Postal is a video game that lets the player do almost anything, including peeing on police officers as a performable action within the 2003 game.
While most games let the player navigate and interact with the world around them, such as by picking up items or shooting in-game firearms, this game takes it a step further to include urination as something you can do within the game.
Here’s more about this strange feature found in Postal 2, and why it’s been called one of the most violent and inappropriate video games ever produced.
Postal 2 lets the player perform various actions in the game, including walking around the game universe and shooting firearms. But one of the stranger features in the game is the ability to urinate on others, including police officers who are usually trying to arrest or detain the player for doing something illegal.
The strange feature makes other characters in the game react in disgust: some start vomiting, while other characters will start to shoot at the player when this function has been used.

The first game called Postal was released in 1997, and was initially praised for its top-down graphics and interactive universe.
In 2003, the second game in the series was released – and aimed to be more controversial than most video games would ever risk to try.
