5 Best Video Games For A Night In
Playing video games while high is a top-tier activity, it’s one of the most common pastimes while being stoned, and for good reason. There’s something about hitting your bong while you’re smashing zombies' brains or traveling through the kingdom of Hyrule that just makes your day perfect.
Video games are an especially good stoner pastime if you are someone who likes to smoke Indica strains and hang out on the couch. Whatever the case though, video games are a classic way to enjoy your high. If you want to do this and just don’t know what games to play you’re in the right place; this guide will tell you the five best video games to play while you’re high (in no particular order).
1 Goat Simulator
Goat simulator is a very dumb game, which makes it a perfect game to play while stoned. The basic idea of the game is that you are a goat trying to cause chaos. So go grab a joint, and lets get started.
You are placed in a variety of different environments where you are running at top speeds and using your horns to destroy everything in your path.
Just imagine passing the blunt around with your friends and taking turns seeing who can cause the most damage as a goat. Have fun running over people, destroying buildings, and throwing yourself off high rises.
2 Beat Saber
Beat Saber is a VR game so it will require that you have a compatible system, but if you do you ought to give it a try while you’re high. If you’re unfamiliar with the game it’s a musical rhythm game where you are trying to hit passing targets to the beat of a number of different songs. Admittedly, this game can come at you fast so you need to have at least a little bit of energy to get into it.
Also, beware that the game is extremely immersive and is full of neon trippy-looking colors. These colors look even better and trippier while you’re high, and they’re constantly changing and passing by you even further adding to their effect.
Plus, the best part about this game is that you get to listen to a bunch of music, which is pretty much a necessity when you smoke weed (and the music is actually good). Oh, and you’re hitting the neon-colored targets with lightsabers, yeah this game is awesome.
3 Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Pretty much any Nintendo game will work well when coupled with a smoke session, but Mario Kart especially. It’s such a classic game and that’s what makes it great.
You’ve probably played this game as a kid, and what better way to go back down memory lane than when you’re high on cloud nine. Plus, if you do revisit memory lane and get nostalgic, telling and hearing those stories will be so much better stoned.
The only downside to Mario Kart is that it’s ten times better as a group game than a solo game, so if you’re going solo you may want to look elsewhere. If you do have a few friends around though, definitely consider Mario kart. Pro-tip— choose your vehicle wisely and look specifically for the fastest kart, don’t worry about stability or anything else. Lastly, it’s worth mentioning briefly that if Mario Kart isn’t your thing or you just don’t like racing games then there are other Nintendo games that can be just as fun and nostalgic, Mario Party and Mario Odyssey come to mind.
4 Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild
Another Nintendo (but non-Mario) game that you should play while high is Zelda. The latest Zelda game, breath of the wild, is truly a masterpiece that everyone needs to experience.
It’s the perfect solo game to play while you’re high, so while the other games are fun in groups this is a good option if you’re smoking alone.
The reason this game is such a good stoner video game is that it has a huge open and diverse world that you are able to explore.
There are tons of different regions that all contain different monsters to conquer and puzzles to solve (being high might even help with some of the puzzles). So feel free to explore the great hyrule forest, hop over to mount lanayru (the water village), and then to wherever else your heart desires.
Just know that this map is huge and you could literally spend half a day just covering all the ground and seeing everything. But rest assured in knowing that for the most part, unless you engage with something you will be left alone, so there won’t be many shocking attacks like in other open world games. This is truly a perfect stoner pastime because you can explore new worlds, fight monsters, and solve puzzles to improve your character.
Rounding out the list is arguably the best game ever made, Minecraft.
You’d have to be living under a rock to not know what Minecraft is, but if you don’t, it’s a building game where you collect different resources and tools to build up whatever you can think of. Best way to do it all? With a massive bong by your side.
And since some of us are most creative when we’re high, just imagine how awesome your creations could look. And make sure to use these creative sparks to your advantage. Don’t just pick up on a project you had started earlier and definitely don’t google any tutorials on how to build something. Build out of pure creativity and you will be happy you did, stoner minds are quite amazing.
On top of the building part of the game, at night a collection of monsters like zombies, huge spiders, and skeletons come out and those are fun to slay. The serene music is also a nice touch that will keep stoners locked in. In fact, beware, Minecraft is so entertaining to stoners that you will lose track of time, and before you know it you've played all day (and built an awesome fortress). Take a few tokes from your dab rig and get building.
