    Games like Dark Souls

    Post by Muker on Sun Apr 14, 2013 5:12 pm

    I will probably finish the game for the 5th time somewhere during this weekend and will probably take a break for a month or so.

    And the question is, what to get as a replacement? (X360)

    What I liked the most in DkS was the open world that I could travel and than got smashed around by enemies or the enviroment. Discovering everything step by step etc.

    Currently I'm thinking of either Dragon Dogma or Witcher 2. Is there anything else I should consider (or will anyone lend me their PS3 so I could try DeS big grin )

    Dragon's Dogma is nothing like Dark Souls,you are followed around by 3 people who never shut up at all times.I don't think that aside from Demons' Souls,there is anything similar.Though if you don't mind guns in your RPG,I'd recommend Fallout New Vegas.

    Monster Hunter has similar gameplay. Just way way slower.

    Monster Hunter, definitely. I mean... it's the first thing it reminded me of, the Souls series that is, and it's the only game I like more than Dark and Demon's Souls. As for Dragon's Dogma.. it's a horrid wannabe Monster Hunter with an even worse storyline. If you want a game similar to Dark souls... I also recommend Way of The Samurai 3 (or 4 if they have it on 360 now). you pretty much make your own sword and whatnot, do favors around town.. its very entertaining. A game that is easily finished in one sitting but has lots of replay value.

    Didn't Way of the Samurai 3 get horrible reviews? I still own 2 but I preferred 1 personally.

    lol I never pay attention to reviews. Most of the people that give em are either biased or can't play at all. I have yet to see a decent review where the person looks at the pros and cons of a game without taking their preferences into consideration. Either way, WoTS 3 is purely amazing. The 4th one is even better.

    WoTS3 is on 360 as well though. If he had a PS3, I'd suggest Tokyo Jungle. not like Dark Souls, but just as fun and addictive.

    Monster Hunter is nothing like Dark Souls the only similar thing is the ability to roll through monster attacks

    Will check the samurai game.

    Since D Dogma was my strongest candidate, would anyone care to elaborate why it sucks?

    Or being Polish I should maybe stick to a Witcher.

    Believe me if I had the PS3 I would drop everythig for the Tokyo Jungle. It looks awesome big grin

    I thought Dragon's Dogma was excellent. I wanted a different experience from DkS for a while, so I played it and had a blast. Don't conpare it to Dark Souls though, just go in thinking of it as some other RPG.

    Master Mode on Skyrim
    Without weapons
    Or armor
    Or leveling
    Or anything
    Also a mod that makes everything one shot you
    And a mod that makes you have 0 stamina at all times
    And a mod that makes you have 0 MP at all times

    The Witcher 2 was absolutely amazing and almost as hard as Dark Souls(at first). I loved The Witcher 2 and wished I had played the 1st one but I'm on 360 as well. Dragon's Dogma was terrible so I'd steer clear away if I were you but again that's up to you. Also these games are not terribly hard but are almost as fun and amazing as Dark Souls like Borderlands 1&2,The Bioshock series, Red Dead Redemption, Bayonetta, Arkham Asylum & Arkham City,Mass effect 1,2,&3 and Dragon Age:Origins but there isn't another game out there as rewarding as Dark Souls, at least for the Xbox. I just wish they released Monster Hunter for xbox. That's one PS3 game I'd love to play aside from Demon Souls

    Fallout 3 with a high difficulty setting makes it for me as one of the best games going. So many deaths, so hard to actually become near-unkillable. Plus, better quests and secrets than Skyrim (another evil Dreadlord? Wow, never saw that coming!)


    I've only played Way of the Samurai 2, but if you can somehow play that do so. Genuinely awesome game.

    Can't believe I didn't mention Fallout and you're right about the difficulty settings especially in fallout NV w/Hardcore settings which make the game even more intense

    I mainly suggested 3 as of my five friends who have played New Vegas only one seems to like it. I've yet to play it though, so I'll have to get round to it. But Fallout 3 gave me a lot more problems than Skyrim did, and I liked pushing myself towards places I really shouldn't be in.

    From soft made kings field. I've never played it, but apparently its spiritual successor is demons souls (who's spiritual successor is dark souls)

    Well, to discuss Dragon's dogma.. Like I said, It was a failed attempt at making a more polished, story-driven monster hunter which fell flat in most ways.. mainly having useless folowers who don't shut up and very cheap monsters. for the kid who said Monster hunter is nothing like Dark Souls... why do you think they called in the grandaddy of all games, the director of the Monster hunter franchise, to direct Dark Souls 2? the games are very much alike, if youve played both as much as I have.

    I tried playing 'Kings Field' only yesterday. Had it for years, never able to get any further than the first stretch of water, same yesterday and same result, I gave up, mainly because the graphics are so horrible.
    Fallout 3 is one of my favourite RPG's, definitely recommend it. I'm playing 'Kingdoms of Amalur' at the mo'. A bit of a pain at first but I'm really enjoying it now. It's a bit like 'Skyrim' in colour if you know what I mean but the combat is more precise. Available on Xbox and a reasonabvle price.
    Didn't like 'The Witcher 2', way too linear and 'Dragon's Dogma' was a big disappointment, the pawns got on my nerves. I hated being trailed by hangers on but one gamer's poison is another one's meat, so to speak.

    The witcher 2 is a bit linear but for gameplay and story the only thing better is the souls series. Go with the witcher 2!

    I've played every single one of the Monster Hunter games (excluding Frontier) and obviously Dark Souls and do not find them comparable. I wouldn't say to someone 'if you liked Dark Souls you'd like Monster Hunter' or vice versa. Also I'd prefer if you didn't refer to me as 'kid' again, I'm not being a ****, it is just very condescending.

    Lets not get our panties in a bunch. Kid is no different from dude to many people and no condescending intent was necessarily present.
