Greatest Puzzle Games of All Time

This is for pure puzzle games, so the Legend of Zelda series doesn't count.

The Top Ten

1 Tetris

Out of all the Tetris games, my favourite is Tetris DS. But still, it's not my favourite puzzle game. - FernandoLemon

What a classic, nothing beats Tetris - ethany

No contest Tertis is the best puzzle game of all time. - egnomac

2 Portal 2

I LOVE THIS GAME BY MY HEART! THIS IS ONE OF THOSE RARE GAMES THAT ARE THE MOST DEFINITELY DEEPLY ATTACHED TO MY HEART AND EVERYONE ELSE, THIS GAME MADE ME LAUGH, EMOTIONAL and cry, SUSPICIOUS, MY MIND SHARPER AND SHARPER, EVERY FEELING A PERSON CAN HAVE AND IT IS THE BEST PUZZLE GAME EVER MADE, I CAN SAY THAT WITHOUT ANY DOUBT, PORTAL IS EVERYTHING, ACTION, ADVENTURE, PUZZLE, SHOOTING (because you do shoot portals) seriously a masterpiece, the best game valve has ever made, this game is a multiple game full of so many damn features, I just love this game, you can play co-op multiplayer, such a damn long singleplayer mode - play through awesome main story chapters, make your own maps, edit any maps, download more and more extra and bonus different maps, a larger community so awesome and it deserves THE FIRST PLACE.

If you haven't played Portal 2, you need to go out and play it... right now. Seriously, the story is just too awesome and the experience is way too sweet to miss.

Portal is the best game ever!

It’s more than a puzzle. This game has the most creativity then any other game I played. and there is still 500 others things I have to say

The Contenders

11 Tetris Attack

The name of this game is a huge misnomer - in fact it's the first game in the Puzzle League series, which is unrelated to Tetris to the point where Henk Rogers of The Tetris Company regretted giving Nintendo permission to use the name altogether. Still, it's great fun. - Entranced98
