The Ontological Geek (2010−2017) was a website for people who believe that popular culture is more than just entertainment. Founded originally to deal with videogames, OntoGeek eventually grew to deal with all kinds of pop culture and art, though videogames remained its primary focus.
Games, movies, books, and comics aren’t just works existing in a vacuum; sometimes, they connect to us by reflecting our hopes and fears, our identities, our beliefs, our history, and our future. In other cases, they fail to do so and leave us feeling alienated. OntoGeek was a website about all of those things.
