Hi. I was going to create an article that lists PC games that natively support the Dualshock 4 controller. That is, games that don't require the use of a third party driver (like DS4Windows) and show the appropriate PlayStation button prompts in-game.

I think it would be a valuable article - it's currently quite difficult to find this information online - but I wanted to check here first to make sure it's not against any guidelines. The help article says "not every list is off-limits" but I wasn't sure what this applies to.

Last one I played was Trackmania Turbo. I was having a hell of a time trying to get it to work with DS4Windows until someone said to kill the DS4W process - Hey presto, full functionality and DS4 icons.

Think FarCry 4 had it as well, i distinctly remember it having the DS4 controller icons in game.

Edit: Just thought that maybe those icons maybe only showed up because i used InputMapper. It did have the correct button promts though.

Turns out the new Hitman has PS4 prompts and native support on PC (no external app required). I was pleasantly surprised.

Axiom Verge. Blew my mind. Forgot to run InputMapper and BOOM, all my button prompts were suddenly accurate. Wish this was more common.

The Witness does this as well.

Not that most English-speaking people would play it but Phantasy Star Online 2 does have support for DS4, with the option to change to any set of icons you want (keyboard, Xbox, PS).

Far Cry 4 is the only AAA game that I can think of, although for some reason that game feels weird to play with a PS4 controller for me. Seems fine with an Xbox One controller.

Shovel Knight and Axiom Verge also have native PS4 controller support.

PCGamingWiki has a decent list. I added a couple items, and none of the ones I've tried that were already on the list were inaccurate.
