First things first, you've gotta sideload the Amazon Games App onto your Steam Deck. This involves enabling desktop mode, downloading the Amazon Games App from the web, and installing it (just make sure you're in Developer Mode first). Once it's up and running, log in, download your games, and you should be in business! It might not be as smooth as native Steam games, but hey, it's gaming on the go!

Honestly, it's more hassle than it's worth. Just play games directly available on Steam; there's plenty to choose from without jumping through hoops.

Short answer? It's a bit of a hacky process. You need to install the Amazon Games app on the Steam Deck by switching to Desktop Mode, but performance may vary. Not all games play nice with Proton (Steam's Windows compatibility layer), so brace yourself for some trial and error!

I actually did this! It's not too bad - sideloading the Amazon app, logging in, and downloading my Prime games. Playing Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order off Amazon on my Deck felt like a small victory. Some games were a bit finicky, but overall, it's a neat workaround.
