Pixelitis Picks: The worst politicians in gaming history

After months of cross-country campaigning and millions of dollars spent, another presidential election cycle came to a close with last night’s re-election of President Barack Obama. American citizens everywhere can all collectively breathe a huge sigh of relief… until January.

Historically, politicians are portrayed in some fascinating ways in videogames. For example, take Metal Wolf Chaos‘ President Michael Wilson blasting out of the White House in a full-blown mech.

Since Democrats and Republicans are going to find something to whine about over the next four years, we decided to take a look at gaming’s truly awful politicians. From a spineless mayor to a former President that eventually destroys a major part of Manhattan, these are guys you definitely would not want to vote for.

It’s easy to imagine both sides of the aisle agreeing that these guys suck. (Culture, Dark Cloud 2, Earthbound, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty, PS2, Retro)
