Everyone is using their Steam Deck like a better Nintendo Switch

Steam Deck users, despite owning a surprisingly powerful handheld PC, are primarily using it like an upgraded Nintendo Switch.

Valve released a list (opens in new tab) of the most played games (by hour count) on the handheld and it largely includes ones that are also available on Nintendo’s console. Vampire Survivors, which doesn’t currently have a Switch version, sits on top, but Cult of the Lamb, Stardew Valley, Hades, Skyrim, and Monster Hunter Rise are all games that work well on Nintendo’s handheld. And I’m sure Switch owners wish they could have a version of Spider-Man and Elden Ring that didn’t run like trash or via cloud streaming.
