And just like that, April has come to a close, and Valve has revealed the top 20 most-played Steam Deck games of April 2024. There are some obvious ones here, like Stardew Valley and Balatro, still crushing it, and even Fallout 4 has made an appearance here, but some entries here shocked me more than I expected!

Here is the list:


Compared to last month's list, we have a solid amount of new and old games that have made an appearance here:

New Steam Deck Games Added:

  • Fallout 76
  • Fallout: New Vegas
  • Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition
  • Slay the Spire
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Games That Left:

  • Palworld
  • Last Epoch
  • Persona 3 Reload
  • Persona 5 Royal

With the Fallout TV show, I am not too shocked to see the four newest Fallout games appear here. I do believe Fallout 3 should be higher. It is my favorite game in the series, but I am happy it's there at all. I was more surprised to see the Persona games drop off the list. Persona 3 Reload and 5 Royal have been consistent staples on the list for awhile now, so seeing them disappear is a little jarring. Overall, this is a great list though, and it's awesome seeing Balatro still so high!
