A new collective of games needing votes on steam greenlight.

Today is a new day or an old day, never can really tell with the way they tend to fly off and past me. Anyway its judge the games looking for votes on Steam Greenlight time, a task which I take pretty lightheartedly because it never pays to be annoyingly serious.

There are a few things to be said first though. One: this post will cover the games of September 13 to 15, 2016. Two: This post isn’t meant to be the only thing you read when judging the games of Greenlight. Everyone has differing opinions myself included. These games are also judged based on my opinion, and not all of them will be included. I try to give all games a fair chance, but also note that well including all of the games up for votes would be a bit silly.

I have some rules I use to help me narrow down the games out there.

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