Dark Souls?

Dark Souls is a thrd-party title inspired by a first party exclusive. So wrong way around.

That's right.

OK, new hints are needed apparently.

#30
Cast spells at your servants to make them fall down.
Giant monsters vs. giant aliens!

#29
Eat PCB (printed curcuit board).
You play a round red/orange (not yellow!) blob.

#28
This game had for the last three years exactly the same position in my list, now it changed.
This first game in it's series is based on the gameplay of a previous series from the same dev.

It's kinda sad (but not surprising) to realize that I own a lot of the games you guys mention but I've never even tried them.

Entering the top 30:

30) The final boss fight in this game is LONG and if you're unlucky (like yours truly) it can heal itself to full health.

29) The offspring of freedom.

28) The MC of this game is many people's favorite in the franchise, but no one would deny that he starts out as a jerk.

Here are some more clues:

30.  There is a PS4 first party exclusive that is strongly inspired by this third party entry, the first time this franchise went open world.

Dark Souls?

nope.

Here are some more clues:

32.  This game is the first time that this series had a female as the main protagonist.  However, some fans consider this game to have no "main" protagonist since several characters get a lot of attention from the story.

31.  In this entry you have amazing control over the character's main weapon as you fight your way through the home of the greatest villain ever.

30.  There is a PS4 first party exclusive that is strongly inspired by this third party entry, the first time this franchise went open world.

29.  This first entry in the series is based on a classic piece of literature.

30: Bloodborne?

31: God of War?

both incorrect.

30. Final Fantasy 10?
29. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty?
28. Final Fantasy 8?



More Hints:

31. a. In this entry you have amazing control over the character's main weapon as you fight your way through the home of the greatest villain ever.
b. In the NES and SNES entries of this series the character uses an iconic main weapon.  In later entries other weapons are sometimes used.

30. a.  There is a PS4 first party exclusive that is strongly inspired by this third party entry, the first time this franchise went open world.
b. The game I'm looking for originally appeared on the PS2.

29. a. This first entry in the series is based on a classic piece of literature.
b. There is a character in this game that is over three hundred years old and only ever had one true friend.


28. The arcade version of this game is known for it's 2-player co-op, but when it was ported to the NES, it was a single player game.

Demon Souls doesn't fit my second hint, that would Dark Souls fit (with Demon being the first series from the same dev the gameplay is based on). But either way, it is wrong.

#29 Castlevania

#28 I don't know too much about arcade games, but Gauntlet is known for it's multiplayer as I remember
