The 10 best games like Dark Souls

Sorry, definition nerds. “Soulslike” is a word now. Disgusting, I know, but this is how genres are made. Along comes a giant like Dark Souls that everybody won’t stop bleating about and soon it has copycats. Before you know it, a swarm of like-minded games with sparse checkpoints and lethal attacks are scuttling around, leaving slime trails and biting your ankles for surprisingly massive damage.…

Outward Will Mix Survival And High Fantasy

Fantasy games have always been about the chosen hero foretold by prophecy, the lone knight wandering the wilderness saving the every-man from any number of horrific beast.
