1The Best Point-and-Click Adventures

While the genre was at its peak in the 1990s, there are still plenty of excellent point and click games made today.

Some adventure games are heavily inspired by the point and click genre – like Telltale’s Walking Dead series, for example. There might not be much literal pointing and clicking, but the games’ approach to puzzle solving is very much based on the genre’s roots. But in this list we’ve tried to focus on the games that stick more traditionally to point and click puzzle solving. Whether or not you’re actually moving around a cursor, they’re very much firmly of the genre.

Point and click games on PS4 take a number of shapes and sizes. We’re lucky to have some excellent remasters of LucasArts classics, and there are plenty that have been directly inspired by those games, too. But if you enjoy an excellent narrative adventure and like to solve puzzles by scouring around environments, this is the list for you. Click on through to see our picks of the best point and click games on PS4.
