Image of the Valve Steam Deck

The Steam Deck just launched this year and has quickly grown to have a robust list of verified games. The handheld platform has grown from 100 verified games to over 600+ in just the span of two months and is being updated daily.

The steam deck is a great way to take pc gaming on the go, giving players access to all the titles in the Steam marketplace. Unfortunately, not all games are created equal when it comes to ease of use on the Steam Deck. A large sum of the game titles on Steam do not have all of the graphics and control options required to have a pleasant gaming experience on a portable device. So, Valve has come up with a system to ‘verify’ which games officially work on Steam Deck with no issues.

The ‘Steam Deck verified’ list includes all game titles that meet the following criteria:

  1. Accessible when using the default controller configuration.
  2. Shows Steam Deck controller icons.
  3. In-game interface text is easily readable on Steam Deck.
  4. This game’s default graphics perform well on Steam Deck.

Since a complete list has not yet been released by Steam, we’ve put together our own searchable and filterable list of the most recent verified and playable games available on the Steam Deck for those wondering if the steam deck is worth purchasing or, just looking to purchase a new game for your handheld.

Here is the list of verified games:

The list of verified games is constantly growing to include more of the titles we love, so there is always something new to explore. We will continue to update this list periodically to ensure it’s the most up-to-date with the Steam library. For more search options try steamDB
