Mostly Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3. Playing both the PC and PS4 versions. While I prefer the PC version, I play on PS4 whenever I want to play a game mode other than team beathmatch since the playbase on PC is significantly smaller.

I did beat Rise of The Tomb Raider last week. Great game, although the game had inconsistent performance issues (which apparently were fixed a few days ago).

Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty! I bought the collectors edition on day one YEARS ago, but my rig broke very quick. All these years later I log into battle.net and I was able to download it onto my laptop! Finally! I get to play it!

I have one since it commercially launched. I really like the controller in that you can use it to play PC games more easily in a home theater environment, and steam allows you to customize your game to whatever you want with any game on steam. It works great with adventure games, turn based strategy, RTS, or any traditionally Keyboard and mouse game (even if it doesn't have as much finesse as a KB&M).

I wouldn't replace your 360/ DS4 pad since it isn't as practical with many controller friendly games. 2D games and fighting games that rely on a D-pad are unpleasant (since it's left touchpad works better for scrolling/macro commands), and console-style action games that merely use the touchpad for camera controls feel cumbersome. Shooters, while can feel natural if you get through the high learning curve, almost always require precise calibration that not all games match, and rely on playing with the controllers motion control gyros (The touchpad isn't precise enough by itself).

Anyways, trying to get back into The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, after losing a save file with a fair bit of progress.

So you can use the steam controller on pretty much anything? Even games that are normally KB/M?

Essentially, anything that isn't over the number of buttons, touchpads mappings and gyros, you can play. There is a kb/M emulator in Steam big picture that allows you to map the steam controller to however you like. With games on steam, you can even download presets directly from the steam community so you don't need to customize the control scheme, and can change it in case the preset doesn't work well or not to your liking (which you'll likely want to do anyway). It can even be applied to non-steam games (although you'll need to figure out the controls of the games you want to use with the controller).

While you can get third party gamepad software for other controllers to do this. This is much simpler since you get what you need directly from steam, and you don't need to reactivate programs to use it when you want to. The controller has a learning curve, but I found it worth it since I can usually get it working how I would like it.

Interesting! I think I may actually invest in one. Sounds like a good purchase!
