The Souls Series has become famous (or infamous) for its often merciless difficulty

With the series coming to a close, let’s take a look at 11 games similar to Dark Souls

From Software’s Dark Souls is well-known for is not necessarily its difficulty, but its refusal to follow convention. In an era where First Person Shooters dominate the market, RPGs like Skyrim and Fallout 4 feeling more like walking simulators, and with most games being criticized for treating players like complete morons, Dark Souls decided to do the impossible, to actually do something different. With its reliance on minimalistic storytelling through atmosphere and environment, emphasis on slow and calculated combat, and of course its renown difficulty, Dark Souls has quickly become one of my favorite series.

Also it seems that with the release of the DLC for Dark Souls 3, the Ringed City, the beloved series is coming to an end. So to honor such a remarkable series, here is our list of the top 11 best games like Dark Souls.

11. Devil May Cry 3

The 2006 hack-and-slash serves as a prequel to the original Devil May Cry. Devil May Cry 3 tells the backstory to the main Character Dante, his brother Virgil, and other characters in the series. In the game, a being known as Arkham wants to rule over an Earth overrun by demons and Dante and Virgil fight their way through a giant tower past demons and other enemies to reach Arkham at the top.

Combat in Devil May Cry 3 is focused on melee combos and the more aggressive and unique your attack pattern the higher your score. Like Dark Souls, Devil May Cry is a dark fantasy with a focus on challenging combat.

Fight through enemies and rack up combos as either Dante or Virgil
