Stoner games

Hey,

Now I'm quite sure some of you guys enjoy a casual puff or two from the doobie every once in a while so I'd like to ask which games (Amiga or other) do you enjoy playing while under the influence.

Recommendations welcome!

Oh and I wasn't stoned when I wrote this. Honest!

Whatever you had today, I want it too
Strange thread this is, but I guess some suggestions could also 'work' after a good boozing

Strange why? I know a lot of people who play video games stoned (and drunk).

Unfortunately everyone tends to be towards the later console games so I was thinking that there must be some appealing retro games as well.

I'm not looking for the "mind-expanding" sort of side of it, like "wow! look at those colours" type of thing, but more into games that people enjoy in that particular state of mind. Some people slow down and loose their reaction time when they smoke, whereas others find it easier to concentrate and thus improve their results in demanding games. I've seen both happen.

yeah, slow platformers in general
booze is a no no (slower reaction, quick loss of interest)

aaaah: diggers is a must

Have to think more about this one... but some that are always a success:

http://hol.abime.net/3571 Jump n Roll - A very simple game, but one that you have to try again and again...

All the pinball simulations from Digital Illusion, Dreams, Fantasies, Illusion and Slamtilt... Great fun..

Well, not retro but Lord of the Rings Online or Eve Online. Maybe one of the Call of Duty games (if not too taxing - I think it helps with the immersion)

If boozing, then any driving game really - Race Driver Grid, GTR2/Evolution, Burnout Paradise, Test Drive Unlimted, etc - G25 wheel or better required for this of course. Drinking and driving not cool in real life but a bloody laugh in games

Agreed, Jeff Minter FTW

Try playing Llamatron: 2112 or Revenge Of The Mutant Camels in a dark room, it's a spin out

I'll second that, best stoner game ever! My mate and I would play this for hours on end every night back in the day when we used to toke out in the old garage. Being high somehow helped us play better

One game from the Playstation 2 which I found to be awesome on weed is Flipnic: Ultimate Pinball. ( http://au.media.ps2.ign.com/media/65...00/imgs_1.html ) Unlike most Amiga pinball games, this isn't a simulation of the real thing, it goes way beyond by introducing waterfalls and UFOs and flamingoes and stuff into the mix. It kind of reminds me of Pinball Prelude on the Amiga, which is a pretty good stoner game too.

Flipnic is great - good shout! Although I can vouch for its quality without using drugs

I've never taken any drugs in my life (other than paracetamol and the like but I've got a feeling you're all not talking about these), but I do fondly recall a brief drunken Jump 'n' Roll session last year. I'd just got in after a Saturday night down the pub and I was just in time to see my brother get some insane score to win the Super League round this game cropped up in. Suitably amazed, and undoubtedly hindered by too much vodka, I thought with about half-an-hour of the round remaining I'd give it a go, foolishly confident of victory, but sadly my drunk state prevented me getting beyond about level three or so. I guess you had to be there

man I thought the whole point of video games was to have a good puff and then get intensely into gaming.

My first experience of a megadrive was with two stoner friends (they were heavy duty stoners these two) who spent their whole university careers smoking lots and playing populous and herzog zwei. Everytime I play populous these days the sound the ankh makes when it moves reminds me of those two guys.

Wonder what happened to them. Bob was committed to a mental health clinic in the run up to his finals, lost touch with Mike. Trust me kids, everything is great in moderation

Still like a game of Herzog Zwei - brilliant game, thoroughly deserving of a modern take on it but I'm not sure how it would be better (better AI would be a start..)
