If you have steam, big picture mode has controller support built in, and can fully use the ps4 controller nativly.

install DS4Windows. It makes the PC think your DS4 is an XBOX pad and everything just sort of works from there.

Then if you want to, you can get into some fairly deep customisation.

I found input mapper better, but I imagine DS4 windows should work too. If its a steam game I use what's in big picture mode. If its an Xbox game I use input mapper.

This is the best option. DS4Windows has been dodgy in my experience, but apparently it has (or had) issues with the new model DS4s that come with the PS4 Pro. Using Steam's controller support via Big Picture Mode has been flawless for me, and the extra customization options are nice to have.

You should be able to run Origin games through Steam, which will then deliver the same controller support you would get with a native Steam game.

Can someone explain how to run origin games through steam? and how to get big picture mode. Mostly looking to use it for mass effect series?

Open Steam, then go to "Games" on the top menu bar, then choose "Add a Non-Steam Game to my Library." That'll open a list of programs that you can add. If the game you want isn't in the list, you can click the "Browse" button to got to and add the game's .exe that way.

You don't actually need to be in Big Picture Mode to use a DS4, though you might need it to set one up the first time. Click on the gamepad icon next to the "minimize," "maximize," and "close" buttons in the upper-right corner to open B.P.M., then click on the gear icon to open the settings. Go to "Controller Settings" and enable "PS4 Configuration Support." Now a new option will appear in your games' library pages that allows you to choose how the controller will act in each game. I personally just use the "Gamepad" template so it acts like a 360 controller, but some games will have a specialized setup provided by the devs/community that you can use if it's a steam game.
