What would your ideal 'Be President' Game be?

With the possibility of Anthony and 270soft working on a new president game, I was wondering what your ideal game be.

I'd love one where you choose the cabinet, and try to court the Senate into approving them. Also try to establish a foreign policy by meeting with the G-20 leaders or EU. Meet with intelligence officials to decide how to combat terrorism. In the meantime meet with party official- congressman or governor- in tryinh to pass legislation.

I love Domestic Policy so something with a detailed way of Congressional Bill approval dynamics.

Honestly, I will probably adore the game as long as it is complex. However, a relatively small feature I would like included would be real consequences of your cabinet choice, as well as your support being strengthened/weakened among certain groups due to your picks. 

For example, let's say that I have elected Bernie Sanders/Elizabeth Warren to the White House. We obviously have an incredibly progressive ticket, and I appoint Tulsi Gabbard to secretary of state. This would perhaps make populists view me more favorably, but progressives and establishment Democrats might not be as receptive. If I picked Rand Paul, there would be a good deal of the party questioning me :P 

If it was not obvious, senate objections would need to be included, including showing the player the final vote on each appointment. They could even be rejected, if appalling.

I agree, as long as complex I'm sure it'll be great! Those are good points as well.

Maybe you could have some favorability ratings with important people in your party, not your cabinet, but say, your senate leader, your house leader, the whip, etc and this makes it easier to get things passed.

I like this idea. Especially if you could have a randomized or customized background. For instance, attempting to become a major politician as someone that did not go to any ivy league school, and has never made more than $45,000 a year.

Like Abraham Lincoln (who read law in rural Kentucky and was never rich at all in his life, apparently).

I guess we could go the Crusader Kings route, and each trait of your character can either add or subtract to your age.

Lincoln actually didn't spend much time in Kentucky.  His family moved to Indiana and eventually to Springfield, Illinois which is where he made his career.

Someone just today created a game like this.  I am now running for Governor in Michigan.  Please do not move there and run against me. :D

Yes.  I am currently the most influential politician in Michigan by 1% and run unopposed for Governor:  http://oppressive.games/power/state.php?state=MI

Unfortunately, it looks like Michigan's two Senate seats will go Democratic this week along with control of the national chamber:  http://oppressive.games/power/senate.php

Our national party chairman really needs to get active and distribute the $1 million+ in funds he has down ballot so that us Republican candidates running for Governor and Senator spend our time on ads and rallies instead of fundraising:  http://oppressive.games/power/party.php?party=2

Yes.  Ted Cruz just sent me $10,000 though, so I am somewhat quieted.  But that's less than 1% of his loot, and I need more.  ;)

Okay im just going to copy and past what I made on the blog post of the game way back so here it is:

This would be amazing but i have a few questions.
One would this be a 3d engine or like president infinity? Honestly i would prefer something like PI cause Geopolitcal simulators a wreck and thats the most realistic game out there.
Will there be events,will you be able to decide what your miltitary does(attack a country) such as the debate between having ground troops to fight isis or just bombings.
Will the elections be like PI cause they need to be basically a copy and paste of that because its perfect.
Will you be able to raise and lower taxes,pass bills which will acorse effect your approval and such.
I think this needs to be added to PI in general but diffrent races have diffrent approvals of you.
This also needs to be added to PI and this game but breaking off from your current party and running as a 3rd party.
If your approval goes way to low,or you do something unconstitutional you get thrown out of office should be added,also the option to play as the new president and have an election.
Historical wars and elections,like the cival war and revolutinary war,WW1,WW2,korean,vietnam,iraq,etc. and to play them out by building your army
This is a big one and would be an awesome feature
changing governments! This means there should be more than 5 canidates aloud like for example before you start your game you can choose to play as a pre existing canidate or make your own decide your views(can be communist,soicialist,etc.) also congress and senate elections to pass bills(GPS did this well)things such as encourgaging a certain party to get more socialists or something like that such as victoria 2 if you get enough support(which would be extremely unlikely) you can change to a communism,socialism etc. also if you get enough support for the military have a military dictatorship(these would be more likely in diffrent time frames for example it would be much more likely to have a tottaly dif government in the 1800’s then today,or have a socialist government in the 20’s) all these would be absolutely amazing i think it could be good just like a full screen PI style map plus it wouldnt take as much time that would
Be an Absolutely perfect game that i dream of playing! Thanks anythony hopefully you guys can pull that off:) End part 1

 

Also in that pre game screen if you make a custom chracter you can start a new party also or run as one of the tons of pre made parties Hopefully so thats what i ment like a pre game screen (chossing a real canidate),also maybe an option to verse a canidate(obama 2012) for example who is running for re election Also the canidates that ran that year for example And also if you lose the election to win the presidency you can just sim till the next election or wait it out and see what happens i also believe there should be extensive stat tracking such as approval ratings,election results,previous election maps and results would be amazing Basically the election and primary process should be PI Defiantly want a fleshed out game as i described,also detailed stats from your candidate who you choose to make (kinda like a career) such as your previous election/primary results and a brief history written by the game for you and something such as if you just decide to wait out elections and “endorse” people and help out with campaigns you can have a percentage of people who would vote from you from each state if you were to run for president also @Dylan that is my absolute DREAM game i love it! also maybe like in a character creation screen there can be diffrent pass things that give certain bonuses (mayor,state representative,athlete,businessman,celebrity) i honestly think this could be done and would absolutely love it that combined with the ideas ive stated would be my DREAM game and a perfect simulator i think you should have 4 options and could run for any and how good you do influences how good you would do as a president i think you should be able to start out whatever the youngest is if you want to (still have to be a certain age obviously) and you do the exact job of your job and however good you do is peoples opinion and push you to run for president and basically it would just be a political life simulator @anthony combine our ideas and make this happen! make a kickstarter ill sink 100$ into a game like this and obviously they could fit the county votes for the state elections just double click on it and it shows you the polling numbers! i think for every election process it should go like PI though. Also id you choose to create a new party on your character creation screen i think you should be able to manage in and grow it the premade parties should be (republican,democrat,libertarian,green,constitution,independent) and when you make a new party you acore choose the values and you can get your party out there by trying to get people to join it this would
Just add some fun and even more replayability for the game! lso if people so choose to do so because it has enough popularity diffrent people could run in that party (wether it be real people,or random gen basically both) also it could add to your bonuses that you created a party and it doesnt have to be a pre game screen you can create it anytime you just need the funds to boast its popularity :)! ou should also be able to run as VP if you have really good relation with the elected president they should be able to ask you and you ask them to and of course you do the duties of the VP and just like other officies it gives you a boost running for something else i think there should be atleast descions on wars,and reports on your army what to do with them,how many casualties etc. some people may be war mongering presidents I truly think you guys should add the option to start and run for senator,governor,and rep. (This wouldnt even need countys just a general vote) I truly believe this would fully make this game,then you just jump into whatever presidental race you want to(you can have canidates loaded up for future elections to jump in) I seriously think this would take this game to the next level.  id like to know this as well,I believe it would be amazing to run as a sen,then rep for example and work your way up to gov then pres. Growing the party as a whole at the same time. Perhaps getting others to join the party? (A dem to green or rep to lib) I think this would provide thousands of hours of fun,this game would be groundbreakig for us political game fans,this is what weve been waiting for,there was this game made by a professor called election day,you could run for mayor all the way up to pres but hes ceased to update it. @anthony you can really make this game amazing and groundbreaking by adding being a sen,gov,and rep and then even a VP then prez to working your way up the political ladder,making decisions these positions have to make,just seeing what happens through the years you should really do this idea @anthony this is what we want as an election sim community. i believe its the point of actually being a sen rep and gov..I think you guys could obviously do it especially with todays technology…if a professor did it in 1994 you guys can do it now. It is what the political sim community wants…we have a game that your just president already its geopolitcal simulator we want a game were u have a politcal career of sorts and you guys would be the best to do it. ou guys can truly do something special here with a politcal career sim of sorts..we have a presidental sim game out there. Do something special and make a politcal career sim! (Sen,gov,rep,VP,prez) its 2016 its about time we have a game like this. Its been a long enough wait for the politcal game community and everyone wants it  i ask u one request i know my political career sim was alittle ambitious,but please and many have said they want us to. After our terms are up and we maxed out to continue,for example being able to play from 1788-2020! Please im asking you this. We have vcczar whose made every election up to 1956 you guys can do it for a president simulator! This will make this game next level and uncanncey replayable,being able to start in any year we wanted from the first election till now. And after this election you can for example make all sen,gov,rep,major mayors,and celeberties and they have the possibly to join. And after that it can just be random gen. This would make this game amazing! Please I think even just having to play as that same party would be a good option for those 200 years,and if the ai incumbent then it acourse affects the % if there even beatable or not,for example im preety sure inc george washington (if the player decides to activite him) is un beatable after a party split,such as the progressive party,you should be able to choose to stay w republicans and then go back after that year,basically just staying within the party,idk about a party leader but just being able to play as a canidate from the begging to present would be awesome I want STATS STATS STATS! Being able to look at exact results from previous elections,blocks of previous elections,how each group views you,approval ratings,everything that is coming to PI,Very early primary polling.
I think we should be able to control the party itself. Starting from the first election to the newest. Since its presidental exclusive.

Could U focus heavily on making this as realistic as possible on stats and realism I 100% want these here my suggestions

-Being able to wait in between elections if you lose
-Congress integration,showing what each house gets and being able to watch that on election night also
-Continuous play,I know you said you probably wont be doing this But I really hope you pull the trigger and do it,being able to play the first election ever till the
future
-With this I want be able to check back on every elections results and the state by states results
-Since it would be continuous you could choose to play somebody diffrent or the same if you win but It has to be in the same party
-Being able to break off during the primaries and run as third party
-The previous election results affects the one you would be presently in
-Countrys shifts onto diffrent views
-I wish you could let us run for representative and senator you dont have to make every states districts just let us run and look at the results,it wouldnt have to be nearly as fleshed out as president. We would just vouche for bills and Yay nay them and this would affect our reputation
-Being a real commander and chief being able to send how many soldiers you want to and all that airstrikes taking out big targets and such
-Controlling what Pacts your in like UN and NAFTA
-With playing for future elections you could just have all the political figures that are currently now have the possibility to run,you can also have randomly generated
I hopy you integrate these Ideas and I will post more thank you anthony

Real candidates(1788-present)

-Start with being able to play from 1788-present

-if your term limits are up or if its before the bill to limit reelection gets passed die, you are able to continue to play as your party from whenever you want to (if you want to play from 1788 to today with all events happening you can)

-Being able to have the option to continue as another one of your parties candidates after your term limits are up

-Senate/H.O.R opinion on a candidate has effect on if a bill/law gets passed

-Custom Character creation(pre game)

-Custom characters option to choose previous field (Senator,Rep,Athlete,Businessman,Governor.,etc.)and what they were effects there attributes and opinions

-Third party option(or 4th,5th,etc. depending on what partys existed in that time)

-Full control over the military

-Full stats for all elections in a history book of sort for your game also wars and casualties on each side who won,cost,opinion,etc. also for your current game what states and everything approve on you and who'd vote for you,and states views just like PI

-Elections exactly like or better than President Infinity

-All historical events and your decisions depend on if they happen

-depending on what time it is depends on certain opinions of laws and parties

-All third parties/other parties that got atleast 10,000 votes in every election are an option!(includes socialist,communist,constitution,libertarian,peace and freedom,green,independent,reform,etc. thats just for the present also whatever ones existed in that elections time period)

-depending on the time period strength and opinion of third parties change

-third parties can win senate and H.O.R seats

-Being able to change every aspect of the budget an this has affect of opinion

-Religion,ethnicity,gender,age group,job area(low-class,mid-class,Upper-class)opinion (also stats for who votes for you what percentage of a group wants you)

-promising certain things during your campaign and presidency and this affects your approval,voting chance,etc.

-Full blown scenario editor (also if there would already be premade state maps with countys already in so i could run for governor thatd be great!)

 

These were compiled from the first day of announcement to last month (Some stuff may be repeated)
