Welcome to Play Time

If you like games, you’ve come to the right place


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?
