Valve has now certified 5,000 games as Steam Deck compatible

wants to help owners and people interested in finding out what games can actually run on the device in a simple way. Through its, it hopes to show people at a glance whether a game is compatible. While testing every game will be a long process (assuming it goes that far), Valve just hit an important milestone. The company now has 5,000 games verified or certified playable on Steam Deck.

When Valve gives a game a Verified label, the Steam Deck should be able to handle it with little, if any, hiccups. Should Valve determine that a title is playable, it will work, but there might be a few caveats or issues. On the other hand, according to SteamDB, Valve has nearly 2,000 games listed as unsupported, meaning they probably (or definitely) won’t work on Steam Deck.

These numbers suggest that Valve tested at least 7,000 Steam games on the system. However, it goes a long way to reviewing them all as there are well over 50,000 titles on the platform. It’s worth noting that many of the games currently marked as “Unknown” will work fine on Steam Deck even without a “Verified” or “Playable” sticker.

Valve uses four criteria to check Steam Deck compatibility. It evaluates whether a game has controller support (and on-screen keyboard if needed) or compatibility warnings. It also looks for support for the screen’s native resolution of 1,280 x 800 and whether the game has issues with the Proton compatibility layer that Valve uses to run Windows games.

There’s now a massive collection of games that work on Steam Deck, more than most people can possibly play in a lifetime – you might have a shot at getting through them if you can break away from it Vampire Survivor long enough. This should be further good news for those who have been waiting for a Steam Deck delivery for the past few months after Valve. If you reserve one now, you should still be able to get a Steam deck.

Meanwhile, Valve announced the top 10 most played games on Steam Deck for August. The list contains elden ring, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, MultiVersus and yes, Vampire Survivor.
