Watch: Hands-on with the Steam controller

All thumbs.

Two shiny new Steam controllers arrived in the Eurogamer office today, which was exciting. Then it was confusing, then amusing, then vaguely disappointing, then exciting again, then... well, to be honest I'm not sure exactly how I feel about the Steam controller at the minute. It shows definite promise, but it's also got the unenviable task of fighting how my brain is wired to operate after years of gaming with a keyboard and mouse.

Chris and I both tried a few games to see how well the Steam controller works out of the box; if hearing two grown men say the word 'interesting' a lot is your thing, please watch the video below. You won't be disappointed.
