Humble Choice March 2024: What to play on Steam Deck based on HLTB & Compatibility

This March 2024, Humble Choice is bringing us a really cool mix of games. You’ll get to dive into all kinds of worlds – from fighting in the Warhammer universe to exploring the dark fantasy of Nioh 2, and even running your own gang in Saints Row. For each game, I’ve included the ProtonDB tiers and Deck Verified statuses, plus how long it might take you to beat it. This way, you can pick the games that fit your play style and how much time you have. Whether you like quick games or long adventures, there’s something here for you.

In this selection, we have games achieving “Platinum” and “Gold” tiers on ProtonDB, meaning they range from running perfectly to needing minor tweaks on Linux systems and the Steam Deck. Titles like “Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin” and “Citizen Sleeper” shine with “Platinum” status for seamless play. Additionally, “Black Skylands” and “Afterimage” are marked as “Deck Verified,” hopefully assuring a great experience on the Steam Deck.

When it comes to playtime, the lineup offers a range that can match your schedule and gaming appetite. Shorter games like “Citizen Sleeper,” with a main story around 7 hours, sit alongside mid-length titles such as “Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition,” where diving into the main story takes about 43 hours. And for those who relish a comprehensive gaming journey, “Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition” extends to about 130 hours for completionists. With this variety, you can easily find a title that fits your free time, whether you’re looking for a brief escape or a deep dive into another world.

This time around, I’m particularly excited to pick up Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition for myself. It’s a title I’ve been wanting to dive into for a while, and I plan to play the first Nioh game before jumping into this one to fully enjoy the storyline and gameplay evolution. Additionally, I’ll be redeeming Saints Row and Soulstice to add to my personal collection. As for the rest of the games, I’ve decided to give them away for free on the @DeckFilter Twitter account. So, keep an eye out for those giveaways in the upcoming weeks and months if you’re interested in trying them out for yourself!
