Verified Steam Deck Playable List Passes 100 Games
The Steam Deck verified list currently includes over a hundred fully playable games, including popular ones like Nier Replicant, Life is Strange 2, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. With just a month to go until the Steam Deck release date, the list is really expanding – although there are still a few major games inactive, including Persona 4 Golden.
Earlier this month, Valve started putting up compatibility categories for Steam games to indicate if they would work with the Steam Deck. While Valve is confident that the majority of PC games will work with the Steam Deck in the first place, they still have a team playing furiously through the games to verify them officially.
While the list isn’t officially available yet, Reddit user ayyvery42 or Boiling Steam has their own listing that shows the Steam Deck currently has over a hundred games that are fully verified or playable – meaning, runs perfectly fine but there may not be touch screen support in some places – and only a few not supported.
New titles added to the list this weekend include Nier Replicant – some text input is needed from time to time – and Sam & Max Save The World, fully verified. In terms of unsupported games, there are currently five listed, and most of them are VR games – so Persona 4 Golden is the only game tested so far that doesn’t work on the Steam Deck. However, there are other workarounds, including just installing Windows on the handheld.
As to why it seems that only a handful of Steam’s thousands of games have been tested despite compatibility concerns that have persisted for months, all of these titles are is being thoroughly worked on on the Steam Deck – it could obviously take some time. Hopefully the list will expand significantly as we approach the Steam Deck release next month.
