There's this indie game developer who tried to come up with a new original idea for a game every day for a year - and he put all his thoughts on his website. +200 ideas so far, if I remember correctly.

I don't remember the URL to his site, or the name of the author. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

I think you mean Squidi's 300 Game Mechanics..

I wonder how many of those have gotten actual use. I know the light/dark idea (his first 3 posts) got implemented as fairly popular flash games, but I don't know if he did that or someone else did.

Patrick Curry did "A new game idea every week" a few years ago:
