Video by Matt S. 

I’d never played a Postal game before these last couple of weeks, but thankfully the “remake” of the original, notorious, game on Nintendo Switch gave me a chance to experience it.

As a fan of transgressive art, I was very keen to look at why this game has the reputation that it does. However, now that I have played it, I’ve got to say that I don’t think it’s that transgressive at all. Certainly not in comparison to transgressive works in other art forms.

So in this video, I discuss transgression, what it means as an artistic term, and how it might be relevant to games like Postal. I also highlight a couple of examples of games that I do believe to be very transgressive.

Let me know your own thoughts!
