You need to have a gaming computer. Steam link is basically just a box that enables you to stream a game from your computer, to the tv, and manage the input devices, by my understanding. A raspberry pi is not going to be powerful enough to do that for most current games. Not sure about emulated ones, but I'd guess not.
Rob's post was concerning the software setup. Your issue is hardware.
