Good challenging games that require some brains?

#1BogePosted 9/23/2013 9:06:40 PM(edited)
I need a game that will challenge me mentally. I'm not in the mood for any city building or territory conquering like Civilization or Total War. I'm definitely not a fan of RTS games, so none of those. Of course First Person shooters use very little, if any brains, so none of those either. And, also no waypoint hoppers, like MMORPGs or similar.

Got any recommendations?

La-Mulana. Don't use walkthroughs.
