Lost and dazed by a new voting queue on steam greenlight.

A new voting queue rolls into town looking to cause a ruckus and it’s basically time to wrestle it into something resembling an interesting list of games. This little blog post will cover the games of July 21 to 23, 2016.

I must note that I use my opinion to see which games to include in this list. I don’t intend this blog to be the end all be all about the games to vote for on Greenlight. And that’s because everyone’s taste in gaming differs so I will post some games that others may not like. I encourage everyone to check out the games of Greenlight for yourselves.

Rules:

  • Games must look ready for Greenlight.
  • Each game must have a trailer to be included.
  • Games need to have an understandable English translation.
  • Reposted games to Greenlight that I’ve previously gone over will not be included.

 

Now we get on with the Games:
