Physics games use basic, familiar rules to create memorable gameplay, but what are the best physics games ever made? This list of physics games is ranked by sharp gamers, so it provides an answer to that age-old question. The physics engine in any game controls so much of how it plays that it can easily make or break a game. Sometimes, the physics are the game. Some are puzzles, some are mods to other games to let players mess around with the physics engine, and some just use interesting physics engines to enhance enjoyment.

It'd be difficult to talk about games about physics if we don't mention the Portal series. With the Portal Gun and the use of physics to solve puzzles, it's an incredibly complex game with very simple mechanics. There's also World of Goo, which doesn't use realistic physics, but has an engine that enhances a fun premise.  You really can't go wrong with these classic games about physics. 

So take a look of our list of the best physics games and vote up your favorites! Don't forget to check out our other video games lists to get ideas on what to play next!
