On starting Dark souls 3 (steam/win11/razer blade 17) only the mouse and keyboard would work despite having an xbox series controller wirelessly connected. The xbox button prompts were there but the controller did nothing.

I was able to fix this by:

Going to Big picture mode > settings (cog icon) > controller settings > untick all except "guide button focuses steam"

Start the game and it works flawlessly.


Just adding this for good measure: Settings were as described by the other solution, but for me it made a difference on what USB port I was using (all usb3)
