Steam Deck hits over 9,000 games rated Verified and Playable

By - | Views: 32,229

Another juicy milestone for Valve with the Steam Deck, as it now has over 9,000 games rated as either Verified or Playable.

Going by the list on SteamDB, which also takes into account those titles that have been removed for sale, which players can still download if they own the games the current status is:

  • Verified - 3,276
  • Playable - 5,750
  • Unsupported - 2,879

Keeping in mind, these are only those that have been through Valve's Deck Verified certification, there's plenty more that do work out of the box with no changes needed. Over time the numbers will naturally just keep rising, especially with upgrades to the Proton compatibility layer along with some more Native Linux releases.

It's also worth remembering that Deck Verified isn't perfect, there will be some games that are Verified that shouldn't be, and same again for Unsupported - some of them work and some don't. We really don't know how Valve actually test, as they've been a bit tight-lipped on it.

According to Valve this is the criteria for being Verified:

  • Input - The title should have full controller support, use appropriate controller input icons, and automatically bring up the on-screen keyboard when needed.

  • Display - The game should support the default resolution of Steam Deck (1280x800 or 1280x720), have good default settings, and text should be legible.

  • Seamlessness - The title shouldn’t display any compatibility warnings, and if there’s a launcher it should be navigable with a controller.

  • System Support - If running through Proton, the game and all its middleware should be supported by Proton. This includes anti-cheat support.
