Surely there’s a better name for games like Gone Home than “walking simulator”

AVclub: "I really dislike the term “walking simulator.” Maybe it is the best term to describe this brand of first-person adventure game, but it feels laden with condescension. "

The story is too old to be commented.

They could call it simulated walking.

story driven exploration game?

Sight-seeing games? Non-gameplay games?

If you go by what genre I'd put it in, I'd probably get a restriction from commenting because you can't say such things about games.

Otherwise, it's an adventure game. Not a good one, but that's the core genre it resides in.
