PARADOX (also known as PDX and sometimes PARADiSO) was founded in 1989, mainly cracking games for the Amiga. They went on to crack software for the Windows operating system and other consoles. They were one of the earliest groups to successfully crack Windows Vista, which was supposed to be a difficult task based on changes Microsoft had made to the activation scheme for the software.
Perhaps that's the problem. eFootball should not have launched straight into a full release: simply labelling this as Early Access would surely have taken out some of the venom, not least because it does feel like an Early Access game. When it's bad, it's often bad in funny ways. It feels a bit like Mass Effect Andromeda's viral lampooning (opens in new tab) all over again.

It goes without saying that games made by Valve should run well on a gaming handheld by the same company. Being fully voice-acted and with no inventory to manage, Portal 2's a perfect game for the Deck (as is the original). Both work great with a controller, and are relatively slow paced so you'll feel comfortable pausing it whenever, rather than making the doctor wait while you finish this level. You may need to tweak the controls or use a community layout but otherwise it runs smooth as anything.
I've always felt like Fez would be better on handheld, and I was right. A tiny game like this really doesn't warrant turning on a full gaming rig, and yet it's rich and engaging enough to want to play everywhere you go while also being relatively slow paced, so you can put it down at any moment and pick it back up when you get time.
Being fully voice-acted and not menu heavy at all, this is one of the very best options for the Deck. It's a tiny game, but it's super engaging and the quick time events (for me at least) are much easier with a controller. Wolf Among Us doesn't need Proton, either. You might want to use a headset with it if you're playing in public though, as it's a bit risqué in places.
It's a little larger than some of the games on this list, but Divinity: Original Sin 2 is fully verified for the Deck. The system requirements are minimal, so it runs pretty smoothly, though since it's a turn based game it's probably worth switching the frame cap down to 30fps to save on battery. Still, I got a good few hours out of it with everything on default settings. It's great with a controller and fully voice-acted so you only really have to read tooltips and your own responses. There is a way to scale the UI, but finding it in the Linux OS is a bit of a pain.
Linux: Launch the game with the '-show-screen-selector' parameter and start it in windowed mode, otherwise the main menu screen will be unresponsive and it won't register any mouse click. You can then switch into fullscreen mode with the in-game settings.
Thankfully, the wonderfully ridiculous tale is bolstered by some of the best mechanics featured in contemporary fighting games, with the new Power Crush, Rage Arts, and Rage Drive attacks deftly blending into the established mix.
Carrion is a unique one as far as horror titles go. It's a fully-fledged Metroidvania sidescroller where players can control a tentacled monster hellbent on killing everyone in a research facility. The developers themselves describe the game as a reverse horror where they play the monster in a typical sci-fi monster horror flick. 076b4e4f54
