Does insult fighting and trying to figure out the proper come-backs to the sword master of Melee island count as a riddle?

i have no idea what you just mentioned >_>. however,here are some examples of the kind of riddles that i want(non visual-heavy riddles)

1:(From Nier);

You have 3 ppl,each of them looks the same,two of them are clones and one isnt. the clones will always lie and the original will always say the truth. each of them said one phrase.you have to know which of them is the original and why using these phrases only.

The first said:I am the one who says the truth and the second is a liar.

The second said:I am the one who says the truth and the third is a liar.

The third said:I am the one who says the truth and the first and second are liars.

Which of them said the truth?

2:(from Silent Hill 3):
There's a keypad with a 4 digit lock.
123
456
789

Near the pad is this note.

"Pure eyes, blue like a glassy bead---
You are always looking at me
and I am always looking at you.

Ah, you're too meek ---
beautiful, unspoiled:
thus I'm so sad, I suffer---
and so happy, it hurts.

I want to hurt you
and destroy myself
What you would think
if you knew how I felt.

Would you simply smile,
not saying a word?
Even curses from your mouth
would be as beautiful as pearls.

I place my left hand on your
face as though we were to kiss.
Then I suddenly shove my thumb
deep into your eyesocket.
Abruptly, decisively,
like drilling a hole.

And what would it feel like?
Like jelly?
Trembling with ecstasy, I obscenely
mix it around and around: I must
taste the warmth of your blood.

How would you scream?
Would you shriek "It hurts!
It hurts!" as cinnabar-red tears
stream from your crushed eye?

You can't know the maddening
hunger I've felt in the midst of
our kisses, so many of them
I've lost count.

As though drinking in your cries,
I bring my hopes to fruition:
biting your tongue, shredding it,
biting at your lips as if tasting
your lipstick.

Oh, what euphoric heights I would
reach, having my desires fulfilled
like a greedy, gluttonous cur.

I longed, too, for your cherry-tinted
cheeks, tasty enough to bewitch my
tongue.
I would surely be healed,
and would cry like a child.

And how is your tender ear?
It brushes against my cheek;
I want it to creep up to my lips so
I can sink my teeth into its flesh.

Your left ear, always hearing words
whispered sweet as pie ---
I want it to hear my true feelings.
I never lied, no...
but I did have my secrets.

Ah, but what must you think of me?
Do you hate me? Are you afraid?
As though inviting you to the agony
at the play's end; if you wish, you
could destroy me --- I wouldn't care.

As you wish, you may destroy me
--- I wouldn't care."

" the man looked at the woman and asked for her love."

"she said no. "

" why did the man ask? "


" because **** you that's why. "

You've probably thought of it already, but there's lots of riddles in Batman Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. I can't think of any favorite ones off the top of my head but you might be able to pull one or two good ones out of there.

There's also a couple "Whodunnit" kind of missions in Sanctuary in Borderlands 2. Might not classify as one of the top 10 riddles, but it came to mind.

Sorry I don't have more specific info for ya. Good luck! Looking forward to seeing your final list!

For me, nothing stands out more than the original Resident Evil riddles/puzzles from back in the day, especially the one with the paintings on the wall.

The REmake riddles were pretty good as well. Especially the clock one . The painting just creeps me out.

the riddles that don't exist because riddles in games are nonsense.

Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone.
The armory of god is guarding me but all you can see is holographic artistry.
