Worth Reading

Lost Garden has turned into a rather substantial archive of game design thoughts. In order to help you find essays that you are interested in, I’ve finally performed a bit of house cleaning and tagged all 200+ posts. Go forth and explore!

Quest: Which essays are “Worth Reading”?
I’m looking for the essays that you found to be more influential on your thinking about games. I’d like to bubble those to the top of the site by marking a handful with the Worth Reading tag. I’ve tagged a few, but I’d love to hear your thoughts.
