Political Wire: Political Video Game Upgraded
The upgrade to the addicting political video game President Forever has been released in time for the holiday season. Compete in either the Democratic or Republican primary and the general election “with 14 ready-made candidates in 2008” or as a candidate in a historic election. Highly recommended for political junkies.

One caveat: A few candidates included in the game are no longer running, such as former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner (D) and Sen. George Allen (R-VA), and there are some notable absences as well, including Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL).

Other good political video games are Political Tycoon, The Election Game and The Political Machine.
