As you probably know, the Steam Deck It is very popular. Valve’s portable PC has quickly developed a large community around it and is the preferred way for many to play their favorite Steam games on the go. But What games exactly are these new Steam Deck owners playing? You’d think they were smaller, fast-paced games They are easy to pause, as is the case with most handheld and mobile games. Well, Valve has shared some details and it looks like many of you are enjoying playing Multiverse and The ring of Elden while on the toilet.
Not what you’d guess, huh?
Earlier today on Twitter, Valve’s official Steam Deck Twitter account released a list of the top ten games played on Steam Deck from the past week. Clarification valve in a follow-up tweet that the list is sorted by average daily user count.
- Vampire survivors game
- The ring of Elden
- Sky of Men
- Stardew Valley
- Grand Theft Auto V game
- Aperture Desk Job
- Game Monster Hunter Rise
As for the list, yes, the recently released free-to-play Smash Bros– like a fighting game, Multiverse, which is at the top. A little strange to see a fighting game at the top of the list, but it probably helped to be free. It is also possible that people have found interesting ways to play Multiverse and other games on this list thanks to the Steam Deck is funky but versatile controls. Let’s hope WB doesn’t kill this game along with everything else that has been canceled recently.
What’s also funny about this is that some people admit to playing Multiverse on the Deck makes his hands cramp, but the allure of having them on the go is too much.
No shock to see Lost at number three because the game is already popular, not very expensive, and it seems like the great game to play on the Steam Deck. Maybe play it on the porch at night with soft rain in the background. Beautiful. Also, no surprise look GTA v on the list because at this point it seems like half the world plays that game on some platform. So why not the Steam Deck?
Also, of course, Elden Ring— one of the biggest and most popular games in 2022– high on the list. Personally, I’m not sure I’d be able to enjoy it on Steam Deck, but I also don’t enjoy any FromSoftware games on any platform.
Hopefully Valve will release more details on Steam Deck games moving forward, maybe even a similar list of the 10 most played games on the portable computer for the entire year of 2022. Oh and also, maybe my Steam Deck ship soon? Thank you, Valve!
