Lounging about with a queue of video games.

Yes a new queue of video games has lined up to be shot on Steam Greenlight. Wait… maybe not shot but voted for. Either way, I’m here to look through the games and see which ones manage to catch my attention in some form.

There are some rules I use to help me sort out which games to include:

  • Games must have a trailer to be included.
  • Reposted games that I have gone over in a previous blog post will not be included.
  • Games must have an understandable English description to allow me to write about and include them.
  • And, games must look ready for Greenlight to be included.

Now there is a few things I’d like my readers to understand before I get to the video games. First this list is not meant to be a grand collection of must vote for games. I also do not include all games looking for votes.. I do that because to include all of the games would be in my opinion a silly waste of time. I also do not claim this as a supreme list as gamers all have differing tastes and to meet everyone’s taste I would have to include all of the games, which goes back to something I see as a waste of time.

This post will cover the games of January 5 to 7, 2017 and maybe a few games from before then.

Now we can talk about the Games:
