The Steam Deck has been on the market for a few months now, but continues to eke out a niche existence, partly due to the continuing poor availability and the queue of unfulfilled pre-orders. However, it is not certain whether this will change with sufficient quantities of the handheld PC. Only the future can tell more. You can find out how the Steam Deck performs in the GameStar test here:

One piece of information in particular catches the eye: The company names the ten most played titles on the Steam Deck in the past month of May. And they reveal that at least one strategy regarding the handheld seems to be working. Here is the list:

The ten games have one thing in common: They all carry the award
Steam Deck verified. As a reminder: With the Steam Deck you can basically access all games in your Steam library. But by no means all of them can really be played, and many only with restrictions or only after you have made some adjustments manually. Valve has therefore come up with a kind of traffic light system that divides games into the following categories to show you directly what you can expect:
- Verified: The game runs smoothly on the Steam Deck, no adjustments are required.
- Playable: The game may require manual adjustments.
- Unsupported: The game is currently not working on the Steam deck.
- Unknown: The game has not yet been checked for compatibility with the Steam Deck.
So Valve’s traffic light system seems to be a great success and very popular with gamers.
