Look, we have beat-em-ups and shoot-em-ups, it only makes sense that idle games should be called "click-em-ups" and diablo-likes should be called "loot-em-ups"

@matt I'm pretty sure I've seen Rock Paper Shotgun use "explore-em-up"

@valrus Seems like a good alternative to "walking simulator" 👍

@matt Tbh I like "walking simulator" but I feel like it's been sort of reclaimed and I only ever see it used affectionately instead of pejoratively any more
