In our Steam Deck review,  we praise its comfortable design, tactile buttons and customization options. Although we wish it had longer battery life, we gave the Steam Deck a high 4.5 out of 5-star rating and our Editor's Choice Award.

So, what can you play on the Steam Deck? Short answer: more than you think and the majority of what you’d want to play on the go. The deck feels great in the hands, advanced internals are tuned for peak performance that manage to make the most of any title thrown at it.

Its user-friendly UI puts Sony and Microsoft to shame while an open source Linux base means users will be expanding what it can do for years to come.

Now up to $65 off, the Steam Deck has never been more affordable. It's worth considering if you're looking for a Nintendo Switch alternative for PC gaming on the go.
