8 vibey video games for a stoned night in

When you want a chill night in with a good strain, there’s nothing like a low-key video game to kick back and have a good time. It goes without saying that choosing the right game (and strain!) is essential. You’ll want to pick a strain with relaxing, euphoric, or happy effects that will stimulate your creativity without worrying about first-person shooter reflexes. 

You can do just about anything in a video game if you choose the right one—but for a night in, the stakes should be low, the scenery should be vibrant, and where you end up should be all up to you.

Below, we’ve curated eight fantastic games with relaxed, feel-good vibes that suit a stoned gaming sesh. Settle down, pack a bowl, and leave the stress of the day-to-day behind as you play alone or with those close to you.


Stardew Valley

Available on Computer, Mobile, Playstation, Xbox

Single or Multiplayer

Stardew Valley is arguably one of the best, if not the best, farm-life sim games out there. Don’t be put off by the classic 8-bit style look, this charming game contains a surprising amount of depth and a well-rounded experience that leaves players hooked.

Move away from your fast-paced, dreary office job and immerse yourself in your grandfather’s old farm, bringing it back to life with farming, animal husbandry, mining, fishing, collecting, befriending, and romancing villagers— and even some light combat. A truly immersive and relaxing game, it’s a perfect choice for some stoned me-time.
