Taking a sunday stroll with the games of greenlight.

The video games queing on Steam Greenlight are demanding votes which is exactly what I shall drop on them. Of course before I can get to looking over the games there are a few things worth saying.

This queue of games will cover from September 16 to 18, 2016 and perhaps a few straggling games from before then. As always I try to give all games a fair chance to impress me to be included, I however do not set out to include all games automatically. Because of this I recommend readers to check out the games of Greenlight that and everyone’s taste in gaming differs so there may be games that you like that are not included on my list.

A few rules to help me make it through the games:

  • Reposted games to Greenlight that I’ve gone over in a previous post will not be included in this one.
  • Games must look ready overall for Greenlight to be included.
  • There must be an understandable English translation for me to write about the games and include them.
  • Each game must have a trailer to be included.

 

Here are the Games:
