Political Sims

Happy Election Day!

During this season of politics, we thought we'd give a nod to video games that simulate elections and games that allow you to step into the role of leaders. If you haven't gotten enough political drama this week, feel free to try a political simulator at the archive, such as these two computer games:

Commander in Chief: Geopolitical Simulator 2009
Political Machine 2008
