I didn’t realize this was a genre until a few years ago, I love the classicks but I’m curious to learn about more of other folks favorites and obscure gems. I modded my xbox to play all the old system roms and went thru most of the available options on game pass. I finally dove into steam and grabbed almost 30 games to blast thru. The soulslike Metroidvanias like hollow knight and salt and sanctuary are quite enjoyable. Despite the simple rustic mechanisms of these sorts of games, the game play is brutal and punishing but it keeps you coming back for more. I dig the retro throwback style as well as the new school crisp graphics like in the ori games.
If you enjoy these sorts of games, what are your favorites, what did you have fun playing?
