I thought the PS5 DualSense controller was a gimmick – until I played this game

It’s no secret that I don’t like the PS5 DualSense controller. Compared to the beautifully simple Xbox Series X controller, the DualSense has a lot of wasted space, some questionable button placements, and a few strange connectivity limitations. The biggest deal breaker for me, however, was that I found the innovative haptics more distracting than compelling. Or at least I did, until I reached the last level of Demon’s Souls.

For those who haven’t played it yet Demon’s Souls is easily the best game on the PS5, and possibly the best game I’ve played all year. (Granted, it was also one of the best games of the year when it first came out in 2009, but I digress.) Like the PS5’s other exclusive launch titles, Demon’s Souls makes extensive use of the subtle haptic feedback from the DualSense.
