While there's been a few unofficial ways to check your own Steam Library for the Steam Deck, Valve has now put up the official way. Plus, we're getting closer to a thousand Playable titles now. Things are really heating up, with only two days left until the official release on February 25!

All you need to do is login with your Steam account and head to this page, which will give you an overview of what you can expect to work.

My own Steam Library has 2,113 that have yet to even be tested. Just keep in mind, untested doesn't mean they won't work. You'll be able to install anything and see for yourself at release.

In other news, as of publishing time there's 762 at either fully Verified or Playable (SteamDB).

  • 405 - Verified
  • 357 - Playable
  • 366 - Unsupported

Some recently Verified titles include Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Yooka-Laylee, ARK: Survival Evolved, NBA 2K21, Goat Simulator, Grapple Dog, Five Nights at Freddy's 2, Legend of Grimrock 2 and Death Road to Canada.

Unsupported? This has more sense than on spanish "No compatibles" (no compatible), as many of these games works on my linux, even some are native.

Maybe unsupported only means that you do not have any support from the publisher ?
I agree not compatible is terrible.
The problem is that in this list, you have both : not compatibles, and compatibles but unsupported.

If it was not support from the publisher, the list would be endless...

Unsupported reasons generally the following:

1. "Valve is still working on adding support for this game on Steam Deck" - When you see this it usually refers to Proton features being worked on. In most cases this refers to mfplat support. There's a good chance these will work eventually.

2. "This game's anti-cheat is not configured to support Steam Deck" - Not Valve's problem, fire ze missiles at the dev/publisher.

3. "This game is unsupported on Steam Deck due to use of an unsupported anti-cheat" - Don't expect these to work any time soon.

4. "Steam Deck does not support VR games" - I mean, you can in theory get VR working on the deck, but the experience will be terrible.

5. Games that fail to start at all. Tried to find an actual example of this, but gave up.

The games I have that I'm sure are working are:
https://www.protondb.com/app/429660 (Tales of Berseria)
https://www.protondb.com/app/464920 (Surviving mars)
The others I haven't tested yet.
"Valve is still working on adding support for this game on Steam Deck": Probably it doesn't work with the resume feature?
"This game's anti-cheat is not configured to support Steam Deck": No anti cheat.
"This game is unsupported on Steam Deck due to use of an unsupported anti-cheat": No anti cheat.
"Steam Deck does not support VR games": No vr
"Games that fail to start at all": It starts with proton or native. If it's the case, they screw it all.

I would agree, but why is Outlast, which I played through natively, appearing on my "unsupported" list?

"Unsupported" in the Steam page means that they have tested and it does not work.

From their page "Valve's testing indicates these games in your Steam Library currently don't function on Steam Deck. Valve is continuing to add support for more games over time."

This article could be clarified explain what "Unsupported" means.

Not so impressive at this moment

* 6 verified (3 old AF)
* 10 playable
* 2 not supported
* 45 unknown

It says they tested on Proton 7, so maybe they need to re-test on native. Could also be something like the game not supporting the Deck's weird aspect ratio.

It might be something quite simple, like the game not being usable with a controller out of the box?
