Valve has released a new feature that allows you to sign in to Steam Check if the number of games in your library runs on the new Steam Deck Handheld..I ended up Many In my time at this job, there are a large number of games of all kinds and eras, so running tests on them is how things are shaped prior to the release of the device. It may be a useful real-world indicator of.
As of today (February 24, 2022 in Australia), the Steam library has 810 suitable real games. It sounds like there are too many video games, but I’ve been doing this for 15 years and many companies and people send me games to check impressions and reviews, so over time everything is all It will increase. I didn’t bankrupt myself in the name of a grand strategy game or roguelike game.
Currently certified due to the number of games involved, as well as their variety (most of these are not games that I’m personally interested in, but games that I had to check professionally). I was interested in seeing how many games have been played, so I ran the tests and got some amazing results.
This is how the test shook. First, the game is 100% ready for Steam Deck. Of the 810 games in my library, only 59 are fully certified, NBA 2K22 To MGSV To Alien isolation To Yakuza: Like a dragon..I don’t know what Football Tactics Glory I think I’m doing it there and I’m blind when I try to play Desperado III With such a small screen, but I’m grateful that it works regardless.
Next is a game that “works on the Steam deck, but can require extra effort to operate and configure.” There are 66 in this category, many of which fall into the “I really need a monitor and mouse to play this” category (like Paradox games). Football manager With the series Cities Skylines), There were others who might have wanted the player to be ready by now, like Assassin’s Creed With the title Skyrim..
It finally takes us to a list of games that simply don’t work, and this is where I got my biggest surprise. I thought this would be a huge catalog of failures and dead ends, but in reality it was greeted with 23 games because of the fourth category of secret bonuses.
You see, they’re just games Confirmed Not working. Leave me 632 games that haven’t been tested, just there. Maybe they will work, maybe they won’t. I can’t even see those lists, so I have to work in the opposite direction through exclusions, but there are some recent big releases from EA in this category (FIFA 22, Battlefield 2042) And Microsoft (Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5).
Maybe they will work by the time of release (early adopters should get the unit in a week or two), maybe not! Wherever there is no official date, I’m sure those pioneers will test everything they own and share their results.
Keep in mind that this is not a permanent record, nor is it a critique of the service or platform. As Valve says, the number of compatible games has increased over time through both testing and updating, and previously desktop-only titles were handheld so that more users could share their playing experience. You can find out how it works.
Also, if you want to see the overall statistics, pleaseAt the time of posting, 1084 games have been officially tested, of which 399 have been validated, 327 are playable, but there are issues and 358 are not supported.
I thought this would serve as an example of the compatibility results people can expect when they first get the first wave of the unit.
