Steam Deck — but can it run Crysis Remastered? Yes

By - | Views: 12,079

You all likely know the meme that Crysis became by now. It used to bring PCs to a halt and make GPUs cry. How about the Steam Deck though? Can it run the newest version with Crysis Remastered? Yes.

I'm not one to bury the lede and I'll answer that question properly with a video on Medium details:

This is actually amazing. I remember playing the original back before I was a full Linux user, and it really didn't work well on my PC at the time. However, it was such a great game overall to run around in. Now you get to experience the latest generation of it on a Linux handheld?! Simply magic. In total shock at how smooth the performance felt on the Steam Deck.

Note: you can see more videos on the GOL YouTube Channel, as I'm not going to announce them all individually in articles. I'll be doing an overview of all my coverage later in the week to help people keep up with it all.

Come on, man, even the Nintendo Switch can run Crysis these days. It would be pretty sad if the Deck couldn't.

Lighten up, man, it's a fun poke at the old meme.

It's also not really the same game from a graphics perspective. According to Digital Foundry they built a very cut down version that is missing a lot to make it runnable. The Steam Deck seems to be allowing the full experience.

Yes, I realized you were being humorous, as was I. I am often told I have a dry sense of humor, but I don't think that's true. I think "parched" is a more accurate description.

Can you please test out ARMA3, Mount and Blade Warband, Barony, 7 Days to Die and Ground Branch if possible? It's the games I play the most I'm curious
