What makes for a good mayor? Fiscal responsibility? Honesty? Leadership skills? The will to make tough decisions? All of the above would probably be a good start for any human being tasked with running a city. Depending on circumstance and that person's ability, said city will either ascend into prosperity, or plummet into financial ruin.
Thanks to SimCity's release, we got to thinking: Which video game characters would make particularly awful mayors? It's a tough call, really--these are fictional folks, many of whom have performed numerous heroic deeds. But one cannot run a city on bravery alone. These storied champions may have saved a world or two, but gods help us if they're ever put in charge of a single city's government.
