    I think the games on vote needs more polish (even for a indie game), before I would pay for it. So far after flipping through the 12 pages, I don't see anything worthwhile.

    In any case I still think this is a great idea.

    Oh if anyone see anything awesome that I might've missed on greenlight, please PM me.

    Wait, you didn't vote for Towing Simulator??? How about the timeless classic Truck Driving Simulator? Damn, they got my votes, other than that nothing of interest, all looks very mediocre at best. Some games just look plain bad, hardly worth a mention let alone a vote.

    Voting? Not a big deal to me. I have bought over 10 games from Value. It the game's forum where I can find detail information about the game from players and reviews that have made me buy a game.

    Voting? Without a explaination of the reason behind their votes, it is meanless information to me.

    The thing is that you can't buy the game until they place it on STEAM. And voting will get the game on STEAM.

    After 3 pages I realized I probably wouldn't see anything worthwhile so I stopped. I told myself I'd come back and finish the rest but I just don't have the free time.

    The games don't look like anything special so far; maybe that will change, given some time.

    Okay so I went back last night and flipped through a few more pages....its now up to 22 pages. And I did find a few very interesting games:

    -project zomboid - zombie survival - outdated graphics - but seems good for a indie.
    -dawn of fantasy
    -heroes and generals
