Edited by Krimm: 4/10/2013 5:44:58 PMThere's also PA TV's Extra Credits if you want a more informal discussion of game mechanics and design. The episode about balancing for skill was particularly enlightening for me. http://www.penny-arcade.com/patv/episode/so-you-want-to-be-a-game-designer Also check out Sequelitis; while not from a game designer, it still brings up some really insightful points about how game design can affect sequels to great games. http://www.youtube.com/show/sequelitis RIDIN' ON CARS! *MEEDLY MEEDLY MEEDLY MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!*
Haven't gotten a chance to read, thanks to classes, but i'm always happy to find a good read about game design.
