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.

I'll defer to your experience then.

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.
