Locked and loading a new longing queue of video games.

Welcome to the insanity of Steam Greenlight where games beg for attention and votes so that they can be allowed to be sold on the digital distribution platform. I’m here to tell them that they can’t… wait… I’m here to see which of these crazy games manages to catch my attention and too be a bit silly at times.

And of course as it goes with these blog posts there is much to say that you probably won’t pay a lick of attention to and that’s okay for the most part.

First up this post will cover the games of February 7 to 9. 2017 and maybe a few stragglers from before then looking for votes.

Next up this list does not include all of the games looking for votes and it is also not a grand list of must vote for games. I believe that doing a grand list would be close to impossible and in my terrible opinion listing all of the games up for votes would be rather pointless.

I have a few rules to help me narrow down what games I do include:

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