Default [Q] How do i use the controller for any PC game?

The question here is this. I can launch steam with my shield. Awesome! but i have noticed some game like Blocks that matter, for example, will not see the shields controls. Is there anyway to get this to work? I do enjoy indie games from steam but at the same time i wanna play them on my shield when im in bed relaxing or in the living room.
R.I.P Nexus 4. May the phone gods show you a new way.

If the game doesn't have native xbox 360 controller support it can get a bit tricky.

Here are the instructions:

xpadder can now read the shields inputs for any game as well and is a bit easier:

I believe it only works with the beta version of xpadder, I have not tried it personally but it's got to be an easier route than the first option.
