How the Steam Deck brings old, underrated games to life

I’m obsessed with my Steam Deck. I received Valve’s portable gaming computer in May of this year, and it quickly became my all-time favorite console. After a period of serious media burnout, it made me fall in love with games all over again, and I’ve finished more games in the past six months than in previous years. As you’d expect, the rest of my consoles have been gathering dust since.

To illustrate the depth of the rabbit hole, even when there is an exclusive PlayStation or Xbox game to discover, I use remote play services like Chiaki and Greenlight to be able to play it on my Steam Deck. God of War: Ragnarok sings on the big screen, sure, but what if you could play it from the comfort of your bed, without compromise? In a world driven by the attention economy, this is a bet that interests me.
