Short but I feel the author's rendition of the gamer concept is a refreshing take compared to others

The moment someone has to specify what text is used for what type of speech at the beginning of the story is the moment I know their story is shit.

This insight is developed from hard earned experience I presume.

I saw way too many stories doing this.

And I dare say that most people on this site agree with me on this.

Eh, I find it to be fairly inoffensive as far as things go.

It's not that it's offensive, it's just a red flag. Authors worth their salt don't need to tell you the various types of speech at the start of the story.

That's a major turnoff. Like, does the author think we can't figure out what indicates thought, speech, etc based on the patterns of the story itself? Damn.

It's not an original concept. The absolute choice is ripped straight from Noucome, a light novel adapted into an anime a few years ago. And that system is as terrible in the fic as it is in that series. Well, I personally hate it. When a God gives you two absolute, terrible choices, and you have to pick one, it's just results in eternal abuse humor. I'd actually like to see this concept done seriously, but Naruto in this fic is clearly a retard with ramen for brains. You might find it slightly humorous.

I've seen it so many times it's stopped registering. But yes, usually found in old, meh Naruto fics. But like Probellum said, it's pretty inoffensive as far as disclaimers go. The vote for the pairing, on the other hand - ugh.

This fic is pretty close to a 1/5 tho. Waste of time. And I like gamer fics.

Pretty much this.

The Absolute Choice concept seems awful to me as well. Some of the charm of a Gamer story is building your character and such as you want to. I suppose if you're going for something like Terror Infinity it might work though.

Neither google nor searching the story id showed up anybody posting this yet, so I figured I might as well.

After the Rain, by QuillQ
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11931226/1/After-the-Rain

I've been enjoying this, although as it's fem Naruto it's probably not everybody's cup of tea. It's 300k words in, and while it has pairings marked there has been little to no romance thus far.

Author Summary:
Never had Naruto predicted she'd end up in the past. Not even the one who caused her to go back had anticipated she'd be dragged along for the ride. The kyūbi had been trying to save himself, not her. She'd once said that the hero always arrive late, this was quite the opposite. Naruto would be very, very early this time.

It's pretty much a Naruto ends up back in time during the third shinobi war, is also conveniently made younger, and then gets brought back to Konoha by Jiraiya. Which all makes it sound worse than it actually is. It's a decent time waster, if you like fem Naruto.

They seem like smutty one shots? I'm not sure. I read the first couple paragraphs of the first one, and it's not overly interesting. Naruto talks about masturbating, and after a peak at the summary it looks like a Naruto fucks a transformed clone.

Meh. I'd give it a pass.

I like Cost of Dreams because it was I found it amusing. It's just a humorous oneshot with a bit of implied sex.

As for coping mechanisms. Well I don't like it for the few lines of smut. But for how he used his clones as coping mechanisms. There was this touching scene where Naruto just played games like tag with his clones(not female). It doesn't make Naruto having sex with his female clone seem normal, good, or healthy.

Hey. There was a fanfic on here that some people didn't like but I'm quite fond of.
It had a Nidaime!Naruto tag and had minato and Kushina living (Also Danzo manipulating Anko and Naruto)
Cheers

Do you remember what it was called? The idea sounds interesting, but is very easy to mess up and would take real skills to pull off. Chances are, it's riddled with clichés and badly written ,but on the off-chance it's not, link please?

Is it The Harsh Truth? It has been so long since I've read this, and I think I dropped it after first chapters. I can't remember Danzo's role, but Minato and Kushina are not dead, and
 
they have another child, I think? I think Naruto also supposedly had Yin!Kurama, not sure on this point though.


I also remember it being full of angst, not a surprise considering the author's other stories.

Yes that was it. More of a guilty pleasure. Seeing as I'm a big fan of angst. Thank you.

Ran into a VFSNAKE fic while searching. I think I'm permanently cringing. My. God.
