For the serious discussion and analysis of games played on a computer, board, field or any other interactive media.
subreddits related to r/ludology
For topics related to the design of games for interactive entertainment systems - video games, board games, tabletop RPGs, or any other type. /r/GameDesign is not a subreddit about general game development, nor is it a programming subreddit. This is a place to talk about Game Design and what it entails. Use this community to network, discuss crafting rulesets and general game design, and share game design tips with other game designers. Designers of all experience levels are welcome!
For all things related to critical analysis of video games. Feel free to post links to Youtube or any other site with an in-depth look at a particular game, series, genre, or even a basic element of all gaming (for example, RNG, level design, player flow, etc). Video is the preferred format, but text and audio are fine too! Share videos that provide new insight or a close-up look at anything gaming-related!
DepthHub gathers the best in-depth submissions and discussion on Reddit. You can use [the DepthHub](http://www.reddit.com/user/Lapper/m/depthhub) as an alternative front page with high quality discussion and inquiry. For more on the theory of DepthHub, [read this post from our founder](http://redd.it/bkd0n).
GameDevClassifieds is a place where game development studios, indies, and hobbyists can find talent in the game industry. Whether it's programming, art, design, audio, music, writing, voice, business, or legal, use this subreddit to post ads that help connect you with those who have the talent you need to make the next great game! Also, if you're a developer, feel free to post ads that point to your online portfolio, or submit your name and information to the developer list in the wiki!
A subreddit for games descended from Rogue - a sub-genre of RPG games involving things like permadeath and randomized levels. This community is mostly centered around traditional roguelike games which are turn-based, grid-based and single character focused, but discussion of "roguelike-like" games is still allowed.
A subreddit for really great, insightful articles and discussion. Please follow reddiquette, and READ THE ARTICLE before voting or discussing. Downvotes should only be used if something doesn’t contribute to intelligent discussion, not just because you disagree. Please use the report button if you see something that doesn’t belong.
*Header Image by /u/clarque_ * /r/Gaming4Gamers is an attempt to create a different gaming subreddit. By creating a middle ground between the purely-for-fun subreddits and the more serious ones, we aim to build a community based on open-minded discussions, camaraderie above competition, and a shared love of video games.
**Theory of Reddit** is a mildly navel-gazing space for inquiring into what makes Reddit communities work and what we in a community can do to help make it better. This subreddit should focus on data, issues, solutions, or strategies that could be reasonably addressed or implemented **by users and moderators**, not admins.
/r/indiedev is for indie developers and gamers to share whatever they want (be it game development, their favorite games or just some cool images, GIFs or music from an indie game) in a casual community-run environment. It supplements places like /r/gamedev and /r/indiegaming with content that those subreddits can't provide. But of course if you're an indie gamer looking for things about indie gaming, this place also welcomes you. After all, every gamer is a potential indie developer!
The goal of /r/Games is to provide a place for informative and interesting gaming content and discussions. Submissions should be for the purpose of informing or initiating a discussion, not just with the goal of entertaining viewers. Memes, comics, funny screenshots, arts-and-crafts, etc. will be removed.
