Ten years ago, a group of gods turned everyone on Earth into players of a sadistic game that forced them to kill monsters in real life -- or be killed themselves.

Both involve a structure where God's show interest and become sponsors in a sense to the player. Both MCs were very powerful but faced a brutal reality of their circumstances they end up traveling back in time and take advantage of the knowlege from the future to change their fate. Both MCs are cunning and not endlessly kind but rather putting their own survival and strength above those around them. Both are really good reads!
Both mc kind of have the same goal... Revenge in "Kill the Hero" the mc gets sent back to the the past and partakes in a journey to stop a certain group from "Ruling the world" and killing him and his friends again.
In "Return to Player" the mc´s world turns into a game that the gods made for fun, with the simple goal of eradicating the human kind. At the end the mc was the only one to survive the game. The mc achived the ending "A Bad Ending" called "A Lonely World" and then recived a pacage that even the gods didnt know about and was sent back to the past with his sole goal of changing the future for human kinds survival.

Both MC's raise the dead. There is a difference however. In Kill the Hero the MC raises skeleton soldiers who are noncognitive (they have no thoughts or feelings and are very much puppets) while in Second Life Ranker it's shown that while they are loyal to MC he has to raise their loyalty to him and they also are cognitive (especially the humans that he raises).
