Hollow Knight is in this category? I actually played that one. Beat it, too! If I knew it was a "Soulslike" I probably would have skipped it. I have a phobia about super hard games these days.

Hollow Knight is a 10/10 for me.

HK is much much harder than any soulslike I've played (haven't played Sekiro and from what I gather that's not veeery soulslike either). The early Souls games (DeS, DS1+2) need hardly any "skill", just a bit of patience and a healthy dose of fear of the unknown.

I also thought HK much harder than the Souls games until the second time I've played it. Then it just clicked somehow in my brain. In a way, it's very much like Sekiro in that it requires quick reflexes and a low vulnerability to "panicking", although later Souls games have been increasingly punitive of panicking as they got faster.
