Things like player pathing, or point-of-interest placing. I've picked up a few books. But they mostly talk about what I should consider putting into a level, or how to get inspiration. But I'm kindof looking for things like "why levels are built the way they are". Right now I end up just looking at the games I like and trying to emulate them. Which is a good start I guess. But without a formal design context, I would miss some of the 'reasons' things might have been placed the way they are.
That is a broad question! There could be almost infinite possibilities concerning what reasons are for making something like this or that. So the idea about creativity is to open your mind and get fresh ideas, bring something to the table that others didn't! Don't be afraid of experiment and practice! Those are great links. I realize that the question may sound a bit broad.
But i guess the point im trying to make was to hear how pro designers map out a level with more intent. I can be creative and come up with stuff to fill a level.
And from "experience" i can see why something like a vendor might be next to a bank or whatever. But im looking to go a little bit deeper. More like 'Practices that the Pros use". And honestly those links are a great start. No book as I should really read more, but I found this YouTube video to be worth a watch. GMTK is a great series. They cover all sorts of topics, including level design.
My level design professor was the lead level designer on Simpsons hit and run and red dead redemption, and this is the book he recommends to us. It's excellent. The author also has a second book focusing on case studies. Aside from being an unparalleled book on game design that book is a pleasure to read because Steve Swink's 'Game Feel' is supposed to be good. And the book 'level up' not sure the author. But I would recommend going to the gdc channel on YouTube and watching some of the videos there.
I'm sure there are some great level design videos there. Level Up by Scott Rogers is great! I've had my tattered copy for years and it's by far one of the best game dev books I've read. He also goes over a lot more things than level design, so I'd highly recommend it. Can't tell you if it's good because I didn't use it.
Don't know about books but game makers toolkit on YouTube has a few good videos about level design. This is a really great talk about level design for storytelling and clear navigation. Meanwhile, one of my favorite tips about level design is setting up decision points.
This is just one tool of course; there are a lot of things to consider when designing levels, but this is a useful little non-obvious way to spice up a level. Create places where the player has to choose which way to go, and there isn't a clear right answer because both directions have pros and cons. A classic example is when the high road bypasses a bunch of enemies, while the low road has several enemies and an item pickup. Avoiding the enemies has obvious appeal, but then you also skip over the pickup.
So I know I'm answering my own question. And many of you guys have provided great responses. But I stumbled on this, and figured I'd share.
Any books or discussions would be great. Want to add to the discussion? Post a comment! Create an account. I personally follow their CS: GO mapping tutorials. Those are really resourceful! That is brilliant. That one is , newer is

Viktor v. A book on level design comprehensive and relevant enough that I can recommend it to professional colleagues and students alike. The industry has needed a book like this for years. Kremers leaves no stone unturned, touching upon the relationship between level design and the game's lighting, audio, story, artificial intelligence, mechanics, puzzles. It's a truly grand task to take in the domain of 'level design' and try to wrap it up into a book of manageable length. Kremers has succeeded in doing so, unafraid to mix in the relevant considerations of game design, art, and psychology where applicable. This book covers relevant concepts and theories behind designing levels.
Good or bad level design can make or break any game, so it is surprising how little reference material exists for level designers. Beginning.
