. Hack was pretty big back in the day. It was the first major work to be set in an MMORPG, back when games like that were brand new. Most of the people who read this site probably weren't even alive before MMORPGs were invented so it's hard to explain why people thought this was a good story when it first came out in 2002.

The biggest problem the. Hack franchise had is that none of the writers, animators, or producers who conceived the project had ever actually played an MMORPG... more>> before. They never developed a plausible explanation for how players could get trapped within an online game, so the story is a fantasy where the plot mechanic is magic (but with computers somehow). Awe-inspiring soundtrack though.

This genre wasn't done correctly until SAO came out, because that's how long it took for a generation of people who actually understood MMORPGs to be in a position of writing novels and producing animes. <<less

This story bring back memories. I used to play the game and completed all 4 of them. A mystery-centered vrmmorpg story. As latest chapter, there's still no stat building that staple to the vrmmorpg genre and it quite refreshing.
