The Steam Spring Sale is now here, and there are a ton of amazing games that we can get to pad out our Steam Deck libraries. While we are working on our recommendation list, it seems Valve is putting together its own list to show off the top 100 games played on the Steam Deck in the past year!

When it comes to the Steam Deck Verified badge status of the games here, there are:

  • 73 Verified
  • 25 Playable
  • 2 Unsupported

(Thank you to Reddit user Mission-Cantaloupe37 for calculating this)

The list takes in the most played games from March 2023 to March 2024 and orders them based on the highest daily active player count, and Verified status doesn't matter one bit! The list includes some expected titles, like Baldur's Gate 3, Vampire Survivors, Cyberpunk 2077, and Elden Ring, but I was surprised to see Palworld so high up, considering it was released two months ago! Regardless, the list is awesome to see, and I highly recommend checking it out.
