The Top Ten

1 Demon's Souls

Demon's Souls is a videogame, made by the same developers. It is actually older than Dark Souls but it is less polished and popular which means that many people haven't played it yet and it is definitely the best choice a Dark Souls fan can make after finishing Dark Souls, since the mechanics are pretty much the same.
Recommendation score: 10/10
Final score: 9/10

2 Bloodborne

Another game that is made by the same developers.
Bloodborne is better than Demon's Souls, but the mechanics in this game have changed and that might make Dark Souls fans feel less familiar with Bloodborne, other than that, it is definitely worth picking up since it is considered to be one of the best videogames of the eighth generation and actually better than the first 2 Dark Souls games.
Recommendation score: 9/10
Final score: 9.5/10

3 Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

And the last game that is made by the same developers.
Sekiro is not only one of the best videogames ever been released, but it is even better than Dark Souls and Bloodborne, so, what places it in the third place? The mechanics have changed so much in order to make it feel like a completely different game and that makes it FromSoftware's most challenging game up to date.
Recommendation score: 9/10
Final score: 9.5/10

4 Nioh

A mix between Sekiro's world and Demon's Souls' gameplay, Nioh might have few flaws but it is has everything a Dark Souls' fan want to see in a videogame made by different developers.
Recommendation score: 9/10
Final score: 9/10

A mix between Sekiro's world and Demon's Souls' gameplay.
Nioh has everything a Dark Souls' fan want to see in a Dark Souls alike videogame made by different developers.
Recommendation score: 9/10
Final score: 8.5/10

5 Hollow Knight Hollow Knight

A 2D action platformer made by a small team of few people.
Hollow Knight is the best Dark Souls inspired videogame that is not made by FromSoftware and it is very cheap for it's playtime.
Recommendation score: 9/10
Final score: 9/10

6 Dead Cells

Similar to Hollow Night, Dead Cells is a fantastic game to pick up if you are looking for a 2D Dark Souls inspired videogame.
Recommendation score: 9/10
Final score: 9/10

7 Code Vein

Code Vein is similar to Dark Souls but it has different mechanics and a completely different art style which makes it very different overall and worth playing.
Recommendation score: 9/10
Final score: 8/10

8 Ashen

Ashen is exactly what a Dark Souls rip off would look like.
Is it bad though? No, it is a good Dark Souls alike videogame.
Recommendation score: 9/10
Final score: 7/10

9 The Surge

The Surge is a pretty good attempt for being a Dark Souls inspired videgame with completely different setting.
Recommendation score: 9/10
Final score: 7/10

10 Lords of the Fallen

A flawed game overall but the Dark Souls fans will definitely have fun with Lords of The Fallen since it is similar to Dark Souls but with minor changes.
Recommendation score: 9/10
Final score: 7/10
