As usual, the lesser popular genres get no recognition.
They give stats from that button to developers to egg them on
They then, apparently, ignore this completely - wtg there!
FUCKING DRAGONS LAIR!?
Sorry but there's something sorely awry there - see also Primordia and Darkfall (which had been on Greenlight less than a week - and most of that was the sales!?!?!?)
If I had a game in the Top 10 and was bypassed, I'd want to know why. I've paid - I've played their game - I'd like to know wtf...
I realise they won't want everything their 'community' picks BUT they've already taken some games I doubt would have gotten within a mile of Steam before Greenlight (Postal 2, Euro Truck Simulator2 and more) so clearly there isn't too-high a barrier to entry here??
Every green light game with enough votes goes on a cork board, GabeN throws darts at the cork board to pick, GabeN is terrible at darts, all true.
I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way
Darkfall Unholy Wars is an upcoming sequel to the cult classic and niche Darkfall. It's an open world persistent sandbox MMO with free for all PvP, full loot, sieges and the combat is first person/third person with no tab target. This game, unlike the first, will have classes, or roles. You can mix and match roles and switch between with a short timer, so your character is not locked to one playstyle. Leveling one role is easy, shouldn't take more than a couple of days to finish, but leveling them all is hard. All gear is craftable by the player, and you wont be attatched to your items like you are in other MMOs, it comes and go's pretty easy, so losing it is no big deal, and gaining it from others is a nice bonus.
Darkfall has been on Steam greenlight for 2 days, and the entirety of the dedicated hardcore fanbase voted YES, and told all their friends. It will be released on 12.12.12, and possibly released on Steam at a later date, or on the same day, it hasn't been announced. Darkfall Unholy Wars follows the subscription method, you buy the client (unless you owned Darkfall 1), and pay a small subscription fee each month. A hardcore full loot PvP MMO does not fit the FFA cashshop model, so if you can't afford the subscription for a month of entertainment which is the same as one trip to the cinema, this probably isn't the genre for you anyway.

The world needs more full loot PVP MMO's. Too many cookie cutter MMO's like Guild Wars 2 and SWTOR out there.. not enough innovation.. DarkFall and Mortal Online are at least innovative.. which can't be said for much of the rest of the genre.
Think I'll wait for the Eurogamer review on the new DarkFall
P.S. DarkFall, cult classic? Excuse me, I have an appointment with my floor to roll over it laughing like a maniac.
The first developer to publicly remove their game saying "I was in the Top 10 and ignored for X months" will probably do quite well off the publicity - and it might bring Valve out to say "erm - yeah - that guy - who??" :)
