Along with the PlayStation 5, the next-generation console, Sony also introduced the world to the innovative DualSense gamepad, which has several unique features and tricks. For example, the gadget is equipped with the latest vibration technology, which can literally convey the effect of rain, gravel, explosion, or any other effects in the palm of a gamer. What’s more, the device also boasts adaptive trigger technology that alters the pressure level according to gaming conditions. And I have prepared for you a top of ten games that all these tricks can reveal to the fullest.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time
Most often, platformers are fairly simple games that are made for fun with friends or in splendid isolation, but Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is an exception to the rule. The game is quite difficult, it does not give room for error, but it is certainly very addicting. And with a new generation gamepad, the developers could make the project even more vivid since the features of the main characters, effects, and elements of the surrounding world, thanks to the advanced vibration technology, make it possible to experience the characters’ journeys even deeper. The grapple and blaster are especially nice to use – they clearly worked the best.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
Back when the PS5 was first introduced, Sony advertised Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart as a prime example of a next-gen game. When the new product went to release, it became clear that in addition to gorgeous graphics, world detail, and the absence of loading screens, the developers also provided the gamer with full support for all the new DualSense chips. The implementation of adaptive triggers that respond to conditions in the virtual world, depending on the selected character, and a fairly understandable vibration that translates events from the game into the gamer’s hands. Proof that the next gene has arrived.

We can safely say that this project is the best demonstration of DualSense chips since Sony created the game specifically to reveal all the advantages of the new gamepad. In fact, all game mechanics are built on them – the player in Astro’s Playroom is literally led from point to point, talking about innovations and options for their use. Moreover, the game itself is also quite interesting and, in some places, unusual, and it is also given to PS5 owners for free, so you should definitely try to appreciate all the features that have appeared in the new generation controller.

The Wreckfest itself is rather unusual, as it doesn’t have any neon or hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of models – instead, it’s a harsh dirt road race with pits, potholes, and violent collisions. And with the new gamepad in hand, the race began to play even brighter – depending on the surfaces on which the car is driving, DualSense vibrates accordingly, literally transferring every pebble and pothole to the player’s hand. Moreover, the braking system is perfectly connected with the technology of tactile feedback and adaptive triggers, immersing the gamer in the virtual world of harsh races through mud, gravel, and sand.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2
The renewed legendary series of games about skate, dangerous stunts, and a sea of adrenaline really liked the audience with the atmosphere of comfort and the ability to do something amazing while sitting in front of the monitor screen. And the version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 for PS5, paired with a new gamepad, also has a full immersion effect – tactile feedback allows you to feel jumps better, falls. Even trite riding on different surfaces, Landings are transmitted differently, allowing even with closed eyes to understand what’s going on. Loyal fans looking to delve even deeper into the world of stunts will love this.

No man’s sky
No one even remembers what problems No Man’s Sky had at the start – if-then fans unloaded trucks of negative reviews on all available platforms, now the project about conquering space looks more than attractive. In addition, after the release of a special version of the game for the Japanese console of the new generation, No Man’s Sky sparkled with new colors due to the new vibration of the PS5 controller. Tactile feedback allows you to get completely new emotions from traveling around the planets, from flying in outer space, interacting with all kinds of fossils and tools. The game, of course, cannot be compared with real space, but it is still very worthy.

Rainbow six siege
Although this shooter is not the most popular project on the competitive market, the developers of Rainbow Six Siege very quickly implemented full support for the new gamepad, thereby delighting the owners of the PS5 console. For example, absolutely every weapon in the game, thanks to vibration and tactile recoil, feels different, which positively affects shooting emotions. Moreover, the tactile recoil also affects the recoil when firing – the larger the caliber in your barrel, the more the gamepad will vibrate when firing. And there is also support for effects, explosions, and more, so the fight will be much more interesting.

In the third numbered part of the iconic Borderlands series, the developers showed a simply insane arsenal of various weapons, which, with DualSense, reveal themselves from a new side. The fact is that each barrel (depending on the type – the variety of weapon options in the game is almost limitless) differs here due to tactile feedback – various options for pleasant vibration during shooting and accurate hits, a feeling of immersion when moving around locations, even triggers depending on they react differently depending on the type of weapon and scenarios of use—a great opportunity to experience all the vibrations of the new gamepad.

Surprisingly, in FIFA 21 soccer simulator, the tactile feedback and adaptive triggers are excellent, providing a much higher level of immersion in the gameplay. For example, if an athlete in a team is tired, then forcing him to run forward for the ball or some other purpose, the gamer will feel the whole weight thanks to the adaptation of the triggers – it will be trite to activate the running function. Also, the new vibration has shown itself worthy, which, depending on the situation, transfers all the sensations from collisions, blows, or passes into the player’s hands, thereby transferring it to the virtual field.

NBA 2K21 Mamba Forever Edition
In basketball, which is not surprising, collisions occur quite often – this is a contact sport where you cannot avoid a meeting with an opponent. And it is for this reason, the tactile feedback, which clearly demonstrates any collision on the floor, feels much more pleasant and realistic in the new gamepad. In addition, adaptive triggers in NBA 2K21 Mamba Forever Edition allow you to feel your athlete better, as his fatigue and accuracy of throws directly affect the movement of the virtual character, his ability to sprint and accurately throw around the ring.
