    Games that make you think

    Game Plot / message Time for one playthrough
    Emily is Away Not all stories have a happy ending, and sometimes even if you have the best intentions, your actions can lead to the worst results. 30 minutes
    Execution A very short game that still manages to teach actions have consequences, and sometimes the most obvious choice isn't the best. 2 minutes
    Super Columbine Massacre RPG In between parodying the Columbine school shooting, it offers very powerful insight as to what was in Eric's and Dylan's heads, and what led them to do what they did. 4 hours
    Doki Doki Literature Club Don't want to give any spoilers, so let's say there are at least two powerful messages in it. 4 hours
    Actual Sunlight Completely nails the feelings of depression and being stuck in an endless, dead-end loop. 1 hour
    Little Red Lie Follows two characters on two opposite sides of an economic crisis. Besides what may be expected from the premise, they both have their own stories to tell. Has a downer but realistic ending. 8 hours

    Not really much thinking involve here but it's more like self interpretation of the occasions/events happening around. It's Divinity OS.

    I'd like to add Katawa Shoujo and Thing-in-Itself to my list. I've heard Yume Nikki is very good but haven't played it yet.

    I see a lot of executive travellers playing that game on the flight back home...

    Solitaire is just fun to pass time, it doesn't make you think like Actual Sunlight or Little Red Lie.

    Or make you cry like Doki Doki

    If you want a challenge try OpenTTD. Very few are able to play it like it is meant to be played.

    No offense, but I think the only life lesson simulation games can teach you is how those things don't work Or at least, I didn't become a great military leader after playing Warzone 2100... where jets can be repaired in mid-flight and building an array of 100 mortars (which never run out of ammo) is a perfectly reasonable decision.

    But that's okay, they're games and they wouldn't be fun if they were realistic.
