Valve issued a video demonstrating its Steam Controller today. The game pad, which features two track pads in lieu of joysticks, is used for its series of Steam Machines, announced in September.

Looks good.

That's why I said I feel playing with a mouse is like cheating - there's just no challenge involved for me. L4D on expert on theXbox requires effort - on the PC, it's really just a point and click adventure.

I'm not saying one is better than the other - it's just that I like my games to be challenging, and mouse/keyboard suck all the challenge out of FPS games for me.

Let me throw in my two cents: I'd consider it fake difficulty to make a game hard by intentionally crippling the controls. If L4D becomes as easy as you say with proper controls even on expert (I don't know L4D, unfortunately), I'd say it has gameplay problems. I would prefer to adjust the game in that area to my liking, if possible.
