    Go play Demon's Souls.

    Other than that, stop expecting other games to be same as a series that's made to be unique and be content (I know it's difficult though silly)

    Haha I know your pain my friend, it's hard BUT I would recommend that you play through demon's souls. Good luck finding a game as good as the Soul Series! lol!

    King's Field, but good luck finding the PS1 versions. The Armored Core series is somewhat similar in many aspects and also developed by From Software to boot!

    There are lots of similar games, but they're similar in specific aspects. Ie resident evil 4 i similar in its unforgiving difficulty and encourages caution and balancing risk vs reward.

    Dungeon crawls like Wizardry are similar in format. Advancing from area to area without direction and only a vauge goal and continuous returning to the hub to manage supplies and gear. (DKs is a dungeon crawler with action rpg elements, not an action rpg)

    What specificly are you looking for?

    I used to own that game... I now want to buy all the kings fields off E-bay, because now it's not just "A crappy game that I for some reason like", it's a great game by From I know and love.

    The difficulty and sense of achievement along with the dungeon crawling elements

    Ah, well I can't remember King's Fields difficulty, but it is Dark Souls granddaddy so accomplishment and crawler elements are there. Armored Core certainly hits difficulty and sense of accomplishment, playing on Hard mode in 4A is not a joke and I feel some missions make Dark Souls seem like childs play (Red Rum, I shall hate you forever)

    Personally I can't think of many games similar, but then I have a smaller library than others. You make have to sacrifice some aspects for others.

    Then play any old school dungeon crawler. The Wizardry series is a good place to start.

    Keep your graph paper handy, you'll need it or you won't get anywhere.

    The battle systems are typical jrpg stuff but its still very difficult just in a different way. The dungeon crawling is much more advanced so expect to get lost and spend an hour barely alive as you look for the exit.

    DkS always reminded me of a hardcore-more RPG Zelda. At least the PvE.

    I keep wanting to find my old copy of The Bards Tale, I have to say old school crawlers certainly do fill all those needs and nothing beats having to make your own maps.
