Dyne Valiant is a frustrated gamer.
But as one of the best special ops agents that the world has, his superiors and the government itself ensured that he won’t be able to play video games because of his addictive tendencies. And so he lived and fought without ever being able to play beyond the nostalgic PS-One games.
Fate was cruel as he finally meets his end after exacting revenge on those who killed his family. But on his dying moments, another dying man with strange magical powers appears.

But unlike Dyne, justice was not served for this man. He then offers Dyne a chance to satisfy the greatest regret of his life… To play the videogames he loved back when he was a kid. Using the enigmatic god-tiered artifact, the Imaginarium Bond, Dyne is revived and sent to the world of cultivators where he must reach for the peak and challenge the gods of that world.

And while the path of Immortality and a second life was a great gift, Dyne's joy was elsewhere.
Within the Imaginarium Bond were three worlds that the mysterious man created with the last of his powers. These worlds were based on three PS-One classic games and are designed to help Dyne in his Path of Cultivation.

Soon, Dyne will reach the Cultivation world and fight the wicked Kings, Saints, Devils, and Gods that now control it.

Soon, Dyne will awaken the Genesis Trees of Legaia.

Soon he will conquer the many nations with his Rune Knights in the continent of Forsena.

Soon he will be reborn as an Endless to battle gods and dragons and slay the founding Emperor of the Fou Empire.

Dyne was deprived of gaming all his life. But now his life depends on his gaming. Witness the tales of Dyne Valiant in his adventure as a Nostalgic Gamer in a Cultivation World.

Check out hogfell's channel for an audio book of some chapters of this story. He is, as of now, the only one I give permission to make an audio book.

(Support me on Patreon and read more chapters there! I will also be posting this on and Webnovel under the same username, Rapture_Tales)

Note: This isn't my first rodeo. I have written over 1000 chapters on two other ongoing stories that is ongoing with a 3-4 chapter per week rate at Webnovel and another in Meganovel. This will probably have at least 900 chapters before it ends. And I'm being very conservative. As this story is at its early phase, please read and rate it as such.

    Status: chapter 108: rena’s story

    Meh. It'd be better if the MC just said that he was a messiah sent from above instead of telling so many lies to build up his background. And his lies weren't even that good to begin with. There's always a feeling that something is wrong with those lies, and yet in most cases people don't even bother to doubt his words.

    The fanfic is also incredibly dry and needs more comedy or different PoVs from other characters. It's always, always about the MC, making it one-track and easy to get bored of. The self-thinking monologues and the 'silent dialogues' between MC and Strife are put in the same quotation mark as the dialogues between MC and other characters, making it really confusing.

    Conclusion: The idea of combining games and cultivation was promising, but the execution is subpar.

    Status: chapter 152: source of the vampires

    So, to sum it up in as un-flattering terms as possible that will give you exactly the opposite impression of this series that you ought to take away, it's someone's over powered OC inserted into various video game plots one after another, using their knowledge of the plot of the game to solve all the problems of all the characters in the story.

    But, if this story turned out like every other one of the hundreds of stories that could fit almost that exact same description, then I wouldn't be rating this 5 stars. This thing is GOOD!

    The manner in which the game worlds are implemented is very well justified by the premise, and it is written such that the cultivation concepts blend in very well with the world settings. This author knew what they were doing when they selected the 3 games in the synopsis. As someone who's played Legend of Legaia myself, I was very impressed with how much the author managed to simultaneously do justice to the game while also finding an explanation that expertly wove it into this cultivation world setting.

    The author also manages to make excellent use of comedy to play off how OP the protagonist is, expertly deflecting the OP feats with hillarious reactions by the people around. But, while the protagonist takes things very non-seriously most of the time, the story STILL somehow manages to keep a sense of tension and urgency at critical moments that allow it to fill the role of an action fantasy combat story rather well too.

    It is easy to be skeptical due to just how many people have done similar concepts wrong, but I would definitely recommend giving this thing a try. Read a few chapters and see how you like it. The premise is one that's been given a bad name, but the implementation here is absolute gold tier and very well written.

    (About the one thing that would make this better would be if the author would include a few more SNES titles in the world and not just PS1. There's one with Secret of Mana. I want MORE!!! I want CHRONO TRIGGER! Give me Chrono Trigger!)

    Status: chapter 235: too weak!

    While there are certainly some areas where things could be improved, pacing shifts here and there, some proofreading etc.; the story is fun, and it accomplishes what it sets out to do. Jemini's review sums it up pretty well, and video-game plots start getting woven together in a surprisingly intuitive way.

    Is the story perfect? Absolutely not. But it accomplishes what it sets out to do very well. This is a real love letter to classic video games, cleaning up the lore and bringing it up to date in a fun way, with twists that you know are coming, but are executed well enough that you don't know exactly what's coming next. Yes, you know another video-game plot is coming, but which and when? Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if we got something like FF6 mixed with Skies of Arcadia. Or Planescape could show up, I have no idea, and that's the point.

    Sure, you should probably have a few wikis open while you read this, but it isn't necessary. It's a fun romp through classic RPGs with a twist (actually done right for a change), and as long as you don't take the story too seriously, you'll have a lot of fun.
