    Demon's Souls.. lol silly

    I heard that shadow of the colossus on PS2 (just been HD rereleased on PS3) is similar in style of giant bosses, but is not the same kind of difficulty or pose significant challenge.

    It's very difficult to compare Souls games to other games because they were and hopefully will continue to be created as an innovation, not following a trend or preset stereotype.

    lol Shadow of the Colossus has no mobs! And was infamous for it!

    It's not really similar to the Souls games in any way, but it is definitely a game worth playing.

    As for games like Souls... Sadly I can't think of any. sad

    Kings Field is kinda similar, I haven't played it in maybe 8-10 years though. Plus it's what Demon/Dark Souls was based off of, how can you not play it :p

    Beaten this game a few times and I don't feel anywhere near done with it. Master the PvP side of things!

    Yep, there is another vote for Monster Hunter. MHFU is the hardest game ever, but people in NA/EU don't know it because it's more popular in japan. It's the best japan title ever and the hardest. In Dark Souls you can turn some handle to open some doors and die, but you still get what you achieved after death. In Monster Hunter Freedom Unite you can die in 50 minute of 55 minutes quest and loose everything including 1 hour of life. You have to start over because of small mistake. And in the end game when you reach Grank lvl 3 you have the greatest feeling of achievment. You can look at your character like in Dark Souls and say to yourself "I've gone through so much, but it was worth my power now" big grin

    I actually chimed in on a discussion about kings field the other night, which I had never heard of, and it inspired me to do a little digging on my own. Evidently From Software put out a game called Enchanted Arms as a ps3 launch title. I guess it didn't do so well, which explains why I had never heard of it. It doesn't look too too much like the souls games but being that its by the same team I'd assume that its worth checking out. I youtubed it and the combat looks pretty interesting, like a mix of classic rpg elements with trpg elements. I'm a huge fan of the trpg too. Too bad its a dying a genre. RIP fire emblem, FFT.

    what do you mean by 'like dark souls'? resident evil 4 is like dark souls in many ways, general combat tactics/ enemy threat level, first time through being so nerve wracking you take pot shots at anything that moves/you thought moved/ is unnaturaly still/ looks funny. or did you mean combat system or loose story with an emphasis on exploring? or straight difficulty? like dark souls in what way? to get any real recommendation (if i have one) i need to know what about dark souls you're looking for in other games.

    YOU CANT GIVE UP HOPE!! FIRE EMBLEM MUST GO ON! I DO BELIEVE IN FAIRYS I DO I DO...... oh *cough* sorry bout that.

    Mines of moria (aka moria, angband and many other versions)
    Its a very old(yes im showing my age) computer game that still has a dedicated fan base. Its the best and hardest rpg ever. Yes best ever. If you die its game over and time to start a new toon. Yip its that hardcore. Some people have been playing for years and never won.

    Yes! I'm a Moria alumnus, and Angband too. I'd say those games are more similar to Diablo and Torchlight, in that you're doing dungeon runs for random treasure. Dark Souls is different.
    In terms of the style though, I'd say Shadow of the Colossus is quite similar; it's all about bosses which can only be beaten by observation and tactics. Otherwise not so similar.

    I considered SotC more of an action/ puzzle game, really. All you needed was to figure out how to beat the boss.

    yes its more like diablo.
    But if you want a game with a "prepare to die" sales pitch, then they dont come any harder than moria. Took me 15 years and maybe 3000 hours(never counted but im sure its near that.) before i beat the game.

    Ehhh... I never could beat it. Ancient multi-hued dragons got me every time, and yeah, you die and it takes another 50 hours or whatever to get back to that kind of level... it was soul destroying and awesome.

    Shadow of the Colossus is nothing like Dark Souls/Demon's Souls, but it's also special in it's own way and I find the plot to be way more interesting. It's challenging aswell if you dont read walkthroughs or guides, since every boss has a weakness annd it's up to you to discover it. Which isnt easy after you've killed the first two or three. A masterpiece.

    Monster Hunter is the closest I have played in format. I have been told the Armored Core games have elements that really show up in PvP like positioning, but I've never played them myself. As far as feeling, I would say the Souls series is pretty singular. SoTC was powerful but from a different perspective.

    Monster hunter is just awesome! I have all the titles and even multi player is brilliant!
    I honestly don't think there is another game that compares to souls so it is really difficult to find an RPG with so much online multiplayer action!

    Dark Souls reminds me a lot of a multiplayer, more-complex, more-difficult Legend of Zelda. Haven't tried the latest one yet on Wii, but if you like this kind of action-rpg-dungeoncrawl, might be worth looking into.

    If you're looking for multiplayer action, idunno, WoW.

    If you just want a game where you can use whatever goddamn weapon you want, customize stuff, cast magic and crap, Skyrim is pretty good.

    Somebody actually just told me about that recently. I checked out their website but have yet to play any of it. I could really use that fix too. The FFTA games are pretty poor excuses IMO.
