Greenlit Games from 2016-2017

A Continuation of Steam Greenlight

Welcome back to Steam Greenlight showings from 2016 to 2017! The previous trailers I found were part of the Greenlit section, meaning that they have gained a tremendous amount of support from the Steam community. As you can see, people have invented many creative approaches to gameplay.

What to Expect in the Future

On Steam, there are thousands of potential video games to review. I currently own 250+ awesome, well-known titles stored in my Steam Library. My goal is to play through at least half of them and suggest which titles are worth your time. It is my job to scout for games by separating the “wheat from the chaff” so to speak.
