Valve has revealed what the most popular games were on Steam Deck for August 2022, so here's the list. Announced on Twitter, they have sorted it by hours played and it is once again full of unsurprising titles.
- Vampire Survivors
- Cult of the Lamb
- ELDEN RING
- Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered
- Stardew Valley
- No Man's Sky
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition
- MONSTER HUNTER RISE
