After getting a pot delivery and consuming a portion of it on your own or sharing it with your friends, you might be looking for activities that will allow you to chill, laugh, and embrace being blitzed. One of the best ways to do this alone or with others is by immersing yourself in a video game.
Whether you’re looking to indulge in a cerebral experience, give yourself a fright, watch others scare themselves silly, or even compete in a game that demands focus and a bit of physicality, you’re sure to find the right game to play while being completely baked! Check out these six best video games to play while you’re high on weed.
Rather than a challenging game, Flower is designed to be fun and to evoke a wider variety of emotional responses. This award-winning game developed by Thatgamecompany does exactly this by doing away with gameplay mechanics and elements that do not evoke the desired response from players. The end result is an uplifting work of art that is well-received by critics and has earned plenty of recognition from award-giving bodies. Casual gamers and people on a high will surely be captivated by Flower’s relaxing visuals, music, narrative, and overall emotional arc.
If you’re looking for games that offer a perfectly relaxing atmosphere like Flower, you can check out the other games developed by the same independent game development studio Thatgamecompany. These include Flow, Journey, and Sky: Children of Light.
Jackbox Party Pack 3
Now, if you’re looking for a bunch of games that you can enjoy with a group of friends who are just as high as you, then Jackbox Party Pack 3 has you covered. This set includes many engaging games that are sure to inspire hours of laughter and enjoyment.
There’s Trivia Murder Party, which is akin to your typical trivial game with a deadly twist, and Quiplash 2, where players respond to prompts and the audience gets to decide the best answer. In addition to this, there’s also the survey game Guesspionage, the drawing game Tee K.O., and Fakin’ It, where a faker has to hide among the players. It’s a great set of games if you just want to hang out with friends and laugh with each other.
Played sober, a game of Mario Kart can put your reflexes to the test. Played while high, the game is a blast. If you want to stay glued to the couch for the rest of the afternoon while competing with friends or even people online, you can do just that while gaining a deeper appreciation for the game’s art style. Even playing with an AI on Mario Kart is fun when you’re high but not keen on interacting socially with other people.
Richie’s Plank Experience
If you have a VR set and you’re keen on scaring yourself while baked, check out Richie’s Plank Experience. This game is pretty straightforward: you just have to walk the plank some 80 stories high. It’s a safe and quick way to invoke your fight-or-flight response. Plus, it can be quite entertaining to watch others go through the same experience after you’ve completed your turn.
If you’re looking for another relaxing adventure game after walking the plank, then Abzu, a game developed by Giant Squid Studios, is a perfect choice.
The game, which follows a diver restoring life underwater, is praised for its art style. Abzu is a treat for the eyes both for casual players as well as those who are high on cannabis. The game takes players through an exploration of the ocean, an undertaking that enables them to come across various marine life, ruins, and even ancient technology. By controlling the diver, the player can solve item-based puzzles, interact with fish and other marine animals, and discover how the diver is connected to life in the ocean.
Abzu has been compared to Journey in many ways as they’re both award-winning and evoke similar feelings. That’s not so surprising, as some of the people who worked on Journey also later joined the team that worked on Abzu.
Entertaining games don’t necessarily have to make perfect sense. Katamari Damacy proves this. It’s not that the game doesn’t have rules—it does—but its premise is pretty wacky. Basically, you play as a prince who needs to rebuild the stars and the constellations after these were destroyed by the king, your father. This task is done by rolling a highly adhesive ball around, allowing various items to stick to it along the way, until it’s big enough to be turned into a star. It’s a bit absurd, but it’s fun, especially when played while baked.
Which of these games are you planning to play the next time you’re enjoying your latest batch of marijuana products? No matter if you’re doing it alone or with friends, you can always look at this list for options.
