The most logical choice after playing High on Life is Squanch’s other major release; Trover saves the universe. It fits a similar art style that captures the mood of Roiland’s popular sci-fi cartoon with the same sense of humor. If you can handle the voice and Morty-style dialogue, you should have a good time.

As the title suggests, Trover must save the universe while saving his puppies. By making decisions, solving puzzles and defeating enemies you are on your way to your goal. The mix of genres is inviting as you get a variety of flavors from the gameplay.

7/8 Sunset overdrive

Mutants explode into orange slime

Open-world games have a number of different formulas they can take on, and Insomniac’s Sunset Overdrive leans heavily into the collectathon corner of the genre, which yields rewards for collecting socks or destroying Fizzco security cameras. It’s action-packed and has a vulgar sense of humor that differs from Insomniac’s usual style as seen in Ratchet & Clank and Spider-Man.

The studio’s identity with crazy gadgets and weapons is in full swing. Kill sticky orange mutants with weapons like The Flaming Compensator, TNTeddy, and The Roman Candle. His balance of movement from hopping on bouncing objects or sliding down rails with his combat merge into one of the most bombasticly satisfying action games out there.

6/8 The Stanley Parable

The puzzles aren’t too taxing for those who aren’t fans of the genre. It’s more of an experience of making decisions that not only change the course of the story but also add funny comments from the narrator, who is the real star here.

5/8 borderland 3

Shoot aliens with an assault rifle

If you want an FPS with comedy thrown between the bullets like High on Life, then playing Borderlands 3 or any game in the series is your best bet. Much like Roiland writes, Borderlands has a special sense of humor that people either love or hate. After a few minutes you will quickly know which side you are on.

The combat and RPG systems make for a great looter shooter. The third installment in the series will have you drowning in weapons that look and function differently mechanically. Tie that to each character with their different abilities; Then you have a lot of freedom to play how you want and collect a different feeling with each playthrough.

4/8 Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

Shooting at a mech and an armored nazi soldier

MachineGames’ rebooted Wolfenstein series doesn’t seem like the best to compare to High on Life. They deal with issues that have a lot to do with genocide and Nazis winning WWII so they end up taking over the world. Still, there are pieces that might attract fans of squanch games.

For one thing, The New Colossus has a certain lightness about its characters, whose big personalities shine in every scene. Put that alongside the over-the-top brutality of his combat and you have a blockbuster action experience packed with heart, drama, comedy and plenty of Nazi dismemberment.

3/8 portal 2

Games like High on Life Portal 2 closed door

If the puzzles in High on Life haven’t made you think hard enough, but you want something with personality, then Portal 2 is your answer. Valve’s FPS Puzzle Solver is a classic that challenges players and delivers a fun story featuring whimsical robots.

Portal 2 is a shining example of how you can take a simple premise of shooting a blue and orange portal along with some dice to place in specific areas to get more complicated. The balance makes it accessible to newcomers, while as a brain teaser makes it one of the best in its genre.

2/8 Destroy all humans! 2 – Re-probing

UFO flies over a city

The remastered version of Destroy All Humans! 2 brings back a classic from the PS2 era with modernized graphics and some key improvements to make it feel more like a modern game. Still, it captures the sci-fi parody spirit of alien invasion movies from the 1950s and 1960s.

The second game opens its doors to a larger world to explore with a friend. Demolish buildings, examine people, and experiment with the destructive weapons offered to you in your quest for world domination and human annihilation. It’s a silly, fun action-adventure game that will amuse fans of High on Life.

1/8 hit man 3

Agent 47 is standing in front of a club

Hitman 3 has the facade of a serious game, but outside of cutscenes, there’s a lot of goofiness in the gameplay. While High on Life makes lyrics laugh with its talking guns and parodies of real places or things, like Space Applebees, you can find plenty of things to laugh about playing as Agent 47.

Each level is packed with weapons and setups that result in elaborate kills that will make even someone as cold as Agent 47 smile. The sandbox lets your creativity run wild as you become the world’s greatest assassin.
