    Steam now supports classic Nintendo controllers



    Playing Steam games with a classic Nintendo controller is easier than ever with a client update that adds retro controllers to the Steam Input support list. Switch compatible versions of NES, SNES, Nintendo 64 and Sega Mega Drive gamepads, they should now work well with your gaming PC. You can also connect them to the Steam Deck using a docking station or a USB-C adapter.

    It’s worth noting that you can use retro gamepads on PC without Steam Input support. Official Valve support means the process should be Plug and Play and you don’t have to download any additional button mapping software.

    Classic layouts often feature fewer buttons than the best current PC controller options, so you’re better off sticking with traditional platform games rather than trying to play an MMORPG with an NES pad. However, there are many modern games that should play well with classic Nintendo controllers too.
