  Bumping just to add a couple I found, in case anyone wants to learn AS.

Pong
2D Third Person Shooter

Pong - Great for Beginners, and involves a bit of Maths too!

2D Third Person Shooter - Unfinished, but involves a bit of Trigonometry, which is useful.

As I said before, not everyone will make use of these, but I'm sure there are / will be people that want these tutorials, and so before I forgot about them, I posted here. :)

  I guess... Yet, it doesn't mean video games, which means that someone excersising ludology could just as well study how a card game haves an impact on humans...

  Actually, "Ludology", better know as "Game Studies", isn't the study of video games, but games and their influence in general. While ludology was a rarely exercised study, extensive catalogs and books where published as early as 1900. The interest in ludology boomed in the early 1980s, following the interest in video games. Today, ludology is mostly seen as the study of video games.

Ludology can be cut into three different sections:

Social Science.
-Studying how games affect people and cultures.

Humanities.
-Studying the deeper meaning in games.

Industry and engineering.
-Understanding how games are developed.


Blame Wikipedia!
