    Love my steam controller. Its amazing once you learn how to use it. Doom have a layout from id software’s on the controller that makes the game feel like it was designed for the controller.

    I have not tried many fps games with the Steam controller but basically all other games (non steam games also) apart from Fifa i only use the steam controller. It’s really well made.
