What are (point and click) adventure games?

Adventure games are all about stories, exploring worlds and solving puzzles. Adventure games focus on puzzle solving within a narrative framework, generally with few or no action elements. Other popular names for this genre are “graphic adventure” or “point and click adventure”, but these represent only part of a much broader, diverse range of games.
