Postal 2, a little known video game released in 2003, is so violent that it has been totally banned in the country of Australia. It is highly controversial due to it's incredibly violent gameplay, explicit language, and frequent stereotyping. In this one-player game, you take on the role of "The Postal Dude," a creepy looking man who wanders around the city of Paradise. You are assigned mundane tasks to accomplish, but in order to accomplish these seemingly simple tasks you must commit insanely violent acts. The clip embedded above gives a sampling of the game; you can see the "Dude" killing seemingly innocent people with all types of weapons: ice-picks, samurai swords, and guns. The developers of the game counter the criticism of violence by claiming that the amount of violence is up to the players. By making the player responsible for how much or how little violence is committed, the game developer aims to place responsibility on the video gamer for his/or her violent tendencies. The violence, drug use, and sexuality displayed in Postal 2 is so tasteless and senseless. The game received a substantial amount of negative attention after it was revealed that Dawson College (Montreal) school shooter Kimveer Gill was a fan of the game. Regardless of the mindless violence expressed during gameplay, some critics have positive things to say about the game. Linux and Macintosh developer Ryan C. Gordon says that he feels the game holds a mirror to the worst aspects of modern society, saying that the game is "a brilliant caricature of our mangled, disconnected, fast-food society, disguised as a collection of dirty jokes and ultraviolence." So watch the video and see what you guys think of this game: is it meant to be a subtle shot at American society or is it simply just another incredibly violent video game?
