    Default What puzzle type games can't you finish?

    There must be plenty but the two that come to mind at the moment are SpaceChem and Hexcells Infinite.

    In SpaceChem I'm just plain stuck and its been so long I don't remember why. I think it was a really complicated four way combination that I couldn't do.

    In Hexcells Infinite I just can't clear enough cells without making a mistake. I know the game is supposed to be an intuitive minesweeper but I just can't get through a round without making an error.

    What other cool puzzle type games should we know about?

    Although I backed it on Kickstarter I've yet to actually finish Armikrog.

    Oh wow, this question actually made me realise, the last puzzle game I played was The Talos Principle. I haven't spent some time with a puzzler in a while.

    I've never really gotten stuck to the point that I've not completed a puzzle game, that I can remember now. Most puzzle games that I stop playing is due to lack of interest.

    The Hexcells games are awesome, the final few handmade puzzles of Infinite are very tough though but very satisfying to complete. I haven't finished the generated puzzles though, since there's 1 000 000 000 of them!

    I really need to get back into this game and play it to completion, such an awesome game.

    Dude me too!! Some of those puzzles are fiendishly difficult though, but they are doable.

    Ive always shied away from puzzle games. Im just not a very cerebral person and get brain tired pretty quick but I realise how good for the brain they are.

    I have never finished a tomb raider or portal game. I consider those heavy puzzlers and pretty much my limit of mental fortitude.
    Even the puzzles in Skyrim had me stumped a few times. (point and laugh, Im used to it )
