It’s 420. I can only assume that you are high from smoking pounds of weed by now. As a fine upstanding blogger I’ve never smoked mariweed before (that’s what you kids call it right?). Despite this, I shall try to appease you, gentle readers, on the number one holiday in America by showering you in weed facts and foibles relating to video games.
The best games to play high
What’s better than video games on 420? Don’t answer that. If you are paying enough attention to answer it, you aren’t high enough or playing enough games. Good. Now I imagine you want to know which games are best play high. After a great deal of research on Google, I’ve collected the advice of experts on the subject of marijuana induced recreation such as highideas.com, grasscity.com, wearebaked.com, wonderfulworldofcannabis.com, and the highest of them all, digg.com. After this research I can share a group of games that made the most lists.
Blow your mind with the gravity bending effects of the different worlds that Mario visits. The colors and whimsy will also have you rolling on the floor in an emotion that you can’t quite remember the name of.
The quirky snowboarding classic will have you jumping thousands of feet in the area to do five cartwheels in the air before landing and speeding away like gravity never existed. The colors! The boards! The ridiculous soundtrack! You’ll be so happy and high that you will almost believe that snowboarding is real. A new version of the game came out to great reviews earlier this year. Check it out to be the most relevant bong hitting snowboard game player on your block.
None of the Super Smash titles really have a plot anyway, so you won’t be too confused to follow it. That way you can focus on the many colors, lights, the constant and crazy action in the levels, and the zany cast of characters. Nothing beats floating around as Kirby on practice mode for four straight hours.
This game seriously sold me on getting a Playstation, and that was just a demo of the title. You complete actions to listen to catchy, trippy songs. A fan favorite is learning about karate from an a rapping Japanese man with a smelly Onion for a head. It’s amazing. It only gets better with substance abuse. (I’m told.)
It’s great to play high for all the reasons as Super Smash Bros. Only, Mario Cart has you speeding around at a breakneck pace. On a rainbow. A RAINBOW ROAD!
Grand Theft Auto IV is an open world game where you can steal and destroy anything. You can also shoot anything, and more importantly go bowling. Grand Theft Auto IV pretty much gives you the opportunity to see what would happen if you could get super blazed and just do anything. It’s not a pretty sight, but it sure is fun.
You are an alien prince tasked with rolling things together to make a giant ball. Why? Because the developers must have been as high as you are! Anything and everything can get rolled into your ball as you gain power, from nickels to people to skyscrapers. If rolling people into a ball while giggling maniacally sounds fun to you, then you are the average person. Unleash your fun.
Left for Dead 2
It might seem strange at first to see a game about a shooting disgusting undead monsters on so many best games to play high lists, but that’s just the point. Playing this game high is terrifying. Want to know what it’s like to be in the middle of a zombie apocalypse — pop this puppy in and blaze up. Apparently, people scream like babies while they play this. Deep down they learn something: how to survive a fictional disaster. That, and how to have some fun scared.
My addition: Geometry Wars 2
How can this not be on lists? This game is about being a colored shape, shooting other colored shapes with more color to make them explode into color fireworks. That sounds like the perfect game to play high. I’m convinced that the game was meant to be played high. I’m pretty sure that playing it will make you high. Play this game high. You’ll thank me later. When you get to it. Someday. Not today. Today is 420.
Editor’s Note: If you happen to read this post on a day that is not 420, fret not. We have been told that you can smoke potijuana on other dates. We are sure what dates. Just know that this article is still relevant to you …if you’re into that.
