Selective Creation: Fit the Perfect 25 Puzzle Games List!



  • These lists normally take a little thought to build so let's add the games that are all about thought: Puzzle games!

    As always - Quick rule refresher for potential new players:

    Here's the breakdown: You've been given the power to green-light 25 games, but here's the catch: these 25 games will be the ONLY Puzzle games EVER. What should be the games that make the cut? By giving 25 select titles, you are essentially playing an inverse of Kill Your Babies.

    You can only give one title until four people have added after you OR 12 hours have passed since the last overall addition, NOT NECESSARILY YOURS, so think really hard about which game should be on the list. It could be your favorite game, or if your favorite is already present, then you can add another you hold dear. Or if you don't like puzzle games, get to trolling if it makes you happy.

    To keep some diversity, I'm instituting a franchise cap. So if two entries of a series get put on the list, a third CAN NOT be added.

    Once you have given a game, please keep a running list going for the benefit of the next person that would like to play. Because I'm pitching the game, I will refrain from adding to the list unless absolutely necessary because it would be unfair for me to skew the list in my favor.

    And so Allies, what are the definitive 25 puzzle games that be a monument to thought and logic?

    Have fun!

    Because it's a good game. And ATLUS



  • Meteos, because I was fucking OBSESSED with that shit back on the DS.



  • Catherine
    Meteos
    Cleopatra Fortune

    Because despite the fact that nobody else has heard of it, I think it's pretty rad.



  • Catherine
    Meteos
    Cleopatra Fortune
    The Talos Principle

    I love anything that makes me question my reality and this certainly scratches that itch.

    I was initially going to say Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker but we all know that's not a puzzle game.

  • @Haru17 Because a game has puzzles, does not make it a puzzle game. If that were the case, many different franchises, and genres, would be represented. God of War, The Last Guardian, the Batman: Arkham series, and Uncharted to name a few.

    So I must invalidate your kill. Please feel free to add another game that is primarily puzzles, if you wish.



  • Catherine
    Meteos
    Cleopatra Fortune
    The Talos Principle
    Kickle Cubicle
    The Witness
    Portal 2
    Thomas was Alone
    Magical Drop 3
    Adventures of Lolo
    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
    Tetris
    Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo

    It's a puzzle, it's a fighter, it's a two, and it's FAST AS HELL.



  • @TokyoSlim I was literally about to add this one until I scrolled down. Great minds, or something like that.

    Portal 2
    Thomas was Alone
    Magical Drop 3
    Adventures of Lolo
    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
    Tetris
    Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
    Pokemon Puzzle League

    I'm feeling giddy!

    I'm awful at these sorts of games, but it's fun going through the story and tackling various gyms with your Pokemon dishing out attacks. Similar vibe to Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo.



  • @Axel I'm all about your second choice. :D



  • Catherine

    Adventures of Lolo
    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
    Tetris
    Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
    Pokemon Puzzle League
    Picross 3D

    Yes, the first, not the second. I enjoyed it a lot more and have cleared it twice since owning a DS.



  • @Brannox Okay, well that was the only puzzle series I cared about. Arbitrary genre distinctions, l8r!
