Valve's popular Linux-powered gaming handheld, the Steam Deck, has officially crossed over the 8,000 mark for games noted to be Playable or Verified.

Going by the list on SteamDB, which includes those titles no longer listed for sale on Steam but still playable if you own them the current count at time of writing is 8,003. Here's a breakdown by category:

  • Verified: 2980
  • Playable: 5023
  • Unsupported: 2571

I should note, that even plenty of Unsupported games do in fact work and those numbers only include what have been through Valve's formal Deck Verified system — you can still install and attempt to play anything you want.

Some notable games that recently became Playable or Verified include:

Additionally, Valve just recently revealed the top most played games on Steam Deck for February based on play-time and the list is:

  • Hogwarts Legacy
  • Vampire Survivors
  • Stardew Valley
  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition
  • Hades
  • Brotato
  • Persona 5 Royal
  • The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
  • Fallout 4
  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Valheim

  • Marvel's Midnight Suns
  • NBA 2K23
  • Project Zomboid

I'd bet there is a meaningful amount of "not supported" that do work... For example all the Nacom WRC series and V-Rally work on Linux but it needs a few quirks to set up the controller.. I'd bet there is thousands of games like that playable but needing a few quirks .

Man, I love so much that Brotato is on that list! All I seem to play these days is Soulstone Survivors.

I have Octopath and it runs super smooth and never breaks or bugs.

It's a good-looking game, one I'd probably buy if they ever remove Denuvo. But it's Sqeenix, so I doubt they will, even though there were some reports in the past that Square were moving away from Denuvo.
