Over 11,000 games now rated Steam Deck Playable

By - | Views: 43,523

There's currently somewhere around 92,000 games on Steam and so it's going to take a long time for Valve to check them all on Steam Deck but here's some recent picks.

Currently there are 11,007 games rated Playable or Verified! With 7,254 Playable and 3,753 Verified, and also 3,296 Unsupported. So Valve are making pretty good progress on it, although it's not a perfect system there's a huge amount of games you can take with you on the go, or sat on your sofa.

Recently some pretty interesting games have been set as fully Verified including:

I'm now playing Warhammer 40k: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters on Steam Deck, it is marked as unsupported (because of graphics settings), but with little tweaking it's completely playable.

Hopefully we get a native Linux version of Bomb Rush Cyberfunk. Team Reptile has been great about making them, and all their other games on Steam have them. I bought it on Steam vs the Switch because of that reason.

Same goes with Blasphemous 2 as well. As the first game has a native Linux version.

I know Proton works great, and call me a stickler. But I'll always prefer native Linux support for games. I also like that native Apple Silicon versions of games are coming to Steam sometimes too.

Nah, I'm 100% with you as well! Not only was it native, but it was one of the last best remaining Linux native games out there. Hollow Knight I had to play on Proton, Dead Cells I had to play on Proton. Learning that Blasphemous 2 is not native was so disappointing...

In many ways, Linux gaming is moving back and forward at the same time.

Platinum on ProtonDB and Steam Deck Verified. Just sounds like you're missing out if you actually wanted to play it.

Only if you refuse to use Proton for whatever reason. Linux gaming is constantly moving forward thanks to it. The point is to play more games and Proton is a constant win.

Oh, I'm still gonna play it soon. Just was saying a native Linux version would be cool. I bought the deluxe edition too for the awesome soundtrack.

Can definitely recommend if you like developer Mimimi's previous real-time tactics games (Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, Desperadoes III), though I've been playing it on desktop rather than my Deck.

Nah man, I'm not missing out. These days, one has to check not only the ProtonDB rating of a game, but the latest reviews in the ProtonDB page, to see if something broke in the last patch. More relevant with newly released games, exactly like the one we're talking about. I only don't want to criticize specifically Games' Kitchen, because they have a really good history of little to no bugs.

Like I said, I already bit the bullet, already had to play Hollow Knight and Dead Cells on Proton, only Blasphemous 1 on native. I know what I'm "missing"...

...how many of them are shovelwares that don't deserve to be reviewed?

If the point was to play more games and nothing beyond, I would install Windows.

Obviously, there's something else, something more (or we wouldn't be here), and everybody is free to draw their line where it feels right for them.
