A holiday battle of Greenlight games for votes.

Greenlight rolls on with new games posted to the service looking for votes even in the middle of the holiday season and a Steam sale. We’re looking at games that have been posted between December 21 to 23, 2015 or games that are caught in my queue from before then.

This list is created using my opinon, which can result in games not making the post despite being worth a looking worthy. I try to give every game a fair chance to impress. Games may also leave Greenlight pretty quickly, so this post may be slightly out of date by the time you read it.

Rules:

  • Games must have a trailer.
  • Games must look ready for Greenlight.
  • Games must have an English translation so I can write about them.
  • Reposted games to Greenlight that I’ve previously talked about will not be included.

 

Now those pesky Games:
