As we approach the February 25 release of Valve’s Steam Deck, more and more games have been tested and verified. Just over a month ago, only a small list of titles had been confirmed as compatible with the device. This left many wondering whether the Steam Deck’s compatibility would apply to their favorite games. Since then, the list has grown exponentially, and more titles have been added. And now, there’s an easier way of seeing which games will work on the Steam Deck.
Earlier today, Valve launched a page on Steam that shows you which games are compatible with the Steam Deck. The cool thing about this page is that it’s personalized to you. Once you log in to your Steam account, it’ll show you the games from your library and categorize them automatically. Each game is sorted into a Verified, Playable, Unsupported, and Untested category.
Check out your on-the-go library
For me, out of my 514 titles, 60 of them are verified and fully functional on the Steam Deck. The games here include titles like Dark Souls 3, Deathloop, Death Stranding, and Dying Light, to name a few. On one hand, that number isn’t necessarily huge, but it’s also joined by 43 games that are marked as playable, including titles like Dark Souls Remastered, Nier Replicant, and Grand Theft Auto 5. The murky waters of the unsupported section includes around 31 titles, with games like Half-Life Alyx and Blade & Sorcery listed. However, this list also includes games like Dead by Daylight and Fall Guys. At this point, there are still 392 games in my library that remain untested. So, there’s a lot of work to be done on Valve’s end regarding the Steam Deck’s line up of compatible games.
Valve will continue to add support for unsupported and untested titles as time goes on. It’s likely that we’ll see even more games receive the verified tag in the next few months, so continue to check back. This new page seems to be the best way to decide if the Steam Deck has particular value to you. After all, not having the ability to play your favorite games on the go defeats the purpose of the Steam Deck in the first place.
In other Steam Deck news, the company has partnered up with iFixit to become an authorized seller of replacement parts. So, keep that in mind if you’re particularly accident-prone.
