    Lets say its the Year 2030 and we have the ability to actually full dive into video games.Exactly as shown in the popular anime SAO except that took place in 2023 i think....

    My question is this, who among you would join a real life SAO? Thats right im talking about not being able to log out and trapped within the virtual world of Aincrad and the only way to exit the game is to clear all 100 floors!

    How many of you would actually be up for something like this. Forget about your job,family and friends and willingly enter a game that could result in your death in the real world. If you die in the VR game world ofcourse!

    The only slight change to this version of SAO is the fact that you cannot kill other players in game or else you die yourself immediately and effectively.

    its also important to note that just like in the anime, things like food and water are edible and all those real life necessities wont affect your actual body.

    So thoughts? opinions?

    Would you join a real life VR death game?

    And before anyone asks me if im high! I am not lol. Im just curious as to who would actually be down with something as insane as this

    No. I have better things to do than risk my life in a 2d anime game.

    I would love if there were no consequences >,< . Something like this (minus death) would be so cool!

    I would. I don't much care for VR, but the tech shown in SAO is way better (albeit further away than normal VR). Definitely would be amazing to experience.

    Edit: I missed the "not being able to logout but able to die" bit. If so, then no thanks. Nobody sane would chose that.

    You wouldn't know it would trap you on launch though. So knowing myself, I would really want to try it. But wouldn't be able to afford it at launch anyways. So I would've missed getting trapped. Lol.

    I'd do it. The real world is shit anyway, I need a change. I probably wouldn't even try to clear the game, I'd just be the dude walking around town looking cool and then farm boars and sell their meat for money.
