Hi everyone! I discovered this LitRPG genre thanks to a co-worker and got powerfully hooked. Is it sci-fi, you say? Well, it depends. Most of LitRPGs take place in a game, so it's usually a videogame, which presumes some level of sci-fi technology, such as virtual reality and AI. So it definitely counts as a softcore sci-fi. However the settings is usually a D&D-like fantasy. A technology sufficiently advanced... you know. Here's what I have read so far. No big losers yet, but I'm careful with what I pick for reading. Michael Chatfield - Emerilia 6 of 6 85 % - really liked it! Good for starters in the genre. Lots of sci-fi elements and drama. Aleron Kong - The Land 6 of 6 books read 99 % - love it! Michael Scott Earle - Lion's quest 3 of 3 90 % - love it! Way of the Shaman 5 of 6 90 % - love it! The Weirdest Noob 1 of 2 80 % - parodies the Shaman and a few other litRPGs, but good reading NPCs 2 of 3 80 % - this is the only pen & paper D&D LitRPG I've seen so far. Close to normal fantasy. Overlord Light Novel (anime adaptation) 90 % Kono subarashii sekai ni shukufuku wo! (Anime adaptation, 2 seasons so far) 85 % Bathrobe Knight 1 of 4 Too early to judge. Feels a lot like classical fantasy or drama. Slime Dungeon 3 of 3 80 % - Great read, but lots of typos! First dungeon LitRPG I've read. The books feel like a really good amateur story. Lots of fun with ideas, but less realism and description of environment. Divine Dungeon 2 of 3 90 % - love it! It is exactly the same sub-genre of a LitRPG as Slime Dungeon, the authors are friends actually. Much fewer typos than Slime Dungeon, more professional, I think. The main hero is also the dungeon spirit and his trusty dungeon wisp/fairy, eating adventurers and devouring their mana. The first book feels like a rip-off of SD, but you'll soon get over the beginnings.
