I still don't understand the whole point of this Green Light process. Why make unreleased games win some arbitrary popularity contest? It's not acting as a quality gateway since the games aren't released yet, and it isn't like unpopular games will consume a lot of resources.
Actually, many of the games on greenlight are released already, they just were refused by the normal steam process.

Anyway, why? Valve talked about it in the greenlight press release. I've talked about it in a number of threads about it.

Valve mostly only likes doing interesting and/or fun work (flat aka no management structure, wheels on desk). Approving games for steam tends to be neither since its mostly crap. Valve said in the press release they wanted to offload most of that work onto the community. They've even gone as far as saying they want that to be the only approval method to get new games from companies not on steam.

After a few tweaks to the process, seems like its working to get some decent games not yet on steam onto it. Both in progress games and already completed games.

Primordia and Waking Mars are amazing games released on Greenlight (as well as GOG). Get them now.

It's about damn time Pinball Arcade made it through that broken Greenlight system. Have this on my Vita and very happy to buy it again on PC.

I didn't realize it was the same game; Pinball Arcade on Vita is awesome, probably my most played game on the device. I'd buy it again on PC, especially if it includes some of the extra tables like Medieval Madness.

As a consumer I'd rather Steam not be inundated with shovelware.

That's about what Greenlight is doing for the most part, though

I don't see it that way. Greenlight has added a total of only 90 games to Steam, and a majority of those are looking to be quality titles. Please do NOT make Steam anythinng like the Android market.

Steam should just start acting like the Android Market. Let anyone sign up their game and take a cut of the sales.

I saw it on the PSN and was tempted but already have most of the tables in The Williams Collection and thought the add on tables were a bit pricy. Just noticed they have the ST:TNG table now, still not tempted enough, now if they add High Speed to the collection I might not be able to resist.

So many of these just look damn, damn good. Legend of Dungeon and Hammerwatch are the ones that really have my eye. Frozen Endzone is a surprise, but a fun one.

Pinball arcade looks like something I'd be interested in. Sweet nostalgia.

Cradle looks neat and Shovel Knight is a really promising throwback game.

Oh hells yeah! I'm going to be all over Pinball Arcade like a Pinball Wizard!

Cradle looks interesting.

And if you want an idea of what the Unity engine can do check out City of Steam. It's a great little steampunk ARPG! The devs are good peeps!

Good to see Battle Worlds: Kronos on this lsit. Backed the kickstarter campaign.  
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

Nice! Glad to see Cradle made it (and that it's actually still in development).
