where i can get good tutorials about basic game design
 
i want to learn how to design games, i would like to have some free website where i can get some good tutorials, i think video tutorials would be best for learning ??

Learning about Game Theory would be useful for game designers: http://oyc.yale.edu/economics/game-t...ents/downloads

Other then that, you can try the GDC Vault for more talks, http://www.sirlin.net/ has some good stuff as well. Theory of fun book has been recommended by quite a few people to read.

South African game dev magazine. Has a feature where they interview puzzle game designers that should be useful

game studies articles by same guy who wrote Imaginary Games, a game studies book that seems pretty good in terms of digestiveness and author-knows-their-stuff-ness
http://www.kotaku.com.au/author/chris-bateman/

Brenda Brathwaite has a book, 10 challenges for game designers that has been recommended

A good post on gamasutra worth reading about problems teaching (and thus learning) game design:

Haven't actually listened to it yet, but GameProdigyDotCom video tutorials seem promising:
