I’ve heard nothing but good things about The Witness, but I’ve struggled to get into it. The puzzles are great once you know what you’re doing and there are plenty of them, but if you can’t find the “tutorial” set of puzzles, you’re going to have a bad time. Especially as it’s not clear where those puzzles are. Generally it’s alright, but not one I’d list on my “must have” list.
