Interesting spread, I would say those open world sort of games aren't really suited for a handheld, but quest systems offer a perfect way to break up the content, and the Deck's smooth hibernation allows you to just get back into questing whenever you have a free minute. Playing a game throughout the day rather than in far apart chunks probably also makes it easier to follow the larger plot.

I imagine persona 5 royal would be perfect to take on the go, considering how long it is. That's probably how I'm going to replay persona 5.

None of these are games I play but definitely a few of these are games I'm interested in.
However it's going to have to wait. I decided that, with the money I spent on the Deck, I'm going to use it to play through my backlog a bit...
But if I ever catch Elden Ring on sale, I don't think I'll be able to resist.

It seems that my choices are not on the list :-D But it's not surprising when I'm just playing games I have in my library and never really played them before. Steam Deck is really awesome for that, I feel like I'm rediscovering the gaming world again. :-)
