Hello ladies and gentlemen! This is Medium’s collection dedicated to games. By definition, this one is going to be a lot of fun. I will also be running a second collection covering movies, TV, comics, music and whatever else that catches my fancy, called Geek Empire. Be sure to check that out as well.

Who am I? I am Stu Horvath. I run a site called Unwinnable, write for a bunch of places like Wired and Paste and, now, I shall be your humble curator of geek culture content here at Medium.


I am looking for stories that are current without being newsy, analytical without being reviews and grounded in personal experience without being the sort of creative non-fiction that is the Unwinnable specialty.

My favorite thing in the world is being with a group of friends at a bar or at dinner and getting into those heated debates that are the product of strong opinions and a wee bit of vino. Some folks do that with politics, but I like talking about games that way. That is the vibe I am hoping to establish here: passionate, smart, immediate and illuminating.

So, enough about me, let’s talk about games. What are you playing lately?
