This is worth every second you spend reading it! I really, really liked what's been translated up till now and I hope the rest of the novel keeps from falling apart towards the end the way webnovels have a tendency to do..

The MC handles the situation he's put in pretty damn well considering how everyone else deals with it. First off, he's not dead. That alone makes him better than the majority of others dragged into the game. Second thing is that comparing him to the strength of the ML... more>> and his team, who has dealt with this much longer, is also fcken ridiculous. He does his best and he's very much human. He's not supposed to start off strong, that would be totally illogical and would ruin the whole novel.. His relationship with mianmian is also mf precious!

Spoiler

it's also pretty fcking obvious shen yuan is supposed to be xinghe, and asthenamedic or wtf is pretty damn off saying the MC caused the ml's death because he DID NOT cause it, he has f*cking survivor's guilt and he is FULLY justified in that

If only I can rate this novel more than 5 stars, this novel is a huge journey. So many tears, but it all ended well. I'm sure some of you already figured out a little detail, soon it will be fully clear so keep on reading. If you are curious and wanted to know more, I recommended reading the raw but using the google translate. I did it for a few novels and they are readable.

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

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 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

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 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 pass judgement on him... more>> 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

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

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.

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

I just finished MTLing this novel and I can say that it is a really good novel. After finishing the novel I have an impression that it's more like a scifi novel than a horror novel. It's honestly like a transmigration novel with a plot twist behind the plot twist.

The MC is really weak in the first part of the story and some of the readers who like an MC with an overpowered golden finger may not like it very much. But honestly I feel that it's only appropriate and... more>> make the story more exciting. And although the MC is weak physically that doesn't mean that he can't do anything. He is strong mentally and can joke around with his best friend while experiencing some life threatening situations. The reason behind it is because of his occupation which is a horror game anchor. He is also really good in analyzing the story of the copies and find important clues that will solve the copy.

The ML has a really interesting character plot as well. And he can be possessive but honestly it's more like a child guarding his most favorite person. It's not overbearing and actually just give a meng feeling in the novel. He is also strong but he is not like a bug that automatically solved everything in the copy. Honestly most of the time they will more or less experience loss. But when you get to the last few chapters it will all make sense.

The romantic relationship between them all throughout the story is really ambiguous. It will only have a confirmation on last few chapters. So the BL part is not the focus of the story but their relationship is an important part of the plot. You will realize it when you finished the story.

The scene with the best friend of the MC is really good as well. They have a really good relationship that is build with trust and camaraderie. The character of the best friend is really good and most of the time he is the ine adding a comedic factor in this novel. I honestly love this character.

I won't give any spoilers because it will ruined the plot twists that the author painstakingly think of but I can tell you guys that it's a good story and you should definitely give it a try. <<less

Arghhhh

I hate the MC... I know that he feels guilty for Xinghes' death but still to keep on chasing Shen yuan just because the two resemble each other outwardly.

I'm done reading the second copy where they were together with shen yuan's team and I 'm just mad at the MC, come on, HE'S OBSESS ABOUT XINGHE and that's the very reason why he keeps bothering Shen yuan and poor him, he is a substitute for someone and even gain a buggage that he needs to carry around.

Pissed of MC. You... more>> need to stop being obsess about your childhood friend even though YOU are the reason he is dead.

And don't bother Shen yuan. Hmph

MC IS ABNORMAL

MC IS WEAK AS A CHICKEN

MC IS ANNOYING

(just to clarify, I'm not really sure if Xinghe and Shen yuan is related to each other since I haven't read far ahead. This my review after the second world that they entered)

I will probably edit this review after I finish reading the 3rd world copy. Hopefully MC is no longer annoyingly obsess with a massive abnormality and a huge brain damage.

On a side note, the MC is atleast Smart and not completely without use.

I enjoyed what I understood of this story, though it gets really complex and messy towards the end. Speaking of which, I'm conflicted about the ending, though it is a HE (big spoiler ahead)

... more>>
Spoiler

i dislike endings where everyone gets amnesia and returns to their lives with no problems, nightmares, or trauma despite years of constant life and death struggles so I was disappointed when the author pulled that out towards the end. The MC regaining his memory kind of redeemed it as did the things that happened with the ML. They meet a few people in the extras that they knew in the game and while those people thought they looked familiar there was no sudden return of memories.
the game introduced in the last extra makes the story a little open-ended. Is it the same game? Will the people who play the beta suddenly remember? Ending the story with the three getting ready to play was a b*tch move since we will never know if it was a new version of the game they knew or just something with the same name. Is it still a HE if they get sucked into the game again?

[collapse]

there were several unanswered questions like who those people watching him really were though admittedly the explanation could have been there and I just missed it. My eyes were getting tired towards the end. also I didn't find the story all that scary. The first instance was probably the scariest, though I admit my tolerance for scary stories is pretty high. Some of them seemed more like survival scenarios rather than horror copies. All in all its good but flawed and the turn it takes towards the end was surprising. <<less
