Mainly looking for ones where: 1. The MC isn't an a**hole 2. Women are treated as people capable of intelligent, rational, independent thought. (Bonus points if MC is female and there's no ML) 3. The MC isn't a loner 4. The game is just a game. No saving the real world, secret alien plots, finding kidnapped loved ones trapped in the game, etc. 5. The MC actually spends time outside the game 6. The MC can, occasionally, lose 7. The game feels like something that real people would willingly pay money to play 8. The MC has to actually work for their gains rather than being the bastard child of the Goddess of Luck or whatever 9. Available online, in English, legally, for free I'm fine with stories listed here, royalroad, Wordpress or wherever, so long as there's no paywalls.
