Are your PC games playable on Valve's Steam Deck handheld?

Thanks to a new tool from Valve, PC gamers can now check to see which of their Steam games are compatible with the company's upcoming Steam Deck PC handheld. 

Valve's Steam Deck system uses a Linux distribution called SteamOS as its operating system, not Windows. This means that Windows PC games will need to run via a compatibility layer on Valve's Steam Deck system, which means that not all PC games will be compatible with the system. 

This year, Valve has been testing Steam's most popular games to check to see if they are playable on their Steam Deck system. Games that run without any issues are Steam Deck Verified, while others are listed as "Playable", which means that these games require manual tweaking to run smoothly. Incompatible games are listed by Valve as "Unsupported", and untested games are listed as "Unknown". 

Now, Steam users are able to see which of their games are Steam Deck Verified, Playable, and Unsupported using this tool. Follow the link here, log onto your Steam account and see if your games are supported.

Please note that this new tool from Valve only covers games on Steam, it cannot check to see if your games from other platforms are supported. While it should be possible to install games from the Epic Games Store and other Storefronts on your Steam Deck, there is no guarantee that these game will work correctly on Valve's Steam Deck system.

Valve's Steam Deck handheld is launching on February 25th.

Their Proton Layer is pretty damn good and at least not on a handheld supports a massive amount of games. Using this link for me, I have 114 games untested, and more playable than runs out of the box. Quite interesting.

What I thought was the most interesting was Witcher 3 is only playable despite the fact it was developed with console support and I believe already supports Xbox controller on Steam.Quote

I see the biggest issue are games that don't translate well to a controller.
