Celebrate Presidents’ Day by Looking at the Most Memorable Video Game Presidents

Note: This list was originally published in November 2016 as the “Best Video Game Presidents” to coincide with the United States’ Presidential election. I figured I’d resurface it to celebrate today’s holiday.


You might be thinking that there’s not much to celebrate on Presidents’ Day, and I honestly wouldn’t blame you. I’m not really feeling overly festive about it either. However, video games offer an escape, and they’ve also had quite a few characters that wound up being the President. After all, talking virtual politics is more fun than the disaster zone that is the current political climate.

So, let’s celebrate some of them instead. I’ve come up with a list of 10 of the most memorable video game presidents. The only rule was that the characters had to appear in a game that released on PlayStation consoles, since we are a PlayStation site after all.

So, without further adieu, let’s celebrate Presidents’ Day in style by taking a look at our list of the most memorable video game presidents!

We hope you enjoyed our look at the most memorable video game presidents. While we only showed off 10 people who have served as commander-in-chief, there are even more memorable characters from good and bad games. We hope you enjoy your Presidents’ Day!

Let us know in the comments who your favorite video game president is, and what games you’ve enjoyed that have had virtual presidents in them!
