The United States presidential election of 2016 is scheduled for Tuesday, November 8, 2016.

These presidential election games are quite fun to play, they don’t have a high price-tag and don’t require huge computer resources. If there is one particular presidential election candidate you don’t like, now you have the change to literally crush him/her.
Here are the best election games
The Political Machine 2016
This game allows you to create your own ideal candidate and run for President of the United States as one of over a dozen presidential candidates. If you want to win, you need to learn how to deliver the best speeches, hire unsavory operatives, and basically do whatever it takes to win on election day.
All is fair in love, war and politics. Mudslinging is a very common election practice and you too are going to learn to use your power and money to purchase ads and influence voters.
You can play as one of several pre-made past and present candidates like Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, Barack Obama, and more. Just like in real life election campaigns, you should prepare for the worst. Torrid affairs, natural disasters, email scandals, and other random events can come out of nowhere and change the direction of the campaign for better or worse.
Each and every word you say matter, and the sophisticated underlying simulation model uses census data and real issues to test your political savvy.
You can play The Political Machine for only $9.99 from Steam.
President Infinity challenges you to become the most powerful political leader in the world. President Infinity is a sophisticated strategy simulation and navigating through the maze of game options is not an easy task.
President Infinity includes both the general election and primaries, and you can choose from over 40 candidates and 4 parties. If you’re more of a nostalgic, the game also allows you to play in one of the 2016, 2012, 2008, 1980, 1972, 1968, and 1912 election campaigns. You can also play in simulation mode, where you can run trials of an election campaign and see what the average results are.
President Infinity is heavily focused on election strategies, so if you’re looking for a funny election game, you should rather choose The Political Machine. If you want to play a tough, complex, sometimes puzzling game where the election success is guaranteed only by a perfect strategy, than President Infinity is the right game for you.
You can purchase President Infinity for $19.95 from 270Soft.
You can play Topple Trump directly on your Windows 10 computer’s browser, there is no need to download it. Topple Trump is not a strategy game, your main task is to guess the missing words in real quotes spoken by Presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Long story short, wrong answers gain points for the Republicans, while right answers gain points for the Democrats. The game is a funny reminder of Trump’s political ideas, exploiting the Presidential candidate’s outrageous remarks.
Trump is well-known for his talent for saying unthinkable things generating headline after headline and the game tries to keep up with all his strange remarks.
