I stumbled onto a blog by Marc-André at http://exludis.tumblr.com/
He had some great media and thoughts and ideas I believe are worth spreading:
His post on obsession and passion (the original item that drew me to his blog in the first place) was thought provoking: http://exludis.tumblr.com/post/23227103235/from-passion-to-obsession
and the two games he found inspiring I found intriging as well: http://exludis.tumblr.com/post/22778740998/two-inspirations
Ira Glass on Storytelling [but this applies to any creative venture]: http://vimeo.com/24715531
Jesse Shell on information flow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y92-vkyHKbY
That leaves very little else not linked that he has shared on game development... Just go check em out and form your own opinion...
I post in the spirit of sharing something I found interesting, but I really don't think I am will add anything to the overall discussion... at this point in time...
