If you were looking for a way to simply check the compatibility of your Steam catalog with the Steam Deck, the solution now seems to be there.

This will undoubtedly reassure gamers who were worried about not being able to find their way through the games that will be compatible with Steam Deck. CheckMyDeck, as it is called, is a tool that will allow you to simply analyze all the titles that make up your game library and then determine, in an automated way, if they are compatible with your Steam Deck. CheckMyDeck lists the titles in different categories to simplify your task: “verified“, “playable“, “unsupported” and “unknown“.

If the “verified” titles are officially communicated by Valve, and the list now contains more than a hundred of them, the “playable” titles may require some manipulations beforehand, such as modifying the graphical parameters. Unsupported games are mostly incompatible because of their anti-cheat system (like Fortnite for example) while titles listed in the “unknown” category will have to be launched manually to check their compatibility, while waiting for them to be officially tested by Valve.

To put this into practice, simply go directly to CheckMyDeck, enter your Steam profile URL and copy your Steam ID into the “Steam64” box, before returning to CheckMyDeck to complete the operation.
