Woman used Tinder to convince people to buy Nier: Automata gets approval from Yoko Taro

In a recently published story by Kotaku(opens in new tab), Nier: Automata fan Jen shares the story of how she used to "roam around on Tinder and get guys to buy Nier: Automata and then ghost them." In the story, Jen explains how it's been a couple of years since the Tinder antics took place, but by the end of it, she had roped 22 men into buying the Square Enix title.

"I mostly just talked a lot about [Nier: Automata] and recommended the game," Jen's original tweet reads, "high sales means more Taro games." Following Kotaku's story, Nier: Automata director Yoko Taro quote retweeted the story, simply adding: "Glory to mankind." We're not entirely sure if this means he approves of the devious practice or just liked the story, but hey, if it means more game sales, we're sure he's got to be somewhat pleased with the Tinder tactic.

Easy to blame the woman here, but that’s not my take.

First off, why the fuck are you on Tinder? It’s a societal cesspool that brings out the worst in both sexes. Period. Secondly, you’re a moron for allowing a woman to dictate how you spend your money - particularly a woman who’s not your wife.

Nier: Automata is brilliant by the way.

Says a lot about why this game became successful

The first one is still the best one (i.e. the western version that features a chad muscular papa looking to protect his daughter)
Outside of the story (and music) which doesn't even pick up until the end the first game is trash. Automata is at least fun.

Not really understanding how this is news worthy, is this really the sad point we've got too? Sharing a kotaku article.

My condolences too the thirsty boys who purchased this trash game to appease some girl they don't know on a Instagram follower booster app.

Absolute Muppets.

I don’t think I’ve ever encountered someone that didn’t like Nier: Automata

It’s sleazy to go on a dating site and lead people on in order to manipulate their behavior.

GAF is just giving her a free pass because they have a hard-on for Nier Automata (either that or they don’t want to admit they were one of her victims).

If she were like, trying to convince guys to play Overwatch so they’d be exposed to strong non-white/cis/hetero characters, everyone here would be singing a different tune.

Looks like somebody ghosted you on tinder. Let it all out, let the healing process begin.
I've been in a relationship for over 5 years...

My friend Myles that uses Tinder & Hinge?shows people he talks too and they all seem to have Instagram account linked/listed.

Amusingly though, once it seems like he is doing well/in there, he loses interest & seeks his next person to give up on, once they seem interested, it's pretty amusing.

New flash - Almost everyone on Tinder is lying and manipulating their way into getting what they want. Make no mistake.

Listening to some cosplay chick on a sleazy dating app who’s telling you to buy a game she likes and then doing so because you’re a desperate incel who thinks that doing what a woman asks will lead to favorable sexual outcomes is almost all on the men themselves. What’s ironic is that she’d probably be more likely to date you if you said “Fuck no”. 😂

Blame the woman? For what? Nier Automata is great.

If these guys did something that they didn't want to do because a girl on Tinder told them to do it, then they hopefully learned a valuable lesson about modern dating AND they got to play 2017's GOTY.

That's a win/win.
