* DownloadableContent: While Paradise Lost is a straight example, being an expansion pack, the AprilFoolsDay event parodies this. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hrty0XUPjVI On the main menu]], the player will be greeted with a "Paid DLC (NEW!!!)" option, all filled with silly DLC ([[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Champ Armor]] [[TakeThat for $2.50]] and a Gary Coleman Romance Path for $6.99) with equally silly pricing (The Super-Fun Pigeon Hunter Mission costing $59.99 and the Uncensored Dude Willy costing $69.99), with the game even counting your "Money wasted". None of it actually exists though, since trying to actually buy it will result in the Dude chiding you.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtificialStupidity: If you hang around for a while without using a weapon, chances are that you'll see a random pedestrian pull out their gun and try to shoot at whoever is nearby, which usually results in them being gunned down by police.

**Although much of the RWS Building is very quiet when you first visit it on Monday, it's recommended that you snoop around. In one of the board rooms at the back of the building, you can find a pistol and [[MoreDaka a Machine Gun]], with the latter being the best weapon available to you so early in the game.

On 20 May, 2016, RWS released POSTAL Redux, an HD remake of the original Postal, on Steam.

* InfantImmortality: Played with. [[spoiler:The final level is called "School", but it's all scripted. The Dude shows up and opens fire on a playground, but the children aren't affected. Then he has his BSOD. On the other hand, the kids from that level seem to be the same shorter sprites you ''can'' kill during the game, so who knows?]]

* RevolversAreJustBetter: Redux introduces a revolver that's '''very''' powerful.
*[[spoiler:StealthSequel: Redux is implied to be this. The Diary entries all state 2017 instead of 1997, there's a skeleton in the Dude's cell (presumably the original P1!Dude, and the psychiatrist is now voiced by Corey Cruise.]]

**[[spoiler:The final level in Redux, "The End", has the Dude attend a funeral, before what looks likes collapsing with grief.]]

Before Uwe Boll brought us 2007's [[SoBadItsGood magnificent masterpiece of film]], ''Postal'', there was the ''Postal'' videogame series, developed by Running With Scissors, which started with 1997's ''Postal''. Arguably one of the most unsettling PC games ever created, and one that attracted a good dose of attention from the MoralGuardians, it puts you in the shoes of "The Postal Dude", who believes himself the OnlySaneMan in a world gone mad ([[AxCrazy he's not]]). As such, he goes on a bloody rampage, shooting it out with cops, soldiers, and innocent bystanders alike. While it has attained some CultClassic status in recent years, it's generally considered to not have have aged that well.

** Murdering an innocent old woman, picking on and abusing a mentally handicapped man in a wheelchair for cheap money, having sex with The Postal Dude's wife behind his back and all around just being a complete douche. His partner John is simply depicted as an [[FunnyForeigner incompetent foreigner]] who watches and lets Greg do his terrible actions without question. Luckily, [[KarmicDeath they get their just deserts]] when [[spoiler: they get trapped in The Postal Dude's trailer because his wife is too fat to fit through the doorway just as the nuke destroys Paradise.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: {{Averted}}. Even within the satirical, over-the-top context of the movie, the treatment the Dude's wife gives her husband is still presented as bad.
