Here's another wonderful selection of games to add to your Steam Deck, after looking over what has been recently Steam Deck Verified steam deck verified to give you hopefully the best experience. It's been a little while since the last one too, so maybe you've missed something great.

Each will list the ProtonDB rating or if they have a Native Linux version for players who wish to know.

Since they're Steam Deck Verified they should be download and play, with no fussing. Although that's not always the case, it's the official rating system from Valve.

"Blast, slice and shred through your enemies in this hardcore FPS inspired by the icons of the '90s, powered by the legendary Quake-1 Tech. Taking place in a realm left to rot, take up arms, unearth long-forgotten secrets and hunt down the Guardians of the Old World."

I will also give a potentially honourable shout out to Fallout 4, which is getting an update on April 25th that Bethesda say will bump it up to Steam Deck Verified. But that remains to be seen. You can also grab that in the current Fanatical Fallout Bundle.

So there's a good few more picks to get you going!

I finally got Star Renegades, it's been on my wish list for years. I'm glad I did, its awesome. There's a lot of strategy involved in battle, and any mistake is costly, even deadly. Against some enemies, each round of battle feels like a puzzle where you have to find the optimal solution. I love it.
big ups to Pepper Grinder. runs butter smooth and is an incrediBle joy to play! amazing platforming flow, crunchy sound fx, sick music, delightful visual style. pick it up!
