Steam Deck closing in on 2,000 games rated Verified or Playable

By - | Views: 9,996

Steam Deck is getting close to hitting a pretty big milestone, with nearly 2,000 games rated Verified or Playable. Considering it only released just over a month ago, it's a pretty sweet place to be for Valve's handheld.

Not without issues though, with some games not really having the correct rating which Valve now wants feedback on with their new system. Still, it seems like the vast majority are being given a rating that fits in well. Here's the latest numbers:

  • 999 - Verified
  • 913 - Playable
  • 930 - Unsupported

Some of the more recent games to receive a rating include: CARRION (Verified), We Happy Few (Verified), Aliens: Colonial Marines (Playable), Middle-earth™: Shadow of Mordor™ (Verified), Ni no Kuni Wrath of the White Witch™ Remastered (Verified), Tom Clancy's The Division (Playable), Stoneshard (Playable), Heavy Rain (Verified), Wolfenstein: The New Order (Verified), Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (Verified).

One that doesn't make sense is DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2, which got a Verified rating by Valve, even though online doesn't work due to Easy Anti-Cheat which the original developer has not turned on for Linux / Steam Deck. Good job they have that new feedback system huh?

It looks like Valve has made a small adjustment to the way games go through Deck Verified now too, with SteamDB noting a new field named "gamescope_frame_limiter_not_supported". This is possibly as a result of a bug I logged, as some games don't work at all with the frame limiter in the performance menu of the Steam Deck (usually OpenGL titles).

while i agree that games shouldnt be rated as verified if their online mode dont work, there are some games that i coudlnt care less about the online aspect of it, for those cases i wouldnt mind if they had 2 steam entries, one refering the multiplayer and other the single player, but i can see how that would be confusing for the end users and produce some issues trying to count the ammount of verified/playable games.

Is Valve pushing hard for Deck support via their internal channels?

Per game framerate limiting is better than doing it globally I've found as some games crash to a black screen when the FPS limiter is set through gamescope (saw that a bug report has been filled, thank you Liam).

As for games being verified that have anti-cheat which doesn't work on Proton, that's a mistake and will come back to bite Valve.

Might give We Happy Few another go after I removed it in anger.
