D&D Hall of Fame:

Singhi's 3.0 campaign - started at 1000 xp, vanished into nothingness at 2995 xp.
Paolo's 3.0 one-shot - too much DMPCing.
Luca's 3.0 campaign - started as a CoDM-PC, made a PC shortly after. Still no level ups.
My 3.0 campaign - aborted three rooms from the end.
Marco's 3.5 7-PCs-campaign - aborted for scheduling problems. Still no level ups.
Marco's intro to RttToEE - gave DMing right to me after 2 sessions. Arbitrary leveling up between those.
My 3.5 Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil. TPK'ed at level 8/9.
Marco's 3.5 all manuals campaign - aborted for excessive PC firepower. Guess what.
Marco's 3.5 random characters campaign - aborted after less than 10 minutes of play.
Pier's 4e Keep on the Shadowfell - gave DMing rights to me before I could level.
My 3.5 Expedition to the Demonweb Pits. - Completed!
My 3.0 City of the Spider Queen. - Completed!
My 4e Keep on the Shadowfell. - Completed! Kavu's 3.5 Daemonfey campaign
My 3.5 Expedition to Undermountain - aborted when we got a 4e group again

comment How can I make puzzles a challenge for the character, rather than the player?
@BrianS the clue feeding technique is already in my answer, the OOC help didn't come to my mind while answering and NotVonKaiser already has it. I might include it in my answer too, because it's good advice, but it feels like stealing :(

comment Looking for RPGs without character-classes
@Ferox Elaborating on lisardggY's comment, here are a few question that could help you tell us what you're looking for: Do you need one of the players to be the game master or are masterless games ok? Do you want it to focus on combat, character development (this usually does not work well with "deep, pre-written backstories", since players tend to cristallyze on those), creating a story togheter? Must it be a collaborative or a free-for-all game? Should it be able to manage long campaigns or just one-shots is ok? Setting/tech limitations might also be useful.

Not necessarily every check should be Int-based, see the last part of @NotVonKaiser's answer.

Solving riddles is half part previous knowledge and half part intuition (Int and Wis could both be used)

comment Are there any RPGs that realistically prioritize speed and reach in melee?
SInce the question does not ask for a list but asks if at least a game like that exists, any answer that provides at least one example of a similar game would be a valid answer to me.

comment Isn't wielding inappropriately large weapons pretty powerful?
@EugeneRyabtsev Uhm, that's a bit too specific of a bit for me to know (I'm a 3.5e player with some knowledge of how to read the PRD) but if it's anywhere like 3.5e all magic items resize except for armors and weapons. Can anyone more familiar with PF inform us on the matter?

comment Isn't wielding inappropriately large weapons pretty powerful?
@DanceSC If you compare a 2d6+9 against a 3d6+9 (first level raging barbarian, the numbers are worse if you start factoring in higher strenghts or enhancment bonuses) the damage increase is way lower than 150%. The same way, your treshold could be bigger. Hitting AC 10 with a -2 to hit bonus hits 8 times out of 20 versus the 10/20 of the -0 to hit. It's 20% less to hit chance.
