5 Best Games to Play while High or Stoned

Sitting around a console or computer and killing a few hours playing video games is a favourite pastime among stoners. And whether you’re on your own or with a group of friends that you’d like to show your skills off to, there is no shortage of video games that will help you waste the day away. We’ve found five of the best games to play while high or stoned; but whether you want to embark on a quest or kill some zombies, there’s definitely a game out there for you.


1. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Honestly, every single version of Mario Kart that’s ever been released has been good. But when making a list about the five best games, it’s really the latest version that should be included – especially with all the new features Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has to offer.

With the latest version of this racing game you’ll get several new characters including Gold Mario, Inkling Girl (and Inkling Boy) and even a little Bowser Jr. This game will thrill you in all the same ways it used to; and while you’re feeling as though your head is in the clouds, you’ll be trying to maneuver Mario through them, too!


2, Minecraft

Known as “the game of blocks”, it’s truly so much more. Choose survival mode when you’re feeling adventurous and want to be the ultimate destroyer of zombies and skeletons with crossbows. As you work to not just build your own world, you’ll also have to take care of minor housekeeping tasks such as your health and hunger. If they suffer, so do you.

Of course, those who just want to create after smoking a bowl can do so in creative mode, where you can just create your own peaceful world filled with all the wonderful things you love. And, to take the mellow one step further, you can do it all to the soothing sounds of the background music.


3. The Walking Dead

But this game isn’t only about getting your fix while playing a truly cool game. It’s also about making some big decisions in life, and pondering what the consequences of your choices might be. For those who like to get deep into their minds while stoned and question all aspects of life, this is the game you’ve been waiting for.


4. Ridiculous Fishing

ridiculous-fishing-gameWhat’s better when you’re high than something that is just truly and utterly ridiculous? The creators of Ridiculous Fishing know this, and so they came up with a game that may as well be marketed as being specifically for stoners. All you have to do is go fishing. It’s simple enough for even the most stoned player, yet you also get to drop a load of ammunition into any fish you catch once you’ve reeled them in. And there’s just something about shooting at stuff when you’re high that’s fun.

There’s a reason this game collected awards when it was first released a few years ago; and more than one reason why it’s remained just as popular after all this time!


5. Skate

Sometimes after smoking a joint you just want to hop on your skateboard and ride away. And when you don’t, you might want to settle into the couch to do it all in a virtual world without any of the thought put into it. That’s what the amazingly simple Skate game does. No zombies will jump out on the half-pipe, and you won’t have to narrowly miss trees or cars, either. All you have to do is skate.

That’s the entire beauty of this game; it’s great for those that just want to zone out. The soundtrack will keep you from zoning out too far, and will keep you going with tunes from Nirvana, David Bowie, The Ramones, and more. For those that like to be a little more current with their games, and their musical choices, sequels Skate 2 and Skate 3 are just as good.

When all you want to do is smoke some bud and settle in for a serious session killing zombies (or your friend’s character), there are as many video games out there as there are hours in need of wasting. These are just the top ones we consider to be some of the very best.
