Sometimes I wonder how Kayaba would come off if he was just some wizard who teleported a bunch of people to an alternate dimension and told them "Defeat the demon lord and the path home will open!"

I can't speak for anyone else in this thread, but I've never claimed that anything Kayaba did was justified. Merely attempted to explore, explain, and understand why and what things seemed like from his point of view.

And how the other characters relate to him in universe. The final episode makes it rather clear that many of the SAO survivors love and cherish their memories and time spent in that other world, and couldn't wait to go back. Are they all just selfish jerks, for finding joy in something that brought undue suffering to others?
