The puzzler genre is always overlooked and seen as geeky or boring. Puzzle games have proven to be some of the most memorable such as Portal and Professor Layton. Puzzle games can bring out the more intellectual side of us and can almost be therapeutic and relaxing.
I could get a lot of backlash for this but Monument Valley was one of the most enchanting puzzle games I have ever played. Yes it was extremely short, but it’s a short and sweet memory that I will never forget. It feels like Journey meets Echochrome in this gorgeous game that overloads the senses and puts a smile on your face. There are very few games out there like that (in fact the last one was Journey).
