This was mentioned by IainPeregrine in the "concept of difficulty" topic, but after watching these I really think they need more exposure. So here is a topic, focused on the playlist of videos titled "Extra Credits" on Youtube. There are 7 seasons of videos so far, and they are all rife with information on game design. I've learned a lot and I'm not even all the way done watching all of the videos.
Here is the playlist for season 1.
You can find the other seasons in the "Playlist" section of that Youtube channel.
Watch them. They will change the way we young developers look at making games, and influence more thought-out, well-developed, engaging games here on BYOND.
I look forward to seeing what some of you have to say after watching these.
