Australia 2016

Recommended Posts

I played the released 2016 version.  It's skewed way too heavily towards Malcolm Turnbull.  In the game he always wins a large majority - in real life he won a bare 1-seat majority.  I wasn't sure where else to post this, but I've played 2016 as both Shorten and Turnbull.  It's virtually impossible for me to win as Shorten, and way too easy to win as Turnbull.  Towards the end, Turnbull gets all the remaining endorsements.  Even if I'm playing as Shorten and way ahead, the game is essentially over at that point - Turnbull gets a huge amount of momentum right up until Election Day, and the ALP comes crashing down in the polls.

Yeah, endorsements are way, way too OP in Australian scenarios, they normally do pretty much nothing over here due to the fact that pretty much everyone knows which paper will endorse who (not that hard to do when Murdoch controls a fair chunk of your media tbh)

Since the Conrad Black trial, Rupert Murdoch's influence and media ownership has been cut back to almost nothing here in Canada...
