I’ve no concept what number of Steam Decks Valve have bought, however cor: it certain appears to be a hit when it comes to the variety of video games persons are having fun with on it.
Yesterday, the official Steam Deck Twitter account shared an inventory of essentially the most performed video games on the hand held PC gaming machine in September. The record consists of Vampire Survivors, Elden Ring, Stardew Valley, Cyberpunk 2077, Hades and No Man’s Sky.
Here’s the complete, ordered record in Valve’s tweet:

It is barely simply that Vampire Survivors is on the prime of the record. It’s an excellent, compulsive arcade recreation when performed on desktop, but it surely’s additionally light-weight and snackable in a means that makes it good for a handheld machine.
I’m extra shocked by the blockbusters persons are taking part in on Deck, together with Elden Ring, Cyberpunk 2077 and Spider-Man Remastered. The Steam Deck has the juice to play these video games, albeit at decreased framerates and with a brief battery life, however a handheld is not their pure dwelling. Of course, perhaps that is the attraction; it’s undoubtedly cool that you just now can play these video games on a handheld.
Unlike a lot of my colleagues, I haven’t got a Steam Deck. I made a decision I used to be unlikely to wish a conveyable PC gaming machine since I by no means go anyplace aside from my sofa. And but, on an nearly weekly foundation I see or play a recreation and suppose: this may be higher if I may play it on my sofa as a substitute of at my horrible work desk. I caved and reserved one final week.
