Alongside its SSD and its 3D audio engine, the DualSense was one of the PS5’s most heavily marketed features in the lead-up to the console’s launch, with its adaptive triggers and haptic feedback promising greater immersion in games than ever before. Now, the PS5 is still extremely young – it’s not even a year old at this point – so it’s still too soon to say whether or not the DualSense has lived up to all that hype- but already, there’s been more than a few games that have made use of the controller’s unique features in some pretty interesting ways. Here, we’re going to talk about a few such games.

Control’s PS5 and Xbox Series X/S launch benefited the game in several ways – the game buckled often and hard on older hardware when it came out a couple years ago – and specifically on the PS5, its use of the DualSense features was a nice feather in its cap. More specifically, the adaptive triggers were were used to great effect, lending a lot of heft and punchiness to the firing of weapons, while the haptic feedback, though much more subtle, also contributed to the much more tactile feel of the experience.
