Your Chance to Become President

Nerds of the world unite! If you’re too scared of the outside world busy to get out and vote, now you can PLAY the election in the form of a video game. It’s called “The Political Machine 2012” and it allows you to control the fate of your selected candidate through the Presidential election process. From the campaign to the debates to the actual election. You can play as Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich or make up your own candidate. Considering that’s your lackluster crop, you might want to go ahead and create a new character.

While we aren’t sure if the Obama character comes with a teleprompter or if the Romney character makes a gaffe-a-minute like they do in real life, the game costs $9.95 and you can learn more about it here. We haven’t had a chance to play the game yet, but the graphics can’t be any worse than CNN’s holograms.
