Like every month, Valve tends to put out a list of the games that people played the most on the Steam Deck. This handheld console is now one of the best ones out there, truly surpassing the Nintendo Switch. While Nintendo boasts some great first-party titles as exclusives, some of the latest ones have proven too much for the console. One clear example is the latest Pokémon generation. Scarlet and Violet remain the talk of the moment due to their technical problems. On the other hand, Valve’s console is powerful enough to run some of the latest and biggest titles. Here is the list of the most played games of December on the Steam Deck.
The Top 20 most-played games of December on the Steam Deck include Elden Ring, Vampire Survivors, and more

While there are some big titles out there, indie games have also appeared on the list. We are happy to see games like Vampire Survivors, Stardew Valley, and Valheim out there. The latter got a big update earlier that adds a new zone and many more things. We can safely say that the console is quite successful due to the most played games of December on the Steam Deck. Here’s hoping for 2023 with more compatible games for the console and of course a chance for people to get a Steam Deck this year.
