Arguably, getting high is more about enjoying the experience than enjoying individual activities. And the video game Everything is perfect when you’re really blazed.
This game is nothing but exploring as different creatures while navigating heady philosophical quotes that help you feel super deep.
2. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is less of a game and more of a full-body experience. It’s friendly enough to button-mashing players that anyone can get in there and do great things.
But there is also so much going on onscreen that it is pleasantly hypnotizing just to watch other players go at it.
3. Skyrim in VR
Skyrim is one of the most immersive games ever made, and the VR version takes things to the next level.
Playing it while high off your ass is basically the next best thing to escaping this harsh reality.
4. Grand Theft Auto V
The sandbox nature of Grand Theft Auto V really comes to life when you’re smoking a doobie.
You can try to keep it together long enough to do complex missions or simply zone out the entire night as a virtual cab driver.
There's nothing quite like the serotonin blast from making four lines disappear in Tetris.
Combining that serotonin blast with your favorite herbs makes Tetris feel like a brand new game.
6. Super Mario Bros. 35
Most battle royale games like Fortnite are not great when you’re stoned.
But Super Mario Bros. 35 allows you to play against others while just making your way through the first Super Mario Bros. game.
Consider this the ultimate test of your muscle memory while your mind wanders far away.
7. No Man’s Sky
No Man’s Sky is another game where the open design is even more enjoyable while high.
Your body already feels like it’s on another world, so why not build a spaceship and go find it?
8. Super Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
On paper, mastering Super Mario Kart 8 Deluxe requires a lot of skill and practice.
But simply enjoying the game takes little more than a lot of button-mashing and a few good friends. And the right combo of indica and sativa brings these insane tracks to life.
9. Stardew Valley
Stardew Valley finds that perfect combination between cartoony graphics and chill gameplay that is great when your mind is a bit foggy.
The fact that you can spend all of your virtual day fishing is great when you’re feeling a little too couch-locked by your choices.
10. Duck Hunt
There's already a blissful zen to Duck Hunt: they fly, you shoot. But throw in a second player controlling ducks with the second controller and you have a recipe for a true stoners’ night in.
11. Halo Master Chief Collection
The Master Chief Collection is already great nostalgia catnip for longtime Halo players.
And the ability to select favorite games and game types (Action Sack, anyone?) helps you customize the experience based on how far gone everyone is.
12. Rocket League
Rocket League is already a sports game you can recommend to gamers who hate sports games.
But the combination of fast gameplay and gravity-defying physics makes this oddly engaging to play while you're faded.
13. Katamari Damacy
Katamari Damacy is a perfect example of charming and original gameplay.
And moving your character all around the world while unable to leave your own couch is an experience you will never forget.
Minecraft may as well be custom made for stoners. The chill music and nostalgic designs are a great way to zone out and relax.
You can split your time between creating your own awesome world and exploring what other people have created.
Journey is a beautiful and engrossing game, and a few tokes before playing makes it feel absolutely magical.
The best thing is trying to communicate with other random players you run into with no voice chat, all while your mind slowly unravels.
