Roping and wrestling a tough voting queue of games for greenlight.

Games are gathering for their annual look and show off on Steam Greenlight and I’m here to give those games the once or twice look over. This post will cover August 8 to 10, 2016.  And also as I like to point out this list isn’t meant to be some great end all be all of games you should vote for on Steam Greenlight. Mostly because taste in gaming tends to differ so greatly. It is also based on my opinion and because of that not all games will be included. I try to give all games a chance to impress.

A few rules:

  • Games must have a trailer to be included.
  • Games must look ready for Greenlight to be included.
  • Games must have an understandable English translation to be included.
  • Reposted games to Greenlight that I’ve gone over in pervious blog posts will not be included in this one.
