Okay had a huge discussion with my professor. Like I stated before, we aren't fighting about interactivity. Its whether or not Dear Esther is a game or not.

Dear Esther, unlike what some people people say, is completely interactive. A book is interactive, but a book is not an interactive digital medium. Therefore, this product is interactive, no denying it.

Now if its a game or not. To me, Dear Esther is an interactive story, setup like an artistic interactive form. It may not be a game, but hell, no one knows how the remake will play. For this instance the original definitely isn't considered a game.

Dear Esther (the original) isn't a game but it is INTERACTIVE.
