Before someone does it, the routine questions.
.
Is it Harem?, is the MC OP?
.
Now what i am really curious, do you put it together with SAO, that is to say a not very defined gameplay, no classes/jobs, the mc can solo a boss or is more Log Horizon, well defined classes with skills for each one and often need a well balanced party for the final battles.

I always find it weird, why would anyone even trying to "return to their original world"? It's the fantasy world yo, you all play MMORPG because you want to live in that world or break away from the boring original world, and now that it's granted, you want to get back?? what the fuck?

and yeah, obligatory questions please~

I disagree in that I don't like a single game enough to be stuck in there forever. Sure I might put a lot of hours into something but I'll move on eventually. Wouldn't want to live there.

Second obligatory question asking if it has any strong SAO similarities other than initial premise *

uh, maybe for you but for some people VRMMO is just a temporary escape and/or recreation from real world and that's the kind of people who usually become protagonist of this kind of story not the loser neet type (though there are also novel with those type of MC if you search around).

If you want to see the pic without scrolling, a good way is to right click it, then open image on new tab.

Anyways, I there are some people that like being in it and others that don't, there are always pros and cons.

For example, modern everyday life is pretty convenient, where you don't have to fight or do any real 'heavy labor' and all that (safety and comfort being the biggest reason), but in an MMORPG setting, money is pretty easy to come by (if you can fight anyways). It's not all fun and games like it's made out to be -- lemme ask you, have you not died at least once, when playing a mmo game?

Well, in the case of Sky World, it seems it becomes a "real" world, meaning unlike SAO which is still a game, the game mechanics which limit immersion are removed and not have to worry about your real body, it becomes another world entirely.

The now popular Isekai Tensei WN most have loser MC though.

and what about you guys, if you were to be given a choice to go to a fantasy world, would you refuse?

The suicide rates is the highest in history though? The invisible enemies are more dangerous than visible ones.

Yes, the reincarnation one, not the transported one.

Yes I would refuse, unless the offer include ability to go back and forth and guarantee that I will not die horribly in those fantasy world. Practically, I'd welcome VR but I'm not naive enough to think that I, a modern world human, can survive in a realistic fantasy world. That's pure chuunibyou BS dream.

Depends on your employment, social life, past and how many people you care about left remaining in Real life.

AS for the survival bit well, depends on how "geared" you are,do you enjoy grinding xp and if their is a revival system, is Hp a thing etc,Not all mmos are purely combat, some of them have this sandbox thing going., open world pk would be the biggest concern.

The Real world isn't a paradise, thier is always a chance we will die when we least expect it, and depending on where in the Real world you live, it might actually be safer in an MMO.

You can't take that statement back you know~

Well, most of the time it will go the way it goes in Monster no Goshujin-sama or Berserk I bet, with all the mindbreaking stuffs.... But what of it, it's the risk that is attached to various activities even in this world, though people in conflict areas got the same risk even doing nothing...

so not wanting to go because of fear is kinda... boring

I'm fine with being boring, even though I like to read weird Japanese shits I don't mix delusion with reality.

By the way, you try to tell those people in conflict areas that they should stay in there because it's boring in safe zone. Alternatively, since you know that the danger in a realistic fantasy world is about the same with a conflict area you should try going there or heck, just go to an African savanna with nothing but your clothes on. That's "unboring" right?

This is assuming that you will gain all those abilities, what if you're just as you were in real world? Do you want to purposely go to a world where outside a town is constantly roamed with life-threatening monsters? You should try to become a national geographic crew or something if that fancy you (and even then, it's still infinitely safer).

What a witty comeback!

I'll be sure to deport any immigrants from conflict zones that I come across

Well, actually I had done that before, that part about going to the wild with only clothes on, yea..... it was..... exhilarating the thrill of being in the border of life and death, it was so fun~ Damn wild dogs, snakes, and steep cliffs... Nature tried to kill me but it failed horribly

I feel you didn't read my post completely,as your response only seems geared to a specific part of what i said.

What if scenarios are pretty bad in my opinion as it will be an ongoing topic of what ifs.

What if you were a child, in the middle of a civil war, your mom was gang raped and murdered, and you were forced to slavery, for a rebel army and dig in a very unsafe mine where you could die any day, in order to fund "blood diamonds".In certain countries.

The key point here is what game, what situation you are in, and your mental state in regards to your surrounding. Transporting is safest one vs reincarnating, so it depends which we have available.

Then a fantasy world might be perfect for you. But replace wild dogs, snakes and steep cliffs with 3 M monsters and poison swarm.

I've read your post. Geared to assuming that those xp and whatcamalit exist, I already said that sure I'd like to get to fantasy world if I was given the choice if there's some sort of guarantee about safety, mental state mean zilch if I don't have those lv, exp or whatever mechanic of that fantasy world (or maybe you do have it in real world?). The "going to fantasy world!" is already a what if scenario so questioning the what if is puzzling.

However I see now that most seem to imagine that if the situation happen to them then they would be the protagonist of the story and they will always got through every situation just like the novel they read. Well, nothing is wrong with that, chuuni isn't harmful as long as they don't act it on other people irl.

First of all notice who i quoted, he mentioned mmorpg dangers not fantasy world, so i used that a basis for my comments.

Because what ifs can be infinite, so you can literally go on and on talking back and forth and it will never end, your view atm is narrowed to going the fantasy world with what if negative scenarios, I'm talking about the varying factors around it that influence the pros and cons of going.

Er that doesn't really apply to me, at least from what i intended to talk about.

A Person wanting to go into another world or game world doesn't make them a Chuuni. Also keep in mind not all mmo's are violent content, which was why i mentioned sandbox earlier.
