    I mostly read bl gaming novels so I can't comment on most gaming novels except the more popular ones... but I think mangas are better in that aspect. I really enjoyed 1/2 prince and recently, solo leveling but if you wanna explore a whole new world of danmei tho I can recc you some novels with elements of gaming that I really enjoyed :blobowoevil:

    I like LMS, even though it became very different than how it was in the first 25 volumes.
    RSSG probably has the best world building of any gaming novel, I just wish the author had more confidence in his work and went back to releasing longer chapters instead of one action/conversation chapters. It realm seems like the author is about to abandon a good story.
    I'm currently letting chapters build up for eFate: an MMO story.

    Yeah, LMS is too long
    If it was an epic or had multiple protagonists then I would understand eg Game of Thrones
    Any story would lose its way if it is too long
    A sequel or a prequel with a different protagonist would have been better just like it is done in Gundam series

    Have to add one more as this recently got picked up again. Virtual World: Peerless White Emperor, this would probably be my favorite if the author was as funny as he thought he was and actually used new jokes instead of repeating jokes well passed the point of them being funny to the point of them being annoying.

    yall gotta read solo-leveling altho it might quite the classic plot, weak mc turned OP --> super OP but i really enjoyed the manga and I'm so excited that the novel has been picked up... however its by webnovels so.,,, not optimistic about future locked chapters orz but its a good read(the manga ofc)

    I tried getting into it a few times. I might try again once I don't have anything to read.

    Your finger seemed to have slipped from the 'G' to 'B' so I fixed that for you. No need to thank me!

    No no no. Girl Love of course. Female on female love to save the world. It also is the way to perfect standard harems. A guy might have many women, but they should also love one another. This is the sacred path.

    Translating is also a way for the translators to practice the language. Thats certainly the case with the translators in the group that I'm in.

    Hmmm.. I guess I just wanted to do something for the novels I love, especially if it's a less popular novel/author! And of course, to drag more people into the BL abyss! :hmm:
