      "Let's say you love anime, as I do, and video games (yep, me too). In that case you're definitely going to want to watch Swort Art Online. It's a stylish take on the dark side of video game technology that lets you enter your avatar and move as yourself in game space. Highly recommended, on Netflix with English and Japanese audio."

While some describe it as a bit underwhelming, I think this show is great for MMORPG fans, but don't expect TONS of monsters, etc. I think it has more depth than some shows that rely on too much fluff, etc."

      "Overlord is an extremely good Video Game anime for the genre. The characters are over powered but the show plays around with that. And shifts focus to the story and characters. If you were only going to watch one episode, I would watch season 1 episode 3 as it is easy to jump into and that episode is where things really start getting fun."

Sure, it's chock full of adventure, drama, and monster-smashing, but a person has to draw the line between 'fantasy anime' and 'gaming anime' somewhere. There are better animes out there if your main focus is video games - you can give this one a try, but be sure to prepare yourself for possible disappointment."
