Best games to play while stoned on 4/20

Too high to pick a game to play on 4-20? Don't worry about it, we've narrowed the list down to just 5 awesome games for you!

It's the highest time of the year again! With 4/20 upon us, there's no better time to call in sick for work, order a couple of 20 bags, and wind down with some epic games to go with the mood. And while you're waiting for the buzz to kick in, you get the chance to pick the games you're going to play. So, knowing our audience, we've done the work for you. Here are 5 epic games to play while you're stoned!

And of course, Gameskinny doesn't condone the use of heavy machinery while under the influence of marijuana.


There is no better description for Slither.io other than Classic Snake on Steroids. This Agar.IO spin-off makes for hours of fun, when you're completely sober. Now add some pot to the mix and you have an instant success story! The best part? You only need one hand to play, for when the munchies inevitably hit you.

And if you get too high to figure it out, we've got some Slither.io guides to help you out.


If you're already high while reading this, we're talking about Grand Theft Auto 5 -- you know, the game where you can basically run around shooting people, run over prostitutes, and beat people with a bat? If you're in the mood for a crazy time, there's no better place to take your high than a game of GTA 5. Just keep the people bashing contained in the safety of your TV.

Mortal Kombat X

If you happen to be getting baked with a friend, then there are very few games that match the soul-wrenching agony that is Mortal Kombat! You'll never get tired of playing this game, and even when you can barely feel your fingers, you'll want to keep smashing those keys and trying to get a meaningful combo going before your friend smashes your face in. 

Soul Calibur V

Another amazing fighting game, with one of the craziest and most bizarre story lines I've ever seen! You know, the kind of game that only makes sense when you're as high as a kite (or balloon, however you may roll).

The game features some herculean gameplay mechanics, epic weapons, and great Assassin's Creed references that you know you'll love. And the dodge system in the game, makes for hours of amazing battle fun with a friend (unfortunately, the friend is not provided with the game).

Never ending nightmare

If you're looking for a more morbid kind of high, then Neverending Nightmare is the game to play. This game is surprisingly scary even without the weed --so add some Maryjane to the mix, and you'll be lucky not to have a heart attack (seriously though, don't play this game if you have pre-existing heart conditions). With a peculiarly enthralling storyline, you'll definitely get a real kick out of this game.

So, with our list being done and dusted, its time to roll that joint and get some serious gaming going. Before you get too high to type though, let us know what you think of these games, and if you'd recommend any other games to play while stoned. Happy 4/20 everyone!

    Some of my favorites are:

    - Spelunky
    - Civ 5
    - Stardew Valley
    - Super Mario Maker
    - The Sims 3
    - LISA: The Painful RPG
    - Tropico 3

    Chill games are best, but 3D platformers tend to be pretty great too.

    How about games with 'Bullet Time' effects like Max Payne, The Matrix, FEAR, Stanglehold, Red Dead, Mirror's Edge or FallOut4 during critical hits?

    Or places that mess with your head? Silent Hill, Alice, or Portal, etc.

    Portal would actually be an awesome addition! Silent Hill might freak me out a bit too much though, but definitely some great ideas! Let me know if you try any of them when you're high :p
  • Seth Zulinski
    Neverending Nightmare would be an experience, and Slither's pretty chill, but the fighters seem like, way intense for a burner's holiday.

    GTA anything...man. That's like "coke binge" the video game.

    It depends what you're smoking too, but the fighter's are definitely not for everyone :)

    GTA though, like you said, is just made for playing high!
