Curious to see what everyone has been doing so far! For me probably unboxing it and immediately playing Miles Morales on it while experiencing the Haptic feedback for the first time.
Astro's playroom hands down. The music. The gameplay. Getting the plat. Every single aspect of the game was awesome.ID: h05lhkd
Such an unexpected treat. My face lit up the first time I used the vending machine. The dual sense just felt amazing.ID: h05nvtc
Playing it on release day of the PS5, collecting all the previous generation consoles and accessories, seeing all the references to previous PlayStation games, might have made it the best console launch for me so far, and I got an N64 and Mario 64 for Christmas when I was 7.
It was a nostalgia overload having played all those consoles and games myself growing up, the game itself is also top notch and so far the best uses of the DS yet. The best pack in game possibly ever.ID: h0507ml
Oh yeah definitely, Astro’s playroom was incredible. Such a great way to demonstrate what the dualsense is capable of!ID: h0529wi
Astro is my first platinumID: h069gbj

I couldn't believe the part when I had to blow into the controller, I wasn't expecting that.
Demons and MM were great... but honestly being able to play a bunch of ps4 games at 60fps has been the highlight for me so far.
Really enjoying Mass Effect atm.
Edit: every now and then I'm still blown away by 1-2 second loads on some games.ID: h05rps9
In fallout 4 I fast traveled from far harbor back to the commonwealth and then onto the prydwen in less than a minute. On my PS4 it probably would have taken at least 3-5 minutes. The speed is truly insane.
Booting the system up and jumping into Astro's Playroom. The DualSense functionality was wild to experience and all the PlayStation history hit me right in the nostalgia bone.ID: h051ipj
This is why I want one. I want to feel how good the DualSense is. Looking forward to Astro’s Playroom and Sackboy. Rachet and Clank looks to be amazing too.ID: h055ieg
Astro is awesome and I honestly hope they make a full fledged game with himID: h052ts7
Sackboy was a really enjoyable experience. The most impressive games with DualSense and Haptic Feedback for me were Astro’s Playroom, Returnal, Control, and even though it wasn’t great, Destruction AllStars. You really feel the car turning to shit as you receive damage.
Web swinging in Spider-Man/Miles Morales.
The gacha machine in Astrobot.
Sailing in Assassin's Creed Valhalla (I love some ass creed, not gonna lie and at 60 fps, its nice).
Hacking people to death in the Chivalry II beta.
Co-op with my family in Sackboy.
Returnal really kept me coming back and impressed with the adaptive trigger usage. I definitely back-to-back replayed RE8 for the trophies/challenges and had a blast.ID: h050kse
Gonna pick up RE8 in a couple days! Played RE7 about 2 months ago and i really thoroughly enjoyed that.ID: h051g77
Enjoy it! Definitely worth the play and the follow up to the story is great.ID: h052aye
I’m hoping it’s a PSVR2 release titleID: h05adyt
One could say that it kept you... Returnaling.
But yes. Returnal is my vote for the most impressive real-world integration of Dualsense functions and smooth 60 fps detailed graphics.
If you turn off the dualsense features, it genuinely feels like a less impressive game, which really speaks to the impact the controller can have on gameplay. Love the dual-stage trigger, the detailed and varied haptic effects, etc.ID: h05e91t
The rain impressed me the most, followed by being able to add an additional button to L2 using the adaptive triggers. Really felt something special.
I honestly can't even decide. The moment I first booted up Astro, right the way through to getting the platinum. Beating the raid in Ghost of Tsushima, after all my friends and I put off buying it until the PS5 launched. Same with The Last of us Part 2 after waiting for that 60fps patch. Disco Elysium. Playing Sackboy with the kids on Christmas morning. Nightly Wreckfest sessions with all my mates, every night since it came to PS+. Storming through the final 3 biomes on Returnal without losing a life. In fact ALL of Returnal. The haptics. The sensational 3D audio. Being a massive souls fan, seeing what Bluepoint managed to achieve with the exceptional Demon's Souls remake was a real treat. That's just off the top of head. I've had so many incredible gaming experiences in the first 6 months of it's life and I'm just so excited for what's to come. Next up R&C, Metro, Kena, Sifu, Little Devil Inside, Horizon, Stray, God of War, the list goes on.....ok I'll shut up now...I love my PS5
Experiencing ghost of Tsushima.ID: h05c9mk
Just platinumed Ghost last month. Such a dope game. I can’t wait to go for the New Game+ platinum on PS5.ID: h05vcun
Couldn’t agree more!! Played about 50% of the game on PS4 and when I played the other 50% on PS5, I was blown away all over again. Masterpiece of a game imo even if a bit repetitive at times.
Just got my PS5 last Thursday and the for me it feels like a true next gen upgrade. I also own a series x and while it’s fast I’m not blown away like I’ve been with my PS5. The dual sense is worth the hype and I enjoy the fresh new os for ps5. I’ve been playing Modern Warfare/Warzone, Tony Hawk pro skater 1 + 2, and Apex.ID: h05byj3
I can’t wait to play THPS 1 + 2 on PS5 with all of the next-gen upgrades. Playing it on my PS4 is hella nostalgic and it reminds me of when I used to play Underground 2 on my Xbox as a kid, but knowing that the PS5 plays the game way better and at higher settings turns me off from wanting to play it on my PS4 lol!ID: h05c9v4
So I’ll be honest I bought the game at launch on PS4 and even though I have a PS5 now, I have yet to spend the $10 to upgrade. I know $10 isn’t breaking the bank but I still enjoy the game and think it looks good even without the upgrades.
I really enjoyed control. Typically not a game I’d play but I was always wanting to play it until I beat it.ID: h050ine
It was smart of them to release it on PS plus with a free PS5 upgrade. 4K/60fps with all the dualsense capabilities enabled was just amazing.ID: h05c64z
So if you got Control Ultimate Edition through PS Plus it includes all of the next-gen PS5 upgrades? That’s how I got the game, but I heard differently on this subreddit.ID: h05xhqa
Same. I started Control with really no expectations at all and got sucked in pretty much after the 3rd-4th hour. The lore is a lot to take in initially but if you stick around, it gets such a tight narrative.
Astro’s Playroom hit me hard with the nostalgia. I heard before that the gameplay+haptic feedback were great, but I didn’t know that it’s basically an entire PS museum
Demon souls playthroughs with friends who never played the original. Many laughs.ID: h050mmg
Still need to play Demon Souls, gonna wait for the prices to drop a little since i haven’t played a souls game before.ID: h05ukxi
It’s on Sale currently - I cannot recommend this game enough
Astro's playroom is a highlight for me personally, discovering how the controller works and with how much care was put into that game, it was the perfect indroduction IMO, one which I had a lot of fun with.
Other than that, nothing really sticks out to me, it's been kind of a constant, average level of fun ever since I got it, although I expect GT7 and F1 2021 to change that for me personally :p
Had a blast with all these, especially Returnal :
Crash Bandicoot 4
The PS5 is my first Playstation console since the PS2, so I contemplated what I wanted to play first. Decided to start with Ghost of Tsushima and absolutely loved it! The fight mechanics are so smooth and the scenery is beautiful.
As a big playstation fan astro's playroom really struck a chord with me. Seeing the PS2 start up screen and accessories brought me back to my childhood. It also made me want to go out amd find a PS2. Miles Morales was pretty fun to it felt like a MCU film.
Tbh it's Astros.. I never liked platformers but this one was an exception
Console gaming at 60fps in general.
Whether it be Days Gone, Ghosts of Tsushima, Until Dawn, God of War, TLoU2, FF7 in about a week.. it's just night and day and performance will always be the biggest factor for me.
As a multiplatform gamer who has mostly leaned toward PC for multiplatform releases, this will now definitely make me consider and choose where to buy moreso than the last few decades have.
My consoles were typically just used for exclusives previously but I've already opted for things like P5Strikers and Yakuza like a Dragon here compared to steam, and there'll likely be many more to come as a result.
Playing Mass Effect trilogy for the umpteenth time, but finally in 4K 60fps on a 120 inch screen.
If it's not replaying God of War in 4k 60fps, it's experiencing the haptic feedback and sound from the controller from backstabbing enemies in Demon's Souls.
Both will get topped by playing Rift Apart in a few weeks.
That one time it looked like it was in my shopping cart for 3 seconds before it became unavailable again
Unboxing new hardware is always fun
Call of duty cold war, since I could play it with a friend of mine
Control probably. Couldn’t put it down. Platinumed with pleasure.
Returnal is number 2, but mostly because I didn’t have enough time to fully get into itID: h050fpc
Oh Control was amazing, i remember that one sniper rifle like weapon that made the R2 button insanely tough to push forward. That was really cool to experience.
