What the hell am I supposed to do? I'm just walking around the island and there is someone narrating, is that all is this supposed to be?

Hooray for doing absolutely no research before buying a game!

Yes. If you expected something more, it's ONLY your own damn fault. Heck, right in the Steam description it says:

"Abandoning traditional gameplay for a pure story-driven experience, Dear Esther fuses its beautiful environments with a breathtaking soundtrack to tell a powerful story of love, loss, guilt and redemption."

What you rather have a typical AAA game that is nothing but cliched cinematic story and pretends to have gameplay when it really doesn't?

Because Starcraft, Battlefield and Call of Duty the most important part of those games are the cinematics and story.

Not saying that what he said was right, but still a dumb mistake to read absolutely NOTHING about a "game". What were you looking for in it?

CATS. That's about it honestly...

No I'd rather have a typical indie game that is literally nothing but no gameplay and pretends it has a story, when it really doesn't.
