Description

Valve has done it again. After revolutionizing pc gaming with steam and even making a sous-vide machine. It’s now starting to take the comfort and ease of consoles and taking it to the pc. On November 10th they launched the brand new Steam controller. There have been a lot of controllers for the pc but this one throws all the conventions out of the window. They are introducing a touchpad into the controller. Two of them to be exact. Together with the regular thumb stick, 4 buttons and a trigger. They even added two more triggers to the back where you are holding the controller.

  • Finding out what suits best for you might take some time though. There are a lot of options and possible setups. So looking at all of them might take some time. It also takes some time to get used to. Always playing with keyboard and mouse then going for a controller is a big step that might influence how well you can play the game for a while.

    Can the steam controller really change the way you play games? In my opinion it will never take over the keyboard and mouse. The accuracy and options are just too great to give up for most games. But I can see it making some types of games way more fun like racing games or arcade style games like Binding of Isaac whose gameplay suits the use of a controller. It also gives the ability to make gaming more social. You can now easily game in the living room on the couch and interact with the people around you. Same goes for the split screen options which brings back a lot of nostalgia for me.

    I feel like the steam controller is a great step towards taking the ease and comfort of consoles to the PC realm without giving up on a lot of accuracy and possibilities of the mouse and keyboard. The price isn’t to high but the delivery might take a while. If you are ready for something new for your pc or looking for something that might make gaming for accessible for you, this controller might be for you!
