If fans don’t like the transition from Online Swordsmanship to Alfheim Online, their destiny is to despise Gun Gale Online for the same reasons. However, the events dedicated to this online shooter and those related to what took place in the original Sword Art Online prove that GGO is the perfect sequel.
One reason why some fans think Dot Hack is that Sword Art Online got it right, the switch to ALO may have changed the setting, character design and power system from SAO, but it still happened in a fantasy world with a magic system. Another plus point about ALO is that the most adorable characters in SAO will also later join Kirito in his adventures there. Like the first season of ALO, the only member of the original SAO team in GGO is Kirito, whose avatar is a girl no less. What’s worse is that GGO is set in the future with modern weapons, completely opposite to fantasy role-playing games like SAO.
The events of Gun Gale Online are completely unique
Kirito’s journey in Gun Gale Online is only possible within the cyberpunk setting of the series. Kirito’s ability to adapt to the Gun Gale setting using multiple variations of the type of weapon he’s used to for more than just serves as a fun way to show off his abilities. character adaptation. First, he is able to transform his chosen laser sword from what is considered the most useless weapon to one of the best. Second, Kirito’s natural return to swords is an expression of one of the arc’s most popular themes: that the characters and decisions they make in the game reflect the player’s true self. . Third, Kirito takes up the gun to win the final battle, which is ironic and can never translate well in ALO.
For the same reason, Gun Gale serves as the perfect sequel to the storyline in SAO involving the Laughing Coffin guild. The members of Laughing Coffin actively sought to kill their other players in the game with the awareness that the victim’s real body would also die. Since no one can actually die in any virtual reality games anymore, the surviving members of Laughing Coffin in GGO had to come up with unique ways to create the hint that they were killing other players. in game. Gun Gale’s introduction of a never-before-seen storyline to the Laughing Coffin guild further underscores the degree of willingness of its members to adapt to fulfill their wishes in such a different setting. Furthermore, their adaptability is another example of the overall theme of this section that players who play a certain way in one game will be the same in another regardless of the different games. how.
Sinon’s injury only works in the context of Gun Gale
In the end, Sinon’s personal journey couldn’t be recreated in a fantasy world like Online Sword Art or Alfheim. Sinon is traumatized by the fact that she was forced to kill an armed robber with a gun and tries to overcome her fear of guns being triggered whenever she sees one or someone making only hand movements through a shooting immersion in Gun Gale.
No one used swords, spells, or any other fantasy-based attack method in the real world. Sinon’s treatment in the game will have to be similar to her “trigger” in real life. Furthermore, the gun she used as a child also appears in the game. The fact that Sinon’s journey continues in Alfheim further proves Gun Gale Online because, like Kirito, she adapts to the fantasy world setting using the best of gun simulation weapons.
