The best anime for game addicts
There is nothing more common among otakus than enjoying the trinity of games, anime and rock. Perhaps due to the nature of energy and style, these three tastes seem to go well together.
Therefore, anime with game features is usually very successful with both oriental and western. This became clear with the great success of Sword Art Online and several others anime of the Isekai genre which are a person's life in another world with all the characteristics of a game.
Among these game-themed animes, there are some good ones, and others not so much, so I'll leave here some recommendations with my favorites. All of them are highly rated on both Crunchyroll and My Anime List.
