Recommend me some good puzzle games

Me and a few friends have started a new kind of get together, where we sit around and play puzzle games. So far we've played through Portal 2, The Talos Principle, The Room 3, Superliminal, Portal, and a couple others. We're looking for some more good puzzle games to add to the list. Have any good recommendations for us?

Going by a friend's recommendation, Human fall flat.

Also, Antichamber. This one was a bit too much for me, would like to finish it sometime.

Are you only talking about games similar to those? Do falling block games count?

If you are fine with using emulators, check out Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo for MAME. You will probably want two controllers (though, it uses literally one button to flip pieces around so you may be able to huddle around a keyboard if willing and have someone use wasd and someone use arrow keys or numpad)

Some others are

Wind and Water Puzzle Battles (Dreamcast, or shareware PC version)

Tetris- NES

Columns for Sega Genesis

Myst, Riven for PC/Dosbox

Puzzle Bobble aka Bust-a-Move for Neo Geo (use the NFBA emulator)

Many many more if you are not averse to retro games or console games and just care about fun factor. Because those definitely have it in spades.

Oh I should've mentioned that we prefer single player. Stuff like portal was ok because it had split screen, but I haven't really run a cable to my living room yet. So I need to stick to stuff that doesn't really require connectivity. We generally get tired of being the one playing after 20 minutes and just hand the controller to the other guy and he takes over. Not really looking to play online with others anyway.

Well I think we're looking for stuff a bit newer than that. We all kind of grew up playing those games, we're looking for stuff that we haven't seen yet. So it will likely be games that are 10 years old and newer.

If you don't mind giving another version of Tetris a shot, I'd say Tetris Effect. It's quite mesmerizing.

I'd like have to check some puzzle games. I'd like to try some of Myst games again.

I was really really disappointed when I realized 99% of Skyrim puzzles were just not puzzles, just match pictures. I was hoping for a lot of Indianna Jones stuff. Or even like Zelda puzzles
