Here's the short version: I'd like some help figuring out what the most common inputs are in PC games that don't have controller support. We're talking strategy games, adventure games, weird little indies, and the like. I mostly play on console, so this is a bit of a mystery to me!
Here's the long version: I have a gaming PC that I almost never use. In part, this is because I don't like mouse and keyboard controls, and I don't like sitting at a desk. After a full day working on computers in my job, I don't have much interest (and, increasingly, my hands don't have much interest) in sitting at a desk on a computer for fun.
So I've hooked up my gaming PC to my television with an Xbox One controller for the games that support one. This works great! But it also limits me to games that have built-in controller support, and there's a rich library of new releases on PC that don't.
To get around in the OS to open games and launchers, I've been using a Steam controller mapped through reWASD (great piece of software, by the way). I have the right pad mapped to the mouse and the triggers mapped to left and right click, and that's good enough to get me where I need to go.
But it could be more! There are about 24 easily accessible inputs on the Steam controller (more with some extra customization). If I mapped the most common PC gaming inputs to those controller inputs, I could have a somewhat universal layout that could give me easier access to those games that don't use controllers. I just don't know what those inputs are. I hope you all can help me.
I should say that I'm not especially interested in discussing the relative merits of controllers, nor am I trying to find a lap tray or other solution for having a mouse and keyboard on my couch. Let me make my bad choices!
