The Best Puzzle Adventure Games

Adventure games that emphasize puzzles. Normally these puzzles are built into stories and world progression instead of just a sequence of levels. These games might also offer a collection of puzzle mini-games within the context of the overall story. Different from point and click, as these games lack the menu bars, inventory slots, tappable environmental elements, etc. These are more interactive stories that are progressed through solving puzzles.
