Games and more games are lined up on greenlight.

There is another queue of games that have placed themselves, not really it was done by their developers, upon Steam Greenlight. These games are there because they hope to be voted through and then be allowed by Valve to be sold on the digital distribution platform.

Now I will say that this list of games, which is ordered in the way that Greenlight shows them to me, is mostly about the games that managed to catch my attention.  It does not include all of the games looking for votes and is not meant to be a best of list. In my opinion it would be rather pointless to include all of the games looking for votes. And on the other end of things as a best of list would be nigh impossible as everyone has differing tastes when it comes to games.

I do have some rules to help me sort out what games to include:

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

 

And before we begin running with the games, this post will January 17 to 19, 2017. And now the sprint to the finish as the Games herd there way forward for attention.
