Introducing a handheld controller to Steam players, who are accustomed to the precision of a keyboard and mouse, presents a significant challenge. Valve is well aware of this hurdle, and since their initial reveal of the Steam Controller, there has been ongoing speculation about its accuracy.

In response, Valve has released a video demonstrating the controller’s performance across a variety of popular games.

The demonstration video effectively promotes the idea of integrating the controller with games that were not specifically tailored for it. The narrator emphasizes that the showcased games, including strategy and simulation genres, are compatible with the new accessory.

However, the gameplay in first-person shooters like Portal 2 and Counterstrike: Global Offensive may not satisfy those who swear by traditional keyboard and mouse setups. Despite this, the controller’s performance in the development stage is quite impressive.
