Collection of all the souls like games

1 : Anonymous2021/04/04 17:54 ID: mk16qg

So far I have bloodborne and demon souls, I know I need dark souls 1-3. Are there any other souls like games that I need?

2 : Anonymous2021/04/04 17:56 ID: gtd9qdn

Sekiro is the other one made by Fromsoft, I'd definitely recommend it.

ID: gtd9x6h

I'll check it out forsure

ID: gtdivgt

Don't let that game and it's hype fool you. It's the steepest learning curve, but eventually becomes the easiest souls game.

Seemingly unpopular opinion, but I enjoyed The Surge 1&2. Platinumed both and had a blast doing it.

4 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:27 ID: gtddcd6

Nioh series is probably the thing you should play after all of From's games. It's different but has Souls influences. Good games.

ID: gtddzcq

Yessir added it to my list

Salt and sanctuary is a sick 2d souls game

ID: gteazx3

Might as well throw Hollow Knight in there too. Has many Souls-like elements.

6 : Anonymous2021/04/04 19:24 ID: gtdjuxy

Code Vein is basically anime souls, has a lot of the same mechanics and also published by bandai.

7 : Anonymous2021/04/04 17:57 ID: gtd9sot


Nioh 1 & 2

The Surge 1 & 2

Mortal Shell

That should keep you busy until Elden Ring comes out. Also For Honor is alot of fun. It has a unique and surprisingly deep combat system.

Edit: Remnant is supposedly souls-like as well. Also, Monster Hunter World

ID: gtda07j

I appreciate the list, I heard about mortal shell didn't know if it was good

ID: gtda871

It's short (about 10 hours to 100%) but a very good clone

ID: gtda3h6

I haven't tried it yet but definitely plan to soon.

ID: gtdaan1

Jedi: Fallen Order also has some very strong souls influences.

ID: gtdajw7

I've actually played that game, it was decent.

ID: gtdgmwd

It's also on sale on PSN right now, $25 for the "deluxe edition"

ID: gtdin9c

Is Mortal shell any good? It looks great, but also kinda empty looking in comparison to souls.

ID: gtdvs4t

The surge 2 is legit very very good, story is meh but great equipment system

ID: gtdfiin

Don’t miss out on Ashen and Hellpoint, both with online co-op.

Nioh 1 and 2 remastered for sure. I finished nioh 1 the other day and just started nioh 2. Playing them in 4k 60 fps is amazing. Or even 120 fps if you rather that. Mortal shell reminds me of dark souls a lot.

ID: gte8sae

Nioh 2 is so fucking good. Enjoy

(1 is good also, but 2 improves on it in every single way, which you may have already heard)

9 : Anonymous2021/04/04 19:21 ID: gtdjjr9

Hollow knight.

10 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:17 ID: gtdc6qj

Hollow Knight is an absolute must play. In my opinion, none of the other major Souls-likes (Nioh, The Surge, that Star Wars game, Lords of the Fallen) come close to approaching the feel of the souls series. HK nails the tone and atmosphere

ID: gtduzv8

HK nails it. I see what you did here. I "dig" it.

11 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:22 ID: gtdcpvx

if you like FromSoft games, Sekiro is your next logical step. game is amazing

ID: gtdd90g

That is definitely at the top of my list once I get the dark souls games.

ID: gtddb9r

hell yeah brother, enjoy ⚔️

ID: gtdg7fp

Demon souls and Sekiro will ruin all of the dark souls games for you unfortunately. Gotta play sekiro last imo.

ID: gtdurak

Demons Souls and Sekiro are incredible but they definitely don’t come close to ruining Bloodborne haha that game is a masterpiece

12 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:50 ID: gtdfybe

Definitely check out Shadow Tower if you like PS1 gems.

13 : Anonymous2021/04/04 22:03 ID: gte244m

Remnant From the Ashes feels like a gun version. Imperative you play woth friends, it is tough in all the right ways!

14 : Anonymous2021/04/04 22:39 ID: gte61w5


Nioh 1 & 2 (Samurai Souls like, superb games)

Remnant from the ashes (if you have ps plus grab it now, its free until next week)(its an awesome game, shooter souls like)

Mortal Shell (amazing indie Souls like, has some cool original mechanic)

Surge 1 & 2 (Futuristic sci-fi souls like)

Hellpoint (Sci-fi Souls like, future alien kinda setting)

Lords of the Fallen (Same devs as Surge, its almost a cult classic)

Ashen (dark souls lite its called, its like if zelda/journey/darksouls had a baby)

Chronos before the ashes (more puzzles and lore, simple combat)(prequel to Remnant but more short and simple)

Code Vein (anime souls like) there's a demo

Necropolis (this is a Rouge like game first, but it has a souls like combat and feeling, wait for sale)

Immortal: Unchained ( I HAVEN'T PLAYED THIS) ( still its a shooter souls like indie game, its seems to have a small fan base)

2d games:

Titan Souls

Salt and Sanctuary ( very good)

Hallow knight (more castlevania like, but recommend its great game)

ID: gtehupc

nothing to add there I think u got em all sadly I played all of those except chronos...

15 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:01 ID: gtda9m8

Just because I haven't seen it recommended, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has soulslike elements.

ID: gtdalbp

I've played it but appreciate the recommendation.

16 : Anonymous2021/04/04 23:51 ID: gtedtfh

I’m not necessarily recommending it but Lords of the Fallen is a Dark Souls clone.

I have all Soulslike games that are on PS4 and PS5... all installed on my PS4... feel free to dm me and I’ll send you the screengrab of all the games.. it’s easier than typing it all out

20 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:07 ID: gtdazma

Ensure you play all the From Software ones first. None of the other devs come close to their greatness in thjs genre they created.

Will do

Top 10 Best Soulslikes (not developed by From Software) by IGN

22 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:22 ID: gtdcs78

I really liked Ashen. Probs best with a friend, but I liked the artwork and the whole atmosphere was cool. Not overly difficult I would say though

ID: gtdfqv4

Ashen is really good. My favorite soulslike after the FROM software games and Nioh.

ID: gtdgvjo

I wish they would give us an 60fps patch for the PS5.

ID: gtddma1

Just saw some gameplay of it, will definitely add it to my list

23 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:41 ID: gtdezbe

Lords of the Fallen

24 : Anonymous2021/04/04 19:00 ID: gtdh66h

Play the Dark Souls trilogy before worrying about others. Also Sekiro. All of them are great games and the best games in their genre no doubt.

ID: gtdhuo8

So save demon souls, sekiro and bloodborne for after the trilogy?

ID: gteevpa

I don’t think it matters at all when you play BB, Demon’s Souls or Sekiro. Honestly you can play the souls games in any order you like, it’s not like anyone really understands the story on their first play through anyway

26 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:07 ID: gtdb24j

No, just this 5. Then you have all original souls games. Sekiro is mentionable and also good, but not a souls like.

27 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:16 ID: gtdc05m

Is dark souls 2 any good or is it even worth it?

28 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:19 ID: gtdcfnj

Dark Souls 2 splits the community a lot. I like the game a lot and would recommend it. But I would actually play in this order 1, 3 and then 2.

1 for obvious reasons first because it is the original with the lore and epic world design.

3 because it is a Hommage to 1 and many weapons, armors and locations remember you of it.

At last 2 because the story isn't connected to them.

29 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:26 ID: gtdd76d

Well even From's "worst" games are still better than a lot of stuff out there so I'd say yes.

30 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:21 ID: gtdclk3

DS2 might be the black sheep of the Souls series, but it's still a fantastic game in its own right. If you like Demon's Souls, definitely get it. DS2 is a little rough around the edges but it's got a ton of build variety and different magic strats.

31 : Anonymous2021/04/04 18:20 ID: gtdcgtq

It’s the worst FromSoft souls game, but that still makes it better than any of the other non-FromSoft souls-like games, IMO

32 : Anonymous2021/04/04 20:23 ID: gtdqpvm

Remnant From The Ashes counts I believe and is the only Souls like game I enjoy.

33 : Anonymous2021/04/04 20:36 ID: gtds8hp

If you want to play the games that were “souls like” before demons souls or dark souls were even in development, get the ninja gaiden trilogy collection thats coming to ps4 in june. 4k 60 fps on ps5.

34 : Anonymous2021/04/04 20:41 ID: gtdspbi

I never played Ninja Gaiden, will add this to my list as well.

35 : Anonymous2021/04/05 01:30 ID: gteo979

If you have an Xbox360 or Xbox One get the original NGB, NGII and Razors Edge. The Sigma versions have worse ai, cheap difficulty, less gore and worse pacing. The original director had no involvement.

36 : Anonymous2021/04/04 20:42 ID: gtdsv3v

I remember playing on the OG Xbox as a kid and it being maddeningly difficult but as I got older it definitely became more manageable. Still really fun I replay them still and the 4k upgrade will be nice.

37 : Anonymous2021/04/04 19:37 ID: gtdlcvp

I believe it's the gameplay mechanics from the fromsoft games also the hard boss fights, managing stamina and health, playing strategic or aggressive etc, that's my guess.

38 : Anonymous2021/04/04 19:32 ID: gtdkucq

Some really good 2d souls like games are Salt and Sanctuary and Dark Devotion

39 : Anonymous2021/04/05 01:39 ID: gtep8dr

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice

40 : Anonymous2021/04/04 20:06 ID: gtdop5v

Monster Hunter World!

41 : Anonymous2021/04/04 20:07 ID: gtdovfa

I believe that is included with the ps collection, ill check it out

42 : Anonymous2021/04/04 20:08 ID: gtdozdx

Mind you, it's not actually considered a souls type game but there are similarities
