Hi everyone, I’m looking for some grindy games to play on the deck (any genre is OK).

Currently playing monster hunter world and I think I’ll give factorio a try.

Any suggestions?

    I just finished a 200 hour Rampant playthrough yesterday (on my PC) so I love me some Factorio. But I can’t imagine how it plays with console controls. Is it decent?

      The dev went to great lengths to optimize the controller support. He wrote about it on his blog while he was working on it. Pretty interesting stuff.

        I haven’t looped back to the game since it was added. How would you say the controller support is compared to the trackpad style setups that were previously required on Deck?

          I’ve only played on the Steam Deck but I found the controls to be fairly intuitive and easy to use. I’ve played over 160 hours and never once wished I had a keyboard and mouse instead.

        I appreciate the effort, all works, but I think it’s still very difficult to play factorio on a handheld only imo. I tried it. Some game formats just don’t work well on handhelds…
