Steam reveals most controller compatible games –
While many PC gamers can use a mouse and keyboard to move around, especially when it comes to FPS games, there are still those who want to play on PC but also want to use a controller of some description, and now Steam has revealed some lists to help these players.
We say “some” because there are actually four lists, for the DualShock; Xbox; To smoke; and Switch Pro controllers. In each of these lists, Valve highlights the games that users of that controller have preferred over the others, as well as those with multiple controllers used for local multiplayer, not to mention of course the most popular games in general.
Along with DualShock controllers, Dark Souls III and Dark Souls Remastered feature in the rosters, alongside similar titles like The Witcher 3, Nioh, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Skyrim and Fallout 4 are also offered, along with fighting games like Dragon Ball FighterZ and Soul Calibur 6.
As for the Xbox, we can see Assassin’s Creed Origins and Middle-earth: Shadow of War, as well as Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age. Ark: Survival Evolved, No Man’s Sky, and Kingdom Come: Deliverance all help to complete a very eclectic mix for Xbox controller users.
When it comes to the Steam controller, all three Dark Souls games are showing their faces again in this list (alongside Shadow of War as well), but we can also see different games like Final Fantasy XV, Overcooked 2, and Borderlands 2.
Finally, looking at the Switch Pro Controller Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom are presented, and it might surprise you to see Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain there too. Overcooked 2 and Stardew Valley could be a little less surprising, however, given their prevalence on the Switch.
That’s not all, as Valve also adds that those who can learn to use a dance pad on PC should also try Crypt of the NecroDancer or The Metronomicon … apparently.
What games do you play and with which controller?
