VGChartz’s Lee Mehr: “There’s nothing like a good brainteaser. When you condense most modern games down – especially action titles – you’re typically reaching a zen-like state through split-second decisions and forward momentum. Puzzle games typically have the opposite approach: seeing a problem, sitting back to think it through, and solving it. When done right? They’re capable of capturing the same sense of reward as a photo finish in a race or a visceral killing blow in a shooter. Even though only one winner can be selected, all of these nominees are worth it for any fan of the genre.”
