Another great milestone has been hit for the Steam Deck, with Valve's popular Linux-powered handheld now having 3,500 games rated as either Verified or Playable.
Back on June 7th it only just hit 3,200 so the rate continues at a nice steady pace. As a reminder though, Deck Verified is just the formal verification system. Plenty of games that haven't been tested work just fine, and some that are listed as Unsupported also work fine (or can do with one or two tweaks). You also have access to emulation and retro gaming, external launchers and much more. The Steam Deck is incredibly versatile.
The numbers right now at time of writing:
Some recently fully Verified games include:
- Neon White
- Divinity Original Sin 2
- Resident Evil
- Resident Evil 0
- Kingdom Two Crowns
Shown off in a recent highlights reel video:
Of course, who can also forget FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE? Which we had a dedicated article and video on. That was another massive boost to the Steam Deck.
Some of our other highlights and videos on the Steam Deck recently include Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, The Cycle: Frontier, Starship Troopers: Terran Command and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge.
Also don't forget if you miss your purchase email, you still have a few days to contact Steam support.

Would be cool if protondb was included somehow, we need Steam addons. Showing prices in sek is something i really want, and implement a protondb rating on every store page.
I dont know how they verify. But doing an automatisation would’t be that hard. Does the game start, does it play, when does it crash and if it crash make the user add a comment and collect the hardware, proton version and so on. This is basicly how proton db works.
Getting of topic here, great to see more titels anyway

Who wouldn’t love to play Elite Dangerous on their Steam Deck?

Last I heard ED was playable on deck. And no, it would not be my choice for a deck game.
🤣🤣🤣 Sorry, couldn't help myself.
3500 games with console-like experience. Many more with PC-like experience. It's incredible!
This is actually the first game I have ever run on Proton; all my other stuff is native (or, well, DOSBox in a couple of cases)

Quoting: PhiladelphusAs I continue to wait for my order email, I'm curious: have the ratings shifted to be more in line with peoples' expectations? I.e., Verified being more like ProtonDB's Platinum (stable, no problems, basically bug free), rather than "technically checks off all the boxes Valve laid out on the criteria page".
So far both the Verified and Playable for me have been equivalent to ProtonDB's Platinum.(Steams drop from Verified to Playable is if you have to use the touchscreen or on-screen keyboard to do anything, or it shows playstation/keyboard prompts instead of steam/xbox prompts). And Unsupported usually means launch it with proton-GE or check protonDB for a tweak(or find out on protonDB that there's no workaround and it's just EAC hell).
See more from me
