Portal. It's a boring puzzle game. The puzzles have to be made easy enough for people of average IQ to solve so it's not a real puzzle. If it didn't come free with the Orange Box I would never have played it. I still haven't played Portal 2. I yawn just thinking about playing it.

should the puzzle game have been made so that only people of above average IQ could solve it?

No, whatever they did they did right. They got sales and critical acclaim.

It's just my personal taste. For me it's not really a puzzle unless it is very difficult to solve. Rubik's Cube for example was very popular even though it was nearly impossible for an average person to solve. Challenge is fun. If you give up then you can look it up online and be like, "Oh, wow, that's how you solve it!"
