what games are compatible with the machine?

Valve finally gives us an answer to this question, with a first list of games optimized, compatible and not compatible with the Steam Deck.

For the Steam Deck, the hybrid PC made by Valve, it’s almost time for the first deliveries and therefore the first tests. In the meantime, it is the company that takes over the role of tester, in order to verify the optimization of the games displayed in the Steam catalog on the machine. A tedious process, which has already given its first results. Valve shares three lists with us, including the most optimized titles for the Steam Deck, playable titles and non-compatible titles.

Fortunately, the list of incompatible games is the shortest of the three, with only 5 titles… for the moment. Because yes, Valve intends to review its entire catalog in order to note the optimization on Steam Deck in terms of criteria concerning playability with controllers, touch controls, and many other parameters.

A negligible loss, and always correctable

Moreover, here is the list of games that you can play without moderation on the machine in portable mode, or in television mode. On the program, there are a lot of games that will reach out to you immediately after receiving your console. Note that many more titles will be checked in the coming weeks, so Valve should update its list shortly. Fingers crossed that there are as many success rates at this level (93% of games are compatible with the machine).
