Tross had mentioned a game called Red Goddess too. I think it's similar.

I had considered adding that to my list, but I felt it didn't have quite the right vibe or aesthetic for the list I was putting together. A little too cartoony, I think. The rest (including Ghost Song) are pretty desolate and grim, even if they do feature vibrant atmospheres in some cases, ya know? I was also thinking of putting Kentucky Route Zero on the list since it's not technically complete, as well as The Long Dark for thematic reasons. In any case, I think four is a good number for now, but I may put together similar lists in the future... :lol:

I've been interested in Kentucky Route Zero. My old BitMob/GamesBeat editor swears it's the best thing ever and that I should play it. I never heard it compared to Souls in any way though.

Heh, I don't think it's a comparison most people would instantly make, but it is a story concerned with exploring disparate, broken narratives and how they coalesce, as well as dark and mysterious environments to uncover clues to great conundrums. I will admit it's not totally comparable, but I get the same vibe from it as I do when I'm playing Souls games and just exploring and come across a new character. The situation is odd, off-putting, and unique. I would say it's a sort of a modern-set Souls game without the combat and whatnot. Maybe that's getting too far away from what makes Souls games what they are (those mechanics don't define the series for me), but I can see folks who are deeply invested in the lore and atmosphere of Souls being interested in KRZ.

Or, I could just be a total weirdo, haha. Like I said, I was going to leave it off my list - it's a bit of a stretch, but an indie I'd definitely recommend for ANYONE. I'll undoubtedly put together another non-Souls list toward the end of the week.

Been keeping up with E3 for most of the day (even though by all rights I should be studying :/) and I've gotta say I'm liking a lot of what I'm seeing this year.

So far I'm becoming very interested in...

1. Farcry 4
2. Assassin's Creed Unity
3. The Division
4. Rainbow Six: Seige
5. Call of Duty: AW (it actually looks like it might be good...praise the sun!)
6. Destiny

Sony's conference just started so I'm sure this list will grow in just a few ;)

I just got home from the e3 PlayStation experience in Buffalo. Holy hell was it a cool way to watch. The exclusive developer interviews at the end gave some nice extra info I'll be sure to share in my article.
