Valve’s Steam Deck has been a hot topic in the gaming industry since its release in 2022, and here is its list of the top games for March 2023!
With its impressive hardware and PC-like capabilities, it’s no surprise that gamers are flocking to the device.
Now, Valve has released the top 20 most-played games for the Steam Deck in March, with some of the industry’s biggest titles maintaining their positions.
If you’re a fan of mobile gaming, then the Steam Deck is undoubtedly a must-have device. It even poses a threat to the highly popular Nintendo Switch.
The fact that Valve’s handheld has managed to keep its position in the market despite the announcement of other handheld devices in development from Asus and Sony is impressive.
Steam Deck Most Played Games in March 2023
Let’s take a closer look at two out of twenty of March’s most popular games on the Steam Deck:
- Hogwarts Legacy: This highly anticipated RPG has been a hit among gamers since its release earlier this year, and it’s not surprising to see it on the top 20 list because of its massive Twitch all-time high views.
- Elden Ring: Another highly anticipated title that has been a long time coming, Elden Ring has been a popular choice among Steam Deck users.
Not much has changed in the list
While not much has changed since February, the recent inclusion of Resident Evil 4’s remake onto the list is notable.
The game is riding on the hype train and is selling well across all platforms. It’s possible that it may climb up the ranks as more people play it on the Steam Deck.
It’s also surprising not to see Hi-Fi Rush on the list, especially considering it’s Deck verified and has a high Metacritic score.
The game was a sleeper hit for developer Tango Gameworks and publisher Bethesda when it was released earlier this year, but perhaps the hype simply died down or it wasn’t marketed enough to appear on the Deck.
Steam Deck is undoubtedly successful
Valve has had a shaky history when it comes to hardware, but the Steam Deck has been a significant success. With other handheld devices in development, Valve will have to continue to up its game to maintain its place in the mobile PC market.
However, Steam Deck recently announced that the handheld device no longer supports The Last of Us Part 1, and maybe that would result in uncertain review rates.
Nonetheless, with the current line-up of games available for the Steam Deck and its new features such as the local network transfer feature and native ray tracing, it’s a device worth investing in for any avid gamer.
