One of the many exciting new features of the PS5 is the ability to play games at 120 FPS (frames-per-second).

PS5 games with 120 FPS support Why should I want 120 FPS?
Playing a game at 120 FPS provides a smoother experience than at 30 FPS or even 60 FPS. Input latency is reduced, meaning your character and the world around you will react faster, while you might even see higher-quality animation detail that simply isn't visible at lower framerates.

Right now, one of the games confirmed to feature 120 FPS support is Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, which is one of the overall best PS5 games.
