Welcome to the Week of Geek

In an effort to show to the world that being geeky is a positive, healthy and mighty damn fun thing to do with your life, we at GamesRadar are dedicating next week to being as uber-nerdy as we can with an official Week of Geek. Going way above and beyond our usual level of insightful geekery, we're following up Shark Week (opens in new tab) with five days of the most unashamedly dorky, puristic and anally-retentive content we can come up with.

Every one of us is a geek. But don't go decrying that statement. The wrongly-maligned term is actually a compliment inferring a certain level of passion, knowledge and enjoyment of a particular aspect of life. The falsely negative connotations are merely a device of the world's knuckle-scraping jocks and bubble-headed cheerleaders, conceived as a way to take potshots at those of us who do interesting things that they can not. You know, like reading and speaking in sentences and stuff.

During the Week of Geek you'll discover our darkest, nerdiest passions. You'll see us pick pedantic holes in everything. You'll learn all kinds of obscure things about all kinds of obscure things you never even knew you wanted to know anything about. And you'll love it. It's going to be revealing. It's going to be lavishly nit-picky. And it's going to be fun. Who's in? Check out the complete schedule below.
