I have mixxed feelings about The Game. I'm not as quick to write it off as a mere piece of fiction or entertainment, as some of you are, but I can be one of its biggest detractors on the forum. It was corny and has become facepalm-level cliched, yes, but dismissing it out of hand is an exercise in collective ingratitude. That blue-pill guys read it is no indicator of its value. Blue pill guys also lift weights, suit up, and travel.

Some of the Manosphere's sharpest commentators were directly influenced by the milieu that created Mystery and The Game. Roosh is no exception. We can't underestimate the value of telling a generation of men that they could change themselves--with an eye on concrete insights into women's nature--and become more appealing to them. This opened the door to an array of self-improvement arenas and applications for the insights of academic disciplines to the experience of the individual.

Since this thread is about analogies: The Game (and its influencers) is the wheel of the Manosphere.

This, I'd argue, is more a commentary on their amnesia than it is on an honest appraisal of their predecessors.
