Best Steam Deck-ready Games Available in the Steam Winter Sale
5. Doom Eternal
Doom Eternal brings the nostalgia of demon-slaying back tenfold; it’s one of the best games available on Steam Deck and will never bore you. Plus, the overwhelming depiction of gore and the loud guns of the metal soundtrack will keep your wild side entertained this holiday season.
4. Marvel Spider-Man: Remastered or Marvel Spider-Man: Miles Morales
You can buy either for your Steam deck, as both Spider-Man games are compatible and well worth it. Peter Parker’s adventures make for a classic tale, while Miles’ adventures are full of twists, turns, and unique powers. Responsibility or over-the-top pretension, the choice is yours.
With fast-paced RPGs and action, a beautiful story, and an even better animation style, Hades is a must-play for all gamers. The gorgeous visuals look like they came straight out of a graphic novel. I guarantee you will enjoy this adventure.
2. Horizon Zero Dawn
Horizon Zero Dawn is a spectacle. In a world ruled by dangerous machines, Aloy takes charge to save himself from their black-hearted rule. The graphics are beautiful, the characters are engaging, and the combat is top-notch. The story progresses nicely, and the classic tale of outcasts never gets boring.
1. God of War
Kratos’ story continues, this time on a handheld console! God of War is worth getting on the Steam deck because of its replayability and the number of things you can do in the game. The boss fights, graphics, characters, and story are all top-notch, and all areas are as alive as ever. One of the best games ever made.
