Despite half-way being made to parody violent video games, Postal and Postal 2 have received flack for its content from the NRA and other pro-censorship groups for years. The game was brought out as a chief example during the Supreme Court case regarding the sale of mature content to minors.

The game does let you perform unspeakable acts of evil like shooting off a random woman's head only to piss on her corpse, douse her in gasoline and self-immolate as you burn together with her so your souls may be merged in eternity, but who really takes this stuff seriously anyway?
