The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs

Came here to recommend this. It's one of the few (only?) games that gave me the sense that I wasn't smart enough to finish.

I 2nd Antichamber and Spacechem.

If you get in the mood for a city building and territory conquering series then check out:

La-Mulana. Don't use walkthroughs.

I agree with this.
Another idea I had was the spy/sniper being able to climb into the soldier's rocket launcher and be launched across the map, dealing more damage, but no splash.

Myst and La-Mulana are about it for me, both gave me such a headache (very prone to them) that as much as I loved them, I had to stop playing them.

Shame, as it was always the one plus side to having an I.Q above 140 (Seriously, other than being awesome at puzzles, this hasn't served me well at all XD).

I feel that the games that take the most quick thinking are competitive online games that involve a lot of strategy. I will probably get laughed at for suggesting something like Starcraft 2 , but the thing is, the better the competition, the more challenging it gets.

Of course there are a lot of puzzle games as well, but imo there are more fun games you can play. For me personally, the most interesting and diverse way of being challenged is when playing against an actual person. Chess would be the most obvious example, and probably the first "competitive" game I ever played.

Even now, a game like DOTA2 even though the community is thought of as being full of idiots, is more interesting for me in terms of quick thinking and being challenging, than something like Myst of Age of Empires. Note that there are different brackets of competition, and people who stay in "normal bracket" probably have no valuable input as to whether the game requires you to think or not.
