A crash course of video games and votes.

Tis a new day for the games on Steam Greenlight all eager for everyone’s votes and attention. I’m here to lavish said attention on the games that managed to catch my interest or look good enough despite not being for me. This leads me into my next thing that I feel I must post for every version of this post that I write. I am not trying to make this list of games into a must vote for list. I also do not include all of the games out there looking for said votes. I don’t create a grand list of must vote for games because it is close to impossible to create a list to suit the tastes of gamers without including all of the games. I don’t do that either because I don’t see a real reason to. This leaves me with a list of imperfection, basically any game that caught my attention enough to make think to post it.

This blog post will cover the games of January 23 to 25, 2017.

There are also a few rules I have created to help me out when it comes to the games:

  • Games must have a trailer to be included.
  • Games must look ready for Steam Greenlight.
  • Games must have an understandable English description to all me to write about and include them.
  • Reposted games that I have gone over in a previous blog post will not be included.
  • And a new rule, games that are mobile ports that don’t look like they have had much work put into bringing them over to PC will not be included/

 

Here is the latest list of games looking for votes:
