I don't disagree at all. In fact I have said multiple times that the idea of the entire Steam library being playable seems like a miracle to me. However, Valve has stated that as a goal so many times now that I believe them. I believe they wouldn't have said that if they didn't think they can make it happen. At the very least I expect them to have all the popular games up and running for launch and patch in support for any outliers. I don't think anyone would care if a random asset flip didn't work.I think you are underestimating the breadth of the Steam library, the sheer API surface (documented and undocumented) available to decades of proprietary Windows games and their respective DRM and anti-cheat solutions, and the depth of the technical issues which will present themselves when trying to get all of it to run flawlessly. I'll say it right now: that's not happening.
I'm more than willing to eat crow if they actually manage to do it (and e.g. PSO2, which is an MMO with a decade of patchworked technology and a semi-custom anti-cheat behind it works at launch), but Valve implying full Steam library compatibility is the biggest (basically only?) mistake with how they've presented the Deck so far IMHO.
Boy is it a relief seeing you here! Welcome!IT'S HAPPENING....
