The results are in for Burke's Joystick first official poll! If you recall, the poll question was: If Barack Obama was a character from a video game, which character would he be? The choices were:
Capt. John Soap MacTavish from Call of Duty
John Henry Eden from Fallout 3
Jim Raynor from Starcraft
Kane from Command and Conquer
Gordon Freeman from Half-life
Arcturus Mengsk from Starcraft
Commander Shepard from Mass Effect
Vladimir Makarov from Call of Duty
The people have spoken! The result: Arcturus Mengsk from Starcraft!
This is a wise choice. Truth is, the political rhetoric of Arcturus Mengsk, versus the latter reality, are quite similar to what we have experienced from Barack Obama.
