Are there types of puzzles in games that are your worst enemy? Types of puzzles that are always really hard for you?

For me, traffic jam puzzles are the worst, like the picture in Link's Cabana in WW. I am notoriously bad at them. Sky Keep is also really hard for me because its map is a traffic jam. Astral Chain had a traffic jam blue case series that I struggled with for over an hour. I am absolutely horrible at solving them.

How about you? What types of puzzles in games always end up stumping you?

Pushing blocks to weigh down switches.

Most of the time this isnt that bad, but when the weight is fragile or easily moved by another element or is timed then I hate them. Twilight Princess was horrible for the ice block puzzles in Snowpeak Ruins, as an example.

Wow, I thought I was the only one who was really bad at sliding puzzles (the kind in the cabana that AZ was talking about) though I would classify those differently then the traffic jam kind based purely on the fact that in those only one piece has to be in a specific place, whereas with sliding puzzles everything has to be perfect.

I love puzzles, but I think the worst for me and I would never like to do it again is the puzzle in SS at Thunderhead. I swear I rage quit too many times to count! It's the one time I ever looked up a guide for help, but the game was fresh and there was no guide yet.

Also in Beyond the Beyond and Dragon Age 2 there were picture puzzles that change when you step on them. Those I loathe so much too!

Over an hour for me. Once I get something I never forget how I did it, but that was something I would have preferred to forget.
The trick is, u ve to use first person view to check the position of bridge after every move. I did that from the beginning

I think I winged it and got lucky. I had just bought the game and played it from the 20th of November to December 20th. It was a literal month I spent playing and beating it, and spent many late nights obsessed with finding out how it would end. That puzzle plus 3 AM was a bad combo lol I'll remember what you said if I try it again someday though!

Lighting torches.

Not that it's hard or anything, it's just damn boring.

I lost a piece of my soul when I learnt that BotW's main quest has one.
