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

May 2024’s Humble Choice lineup is here, and it’s as diverse as it is captivating. From the immersive RPG world of Yakuza: Like a Dragon to the rhythm-based action of Hi-Fi RUSH, and the engaging narrative of Amanda the Adventurer, there’s a universe for every type of gamer.

The selection this month spans from “Gold” to “Platinum” on ProtonDB, indicating a range from games that run smoothly with minimal adjustments on Linux systems and the Steam Deck, to others that might require a bit more tinkering. Standouts include Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Hi-Fi RUSH, both achieving “Platinum” and “Verified” status, ensuring a seamless gaming experience.

In terms of commitment, whether you’re after a quick adventure or a deep dive, May’s choices have got you covered. Fancy a brief yet intense journey? Amanda the Adventurer offers around 1 hour of main storyline gameplay. On the other hand, if you’re ready to lose yourself in a vast, engaging experience, Yakuza: Like a Dragon presents up to 103 hours for completionists. From quick fixes to lengthy campaigns, there’s something for every schedule.

I’ve already had the thrill of playing Hi-Fi RUSH on my Steam Deck, and as a fan of innovative music-driven games, it hit all the right notes for me. Alongside this, I’m eager to delve into the deep story of Yakuza: Like a Dragon for its dramatic RPG elements. Amanda the Adventurer also stands out with its unique interactive storytelling, promising a refreshing change of pace. For those interested in other games, I’ll be hosting giveaways on the @DeckFilter Twitter account, so stay tuned for your chance to win!
