Point-And-Click Purist. Anything else spoils the genre.

Point-And-Click as well as Keyboard for shortcuts.

Point-And-Click or Keyboard/Mouse for everything.

Oh, “Interactive Fiction” isn’t new - Infocom games were always called that, and it’s been the usual name for the genre since the resurgence in the mid-90s when Inform appeared. These days it encompasses Twine-style multiple choice games as well as parsers - as long as the text is the main thing.

Sierra-style graphical games with parser input are rarer though - I struggle to think of any recent apart from Stories Untold, and that’s not quite the same thing.

Snail Trek is fairly recent.
