*** For that matter, why did doctors let someone who fell into a coma for several months after playing The World have a computer *again* so they could continue to play The World when she woke up?

* [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/AwesomeBosses/VideoGames?from=Awesome.VideoGameBosses Best Boss Ever]]: In Vol.3 [[spoiler:many people agree that the final battle against the Three Azure Knights, Aura Knights, is the best boss fight in the series: fought at [[BloodstainedGlassWindows Hulle Granz Cathedral]], awesome music, it isn't an avatar battle and merely the fact that you are fighting three of the main heroes from the first quadrilogy of ''.hack'' games.]]



* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Too many examples to list. Haseo's arrival as a PKK in Volume 1, [[spoiler:the four-way Avatar summoning sequence against Sakaki's AIDA]], [[spoiler:Atoli ''telling off'' Sakaki after he betrayed her with MindRape]]...
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Vol.2 Reminisce has more of this than any other.
** Volume 3 as a whole is full of them as well. [[spoiler:The ending cutscene with Haseo running after Atoli is one of the milder examples.]]
** Almost every Promise Card ending.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Some of the "Marriage/Promise" endings, even more so if you pick someone like ''[[spoiler: Azure Kite]]''.

to:

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Too many examples DisappointingLastLevel: After testing Skeith's ultimate form, the rest of the FinalBoss fight is done with the regular playable characters. Futhermore, most of the next fights against doppeldangers and the final one will barely pose a challenge if the player already defeated the doppeldangers from Disc 1 and 2.

phases made players begin to have spastic fits such that they are physically unable to take their hands off the controllers unless there's someone in the room to do it for them, like Mai and Tokuouka in the first volume of Liminality. The same possibly holds true for anyone in the presence of AIDA or the Avatars.
** Almost every Promise Card ending.
Why do Atoli's parents take her to the doctor, confirm she has Doll Syndrome, and still let her play on the computer? The answer to that could be FridgeHorror. We later learn how isolated Atoli is and it's heavily implied [[spoiler:from her pre-avatar battle]] that her parents are at minimum neglectful.
** If Aina was so sick in the hospital, why did doctors allow her to play an online virtual reality game so much?

* UnfortunateImplications - It's encouraged that [[spoiler: it's better for Saku to remain a split personality of Bo, instead of being reabsorbed by his mind. Real cases of dissociative personality disorder can attest how problematic this is. However, there also exist cases where the premature reintegration of the dissociative identities of the individual can be just as harmful to their psyche, as they are not prepared or ready to "part" from the other identity.]]
