What will you do with a Steam Deck?


As you can see from our coverage of Steam floor, Valve’s mobile PC got us hooked. It’s designed to let you leave your desktop behind while taking your library with you on the go. It may be just a room, or during a long trip, but all your games and friends will still be available to you.

With that in mind, if you get one, what are you going to do with it? Will it be an extension of your desktop game, helping you progress along with you? Do you hope to find a way to appreciate the different types of games on the device? Can you imagine using the dock and accessing the underlying OS? Let us know below.

I asked myself this the other day. I was explaining the concept of the device to my partner, and up until that point, I hadn’t really thought about what I could do with it, other than pick it up and marvel at it. I don’t really mind playing mobile games, and while that means I’m an ideal candidate to give it a try, I still don’t believe I’ll feel comfortable using it. it’s on a train or a plane like when I’m reading I will try to Doom my way from Dundee to Glasgow one weekend, but in the end I prefer the passive when traveling. I read. I watch everything. I love watching.

But it also surprises me that it might be the last device that allows me to share my Steam library with her. We play in fundamentally different ways. I’m using my PC; she is using her phone. The only crossover we had was when we picked up Minecraft together when I was sitting on the PC and she was in the living room with the controller. I considered building a gaming PC for her, but that still means finding space in the living room to put it in and figuring out how best for her to control everything. So far, it’s always been a bit of a hassle.

She’s more used to mobile controllers and screens. And so far, something like that, which can also access and play almost every game in my Steam library, proved cumbersome. The laptop is too wobbly, the LAN sharing on Steam has a slight lag, and Steam Mobile is too cramped.

But the Deck? It has some built-in control methods that don’t require re-analyzing what she already knows. It doesn’t require a new office chair, keyboard or monitor and has all the games. I don’t need to share or stream or mess around. They were there for her to explore.

So for me, I would use it to help other people get into PC games without having to walk them through the whole process. I didn’t think about that when I bought it, but it feels like the most obvious choice by far.
