Attention! A Greenlight voting queue has run amok.

Ah! The newest Greenlight queue is running all over and needs to be sorted, whatever do we do? Perhaps stop making bad jokes? Eh. Here is some information as to what goes into the creation of this interesting list of games.

This list is for games posted between September 19 to 21, 2015. It is in no real order, I list games as they are shown to me. As this list is my opinion that means sometimes games that might be worth mentioning don’t make it. I try not to let that happen. I suggest that you visit and look at the Greenlight games yourself.

There are few rules I do go by:

  • Games must have a trailer.
  • Reposted Greenlight games I have previously talked about will not be included.
  • Games must look ready for Greenlight and not look like joke submissions.
  • There must be an English translation for me to write about the game.
