It sneaks up on you when you least expect.So wrapped up in the game that you don't bother to save thinking everything is fine,but then *FREEZE* setting you back oh so many minutes/hours. This has got to be one of the biggest "Fuck You" in gaming.. Sure there's an autosave, but thats not always dependable ( it's fucking autosave,why was the last 4hrs ago!!!). Most of my EXP with this problem accours in games such as : Bully, Every GTA, both Saints row, but it's not just those just those few. It can happen any game , you just don't see it coming. Games should have an autosave that activates at least every 10min ( with the option to still save manualy of course). "Banjo Kazooi N&B" is a great example of how it should work. I can play without the thought of "oh shit I should go save soon".Imagine game like WoW (okay?) example: You spend hrs grinding your ass off,so consumed you that saving never crosses your mind. All of a sudden "DISCONNECTED!..or some other reason " and now theres another hole in the wall ( I've done a few times, not gunna lie). Mabey you think " I shouldn't game for so long", yeah I could do that,but for me it's either I'm gaming hard or i'm not gaming at all. When I start a game up, I'm hell bent on either beating it or getting some gamer score. Mabey some day games will never freeze, or mabey the autosave will be put to full use (hell i'd settle for a reminder to save icon), but until that day...I've got to replay 2hrs of "Saints row 2"
