I´ve been looking for some point and click games , a lot look amazing but i'm not a big fan of mouse controls.

Are there anymore games like Syberia 3 or TWD out there? What i mean is games where you move the main character with either WASD or a controller stick.

get used to mouse controls.

some of the absolute best point n click adventures only work with mouse to the point where you won't even consider interactive sims like TWD/heavy rain etc. in the same league as traditional adventures.

if you're that much of a stickler for controller you could go for the lucasarts remasters(grim fandango, day of the tentacle, monkey island 1-2, full throttle) since they all include controller support on account of them also being released for console.

Majority of the best point and click adventures require a mouse though, like Sam and Max Hit the Road and Indy and The Fate of Atlantis, and GK Sins of the Fathers.The latter got a remake/remaster/something recently though so it may have gamepad support. However, I'd highly advise playing the original instead, with the original voice acting and visuals.

They're called "adventure games." Not "point & click games." The fact that you want ones where you literally do not point or click are a clue to this.

Grim Fandango is pretty much the best adventure game of this type ever, and it's meant to be played with the keyboard. The remastered edition has optional mouse controls, but the proper way is with tank controls on the keyboard (which you have to enable, the default keyboard controls are a crappy positional movement system).

They are called point and click though, they have there own category.

They are called point and click though,

Calling them "point & click" makes you sound like a baby who calls a train a "choo choo" or a cat a "meow meow." At the very least call them "point & click adventures." In addition to not sounding like a cretin, you also distinguish them from any other type of game that uses point & click controls.

It doesn't really work as a subcategory either; Grim Fandango isn't a different kind of game from Monkey Island just because one favors mouse control and another favors keyboard control. While Myst *is* a different kind of game from Monkey Island even though both favor mouse controls.

No it does not, they have been called this for decades. I don't know where you have been but literally everyone calls them that.
