticed a trend that both of these series are seriously hated on alot (the vitriol I've seen for these series both online and in person is amazing...) and I've found it's fair share of diehard fans, some of which is almost blindingly so to said faults of the shows.

So objectively speaking, which is better: Sword Art Online or Log Horizon? And I don't want to hear the "They're too different to compare!" thing, yes one is a bit more action oriented than the other and one is more of a mystery/comedy, anyone can see that. I mean from the concept of the "Trapped in a digital world" that at this point is becoming it's own genre, how do that along with story (can you make full sense of the narrative) characters, and the world this all plays out in.

Objectively you say?

I see. I will keep my potentially insulting comments to myself, and simply laugh.

Kirito-kun would wreck that MC.

He would just die and respawn and put glass in Kirito's food.

This topic does come up from time to time, and since we already have a thread for it, I've closed this one and ask that you share your thoughts in that existing thread:

/forumtopic-836965/sword-art-online-or-log-horizon

While you've asked folks to assess which is better "objectively" rather than simply which they prefer, it would probably help steer discussion in that direction more if you shared some of your own assessment of some of the criteria you think can be evaluated objectively to come up with an answer. Having thought about it, is there one you are leaning toward being "better" than the other?
