Steam Deck Gaming

Steam Deck Gaming is perhaps the premier channel for anyone looking to stay up-to-date with their Steam Deck. What sets this channel apart is its dedication to delivering concise and straightforward content that cuts to the chase—exactly what you need when you’re deciding on your next game purchase or update. As a personal fan and a Patreon supporter, I’ve had the pleasure of engaging directly with the creator. We’ve collaborated on a project and he’s currently beta testing DeckFilter, providing invaluable feedback that helps improve the app.

Gardiner Bryant

Gardiner Bryant offers a delightful mix of personal charm (that mustache!) and expert knowledge, especially for those who lean towards Linux. His channel provides a “biased” take on gaming that adds personality and relatability to his content. Gardiner is not just a content creator I admire but also a supporter of DeckFilter, even featuring it in his video “Is this the end of Valve time?”. His insights are a great resource for anyone looking to understand more about gaming on the Steam Deck and beyond.

This channel is a treasure trove of tips, tricks, and game reviews that every Deck owner should check out. Recently, I reached out to him on Twitter, and started a conversation about DeckFilter. He even suggested a small yet significant feature that could enhance the app. His enthusiasm and community-focused approach make his channel a must-follow.

Last but certainly not least, DeckReady, hosted by Jimmy Champane, is your laid-back, yet informative source for all things Steam Deck. Jimmy’s engaging style and comprehensive coverage make it easy for viewers to stay informed about the latest Steam Deck news. Interestingly, Jimmy’s enthusiasm is not limited to just the Steam Deck; he also runs a channel called PSReady, which convinced me to buy a PS5 already! I hope we can get in touch soon, Jimmy! 🤓
