Dark Souls is one of the most influential video games of all time, with From Software’s 2011 masterpiece finding its elements used in a wide variety of other action and role-playing games. Those that use many of the same mechanics, listed below, are collectively known as Souls-likes:

  • Unlockable checkpoints (bonfires)
  • Currency (souls) dropped at death
  • An interconnected world with locked doors and shortcuts
  • Respawn enemies on death or rest

Due to the “like” in the name, we have excluded From Software’s own games, including all Souls, Bloodborne, Sekiro and Elden Ring games.
