    World of Goo was a really no-brainer.

    Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes DS ate up more gaming time than I would have thought possible.

    Critter Crunch is a nice little time-killer :)

    Does Portal not count or something? If it counts, then it should definitely be on here. For obvious reasons.

    So these are the series in general right? Great list, but expected Blast Corpse too Im guessing Pushmo counts with Crashmo, its sequel is just bananas

    So basically what you're trying to say is you like tetris and tetris inspired terises and all other shapes and forms of tetris but nothing can beat the the original tetronimoes in tetris even the multicoloured non-tetronimoes of not-tetris. Also, Professor Layton is amazing however I disagree that miracle mask deserves to be the representative for the professor Layton series, I'd give the unwound/lost future the spot of best professor Layton game. Also how is Braid not on this list, it's more of a puzzle game than a platformer and add ilomilo to the list this second.Quell memento an underrated puzzle game on the vita and mobile platforms is another possible consideration for this list.

    I have no issue with the numbering, just an omission: BLAST CORPS. FOOLS! Seriously though, that game was awesome. I remember the family gathering around to try and master all the levels. To this day there is one stage we never managed to beat; It was a blast trying though.

    Pokemon Puzzle Challenge (or any other variant).

    Tetris DS is indeed the definitive ultimate version of Tetris, but I would also add Picross to this list. It's like statue sculptor the puzzle game, but it's all a number puzzle similar to sudoku.
  • Jonamon23 - October 10, 2013 5:35 p.m.

    I agree with Picross. The video game version makes the puzzle type more accessible than messing with the paper version. Picross 3D was interesting and a great improvement on the original idea.

    Mean Bean Machine is terrible! Also Pokemon Puzzle League should be on the list.

    Minesweeper?
  • anchgu7 - October 10, 2013 3:24 p.m.

    As much as I love minesweeper (over 15000 games played on my current machine), it isn't really a puzzle game. It's just number deduction and logic.
  • Jonamon23 - October 10, 2013 5:32 p.m.

    If puzzles do not involve number deduction and logic, then what is a puzzle to you? Consider the following: If minesweeper numbers had corresponding colors associated with the number of mines, then we could remove the number argument. This would make it a game of deduction and logic, using your terms. My argument is: if we must plan ahead and reason through the next move or deduction, this style is a puzzle game to me. Minesweeper is as much a puzzle game as Sudoku or every puzzle in Professor Layton. I ask to have it as a consideration for this list for many people have tried the game or play it regularly, like you.
  • anchgu7 - October 10, 2013 6:20 p.m.

    You make a good point. Even though I didn't say it earlier, because I've played minesweeper so much, it's more of a game of memory to me, because certain patterns can be memorized in the game, and then you don't even have to think about where mines are because you already know. I just said number deduction and logic as a broad sense, because people who don't know the patterns would have to use deduction based on the numbers.

    Henry I love ya but how could you completely ignore Bejeweled and Peggle? Two of the best puzzle games of all time and certainly the best of the last decade.
  • GR_LucasSullivan - October 10, 2013 2 p.m.

    What am I, chopped liver!? But to address those suggestions: We saw Bejeweled as aging, while Puzzle Quest 2 improved on that formula. Peggle isn't really a puzzle game in the traditional sense, given the requirement for aiming and a little bit of luck.
  • garnsr - October 10, 2013 2:27 p.m.

    I agree, Lucas is chopped liver. And I wouldn't consider Peggle to really be a puzzle game, either. I'm unable to really play Puzzle Fighter due to color blindness, the yellow, green and orange gems are too hard to tell apart.
  • GR_LucasSullivan - October 10, 2013 3:31 p.m.

    Yeah, that's the biggest knock against it for sure. Tom Magrino is in the same boat with you.
