I've recently switched to Big Picture Mode in Steam because it works quite well while sat on the couch with a controller (although don't bother trying to search the store from it or you'll end up wanting to fucking hurt someone). I was just browsing my library of installed games for what to play having ditched Binary Domain* and I noticed that it flags up Tomb Raider Legend, Tomb Raider Anniversary and Arkham Asylum as "relying heavily on having a physical mouse and keyboard". I wondered what it was keying off of and a check of their relevant store pages does indeed have them all listed as only having partial controller support. Given that I played through all three of them on the Xbox the first time around how can they possible only have partial controller support? That's total nonsense.

*Gears of War style third person shooter by Sega of all people. It was alright but wasn't setting my world on fire and the bit I was at was annoying enough that I didn't really care to proceed with it. It had that Japanese thing where all the characters and dialogue are just slightly weird in an entertaining way but the gameplay was pretty bog standard.

I think it says that for games where some menus aren't mapped to the controller, and need you to use a mouse. Not sure if that's the case with those games or what.

I've found the PS4 pad pretty useful for instances like those recently, because you can use the touchpad to control the cursor. A bit fiddly, but less so than putting the controller down and grabbing a mouse. The only games it's been an issue for me in recently have been early access or similar, mind.

I don't remember using mouse or keyboard for any of those games, but maybe they are needed in the menus, like LewieP says.

They can only list them as full controller support if you don't have to touch a mouse or keyboard in any way.

For info the bit that killed it for me was where you were at a fuelling station and you had to wait for a robot to fill a fuel tank then drag it around the arena towards (I assume) a door that you wanted blow open. This was all done while a constant stream of robots were airdropped into the location so you had to fight them while also protecting/dragging the fuel tank around. Obviously the dragging of the fuel tank could only be done at a hilariously glacial pace and you couldn't shoot while doing it so within minutes of setting out you'd be near dead and the fucking robots would blow the tank up so you had to do the whole thing from scratch again. Except ever time round you've got less ammo because you couldn't replenish it from downed enemies quite as quickly as you needed to fire it into their stupid metal faces. After about the tenth shot at it I was more bored than annoyed but, thinking about it, it's like the perfect storm of horrible game design.

Haven't you just typed 'installed' into the search field there? Mine shows as empty if I do that even though I have loads of games installed.
