Not sure why "not having an adequate presence on consoles" should mean shit.
A lot of the things I'll (eventually?) play on this thing will also have a Switch version, except I won't have to buy them more than once and pay the Nintendo
robb premium price for them. Also, good performances.
If i want to play shooters,i can't think of one i like that isn't on the console i own.
If i want to play rpg, in all of its forms, consoles are arguably the platform most modern RPGs are designed for.
If i want to pay platformers,side scrollers, shmups, they're all better on console.
If i want to play indy games, they're all in console.
If i want to play rtwp or its simpleton turn based cousins, they're both on consoles
If i want to play 4x, it's on consoles
If i want to play chess, it's on consoles. Tetris, too.
If i want to play rts, it's on consoles, but with simplistic controls that i don't enjoy.
Apparently steam deck is designed so that the controls are an adequate stand-in for a keyboard, so I'm most interested in seeing how RTS translates.
The rts i care most about atm that could possibly demand a lot of battery power from the deck is aoe4.
So when i hear that maybe I'd only be able to play aoe4 for 2 hours, it was relevant to me and i posted it.
So there, hope you enjoyed the wall of text.
