“Anyone who loves guns can’t be all that bad,” one NPC proclaimed to me in the opening hour of my journey into Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet. The comment understandably took me by surprise, as going into the game, I had very little idea of what to expect. As it turns out, what I should have expected was guns, and a lot of them.
