I bought a Steam controller the last time it was on sale... it's not bad. Personally, I can't use a controller for shit compared to KB+Mouse, but that's just decades of experience with KB+M vs these new style controllers.

I don't know that I'd ever bother to put the time into a controller with any FPS though, seems like a waste of effort for me at least. Still, good opportunity to pick up DOOM and a controller for those who have neither.

It's really a good idea to package this with DOOM though.. as strange as that sounds. Nobody really plays it for the multiplayer, so using a different control device to sit comfortably on your couch and play is a lot more appealing because you don't have to be competitive against other mouse users like you would in multiplayer. Also the difficulty isn't very high so that helps with not having to be laser accurate either.

Most people own an Xbox or PS4 controller already for that. I don't own a console newer than PS2 and even I have an Xbone controller to use with my PC.

Steam's obsession with consolitis is a strange one.

It's not really. Console game sales are a huge market, and Steam sees them rightly as huge competitors. And more and more PC gaming is moving into the living room as streaming devices become more ubiquitous (Steam sells those, btw).
Yea, but the Steam controller is REALLY bad for playing games where you have to turn fast - the right touchpad sucks for that.
