I've been listening to "The Greystone Chronicles" series. It's super enjoyable and insane quality narrators (has a male and female).

It's a slightly in the future VR MMORPG setup, where you can earn real money by playing the game. It's pretty enjoyable. It has me wanting to listen outside of when I normally would (driving, going to bed) which doesn't happen often. Highly recommend

I've been listening to Mistborn, and I'm sad that I slept on that series honestly. Just reaching the end of the Well of Ascension atm.

How is Stormlight compared to it?

I actually like the Mistborn stuff a bit more than Stormlight. Pretty sure I'm in the minority though. They're both pretty good.

Finished the third Audio book in "The Greystone Chronicles" and I'm pretty happy with all of them. Waiting on the Audiobooks for 4 and 5.

I might start one of his other series, but there are a few other things I want to catch up on first.

I feel like this is my first exposure to LitRPG outside of Daemon by Daniel Suarez (which I feel like might not qualify?). Is there much good stuff out there? Preferably with narration as good as this, because it was excellent.

Cheese personally doesn't bother me, as long as entertaining.
It’s not. This is the most cringe shit I’ve read in a long time.

This is literally in the book:

“Boss, if we lower fees on the in game auction house we will lose billions of dollars. We should do it because.”

“Brilliant! Let’s do it. Who’s idea was this?”

“Boss, it was mine”

“Well congratulations on your $1M bonus!”

Give it a little more credit than that. The premise was to get people to use it instead of black market because black market is more convenient.

That was still completely unnecessary hey look we are the good guys though

The “black market” was just people advertising in chat and trading in person. And it’s far from the only example, the whole book is basically hey look we are the good guys. I mean the main in game conflict is the main character being so buttmad that some people PvP in a VR game that allows PvP. And killing npcs gets you put into e-jail for a year.

Every premise of the book is pretty much garbage. The characters are about as one dimensional as you can get too. Maybe in later books it’s better.
