The world of the online video game store Steam is an interesting, interesting place. In the Steam store you can find, well, pretty much anything. From the bizarre Shower with Your Dad Simulator to the somewhat less tame, yet equally disturbing, Goat Simulator, if you can imagine it, then it probably exists somewhere out there. One of my personal favorite simulators on the steam store is called Surgeon Simulator, which until recently I had only ever played at my friend's house. After learning about the newest addition to the game, however, I've been convinced to spend the whopping $2.59 to play the wonderful game. So what exactly is this new addition that has everybody talking?
Inside Donald Trump - Surgeon Simulator
That's right, the business man turned unlikely Republican Presidential nominee has yet another video game made in his honor (or in many cases out of hatred, but all publicity is good publicity, amirite?) The people behind the widely popular simulator describe this free update as such:
Love him or hate him, you cannot ignore him, and now, you get to operate on him. Inspired by this year’s most talked about political event, we invite you to cast your vote in our FREE update for Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition on Steam. Make your choice, Donald Trump: stone-hearted villain, or gold-hearted hero?
Does The Don have a Gold-heart or a Stone-heart?
Once you purchase the game, you get to decide whether the possible future President of the United States should get a gold-heart or a stone-heart, then see those choices displayed in real time on the website! Right now, it appears as if the players of Surgeon Simulator are rather split between The Don's place in the world (with 40% giving him a gold transplant and 60% handing him a stone heart).
What else do I get from the update?
Aside from the hilarious option of casting Trump as a hero or a villain, the creators of the game have also thrown in some cheeky "medical" items based on some of Trump's most iconic products including:
Yes, those are all real things the Republican nominee has attached his name too. Could this election year get any crazier? Trump entered this race as a relative nobody (a TV reality star) and is now the most talked about person in the country. Few people have the...err...distinct honor of having a simulator based on them, but I guess that's what happens when everyone in the country has a super strong opinion about you. Love him or hate him, you have to enjoy cutting him open and giving him a heart transplant! If you'll excuse me, I'll be spending the next several hours playing Surgeon Simulator.
