​Watch The Steam Controller Play A Bunch Of PC Games

Valve's interesting, innovative new Steam Controller has caught a lot of eyes while simultaneously raising a lot of eyebrows. How exactly will this thing work? Will it really make traditionally mouse & keyboard PC games playable in your living room?


We've seen the Steam Controller in action before, but I still have some questions about how it'll run some of my favorite games. Fortunately Chris from the YouTube channel Trial By Game has got one of Valve's prototype Steam Boxes, and he's been putting it through its paces and documenting the results. After watching these videos, I feel like I've got a much better sense of the controller and how it works.

He's also done some videos showcasing the settings for the controller, and demonstrating how those work.

Sensitivity and Sensitivity Options:

There are many more videos over at Trial By Game's YouTube channel. What do you guys think: Ready to give this thing a shot for mouse & keyboard games, or will you just stick with what works?
