    Create a new category called games. I think under settings option in your wordpress dashboard. Their is an option to make/edit a default category. Even I use wp but now my site is down so I cannot tell you exactly where under settings. I think it is under writing.

    Home Page:
    click NEW POST button when creating new post. (that's nearly in the top-middle portion of the dashboard)
    add title and add content...

    now before saving or publishing... on the lower right column, you will see the categories widget/module/window or whatever you want to call it. just check the boxes of categories that you want this post to appear... and uncheck the boxes that you DONT WANT this post to appear (especially the uncategorized category) if you don't want your post to be there.

    Then PUBLISH IT.

    i guess you already know how to add categories.

    Good tainted!

    Whenever I create A new WP Blog, One of the first things I do is change the
    "uncategorized" category to "General", OR somthing More related to my niche
