This story consists of an MC in a Xianxia world allowing the people to play virtual reality versions of games in our world. The story consists of people threatening to destroy his shop for having such high prices, then of people trying to buy his computers, then giving in and dragging more people to play with them. Every chapter or so, this cycle repeats. It's funny at first, but it gets redundant and repetitive.

The MC doesn't have much development or show much about him other than he likes playing games.... more>> This is also true for the other characters but with some trashy family drama common to Chinese novels thrown in.

As for story development or world background, there really isn't much more than what I've said.

Another weakness this series has is when it makes shocking comments about girls getting easier gaming modes or needing to avoid horror and gore games. This is jarring and throws me out of what I'm reading. I love horror and gore. I've dissected human cadavers and assisted with surgeries on living people. What does being a girl have to do with anything?... Of course, even I have to admit that the female characters in the world of this web novel are even more annoying than the male characters, which is really saying something.

Anyway, although this is entertaining at first, I'm not sure how much longer it can keep my attention. <<less

People may want to give this novel a try when they see the ridiculous premise, but the synopsis is a bit of a misdirection. People in a traditional cultivator world drinking Sprite and saying "What is this sorcery?" sounds hilarious, but in practice it's mostly about the customers playing existing games from the real world on the cafe computers and talking about them.

Like the novel Terror Infinity, there's a lot of unprofessional borrowing of other intellectual properties. All the more so here, the writing itself is poor and can't stand... more>> on its own two legs, so it talks about Resident Evil 1 for thirty chapters. And then Diablo 2 after that. It may be that you have nostalgic feelings for both of those games that will easily carry you through these chapters. But what about when you don't? When they start to talk about the plot points and characters of The Legend of Sword and Fairy, a Chinese-only game I had never heard of, my eyes were glazing over with disinterest. This was before chapter 100. A bad sign.

There's a line between referencing the games that are being played, and making your novel crossover fan-fiction. I think that line is crossed when the protagonist is rewarded with a Resident Evil T-virus to inject himself with outside of the game. I don't want to read another series where everyone is using magical techniques stolen from some other writer's copyrighted material. Besides, a good novel about managing an internet cafe should either not focus on the games themselves so much, or if it does, it should invent its own games, instead of saying "Remember fighting Andariel?" (Sort of.) "Remember that time when Xiaoyao went to the Devil-Locking Tower?" (No, I never played that.)

There are other signs of weak writing. Characters are introduced far faster than they can become memorable, causing the cast to spiral out of control with a bunch of names I can't remember. By chapter 100 there are about as many characters, and many of their names routinely come up, but only 3 or 4 of these people are even slightly distinct. Each time a new customer is introduced, the whole process is repeated of them reacting to the computers and games, and it feels very formulaic.

World-building is slow and shallow. The presence of the cafe would have been funnier if we knew more about the setting it was contrasting with. But we're not even really told much off the bat about what the limits are in their fantasy world. It also seems to make little sense how anything works; the players are immersed in full VR while also being able to see and chat with the people around them in the cafe at any given moment. They just seem to always be paying attention to the world around them when there's a reason to be, and you're not expected to think about it.

It's a very funny idea for a novel, but there's no lasting appeal. I don't recommend it. <<less

Well I read ahead on the chinese version

so like typical chinese novel, the same thing is going to happen over and over again:
Open Internet Cafe->Local Populace Impressed->Some Power want to ban/disturb the business->Face Slap/Kick Ass->Esport Tournament->Move to new area->Repeat

Most of the LN is just the local populace reacting to the new game/movie and learning skills and other thing from it

... more>> the story is funny to read how the local populace react to modern technology and space tech

but it's not funny when the store get chinese game/movie as those are only the same as the world they are in only more OP, so local populace only see them as immortal/god cultivator and the reaction is not that interesting

things I have problem with-Massive spoiler ahead :

Spoiler
  1. The MC got Infinite Rocket Launcher from Resident Evil in Real Live but only used it once, and never mentioned again in the story.
  2. The MC got Pegassi Osiris (GTA V car) in Real Live, ride it once to pick up Jiang Xiaoyue (his first employee) from school and never mentioned again.
  3. Some of the customer win Real life version of Terran Pirate Ship (Capital Pirate ship?) and Protoss Scout from StarCraft 2 then The East World (Wuxia/chinese world) got invaded by western power (Europe/Western Fantasy) so they go to war but the super advanced ship from starcraft is not even mentioned/used or it's mentioned once and I missed it, but for some reason the local populace's refiner/blacksmith manage to built a giant railgun to shot the invader, oh and for some reason Ghost Sniper Rifle (the other StarCraft 2 Real Life version given as reward from esport) can shot nuke, even though there is no nuke silo given as reward
  4. The MC cultivation is weak, but he can sync with the game char to gain their power, I don't know how human Ezio from Assassin Creed 2 can beat Master Assassin from Western Fantasy (he is in Western World in this Arc)
  5. The new Western Fantasy world is described as World of Warcraft like (human, elf, orc, dwarf, etc), but then the new game is the World of Warcraft game itself, so Elf playing as Elf, human paladin played as human paladin, the orc pick orc like WTF. But hey the Wuxia guys is picking more interesting choice like some guy become undead or Tauren chief

It's a good read. Not the best, but I can confidently say we have all read worse novels.

  • This novel is a solid 4.1
Here's why:

Although it sounds at times you are being regurgitated an specific X game walkthrough, and the novelty in which it is narrated is not exciting, if you are a gamer; you will like it.

... more>> If you read previously Gourmet of Another World - or any other related 'system in cultivator world' kind of novel, this is for you.

It's an intriguing take, but a somehow overused genre.

If you want my honest score without filters, sure, is 2.6

I gave this novel a 4.1 on the hopes it gets better. (And because I'm giving high scores as of late to novels that are not 'Nationalist' *cough* 89% of novels on QI* cough* <<less

Read this to the end.

This novel is fantastic till the end.

The epilogue is bittersweet, but the final battle is very disappointing.

It's also weird how the world has cultivators and there is immortality in the novel, but the MC never cultivates nor does he want to cultivate.

The little demon who he traps is also forgotten...

It's supprisingly good! It’s a fresh change to the usual boring cliche Chinese novels with ruthless anti-heros and jade skins female clones.

I’m only 200ish chapters in, so I don’t know how the author will keep things interesting, but so far, it’s been hilarious and addicting for me.

I tend to reserve five stars for exceptional stories but this one is definitely closer to five than four for me. I don't tend to like stories with comedy, so finding one with such a comedic focus that I don't simply enjoy but really like is very rare. The story does tend to be repetitive at times and that's only 67 chapters in. Even so, I'm having fun with every chapter. I like how every now and then you get a bit of info on the larger world, while the... more>> focus remains on the shop. Out of the stories I'm reading on webnovel, it's one of my favorites already. <<less

So far, it's good, but as the ship gains more customers and enemies the name memorizing is getting more difficult...

Very good novel. Modern games with real life benefits are introduced to cultivation world. Cultivators and martial artists got addicted to games. I am guessing they will probably stop destroying the sect of their enemies for stupid reasons in real life as they can pvp and guild war in the games. Spoiler: Pay 2 win incoming.

j/k, it's just RMT.

This novel is about a guy who finds himself in a body of a guy from a cultivation world. One day he wakes up and gets a system which allows him to start a cafe where cultivators come to eat, drink, and enjoy VR experiences of our favorite video games, TV shows, and movies. Along the way he will progress his cultivation while getting various skills and equipment of the game/movie/TV show characters. Seriously guys, this novel is awesome. It kind of reminds me of Gourmet in Another World, except better. Seeing the culture shock of these ancient cultivators being exposed to these video games, movies, and TV shows is hilarious and very entertaining. The main character is given certain cheats that allow him to protect himself,... more>> but still provides a sense of urgency where we want him to power up his cultivation and techniques. Although this is mainly about the cafe and the interactions between customers, there are still some pretty epic battles as well later on. I've read up to about chapter 550 of the raw using the mtl so while I don't know all the details, I do know most of the important stuff regarding this novel. The games can get a little bit repetitive in regards to how things play out, but I still continue to find it very entertaining. My BIGGEST problem with this novel is the sheer amount of characters that are introduced that we are expected to remember. I swear, in the current chapters I'm reading, I only know who, like, half of the characters are. Yes the mtl does make it harder to remember people but I wanna say there are like 30+ reoccurring characters to keep track of (and that's a conservative estimate). Some characters, such as Song Qingfeng, show up regularly so I know who they are, however, some characters that only pop in once in a while leave me racking my brain trying to remember them. Also some characters get dropped and completely forgotten, as if the author realised there were too many characters to juggle and so he got rid of some. Yeah, it can be annoying for sure but not big enough to make the novel bad by any means.

Highly recommended read if you enjoy novels such as Gourmet in Another World but don't expect constant action or romance. <<less

I should have waited longer before starting this one. This novel is a fun concept so far. I recommend it, but I also recommended waiting for a few hundred chapters to get translated before starting.

Sorry bad English.

A 4☆ story for me.

Have u imagine 2 master with their disciples have a match in CS?

... more>> A cultivator crying after playing Silent Hill 2?

Or 2 old-master feel happy after find unique-item in Diablo 2?

A Good and refreshing story, different with other system-admin novel. MC isn't the type who seek trouble, harem seeker idiot, but a calm and mature. No fighting all the way to Ancestor, MC got underestimated but not too much like other novel.

Not all young master idiot in this novel, in fact many of them have a brain, even when..

Spoiler

one of the young master seek trouble in his shop, then MC just kick him out with lightning. Later, he come back with pal, kick out again, come again with his aunt that curious with MC shop kicked again by his aunt this time... and he blacklisted, but still come again to watch, comment, and analysis. But feel really sad bc he cannot play and eat snack.

[collapse]

Face smacking is there but not go-too much, mob/other chara got smacked but they didn't have blood grude with MC.

Romance none.

Funny reaction when cultivator/warrior first-time playing Game immersive-VR.

And...

Spoiler

The shop began it first Esport competition, Diablo 2 (duel) and CS (team) with prize real item from game.

[collapse]

As for what the shop sale...

Spoiler

●snack: haagen-dazs ice cream, sprite, coke, instant noodles, spicy.

●game: Resident Evil 1 (remake VR), Diablo 2 (Remake VR), CS (VR), the Legend of sword and fairy (remake VR), Silent Hill 2 (Remake VR)

●Movie: Resident Evil (super theatre)

●TV series : zhu xian and one more (i forgot the title)

[collapse]

If u feel bored with other sytem novel, read this and enjoy. <<less

bro, if you like ridiculous novels, full of narrations and povs, and... honestly I have no words to describe it, read this novel.
I'm not a person who likes to make reviews, and long novels are looks with disdain for me, but this ridiculously great and addictive, I'm glad to be on vacation.
Spoiler

post data: the first chapters (more than 30 in reality) are about resident devil, he talks so much about it that it makes you doubt if this was not a novel about the game.
