President Forever Vs. The Political Machine

Recommended Posts

I love Burgoyne's game. It's the most constructive way to game an hour. I know you're out there, those of you who get emboldened watching the evening news and take democracy in your own hands as a release and a rush. For a moment in time your `what if' becomes customized and either you unrealistically conquer the electorate or find yourselves in a dead heat spent on `fast' mode election day with expectation.

Yet there is another simulation in the process. Having not played it yet, I'm curious as to what comparisons may be drawn between President Forever and the Political Machine for those of you who have played both. Let it down.

The PM game is really cartoonish and dare I say dumbed down. It's not realistic and there is not nearly the same amount of strategy that is involved PF. However it is worth a "download" if you can get it off certain P2P services. Otherwise though I wouldn't waste your money on it.

Another stupid thing they did on PM was instead of having DC (3) and Maryland (10) as 2 seperate "states", they put them together has Maryland (13)...that wouldn't even work in real life. Even if D.C. was in Maryland that would only equal one congressional district (1EV) so Maryland would have 11...plus that would open the wound that a Republican could win Washington D.C.
