Andres Serrano?


Postal 2 is a lot more wacky, but still violent and super offensive.

Postal 2 is such an incredibly dumb game... I don't know why I enjoy it as much as I do.

Unfortunately most of the particularly entertaining stuff goes out the window on POSTAL difficulty, which of course I had to start pushing through because I feel the need to prove something.
My opinion on Postal 2 is nearly the polar opposite. What's not to like? It knows it is absolutely stupid and relishes in it, and the general style of gameplay and range of weapons is incredibly unique and fun. How many other games have anthrax infected heads as a weapon?

Postal 2 is probably the only game which my mother TOTALLY forbade me from playing it. When she saw me playing Postal 2, she gave me a rant about how disgusting the game is, and how sadistic and obscene it is. Hell, she even ended up calling it a "terrorist simulator". Then she turned the computer off and destroyed Postal 2 installation file, which came on a USB flash drive.

And as a personal note: My mother used to be unusually open with what I play, and right now, when I've reached legal adulthood, she doesn't care what I play at all. The only thing I need from her is confirmation to spend money on video games.

"incredibly dumb game" ... but the actual narrative structure of Postal 2 is genius though, with all the groups out to get you by the end representing different aspects of human stupidity. It's the sort of "Dumb" that's actually genius, in a South Park sort of way.

Itís dumb in the sense that itís just incredibly silly and weird, which is not inherently a bad thing. I personally like it a lot.

It actually is, via legal loophole you can purchase it from their site without issue. The game, however, I'd say is a 6.5/10 at best, coupling some very good maps and design choices with ideas unarguably much worse. It's not the broken game it was on release, but it's not worth purchasing full price IMO. The dev team was very active and responsive and fixed some issues literally just an hour after I reported them.

I still love it, though. I haven't seen destruction and fire physics on par with it since Far Cry 2 or Red Faction.

Games are wonderfully about lots and lots of things so I think you can have a good game based off of physics, story, mood, gameplay, variability, progression, punchy shooting, punchy punching, multiplayer, player trolling, or any combination of those things.

(Of course my favorites are the ones that combine mood, story, and player trolling juuuuust right. Too bad you can almost certainly only experience such a thing properly one time...)
