Support was added back in May
Valve slowly ramped up support for more controllers on Steam, a good move intended to sway console folks over to PC. One of 2018’s biggest highlights was the addition of Switch Pro Controller support in May, most notably due to the massive success of the Switch and the pure quality of the new Pro Controller in general.
Now Valve has shared a list of the most-played games, and while many of them are obvious Switch ports in the top spots, a few, like No Man’s Sky taking the top honors, are surprising. Following No Man’s Sky we have Overcooked 2, Metal Gear Solid V, Dark Souls Remastered, NBA 2K19, Tohou Gensou Wanderer Reloaded, Mega Man 11, Call of Cthulhu and Disgaea 5 Complete. You can view the entire list here.
Valve also published a more intriguing list, which they say entails games that are played with Switch Pro Controllers “more than any other type.” That complete list includes Timespinner, Dragon Quest XI, A Hat in Time, La Mulana, The Messenger, Brawlout, Rivals of Aether, Steven Universe: Save the Light, Mega Man 11, Monster Hunter: World, Groove Coaster, Slap City, Lethal League Blaze, My Hero’s One Justice, and Cross Code. There’s also a “most played with more than one controller” list which is mostly comprised of fighting games like Tekken 7, Soulcalibur VI and many of the aforementioned titles.
Yeah, so data like Dragon Quest XI hosting the Pro Controller more than any other remote when the port is still “TBA 2019” is very telling. A lot of these users are clearly more hungry for Switch ports.
