Updated October 6, 2020 2.3k votes 484 voters 34.9k views31 items

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 and more.

If you're looking for a good PC co-op puzzle game on Steam, check out Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, a fun multiplayer game where you and a partner work together to defuse a bomb.  No partner? No problem., Single-player Steam puzzle games like Portal or Hello Neighbor are a blast.  We've also included some story-driven artistic puzzle games like Gorogoa and Braid that throw popular puzzle game mechanics out the window.

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