The fast fun maybe furious queue of greenlight games running for votes.

Video games are wrestling for attention on Steam Greenlight all so that they can be purchased from Steam itself once they get voted through.

Now a few things to go through before I can get to the games. This post will cover games posted to Greenlight from September 7 to 9, 2016.  I make no bones that this post contains the games that I find interesting from Greenlight, or games that look good enough despite not being games I would play. I do try to give all games a fair chance to impress. The one thing I do not intend is for this list to be considered the end all be all of the games you should vote for. I know tastes in gaming vary greatly from person to person. Lastly, there are a few rules I have established to help me be able to judge the games.

Rules:

  • Games must look ready for Greenlight.
  • Reposted games that I have gone over in a previous post will not be included in this one.
  • Games must have a trailer to be included.
  • Games must have an understandable English translation so that I can write about them.
