10 Games to Play When You’re High as a Kite

Today is 4/20, which has become synonymous with getting high as a kite and because of that fact I wanted to run down the top 10 video games to play when you are high as a kite. If you’re reading this right now, chances are you’re pretty high and are having difficulty getting through this first sentence. That’s okay, do your thing, forget about those taxes you still haven’t filed, and play one of the videogames listed below. Also, don’t let the backwards-counting of this list take you for a mentally unstable ride. You’re going to be okay. I’ll finish this introductory paragraph later. I’m going to smoke a bowl first (because I live in Amsterdam and have the legal right to do so). (Beautiful Katamari, Burnout Paradise, Geometry Wars 2, iPad, iPhone, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Retro, Super Mario Galaxy, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Games to Play When You’re High as a Kite
1. Madden Football/Tecmo Bowl
2. Tony Hawk Pro Skater
3. GTA (doesn't matter which one)
4. SSX (the adrenalin rush you get from this game while high is awesome)
5. Street Fighter 2 Super Duper I'm so High Edition
6. NBA2k
7. Max Payne (the bullet time seems to last an eternity)
8. Battlefield 3 (for about 15 minutes before it completely sobers you up)
9. APB Reloaded (the ONLY way to play it is high)
10. Need For Speed / Gran Turismo

I've probably smoked a Rain Forrest while playing Madden and Tecmo Bowl through the years.

BF3 is like SO REAL while inebriated but the game quickly sobers you up! Why I don't know!

P.S. getting High is bad for your brain and it makes you lazy. Just Say No!

Weed does expand your imagination (like the first few times you do it, then your chasing the dragon) but it also kills your brain cells, makes you lazy, gives you horrible mood swings, and is a gateway drug to much much worser things.

i smoked weed for over 10 years without a day off. i stopped when i had my kids and never looked back. im richer,healthier and lot more switched on.

i find bragging about smoking weed to be very childish and think how much of a tosser i was doing it.

i will admit one thing though...i dont enjoy my music as much as used to. i used to listen to bone thugs all day long. now i listen to otis reading and zapp and rogers and i im only 26 lol.
Edward75  +   912d ago
I know that many people smoke weed, and many like myself smoked when we were younger and have stopped for the most part, but even though I'll get many disagrees, this article shouldn't have been approved to put up. As of right now it is still illegal and ties gaming to smoking pot. Yes it happens, but in a small way this promotes it. We all know that young kids and teens frequent this site not cool n4g. Not cool.

@Spam

I completely agree with what you say. I smoke occasionally, I never buy just if one of my stoner friends offer it. I rather smoke than take in something that will damage my liver. This will be the last year I smoke as I make my way into med school. Can't have that shit in your system when in the medical field. Its fun to enjoy, I do not regret it has I have had some fun times but after mostly this summer I won't look back.

As long as people can be responsible with it just like drinking. I do not see a big deal as a lot of people make it up to be. Everyone just needs to know when its time to quit and really grow up.

CDzNutts lol i didn't burn out i just didn't want my kids growing up around it. im white and my girlfriend is black jamaican so we smoked heavy till we made a pact not to smoke no more. now we get on better and get a bigger buzz through our kids.

i just added up 10 X 365 day = 3650 x £20 a day habbit = £73,000 lol.

i got money, i got my kids, i got a nice house and a sweet 3D gaming rig set-up. weed aint got nothing on the good life.

Not getting high from time to time is like not exceeding speed limit occasionally.
Not getting drunk and do stupid and funny things.
Not trying out different sexual positions that might bring more pleasure to both.
Not playing casual games being hardcore gamer.
Not drinking coffee in the morning to have strength through the day.
Not eating that highly calloric dish that's so incredibly tasty.

I could even drag it under: not even be alive or sane. Because how we perceive world is strongly influenced by chemicals and enzymes our body produce and use. Even DMT which is classified as highly dangerous drug naturally occurs in our organisms and is getting us high little by little as we grew older.

Don't be stupid Hollywood evil. Evil needs educated and intelligent agents.

Spydiggity  +   912d ago
so you first say that people shouldn't be getting high in the first place, then you question someone's problem with your opinion? you obviously have a problem with any who's opinion is that it's okay to smoke.

and who are you to tell anyone else what they should and shouldn't do. people like you are the types of people who stand on the corner with signs trying to spread your closed mindedness, then you go home to stick your thumb up your dogs bum.

btw, "Ikaruga: This game is incredibly difficult (Ninja Gaiden 3 is another choice if you can't find ikrauga) when you’re sober, so there is no way you’re going to be able to do it while under the influence of marijuana."

spoken like a person that doesn't actually smoke. so explain those of us who seem to perform slightly better while baked...i do agree though, it's a good stoner game.

so many games that are super obvious and aren't actually very good stoner games on this list though. i would replace most of the list with Resident Evil, Amnesia, Alan Wake, Portal 2 Co-Op with a stoned friend, World of Warcraft, Super Stardust HD, Ratchet and Clank, Saints Row 2, Shadow of the Colossus.

truly, nearly all games are better while baked...except LA Noire. that game was a total buzz kill.

Effects on the Brain

The active ingredient in marijuana, THC, acts on cannabinoid receptors on nerve cells and influences the activity of those cells. Some brain areas have many cannabinoid receptors, but other areas of the brain have few or none at all. Many cannabinoid receptors are found in the parts of the brain that influence pleasure, memory, thought, concentration, sensory and time perception, and coordinated movement.
Users can experience the following symptoms:

-Hallucinations
-Delusions
-Impaired memory
-Disorientation

Effects on the Heart

Within a few minutes after smoking marijuana, the heart begins beating more rapidly and the blood pressure drops. Marijuana can cause the heart beat to increase by 20 to 50 beats per minute, and can increase even more if other drugs are used at the same time.
Because of the lower blood pressure and higher heart rate, researchers found that users' risk for a heart attack is four times higher within the first hour after smoking marijuana, compared to their general risk of heart attack when not smoking.

Effects on the Lungs

Smoking marijuana, even infrequently, can cause burning and stinging of the mouth and throat, and cause heavy coughing. Scientists have found that regular marijuana smokers can experience the same respiratory problems as tobacco smokers do, including:

-Daily cough and phlegm production
-More frequent acute chest illnesses
-Increased risk of lung infections
-Obstructed airways

Marijuana contains more carcinogenic hydrocarbons than tobacco smoke and because marijuana smokers typically inhale deeper and hold the smoke in their lungs longer than tobacco smokers, their lungs are exposed to those carcinogenic properties longer, when smoking.

What About Cancer?

Because marijuana smoke contains three times the amount of tar found in tobacco smoke and 50 percent more carcinogens, it would seem logical to deduce that there is an increased risk of lung cancer for marijuana smokers. However, researchers have not been able to definitively prove such a link because their studies have not been able to adjust for tobacco smoking and other factors that might also increase the risk.

Other Health Effects

Research indicates that THC impairs the body's immune system from fighting disease, which can cause a wide variety of health problems. One study found that marijuana actually inhibited the disease-preventing actions of key immune cells. Another study found that THC increased the risk of developing bacterial infections and tumors.
Effects of Exposure During Pregnancy

Several studies have found that children born to mothers who used marijuana during pregnancy exhibit some problems with neurological development. According to those studies, prenatal marijuana exposure can cause:

-Altered responses to visual stimuli
-Increased tremulousness
-Problems with sustained attention and memory
-Poor problem-solving skills
----------------------------- -----------------
There you go. Health effects related to weed. Go on, use YOUR scientific prowess to disprove this. Short-term effects were listed, but there's a character limit.

It's not that I'm typically a close-minded person. I'm just intolerant of stupidity. I could care less if you're gay when I'm straight or whatever, a Republican when I'm Independent, but do something so stupid? Not so much.

You want to feel really good? Set yourself a small goal you want to accomplish (not related to smoking weed), then accomplish it. At least then you've done something productive instead of decrease productivity altogether.

@Evil

Using SMOKING marijuana as an argument against using marijuana at all makes you look like an uninformed asshole.

Smoking ANYTHING is bad for you, and is not the safe way to get high. You might as well say that video games are bad because you play them by pounding your head into the controller. Non sequitor.

Ingest or vaporize it, and most of your negative effects disappear entirely. As far as immune system goes, marijuana helps people with serious immune-system-based diseases and can help people in the late stages of HIV infection survive longer AND with less pain.

The rest of your "effects" are either unfounded or are well worth it, like any other fun activity in life. You could try having fun for once, you know. It won't kill you (in moderation).
-Alpha  +   912d ago
@Evil

What chad said. Straight up smoke is obviously bad for you, bongs and vaporizers are the safer solution-- as for the rest of your information, the temporary short-term effects are not life threatening, and I dont smoke heavily enough for the long term effects.

And I still stand by what I said: there are many things that can be labeled detrimental, gaming seems pretty pointless to me. Have moderation and be sensible, it's not difficult

Is this just for weed or for getting high on everything? Actually, i am a recovering addict, 4+ years. Video games have helped me stay clean. So, u don't need drugs for any game to be great as it's a great replacement for drugs. That being said, i think weed is an unfair advantage in online competition as I'm always getting owned by high 15 -18 year olds.

Corepred4  +   912d ago
Can't be addicted to weed, i don't know if that's what you're saying though. But if you are you have to be the weakest individual on the planet or have other problems that are in no way the drugs fault.
joab777  +   911d ago
I am not gonna argue how weed stacks up to other drugs as fact will tell you that it isn't as harmful as other drugs, including alcohol. But, it is addictive and highly addictive. There are two types of addiction mental and physical. Heroin and alcohol are mentally addictive but are known for their physical addiction. You get sick when you do not have it, physically sick. Alcohol takes much longer to develop a serious physical addiction but withdrawal can be fatal. Cocaine isn't so much physical as mental. It is one of the most mentally addictive drugs on the planet. That being said, weed is also mentally addictive. Unfortunately, we link mental addiction to will power. It isn't. Chemicals change the neuro pathways in the brain, changing patterns of thought etc. When once you may have belived drugs were bad, now you may not. When chemicals are involved, will power is out the door.Things happen inside your body and brain that you cannot control. Now, like i said, i a not going to say that weed is worse than it isn't. But, it is quite mentally addictive and there are serious consequences to longtime use. And it is a gateway drug. I have never met a heroin addict or a cocaine addict who didn't smoke weed first. It is always the first step. There are many who never go on to use hard drugs, but it is like rolling the dice, as decision making is highly impaired under the influence.

Also if you take the effects that you copied and pasted in here completely seriously, then you are even more alien to the use of marijuana than I originally suspected from your first two comments. Aside from the fact that it doesn't read as nearly as frightening as the TV-advertised allergy medication of your choice, there are also some seriously questionable claims in there, as well as instances that appear as a technicality, rather than actual common effects. Hallucinations is the one that stands out loudest.

The heart rate part is great too.. One would already have to be at risk of a heart attack for that exploitation to ever come into play. That person would be at equal risk from climbing too many stairs, as it would increase their heart rate temporarily.

You're just wrong man, all the cutting and pasting in the world won't change that.

Any and all negative effects caused by Marijuana intoxication are short term and gone within 30 days, after the THC has stopped bonding with the brain cells and out of the system. Smoking Marijuana everyday can cause those short term effects you listed, including lack of motivation, but only when intoxicated.

I smoke occasionally, about twice a week. I'm working hard at 2 jobs, one full time, one part time, and keeping up A's and B's as a part time student in college. I have high goals for myself that I hope to accomplish. I really don't see the problem with occasional usage.

Different strokes, really.

I personally find that being stoned helps me focus when it comes to gaming, as well as certain other things. I even earned my Super Stardust HD high (no pun intended) score while smoking. Pretty darned high one too, put me in the top 50 at the time. If you're not familiar with the game, it's one of the most frantic things I've ever played, and requires a great deal of focus and concentration to excel at.

But yeah, some people can't tie their shoelaces when stoned. All depends on the person.

Is this what N4G has come to? Promoting articles about drug use?

What is wrong with drug use? It is common throughout the entire world (alcohol) and weed is legal in plenty of countries as well. You can say 'drugs are bad' all you want, but everything in moderation. Sitting down playing games 20 hours a day is bad, just like drinking to much water, eating to much food, or to much of any task imaginable.

Where were drugs mentioned?

I find it kinda sad how many people on here have done this stuff, or that there's even a popular article about this. :/

Oh well, I just hope stuff like this doesn't get too frequent on here.

Don't worry, it's 4/21 now, so you can return to your blissful state of ignorance. But before you go...

Lots of people smoke weed, dude. Odds are that several of the people you interact with on a daily basis are users, and you might not even know it. Weed doesn't make you shoot people, it doesn't make you beat your wife, and it doesn't give you green eyes or fangs. It's just another way to chill, relax, and put yourself in a more receptive state of mind.

It has been my personal experience that alcohol (yes alcohol is a DRUG, but we don't call it that) is a far more harmful substance than marijuana. It doesn't make a lot of sense that one is legal and the other is not. As free adults, it is our right to govern what goes in to our bodies, provided we are not doing any harm to our fellow man. Who do you think is more likely to cause harm: someone who just blazed a couple grams of weed, or someone who just downed two shots and four beers because work was shitty today?

Isn't it funny? I like to think about the fact that if those really enthusiastic and educated (on their hobby) pot users that people love to make fun of were into wine instead, they would be called "connoisseurs".

It's amazing how powerfully legal notions of morality can pervade the public's point of view on something that can be easily understood and analyzed with one's own eyes and ears, if they ever tried. Alcohol is totally acceptable in the hands of "responsible adults" (who still kill people behind the wheel every day), yet those same responsible adults are dragged through the dirt of they decide to use marijuana.

Well said. The powers that be shouldn't have the right to tell us what we can do with our bodies as long as we don't harm or hurt anyone else # cantsaythesameforalcohol

Why do you people get so mad when someone doesn't like weed? It's like we're attacking you personally, which you actually did to me for no actual reason.

My dislike of weed is more out of personal experience than just general distaste for it. Iy wasn't me who did it but a close friend of mine once tried it. It triggered a violent seizure, we didn't know he had epilepsy until that point.

It was quite dramatic and a huge game changer for my friend. It's mainly because of that event that I can't stand that thing today.

Doesn't really bother me that people smoke it in peace and quiet.
