    Best Steam games with controller

    Hey, I am setting up a HTPC on which I plan to use Steam Home Streaming to play some games in my lounge from my PC upstairs. I have a Xbox one controller and just looking for some suggestions of decent games that have controller support. Mostly single player, fps or rpg would be good.
