Baldur's Gate 3 still dominates the best Steam Deck games, and here's why!

Valve has released its monthly report of the most played games on the Steam Deck, and it's no surprise that Baldur's Gate 3 still dominates the rankings.

The monthly rankings of the most played games on Steam Deck are a fascinating look into the world of video games. What are people playing on this weird Linux console that quietly changed video games?

Well, it's Baldur's Gate 3, a game that, in our experience, still has major performance issues on the Steam Deck. Chapter 3 was riddled with bugs on the console, but they appear to have been mitigated by updates from AMD, Larian, or Valve.

Another surprising entry is Starfield. While the game may lose interest for some players, it is surprising that it has managed to rise to the top three in the world rankings. In terms of performance, the game runs barely average on the Steam Deck, with frame rates below 30fps in dense areas.

Perhaps, as we discovered earlier in the year with the Resident Evil 4 remake, most players don't really care about solid performance, they just want to play. As long as it's playable, it seems like people will endure anything on the Steam Deck.

Most of the rest of the list remains broadly the same as we've seen over the past few months. Dave the Diver, Vampire Survivors, and No Man's Sky remain dominant despite their decline in the rankings.

Another interesting point to note is Diablo 4, which was released on Steam just a few weeks ago. The game works great with low-quality textures, and provides an ideal way to loot on the go.
