Vampire Survivors is the most played game on Steam Deck in August, followed by Cult of Lamb and Elden Ring

Vampire Survivors is the most played game on Steam Deck in August, followed by Cult of Lamb and Elden Ring

Yesterday, Valve's Steam Deck Twitter account shared August's Top 10 most played Steam Deck games, sorted by hours played.

In the top spot, we find the fantastic Vampire Survivors, followed by Cult of Lamb and — to my surprise — Elden Ring. Only in fourth place do we find Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered, a game I expected to be in the Top 3.

Then again, Spider-Man was only released in mid-August, so its high placement might be the biggest surprise here.

My top games for August look similar, with Vampire Survivors, No Man's Sky (currently on sale), and Hades in my personal Top 3. Though right now, I mostly try to finish Death Stranding on the big screen.
