I love the dualshock one, so it is very sad to pop in a game and find out it doesnt support the ds1. I could not find a list anywhere that listed which games work with ds1 controllers so figured I should start one. I will post up which games I have personally tested with the dualshock 1 and will also list which games I have confirmed that do not support dualshock 1. A few games in here were already tested by lordnikon and I do not own them, but I trust him lol.

I do not have the time to pull out every game and test this, so I will just test games as I start playing them. However, you guys can contribute to the list too. Just post in the thread what your findings are, and I will update this first post in the thread to add your contributions.

Only post if you are sure it works or does not. Do not post if you are trying to remember from like 3 years ago lol. It would be nice if this list was accurate.

I will keep the games listed in alphabetical order to make them easier to locate once this list grows.

*edit* 8/18/09
Also, I realized that eventually all the sports games might clog up this list. So I may put them in a separate list down the road if that happens.

Never assume one game works without personally testing it.

For instance, Taito Legends 2 has DS1 support. Taito Legends 1 however, does not support the Dual Shock 1, which is flat out crazy since virtually all arcade games should have Digital (non-analog) support so they can be played with arcade sticks. If I didn't own Taito Legends 1 and had personally tested it, I never would have thought it to be a DS2 only game.

So coming out of this conversation, 2 more to add to the list are:

  • Taito Legends (no)
  • Taito Legends 2 (yes)

I will have a much larger list coming in the near future considering how many games I own.

Yea hehe, I did not add atv offroad fury 1 because I know developers can be unpredictable with stuff like this.

ok...

when using a DS1 in the game "The Warriors", when trying to execute a warchief command, it is kind of a pain to select the X-Axis + commands

hmmm!

THere are six commands to choose from and you use your left analog stick to move the cursor. When you try picking the bottom row commands it's a real pain but also a pain to describe!

here is a crap diagram of the commands
123
456

when you try to select command 5, it jumps to command 4! When on command 4, if you try to move to command 5 again it just jumps staright to command 6!
you have to concentrate to a degree so high that you just get random strains from doing it until you finally get to choose command 5!


with that said, DS1 compatibility for "The Warriors" equals none

Yay, frequency works with the ds1. At first my controller wasn't working, but I checked the connection and it was loose and worked once I pushed it in more. Yay for non squishy dualshock 1 buttons!

quake 3 revolution works, as does the first ratchet and clank. the first fatal frame doesn't work with ds1, all you can do is walk forwards and none of the face buttons work.
