11Best walking simulators

The term ‘walking simulator’ has started springing up in the last few years.

I don’t particularly like the phrase myself, but it’s useful in describing a particular genre of games that seems to have become more prevalent in recent years. It’s the kind of game that’s somewhere between a point and click adventure and a narrative experience; a game that requires some input from you – usually some light puzzle solving – but mostly, you’re just walking through environments while the story unfolds around you.

These are our favourite 10 games that we’d describe as walking simulators. If you’re a fan of this genre, then these 10 really need to be in your games library.
