until technology that's similar to nerve gear is invented, there will never be a game as epic as SAO

there's too huge a difference between playing a game and living in one


that's how it is you won't have experience of game like Sao for a long time, where you control everything by brain. For now they are trying to do virtual reality but that's much different from how it is presented here, and controls there are linked to body movement instead of brain control.
I wonder if concept that is made up in Sao will ever be possible.

As for Sao mmo part, you are going around killing things doing quest (although in novel there is a quest which was done by Kirito at the start, and he spend 3-4 hours killing flowers creatures and was waiting for one rare mob which was nessesery for quest, He did it right at the begining when pretty much everyone was still in the Starting City) great right killing mobs for hours just to get a quest done, also he did it when he was alone there. There is more information about this quest as later we find out that players take a full week to do this quest).
Apart from quest we have boss fights, which could be interesting, It can have a lot of different mechanics but after boss is clearned he is no more so we have one raid that can kill him and that's all, rest of players would never get them.


Anyway this part was unessesery as what we want is VRMMO :) Well I will live for another 50-70 years or so If something stiupid doesn't happen so I hope by the time I die something like this will exist :)

Are you talking about the novel or SAO game?

Guts, known as the Black Swordsman, seeks sanctuary from the demonic forces attracted to him and his woman because of a demonic mark on their necks, and also vengeance against the man who branded him as an unholy sacrifice. Aided only by his titanic strength gained from a harsh childhood lived with mercenaries, a gigantic sword, and an iron prosthetic left hand, Guts must struggle against his bleak destiny, all the while fighting with a rage that might strip him of his humanity.

Vindictus is a MMORPG I started playing after I watched Sword Art. I also felt like playing one after watching this anime :P. I really enjoy playing vindictus and it's a easy game to get into. It's very high graphic, not point and click, and pretty fun. The game reminds me of PSO-BB if you've ever played that.

Ragnarok Online(may be a bit old for those into high 3D spec gamers, but the gameplay is what's important), for those 100 floors the Endless Tower would be a good choice but it only has a Boss Monster every 5 floors and if you're truly up for the challenge you could try clearing it by yourself(a few have succeeded).And if ever an international server comes out anytime soon then Ragnarok 2: Legend of the Second would be a good bet.

DragonNest maybe?

as i know World of Warcraft is the only game that looks like SAO
you can be a Fury-Warrior and wear 2 blades like Kirito
and there is pets to tame like Keiko
and professions to learn like cooking,blacksmith,mining

but you can't solo :(


Either that or rogue who can also dual wield, and from how Kirito is depicted you can tell he is purely dps in the series

..but yeh wow...skims your life and money away

Kirito's recent fight with the Glean Eyes reminded me of MapleStory.

They just created a job that specialises in breaking the damage cap, literally. It has literally solo'ed every boss possible in the entire game. (For those who actually play or had played, Zakum now takes 4 seconds to solo for that job.)

Great game for those who wants to be a Solo player.

But, of course, that game is a fail in every department when compared to SAO, its 2D, basically scroller-platform... and lacks actual PvP (or at least, what they call PvP doesn't even PK, but then again, with all those rampant damage numbers...)

SAO is too simplistic a game for MMORPGs to adopt. Not that its SAO's fault (VRMMORPGs are another whole level), but... you just can't replicate it over. At least, not in its entirely.

The closest thing that we could expect is the upcoming Otherland, based upon the best-selling novels of Tad Williams that have similar premise to SOA (the storyline of the books being about a next-generation virtuality-mmorpg used by mysterious people to trap and manipulate the players who logged in into it).

Concept-wise there are quite a few upcoming melee-based mmo games(like Swordsman Online, which is reminds me a bit of the fighting in SOA), but, IMO, its the concept of virtuality and self-awareness that makes SOA unique and hard to repeat in real "mmo".
Otherwise nope, nothing of that sort out there.

Play Guild Wars 2.
Yes... you can wield 2 Swords if you're a Warrior. Or a Greatsword.
The game launched few days ago, i'm already lvl 42/80.

Yes, and there are no monthly fees.

You, my friend, have yet to see more than one mmo it appears.

This. Also I saw a complete Baka say "GW2 has no action combat". It's hot key based! That means about as much action as you can get without forcing a controller on people. It is certainly not an rpg in terms of combat controls. (you won't find any real actiOn mmos, they all revolve around rpg mechanics somewhat).
Anyway, GW2 is certainly innovating mmo design to make a fun game.
Now if you wanted to play SAO you would need to find a kind of badly designed game, since there aren't many exciting features in SAO. I'd recommend just going for a bog standard mmo pile runescape, although jrpgs like aion and lineage 2 (latter has terribly Grundy gameplay and bots galore).

WoW + Dragon Nest = SOA.

WoW graphics, profession and dragon nest game style.

The problem is what kind of MMO would implement a unique skill.
Everyone else would like to have it and most probably it'll be an
item shop skills that only a single person can acquire.
It'll costs a lot of money that you'll eventually shit bricks just to have it.

Ragnarok Online, Iris Online is the closest thing i can think of any resemblance with SAO.

Gameplay wise, you should try Dark Souls, although it wasn't MMORPG, it has online multiplayer aspect and death is... you can say, punishing. Dark Souls got many of SAO combat aspect, like blocking before you attack, dodging attacks by rolling, bosses that could kill you easily if you don't pay any attention, etc etc.

Gleam Eyes = Baphomet
Labyrinth = Prontera's Hidden Temple/Labyrinth Forest(which is coincidentally where you will find Baphomet just like Gleam Eyes)
Heathcliff = Crusader
Starburst Stream = Guillotine Cross' Cross Impact or Assassin's Sonic Blow
SAO = Endless Tower

Ragnarok Online is definitely the closest.

I don't think Guild Wars 2 is similar, but it would be the best mix right now. A very successful MMORPG that is just released, added with a very hyped anime, and it's probably one of the best hedonistic experience for the average MMORPG anime fan (like moi). I will get GW2 in a few days I think. Haven't "bought" a game for like... ever.

I recommend you World of Warcraft, that way you can stay away from actual interesting titles such as Eve Online.
WoW is also ridicously easy, so you'll have no problems fitting in with all the 1337 kidz and h4xX0rs.

I remember when I used to play Ragnarok Online and try to impress people and be the strongest in the server. I still facepalm about it.

This anime takes me back a little to good old times in FFXI when I was playing that game.

SAO makes every MMO on the market look terrible in comparison.

While SAO has a grind, and the most unimaginative sort in the form of 100f tower, it's a relatively open world where you can go off to explore or do other stuff on your own. It reminds more of Everquest than most current games on the market.

For the people saying Maple Story. Maple Story is platform game-style, in other words, 100% NOT like SAO.
