Comedian Rich Kuras heads to Azeroth to poll players on the 2008 Presidential Election! It is kind of disturbing to think that the population of a virtual world is bigger than most of our states…

    That was clever and well done.

    I do hope that these comments don't degenerate into a political argument. It seems to happen around the intarwebs nowadays.

    Okay, that's the most insightful gaming video I've ever seen. Politics aren't a favorite topic in my case, but I have to say I'm impressed with this. 4/5, only because it wasn't that funny.

    I would actually love to see this done more often in MMOs. Even just for the fun-fact factor.

    I wonder what race Joe the Plumber would be…

  4. Kuromatsu on November 3rd, 2008 3:47 am

    I… I… I just don’t know what to say. It was just really… different.

  5. Ryder on November 3rd, 2008 4:42 am

    I’m loving the McCain dwarf…

    Only a couple days before all the political LOLs are obsolete… then again there’s always the afterparty.

  7. Someguy503 on November 3rd, 2008 4:50 am

    Joe the plumber would be a lvl 35 Human warrior with minor profiencies in engineering and blacksmithing… your average guy.

    Anywho I could see this coming seeing as the Internet does lean more towards the liberal side in my opinion.Eitherway it was really neat!

  11. TheGallant on November 3rd, 2008 8:47 am

    That was actually really entertaining. Why hasn’t this been done before, for like, everything. Ever.

  12. TweAK on November 3rd, 2008 8:51 am

    that was epic

    wasnt lol’z but the fact that he had all those break down in statistics was truely something epic, prehaps he does have a little too much time on his hands but at least he put the ffort in and it wasnt some mcain/obama hate vid

    my god i love being australian

  13. Alpha on November 3rd, 2008 1:52 pm

    Hm. That was fascinating.

    Maybe there should be something done with Halo like this, just go into Social and poll the gamers.

  14. Paulrus on November 3rd, 2008 2:11 pm

    Saw this on GamePolitics. Quite amusing and informative.

  15. GeLaTiNoUs on November 3rd, 2008 2:44 pm

    Personally, I would've seen McCain more along the lines of a human paladin with barack somewhere in the vicinity of a troll mage.

  16. GRiM on November 3rd, 2008 6:07 pm

  20. Animedevildog on November 3rd, 2008 8:00 pm

    Finally! Someone has put politics into a perspective that can be understood.

    Va-Jay-Jay! WTF!! lol 5/5

  21. AlbeyAmakiir on November 3rd, 2008 10:03 pm

    Of course, not all WoW players are even American, so there’ll be pleanty of non-voters there.

    Never mind, it’s working now.

    This should be where somebody does a TF2 one next. Obama would be a spy, McCain a Engie, as for Palin a Sniper. John Biden would be the announcer, not for just being girly, but he doesn’t even come out of hiding. Then again, the announcer is a evil mastermind that ploys both teams to fight against each other, so it seems that I’m giving Biden too much credit here.

    Elves = Democrats
    Dwarves = Republicans

    Elves v.s. Dwarves

  27. Piconjo on November 4th, 2008 7:11 pm

    This video was… horribly inaccurate. I don’t mean to pick out everything wrong with it and come off looking like someone with nerd rage, but during my play time on WoW, this video is just horribly wrong.

    For one, there are 3.5~ million people in the U.S. servers of WoW, not 11 million. That’s the world wide population. And second, if you ask people on the servers they generally all hate Obama, calling him a muslim terrorist blackynignig or whatever.

    Also that warlock was fucking stupid, voting for Democrats because she wants the govt. to stay out of her vuh-jay-jay. Democrats are for more government, and Republicans are for less government. Whatever, those are my thoughts.

  28. T3h Shizzn1t on November 5th, 2008 7:38 pm

    And now Obama iz t3h w1nn4rz!!!!

    I thought this vid was entertaining, but not humurous at the least. It may be just me, but it sounded like he was forcing the humor into his commentaries.

    tsk tsk tsk…

    I’ve never played WOW, if it’s really worth a monthly fee, let me know…
