Why have major publishers aside from Bandai Namco and Koei Tecmo slept on this genre for so long?

    it's not a genre, it's just a large number of clones.

        Please show me the Souls Clone equivalents (in terms of how different they are from eachother) of Tribes, Swat 4, Metroid Prime, Overwatch, Titanfall, and Half Life Alyx. You can't. Souls clones use the same basic mechanics and all go for the same pacing and feel.

          Objectively wrong
          Some Souls-likes focus on ecploration, other on action. They can be fast or slow, they have different weapon mechanics and different movement mechanics.

            Not a souls-like if it doesn't have stamina

          Souls is different from Elden Ring
          Lies of P is very different
          Nioh is very different
          Code Vein is very different
          The Surge is very different
          ...

      >It's still an MMO
      I'm convinced DE would make top tier games if not for falling for the live service meme
      Warframe gameplay in terms of TPS is pretty much unmatched but it's tied to a shitty MMO

    Because souls-like gameplay is repetitive trash. If From starts losing their touch for level design then they'll become worthless

      The first is a Lorda of the Fallen hard reboot with a new team

      The third is a more narrative and exploration driven game with dialogues, questlines and branching story

      The sixth is a very early in development Souls-like with major focus on interconnected exploration and time warping mechanics
