For the unaware, GeoGuessr is a browser game that places you randomly anywhere in the world on google streetview, and then you have to guess on the map where you are. They have other gamemodes too that are like specifically famous places, just the United States, etc

you get points based on how close your guess was to the destination, as well as how fast you were.

it's probably my favorite game to kill time with in my browser, and it's a really great way to start randomly being able to tell the difference between Cyrillic languages on signs.

To get an idea of the game, here's a tik tok guy who's entire life is being very good at telling if dirt is South American dirt, or Middle Eastern dirt, although I think his gameplay is actually fake because he's too good.

If you just want to go for accuracy and don't care about time, one strat is to look for the closest street sign with an address and google maps it. Another more efficient strat is to guess based on the language displayed on signs etc. Of course though then you get somewhere like switzerland that sometimes interchanges french, italian, german, etc and then you're just screwed.

I got really good at identifying Sinhala language signs because for some reason Sri Lanka is a common area in the game.

Played it numerous times, anywhere in the UK i'm pretty decent but some of the ones you get are insane and watching these dudes get them in seconds is crazy.

I'm much better at GTAGuessr but not as good as i'd hope after playing the game since day one. Anyone else who has played the game a bunch should give it a go.

Yeah the more I watch him the more I'm convinced it's just a meme, I'm sure he's great at the game but when he saw some random dirt and said "Oh that's north Botswana dirt" and guessed like 10 miles from the answer in Botswana, I was like yeah uhhhhhhh
