I want to play it, but it also gets a lot of hate .. they call it point and click game or whatever
In a certain way.... this kind of game is reminiscent of the point-and-click genre that was hugely popular in the 90´s on PC Gaming. It has a similar feel in terms of gameplay (given it´s 3D instead of 2D)...
No, it ain‘t, not even in a certain way. QD games belong to the game genre https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_interactive_movies and have not much in common with point & click adventure games.
Here are some examples for recently released point & click adventure games:

Classic point & click games have a fraction of QD games‘ budget. The reason is that - in the best case - millions of people are willing to buy interactive movies these days, but only some ten thousands worldwide buy p&c games. Even Ron Gilbert‘s last (and excellent) point&click game "Thimbleweed Park" from 2017 didn‘t sell enough to earn him enough money to make another game (Ron Gilbert is a legendary game designer among point&click fans, he created the first two "Monkey Island" games for LucasArts).
BTW, I like some interactive movies (Life Is Strange, Tales from the Borderlands, The Wolf Among Us, King‘s Quest , Ken Follett‘s Pillars of the Earth).
