MultiVersus, a fighting game, is the biggest title on Steam Deck
As you probably know, the steam bridge It is very popular. Valve’s laptop quickly developed a large community around it, and it’s become the preferred way for many to play their favorite Steam games on the go. But what games exactly are all these new Steam Deck owners playing? You would think these would be smaller, fast-paced games that are easy to pause, as is the case with most portable and mobile games. Well, Valve has shared some data and it looks like a lot of you are really into gaming. Multiverse and Ring of Elden while you are on the toilet.
Not what you would have guessed, huh?
Earlier today on Twitter, Valve’s official Steam Deck Twitter account posted a list of the ten most played games on the Steam Deck last week. Clarified valve in a follow-up tweet that the list is sorted by the average number of daily users.
- vampire survivors
- Ring of Elden
- No Man’s Sky
- Stardew Valley
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Opening office job
- Rise of the Monster Hunter
As for the list, yes, the recently released free-to-play Smash Bros.-like a fighting game, Multiverse, is at the top. A bit strange to see a fighting game at the top of the list, but being free probably helped. It’s also possible that people have found interesting ways to play Multiverse and other games on this list thanks to the Steam Deck funky but versatile controls. Let’s just hope WB doesn’t kill this game with everything it’s canceled lately.
What’s also funny about it is that some people admit that playing Multiverse on deck makes their hands cramp, but the allure of having it on the go is just too great.
No shock to see Wander at number three because the game is already popular, not very expensive, and seems like the perfect game to play on the Steam Deck. Maybe play on the porch at night with a soft rain in the background. Attractive. Also, no surprise have GTA V on the list because at this point it seems like half the world is playing this game on one platform. So why not the Steam Deck?
Also, of course, Ring of Elden—one of the biggest and most popular games of 2022-is at the top of the list. Personally, I’m not sure I can enjoy it on Steam Deck, but I don’t really enjoy FromSoftware games on any platform either.
I hope Valve releases more data on steam bridge games moving forward, maybe even a similar list of top 10 most played games on the laptop for all of 2022. Oh and also, maybe shipping my Steam Deck soon? Thanks Valve!
