Demon's Souls*

Edit: plus Demon's Souls did applied realistic physics and damage realism. So there is a serious penalty with wrong moves, it is like Gran Turismo of action games.

Once you play a game like dark souls it's hard to play anything else. Partly become its such a rewarding experience when you kill bosses you actually feel like you have achieved something

Challenge is fun. Exploration is fun. The genre isn't really one I understood until I actually beat one of the games. I realized what a superior experience these games provide. Nioh is also an amazing game. These games are just so good, that any other game that tries something different better be really good as well. Games like Bayonetta 2, Astral Chain, and DMC5 have done well while offering different mechanics, so it isn't every game, however the game structure of Soulsborne is timeless, and almost always rewarding in some way.
