15 Video Games That Mock You For Playing On Easy Mode

13. Postal 2

Postal 2
Running With Scissors

If you play on the easiest difficulty in Postal 2, all enemy characters will be armed with shovels instead of guns, which may not exactly sound like a punishment, until you realise that there's no actual ammo to collect because nobody drops any.

If that wasn't bad enough, Postal 2 also punishes players for playing the game on anything below "Average" difficulty by restricting access to "Enhanced" mode, which sucks because that's one of the most entertaining aspects of the game.

The police metre also takes a lot longer to disappear, meaning that you can end up being endlessly pursued by the authorities throughout the entire game.
