Serious Question

What exactly is supposed to make a game a game according to the people who want to exclude some games from that category? There’s a lot in common between, say, Myst and Dear Esther, but the former is an “adventure game”, and the latter is a “walking simulator.” Meanwhile, TWINE games aren’t games, but interactive fiction is, and there’s even less separating those.
