June 14, 2023

With the recent official release of Cooler Master’s Motion 1 gaming chair, gamers around the world officially have the opportunity to take their gaming experience to the next level!


Powered by D-BOX haptic technology, Motion 1 allows users to be immersed in their games like never before thanks to a unique combination of movements, vibrations and textures created to be perfectly synchronized and as realistic as possible. With more than 65,000 unique haptic effects, D-BOX works in conjunction with the biggest gaming studios to process telemetry data straight from the game’s engine!

However, even though not all games have been coded by D-BOX, gamers everywhere can still experience any game they want with haptic feedback thanks to Adaptive Gaming Mode! Adaptive Gaming Mode is a software that sends feedback to your chair based on user input and controls, meaning that you can experience a haptic gaming experience composed of the same movements, and vibrations mentioned above for literally any game that exists.

To help you decide which immersive adventure to try first, we’ve compiled a list of the top 8 games to play with Adaptive Gaming Modeand 7 of them even have hand-crafted haptic profiles! Keep reading to see if your favourite is on the list.

1. Elite Dangerous

In Elite Dangerous, players embark on a solo, open-world adventure with nothing to their names other than a spaceship and a minute amount of currency. They must then do whatever they can to both survive and thrive in an ever-changing, every-man-for-themselves kind of galaxy!

When it comes to accumulating the skills and resources necessary to advance in the game, nothing is off the table—players can do seemingly innocent tasks such as trade with others and explore other planets, or they can partake in a more dangerous style of gameplay by participating in mass piracy and planned assassinations.

Elite Dangerous makes our list of the top 5 games to play with Adaptive Gaming mode primarily because of the haptic feedback associated with the weightlessness of space. Adaptive Feedback Mode allows you to feel your spaceships move and rotate in all directions and allows you to feel every moment of your life-or-death battles with feedback such as laser recoils and thruster boosts, which truly adds a virtual reality component to an already immersive gaming experience.
