Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Braid
Story was about window shopping in (game-)hero mall? A comment on gaming itself? Day dreaming? Don't know if it was told in the best possible way. Felt too much of gibberish before the final chapter with no real now-i-got-it twist or a constant Lynch-movie-abstruseness.
Puzzles were kind of cleverly designed but it often felt like i just happen to solve something without knowing how the puzzle actually works. Not even intuitively, but by accident.
Music was fine but was sort of destroyed by the rewind game mechanism.
Graphics in water color painting style did not match imho to story, gameplay or music.
Perfect disharmony? Intended? I'm confused!
It tried to be something special but i don't enjoyed it as much as the story focused Limbo or the puzzle focused PB Winterbottom.
