There are no PSP games that have built in vibration, since there are no psp systems that could vibrate. Basically there are no signals for PPSSPP to know when to vibrate, like if you were playing the PSP castlevania or Ace Combat X the psp wouldn't know to send out a vibration signal when your character got hit or when you were hit by a missile.

@pogilang25 yeah ppsspp can't do that aside from haptic feedback when pressing touchscreen controls on mobiles. However technically it's not impossible for a true force feedback system, I would say it's more than doable to hack games to return information needed for such feature via cwcheats and maybe some custom syscall or custom cwcheat code type whatever would be simpler/better.

I have no clue how much effort it would take implementing FF feature ppsspp side, but from my experience - the hacks itself would be very simple as most of the feedback would be based on things that can be seen or easily found/calculated like hit detection, % of hp lost, speed, jump distance etc limited pretty much only by imagination and also very safe since games would have to be patched just to return some information without messing with their mechanics(comparing to things like 60fps patches which affect everything, often breaking things:|).

Personally I disable vibrations in games natively supporting it, so yeah not exactly my kind of thing, just giving the idea as this feels like something which community could easily create at least assuming there are more people interested in making it happen or you would do all the work yourself;p.

It's always good to remember that PPSSPP is an emulator and never will be a PSP, this unfortunately leaves some things potentially inferior to the real hardware especially among very nostalgic people, however it also allows us to be very creative in enhancing our experience without silly limitations real hardware had, just need to put some work into it.
