Load up your texture mods and let the good times roll with this beautiful, open world ARPG. Maybe your bong rips have put you in the mood for slaying some dragons; maybe you just want to harvest lavender for a few hours and enjoy the scenery.

Stoned driving: not cool, unless it's Mario Kart. Drift and draft your way around colorful obstacles courses with your favorite Nintendo characters to an energetic race soundtrack; what's not to enjoy? Shh, we won't talk about Rainbow Road.

As funny as it is frustrating, Portal 2 makes good use of a hybrid high. Let the indica calm your turret- and laser-induced stress while the sativa helps you keep up with the witty dialogue and clever puzzles. Best of all, if you plan ahead for the munchies, the cake *won't* be a lie.

Make like Towelie and grab your best giggly bud - as in the kind of weed that makes you giggle, but you could also grab your best giggly friend (or guy or pal). South Park: The Stick of Truth has all the bones of a classic RPG, topped with the hilarious trimmings of that infamous South Park humor. While you're good and high, take the time to read the item descriptions. Easter eggs, mmkay?
