1Walking Simulator, or Narrative-Driven Adventure?

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

We don’t particularly like the term, but “walking simulator” is useful in describing a particular genre of games. 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’ll spend your time travelling through environments while the story unfolds around you. We’ve rounded up some of the best walking simulator games on PS4 right here.

Like getting absorbed in a good story? Enjoy meeting intriguing characters? Then the chances are you’ll love some, if not all, of the games on this list. If narrative-driven adventure is what you love, then click on through to see our picks.
