Its present everywhere in Elden Ring, they haven't lost that magic, its just very clear that Yharnam was planned over a much longer time same as the DS 1 map with huge considerations for what the experience will be for the player, ERs macro design can't allow for some of those subtler but more important intricacies like finding yourself inside Iosefkas clinic.

Sekiro has some great exploration magic like this too.

Bloodborne is FromSofts magnum opus imo. Enough customization for different playstyles but still a really focused concept for combat a la aggression over all else. Yharnam is their second best labyrinth map after DS1. The story is so well developed it really presents Lovecraft in a visual medium better than any movie ive seen.
