Inauguration day is upon us. Many of you may be wondering why LiTi-4 would be talking about Obama on a video gaming blog. The answer is that Obama is the first President-elect in our history to advertise in games. You can find an article about it here. While Obama has done many things that no other President-elect has done before, we’d like to focus on his overall influence on gaming.
Obama took his campaign to the people. Where are the people? This was a question I’m sure they asked. They’re all online and gaming. So the only obvious answer to reaching the people was to find them in their games. This is exactly what he did and it worked.
I fully believe that unlike any other President in history, Obama will have a major influence over how our video games are developed and ran in the next four years. Who knows, maybe he’ll even help develop a few along the way.
