Arcade games rule this queue of Greenlight games.

Steam Greenlight queue time. And since I don’t like wasting much time, let’s get through this post at a nice pace. This queue is for games posted between December 9 to 11, 2015 or any games caught in my queue from before then.

This list is created from my opinion, which means some games might not get a mention but look ready. I try my best to give every game a fair chance to impress me. It should also be noted that games come and go quickly from Greenlight, which should put this post out of date a day or two after its published but hopeful it isn’t that soon.

Rules:

  • Each game to be included must have a trailer.
  • Games should look ready for Greenlight.
  • In order for me to write about the games, there should be an English translation.
  • Reposted games to Greenlight that I’ve previously talked about, will not be included.
