My ps4 controller won’t work in game but say I’m in the steam page it works just fine. When I try to play the games with a controller on my laptop it works too, it’s just on my shadow.

Thanks for doing that!  I'd recommend turning off the VPN to see if the controllers will work after doing so.

If doing so didn’t resolve the issue, I'd recommend you reach out to our support team for further troubleshooting assistance.  They’ll be able to help diagnose the issue.
