Why is it that finding a good puzzle game on the Steam store is almost as difficult as the puzzle games themselves? Luckily, we've compiled this list of the best PC puzzle games on Steam, ranging from classic indie puzzle games to story-driven platform puzzle games.

If you're looking for a good PC co-op puzzle game on Steam, check out Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, the game where you and a partner work together to difuse a bomb.  If you have poor communication skills, try out a single player puzzle game, like Portal or Hello Neighbor.  We've also included some story-driven artistic puzzle games like Gorogoa and Braid, that throw popular puzzle game mechanics out the window.

Vote on the puzzle video games for PC below so other gamers can get some solid recommendations for what to play. If there are any puzzle games on Steam that we forgot, go ahead and add them to the list.
