First I would like to rebuke the review by AsTheNameDic. I feel that reading the whole thing would let you understand the context and the feelings between the ML and the MC better because it's not as it seems. This book is very easy to mtl. The translator is also doing a great job, btw.
    1. It was not MC fault that the childhood friend died. They were arguing and MC rushed on to the road in the heat of his anger and a car suddenly came so it was an accident not within MCs control hence not his fault.
    1. Of course MC is a weak chicken goddamn! It's his second copy what was supposed to happen, he magically gain power and strength. He is a streamer for gods sake... more>> the MC mentioned it himself that he was physically weak. Also SY has more experience then him so of course he would be better then MC. Also there is nothing wrong with trying to hug the thighs of stronger players, it is a setting of when you die you die no second chances. (Unless of course you have a live streaming channel) It was SY choice to help him.
    1. I don't fault MC for assuming that SY is his childhood best friend cause they look the same if the childhood friend had not died 7 years ago. Not to mention that after the car accident MC has trauma from it and is still living in the shadow of the childhood friends death. So forgive him if a person looking identical to his dead friend shows up and he freaks out.
The relationship between the MC and the ML is really cute. They have a equal relationship and depend on each other. Their relationship is not instantaneous but is built overtime with struggles and good memories.

The plot is also very interesting. Usually I am not a big fan of the horror genre but this novel is the perfect mix of horror and comedy mostly by the MC and his friend Tang Mian Mian. Their commentaries are hilarious. The plot is quite solid and easy to follow even when mtling and it would make a good novel even if the BL elements are not present. The BL is just a added bonus.

The good news is that MC becomes stronger after more copies and can actually hold his own but he is still a weak chicken compared to SY. <<less

Not the first attempt at writing review for this one. But the need to vent a little is real. Can't compliment the writing, it is messy as if being descriptive yet compact will kill people. Can't compliment horror, since it's messy too. Can't compliment romance, since.. With 50 chapters in I start wondering why I care more about comradery with Mianmian instead of ML.

Although I'm never against BL not being the center of attention, on the contrary those are my favorite type of novels, but with every novel I like... more>> to see some kind of purpose or objective, something that will help to keep reading. Yet GLS gives me a hard time.

Is it romance? Well, I doubt it atm. ML appears way later, foreshadowing him being the dead guy doesn't help with getting your feelings for them going. Especially in comparison with MC and support comradery. The 'care' or should we call it 'help' during the 2nd instance when ML's team says they won't give a damn if they die or not and ML goes and actually saves MC could be interpreted as nothing more than 'care' actually. With current turn of events they're again in an instance where ML is absent. Usually authors try to incorporate ML in some way, even if it's subtle, but I could care less about these two. And MC's pining doesn't help.

Is it horror? I love horror games, though mostly watching ppl play them, but have seen enough to say that this one is messy. Firstly, the 'difficulty' level. I have a big question towards the difficulty, because I basically see no difference between instances, more than that I think amusement park instance is way more dangerous than the one in the castle, while they're supposed to be 'worlds apart' since the author set that. Secondly, the 'rules'. You might expect some rules to be applied, that's understandable, but applied and broken without repercussion seems weird. You might think - why setting them in the first place and you'll be right. Thirdly, the 'mission', how those missions were cleared is beyond me.

To me logic left for pension in some bits and left me with nothing but unanswered questions, like:

    • MC finds everything and veterans sound like noobs instead;
    • Veteran players don't do anything remotely veteran'y to progress the plot;
    • How players are selected, while MC and support installed the game, others seem unlikely to ever touched it;
    • MC sounds like a chosen one, but what makes him that;
    • ML is supposed to be the 1st gen, but he died only 7 years ago, considering that ppl on Earth should have panicked from all the cases of missing ppl;
    • What's the point of making demons part of the story where basically demons are way above in strength and to get back home is to defeat the undefeatable. Like I want to know how this will be solved heh.
Tbh I read based on principle of let's see how this will be wrapped. But makes me doubtful to continue into 'games' genre. <<less

I got fed up in late in the second arc. The prologue and first arc seemed decent enough despite the lack of game rule logic, but the second arc is just the MC's group running away from things, then stopping to look at things (optional vomitting mainly by Tang Mianmian if they're investigating corpses) and random exposition that's mostly unnecessary, then more running away. Oh, and still no logic.

The running would be understandable if it was in the first arc, since they don't have any powers. But they have the... more>> golden thighs of Shen Yuan (presumably ML) and his team in the second arc, and they're still running away from things. I know it's an S-level copy, but you'd think he'd be more capable... ? Gary Stu MC is usually the one providing exposition on the situation or making progress as well, instead of the supposedly advanced players on Shen Yuan's team.

The author handwaves away the lack of logic with their own logic that "they're ghosts", said in-universe by several characters. IMHO that's horrible writing, especially since oftentimes the rulebreaks occur just for shock value. At least if the rules are broken, the author should have written some discernible trigger as to why. It wouldn't have been too hard, like saying "the barrier wore down and finally broke, so the ghost could enter" or something. It's even mentioned in the first arc that people enter the Abyss by playing video games, so it's not farfetched to assume that the Abyss is a game as well (albeit one where you can die) so there should be some logic. (There isn't, if you've read my word vomit. And from the other reviews, it doesn't seem like there's an explanation for this either further down the line.)

The author can't go a chapter in the second arc without mentioning "Shen Yuan's team won't help us (MC and Mianmian) because we're inexperienced players, I know that". Though Shen Yuan still indirectly helps MC in other ways (even outright saving him during the one rulebreak ghost encounter at night), MC still keeps on telling himself that. It gets annoyingly repetitive. So does TMM's retching continuing into the second arc, but that's a bit more acceptable when his character setting is a wimp.

From what I've seen in someone else's review, which means I don't know how truthful it is, but the ending is... really bad. I mean,

Spoiler

way to cheapen the entire story with the amnesiac ending. That's one of the biggest pitfalls when it comes to writing, and it seems this author didn't read the manual... or pay attention in class, even. All the growth and experience of the characters throughout the story just wash away at the end, and everything they went through was for nothing in the end. Might as well not have read the novel at that point, huh.

[collapse]

I'm not holding out hope if the writing's going to continue to be this bad. I'm being generous with 2 stars, but only because the premise, and prologue and first arc, was okay. (Doesn't seem like the set up will have a satisfying payoff, if any, though.)

tldr; only the prologue + first arc is kind of worth reading, though there's no sweet BL that you probably came here for. <<less

Five stars for me.

Our MC is just like us. I believe that his actions in the game are very humane, much like how we would react. He's not overpowered with cheats or something.

The ML is a very interesting character. Sure, at first our MC mistook him for his dead bestfriend since they really look alike but as the story goes on, you also just can't help but think

... more>> "Is there really a conncection between the ML and the best friend?"

But then as I approached the last few chapters, I was like: "Ohhh! Ohhhhhhh my gosh! So that's why?!"

o mini spoiler about the ML's connection

Spoiler

yes, there's a connection between them

[collapse]

o huge spoiler about the connection and ML's identity

Spoiler

The ML is just a character created by the bestfriend and in a way they are one.

[collapse]

o the effing twist at the end (huge spoiler)

Spoiler

So, the 'game' is actually created by the mother of the ML. The purpose of the game is to try and stimulate the brainwaves of the ML since he's in a vegetative state.

The ML seemed to be not aware that he's in a game but whenever he becomes aware and wants to escape, the 'machine' releases some type of gas that makes him lose his memories.

All in all, everything about the Abyss is all created by the ML, he controls everything there since it is especially made for him.

Once the ML appears back on reality, all the players also woke up.

The only difference is that they have no memory of it while oir MC and ML remember.

Now here it come, here it comes.

The MC received a call from his best friend (the streamer) Mian Mian and his best friend is asking our MC to play the game named Abyss.

The MC suspiciously inquires about the game and looked at the ML

Then the ML teases our MC and begins to acts like everything is still an illusion.

Because before the ML went to reality, he placed our MC in an illusion where he didn't get hit by a car, or he did get hit but survive.

So now, with the ML acting like: "how do you know that this is real?" to our MC

I'm just sitting here going wtf 'did the MC really leave the game? Is this really reality?'

Now I am left with questions and am wondering: "What will happen once the MC plays the game again?"

[collapse]

SUPER SPOILER (ABOVE) THIS WILL LEAVE YOU WANTING TO VOMIT BLOOD *laughs*

All in all, this novel is a good read for me. It's interesting and new. The plot twist really gave me something to think about in the next upcoming days. <<less

I feel like this novel is on the verge of being really good, but the initial two arcs are very unsatisfying to read. The characters are surprisingly annoying and hard to root for and there's not enough logic in the game segments or explanations for things to make sense. To expand:

    1. The characters.
        1. MC is honestly okay. He's seems like a very sensible, grounded, and decent human being. He could also be considered relatively smart. But the way the author writes his thoughts... there's a lot of repetition. Sometimes, it's just unnecessarily lengthy. Also, it's hard to appreciate his smart because it seems like he's not actively deducing rather than being corralled into finding clues by luck. Half of the arcs seem to be him and his BF running away from dangers only to find themselves somewhere they find something important.
        1. His BF is... cute but so annoying. He just yells stuff a lot about things he sees and that scares him. All the time. His reactions don't really add much except words because they rarely reveal information to reader they don't know and they don't build upon his character. He also hasn't shown any growth. I think he's there for comedic relief, but he's... not particularly funny.
        1. The ML is fine? Tbh, can't really... more>> pass judgement on him since I don't know too much. He seems fine though (typically OP and stoic), but at least I feel good towards him from what I've read.
            1. Secondary characters are all annoying and don't seem to have redeeming qualities (yet).
            1. The game.
                1. Another review said this: the difficulty levels don't make sense. They are honestly always about to die. From D difficulty to S difficulty. Literally, all the dangers they find seem to be about to kill them. They're just always running. The characters aren't empowered in any capacity or given tools by the games to do anything. It's all luck. That makes it hard to root for them because they aren't active in their own survival by way of doing anything besides running. Am I supposed to root for them to run faster?
                1. There are rules in the games... but only bad rules. There only seems to be rules to arbitrarily hinder the actions of the players. This makes it hard for there to be triumphant moments or feel-good moments where MC can be smart or creative. This goes back to him just always running and surviving because, well, he can't really die can he? It becomes really repetitive and frustrating for the reader.
                1. The information they learn from the instances as clues and history don't really seem to matter. This is pertinent in the second instance.
                  Spoiler

                  They find out all about the boss and what he's trying to do, but technically, it doesn't even matter much because in the end, it's solved by brute force. It's just the ML's ability that saves them as it has throughout the entire instance. They can't find tools or do anything outside of almost dying, being forced to the brink, and then it's ML to the rescue.

                  [collapse]
                  It doesn't seem like a game at all because there aren't actual mechanics. Yeah, there are skills and equipment and whatever but even that doesn't seem to factor in much at all in the end.
          If the story is only 130 chapters long, the first two arcs don't give enough world-building, growth, or resolution to lingering questions. It's just...a lot of running. Omg, so much running. I think, as a reader, I need small amounts of payoff to me to want to keep going. But all I get are lots of questions and mild hand-wavey, vague explanations. The author literally uses "but nobody knows for sure" to gloss over some mechanics, which... well, was not satisfying to say the least. <<less

Good story. Not the usual flow of any horror/game story where everything is predictable. I like the suspense, heart pounding but not too gory. There's a lot of humor too that particularly revolve on MC and his friend. I also love the ending ? I want more arcs ??... and I want more side stories ????

The MC is not really an OP. I like seeing how he struggles XD. The ML is a lil tsundere (I think). Feel bad about them, since I like them both. Won't spoil much.

Probably... more>> I'm kinda off sometimes with the "friend" (most of the time, it's super funny but sometimes too much, is annoying, esp when it brings harm to d MC). Also, the repeating lines of MC really bother me. <<less

A very good novel, at first I almost didn't read this novel after seeing AsTheNameDic's comments, because what I hate the most is an obsessed MC.

But after try reading it, I dont think the MC is obsessed with ml, sure, his first interest is because the resemblance (but I do think MC is in love with his dead friend, , ukh, ,). But after meet with ml, he isnt stalking or actively searching for ml. He still go to instance normally and didn't hesistate to risk his life for his... more>> best friend (without thinking of ML for every second).

For me, the best part is the interaction between MC and his bestfriend. They have a pure friendship, mutually help each other and have unconditional trust (sometime more than with ml). If that what a real friend is, I really hope I have one in real live haha.

The downside for me is, its good that MC isnt someone who overpowered (he is pretty weak) and didnt have life-changing golden fingger (i think MC forget about his skill most of the time haha), its only work on critical time. But please, , how many times they have to be toyed/tricked by the demon. I know that we talk about big bad-ass abyss demon... but.... Im not an M (TMM is, lol) I dont like when my fav MC and ML being toyed and felling helpless... Hiks...

But overal good novel, , loved it <<less

... if you're looking for a truly good infinite-flow novel with horror and survival elements... this one really ain't it. Relying on Poverty to Sweet Through Horror Games, The Trial Game of Life, and Card Room are miles above this shit. Any one of those has more likeable characters than this flaming dumpster fire.

The one additional star is for the translation. That's it.

TL;DR: Nothing in this story would change if you deleted every single character aside from the MC and ML. Every single one of them is annoying and replaceable.... more>> Even Tang Mian Mian. It takes the maturity of a 12-year old to find what he says, funny.

    1. The MC is honestly fine. Nothing too interesting, kind of bland, but decent.
    2. Tang Mian Mian? He's redundant. Never have I found a sub-main-character so annoying. All he does is scream "f*ck!" followed by something inane and useless. Like "Oh f*ck! This ghost is so scary!!", he adds nothing to the story. He isn't even remotely funny either. I can see how the author is trying to make his comic relief but when everything he says adds nothing to the story, it's hard to laugh when you're just annoyed. Tang Mian Mian just shitposts and the author calls that humour. He's always screaming too. Bro, you're in a horror instance why do you have to be loud??
    3. The 'newbies' (minor faceless characters) were so damn annoying. I grabbed my hair in frustration more than a few times. The author gave them so much dialogue yet none of it added to the plot, except to annoy the reader. I don't want to read paragraph after paragraph of people saying and doing s*upid shit. It was just filler. Was it necessary to give idiots so much screen time? You'd also think that after realizing their situation they'd be quiet and focus on survival, but instead, they do anything but. As well, what is with their greed? It makes no sense. Anytime a valuable object comes up, all their eyes glint with greed and they want to steal it from the MC. These idiots are in a horror instance where they're not even guaranteed to live... yet for some reason, they're focused on money? Bruh. What about the dead body in front of you?
    4. The 'veterans' act nothing like veterans. They do jack sh*t either. Their thinking is basically on the same level as the MC (which also isn't that high), and the only difference is that they have brute force. That's it. There's no sophisticated solving of mysteries... you could also take them away and the plot wouldn't change. They don't give off an 'experienced' aura. It's always just the MC talking, even when they're present in the room they have nothing of substance to say. They're just 'there'.
There are also other things about the illogical instance difficulty levels, and other things but I honestly no longer want to keep reading so I'm not too clear on the s*upidity of those. You'll find criticisms of those in other reviews. Just as yourself, why is this novel rated at 4.2 (instead of the 4.5+ of normal infinite flow novels) despite glowing reviews? Because it's shit. Please save yourself brain cells and don't read. Or read if you want to, I'm not stopping you. It's just adding another deterrent review. <<less

This is the type of story where you have to read it till the end to understand the 'why's and 'how's

If you're impatient/really want to know the "truth"

... more>>
Spoiler

MC's friend (the ML) is declared brain-dead (this is the type of "death" where the body is alive but there is no brain signal - this happens irl too, you can google it)

ML's mother, a scientist, can't accept her son's fate, so she took him away and used AI to try stimulating ML's brain

At first it seems to be working, and even though ML can't wake up irl, he "live" inside his conciousness (think of it like lucid dream)

Since ML conciousness is his, he's basically the god of his realm, he could do anything, create everything, nothing is impossible except for one unchangeable truth - everything is just his "fake" creation and no matter how many "npc" he created, he's always alone - which leads to a mental breakdown

ML's mental breakdown manifests in real life as weakening of brain waves and ML's mother really couldn't accept this - since AI isn't enough, she began kidnapping real people and made them unconcious > sending them to the same conciousness "realm" as ML

And from that point this story begins - MC coming to ML's grave, met his mother, and since he answer "yes", ML's mother kidnap him too - all for the sake of bring ML back to real life

additional info:

Now ML - as Shen Yuan - really can't remember MC, one part because "Shen Yuan" is the result of ML's mental breakdown (incomplete/split piece), the other part was because whenever ML had the idea to "stop", his mother doused him with amnesiac gas

Which is the same as every other player; ML actually have good intention; whenever someone died inside the "game world" they return to real world but ML's mother doused those people with amnesiac gas and send them back into the game - rendering ML's effort futile

At the end, ML took the chance when his mother is out to send MC back into reality and trick MC into unplugging his oxygen supply - in order to save MC (and everyone else) - because if those people stay too long in the "game", they will become brain dead too

extra chapters;

It's HE;

ML's conciousness comes back to real world after his oxygen supply is removed, though he couldn't do anything for a while and later have to gone through physical therapy before reuniting with MC and build their live together <3

...

supposedly >:D

(the last part hinted that the "real world" might or might not be just another "fake world" that ML created to trick MC into staying with him)

[collapse]

Overall, it was a good read, I binged this like mad (rip sleep), 5/5 recommended ^^ <<less

I finished the first two arcs and more and to be honest, it disappointed me. I've read the reviews so I was expecting something at least. They said to wait further cuz it gets better but if there's a three-episode rule in TV shows, then there's at least something called the first five chapters in web novels.

The ML is annoying and so is his entourage. I don't care if it gets better, the way that the MC is so hung up over him because he looks like someone he knows... more>> who happens to be dead (even if the rule of the web novel world says he is HIM), it's too much man. Okay, you're members of big guilds, but compared to other web novels, the lack of humanity in the people here really is a big turn off.

I tried to like the characters but gods, they are so hard to root for. I couldn't even CARE less for the MC (the freaking MC!!).

Okay, forget about the ML and MC for the moment, looking at it in the mystery/horror-kind of way, it's good at times. At others, it really doesn't have that same punch as others of the genre. The translations are amazing, don't get me wrong, but I don't know if there are lines that have gone lost in translation but the way MC describes things and how it feels like the comedy is so forced is a big turn off.

So, yeah, I'm sorry but I tried. I'm turning it off now too. Zaijian. <<less

Okay then~

Let me tell you, this is a hidden gem!! In the starting chapters it was fairly interesting but then after reading 20+ chapters I became addicted to this novel.

All the arcs are just awesome and sometimes makes you feel like you are really very dumb, it's also very creepy and never fails to hook you up!~ I just love the MC.. So mature and sharp! And and... more>> and the friendship theme between the MC and his bestie in this novel makes feel so good that I'm in tears!

Ordinary.

MC is anchor and saw many horror tricks, but anyway afraid this things. He doesn't use this knowledge.

ML fallen directly opposite of him (I mean, he appears just for protection MC) , at start he doesn't like him, he forgot him (they know each other) but he anyway survive with help from ML. And then he at all losing his intelect, but help him because he still strong.

I would like see how he survive without help other, because he looks useless. For now it's looks boring

I really love this BL novel - it's probably one of the freshest, least-cliched survival game novels out there! It incorporates rankings, point systems, special items and powers, etc. Probably the most unique part for me is the "streaming" attribute that the MC possesses. I'd love to see more of it! I think streaming stories in general are interesting, and this is definitely a new twist on the horror genre.

The romance is barely there at the moment, and the ML is amnesiac (?) and doesn't have much personality outside of... more>> cold, powerful, and handsome, but that's literally 99% of Chinese BL novels, so I don't judge that too harshly. The real gem for me is the main character and his best friend. For once, the MC is allowed to have a male best friend that isn't secretly pining after him or vice versa! Moreover, their banter and dynamic is hilarious. It's honestly the strongest relationship for me in the novel so far. I'm not a fan of novels that use their side characters as pure plot devices or as 2-D caricatures defined by 1 characteristic. <<less

Superb.

The plot is so amazing that I got hooked up so much that I lost my sleep. After I finished reading this series, I can confidently say that this is now included in my fave list of BL.

The author is really good in foreshadowing. This is also easy to mtl so I kinda read it to the end. This is really good.

Halfway in the story, I thought that the author cannot wrap up and finish the story real well (forget to tie loose ends and such) but the author really... more>> did a great job. The plot is great and there's some cute scenes too esp. The ML selling meng.

The latter half of the story will explain everything so if you guys got confused in the middle, take it as such that what confuses you are also part of the plot (hehe). Really. I got so many questions that keep piling up during my journey in reading this. And, I got so happy that they got answered one by one. The experience is so thrilling! Well, this is a horror genre so what can we expect? Of course the thrills and chills~ <<less

This is an exciting suspense/comedy/action/mystery/sci-fi/fantasy/horror/survival/gaming series that has done well to keep me on the edge of my seat while making me laugh every couple of chapters, too. The MC and his best friend are the best foils I have come across in any story-telling medium in a long time.

They worked as streamers and got paid based on their commentary and antics while playing horror games in order to keep their audiences entertained. The MC acts as the more stoic "straight man, " but he's still hilarious and screams when... more>> necessary. His friend is cowardly, but he's actually taller and way more athletic than the MC. Since the MC acts like the leader of the pair, I always get the impression a little rabbit is protecting the cowardly lion. I love their relationship. They trust and rely on each other without hesitation in a world with backstabbing and treachery is normal. Their personalities are consistent and develop smoothly as they experience this horrible gaming world they're trapped in.

The setting is very similar to Game Loading, but the instances the players experience have more variety and can be more life-threatening. Although some of the rules are revealed early on, it's very clear that many other rules and exceptions are hidden in the depths of this strange place, and the mystery keeps growing deeper. Any inconsistencies that appear are hints for what's truly going on in the background.

This is an exciting and hilarious but terrifying and creative read. Strongly recommended. <<less

Imma review this scary but delightful story. Not sure why you guys are rating it so low, even I am not a fan for horror, rather I wanna stay away from but... I stayed for the characters and the plot.

There's a huge difference when your playing A horror game and playing THE horror game. It involves life, aint there aint no save points. So characters here are realistic.

So we have an MC who's the type of player who actually reads and understand the story of each horror. Obviously he's gonna... more>> survive. We have my type aka his bff, "screeches in terror but if have to do it, then we have to do it", btw I love this for the sake of him screaming "dont you dare jinx it!!" (Both are the type of MC haracters seen in outlast/evil within/ resident evil) Then we have to so called veterans who are more a group of ghostbusters minus the capturing devices. Lastly we have the people who arrogant/deadweights which is the type who you wanna sacrifice just to shut up ???

Now, as for difficulty, probably it differs on the boss monsters. But when you're in life death situations what's the difference right? ??? Besides that there rules, that instantly gives you the bad end in a silver platter. So I guess the more complex the rules are the higher the difficulty.

Spoiler

according the forums its a HE so you can be assured all is well in the end

[collapse]

Promise you will enjoy the banter of MC and BFF ????? happy reading!! <<less

Oh my gosh, this was frankly hilarious. Don’t get me wrong, it’s scary in certain bits but because the main character used to stream himself playing horror games, when he is actually caught in a real life horror game, he can’t help but comment on it like a real streamer.

No sign of male lead yet, I don’t think.

OMG, just finished MTL (it's very easy to understand the MTL).

Oh, so good! My boys.... are so good together! Really willing to die for each other many times.

Everything is not as it seems, there's so many twists and turns, but in the end, everything is revealed and makes sense.
