As the one of you who reads this has probably noticed by now, I have not really posted much new content recently. This is mostly due to the astronomical amount of coursework and applications I am currently going through.
There is, however, something I found through gamasutra. Something I really, really loved reading, which I will probably print and pin on a wall.
This is the No Twinkie Database. Ernest W. Adams, a game design lecturer at GDC (and founder of the International Game Developers Association) compiled through his years what he found to be game design faults into a simple, easy to browse list. It is both extremely instructive and entertaining to read. If you are into game design, you should definitely read it, then frame it or something.
