Pick Up Artist Simulator Web Game Is Surprisingly the Greatest Thing

You'll believe a man can fail. Hard.

A game that promises to teach you how to use pick up artist tricks on women sounds pretty awful, I know.


But don’t worry. The game is a tongue-in-cheek look at how slimy and transparent these dumb tactics are and that some of them might get you f***ing maced—and you’d deserve it. Seriously, go play it and laugh at the jerks who behave like this.

Some of us used to get frequent emails asking that we’d post absolutely awful pick up artist demonstration videos, so this is wonderfully cathartic for us. The more ridiculous you get, the more spectacularly you will fail, and that’s when the best part of the game comes in—I won’t spoil it for you.

Then you can take another shot to see just how long you can go before getting rejected, because while the game offers you several options of how to approach the situation, they might as well all just be labeled “act like a total ass.”

It also lets you dress your jerk up in several ridiculous outfits, which lets you you perfectly craft your own personal jerk stereotype to mock. So go ahead and have some fun watching a gross pick up artist get laughed off repeatedly. Alternately, send the game to someone you suspect might be in danger of believing some of the “game” nonsense, and let the simulator knock some sense into them. You won’t regret it.
