Tuesday's elections in the United States provided the grist for our two-week shop contest, imagining, examing and implementing political motives in video games and their characters. We've rounded up the 20 best in this gallery. E pluribus funny!

adventlife (1), DEVOlutionSpud (5), HobbitGamer (11) and Snufkin (18) all made political hay out of the Obama Hope poster; xerokitsune (20) took his inspiration from an Eisenhower/Nixon poster. WalnutSoap (19) went well outside the box for a jab at Palin, now hunting penguins instead of wolves. Futhark (8) and ilikejelly (12) both did justice to Jimmy McMillan of the Rent Is Too Damn High Party.

bowen13 (3) had a sly take on a polarizing billboard; sensai.gamer's Kennedy-In-The-VATS 'shop is so, so wrong ... Any other week, and HappyGamer (10) probably would take home No. 1. But PoopMcGreeley (15) is my personal favorite and the winner. Triumph the Insult Comic Dog is at his best when he skewers an overexposed celebrity, and Guitar Hero provided more than enough funny fodder. For me to poop on!

See you all in here tomorrow.
