  • Here’s another “Let’s Talk” episode about gamer habits.

    Diagnosis:

    The “obsessive saving” habit occurs when the player of a video game, fearing their playable character’s death and/or being thrown back to the beginning of a level, becomes highly paranoid.
    As a result of this paranoia, if a save spot appears, the OCD player will use it.
    If however you can save at any point, the compulsion becomes stronger!

    I am the worst culprit of this ;)

    So does anyone else feel this way? Perhaps you have other habits you’d like to share? please leave a comment in the comment section below!

      That’s exactly what I do! Whenever I’ve sorted my inventory, obtained new items, before/after a boss fight, etc., I’m an obsessive saver too! I guess I just have a fear of losing progress and having to do things all over again, which has happened before. Hahah

      With so many ports from consoles I’ve finally gotten used to checkpoints, doesn’t mean I like them and much prefer to hit the ‘F?’ key whenever I want.

      Were you scarred too? 
      I played Rayman 2 through once without saving at all, I was so into I guess I just forgot haha! The last level I was killed! I was so mad! But it WAS my own fault >.<'
      I saved every two second ever since lol

      I’ll change something then save again… if you look through my saves there are fifty all timed seconds after each other :p

      Ahhh checkpoints and auto saves are definitely a BIG thumbs up in my book!
      Although when I discovered that on most games you can save at any point (on top of the auto save) I fell right back into this habit >.<'

      Seriously, I save EVERYWHERE. Especially in Zelda games. But one time, in Skyward Sword, I see a save point, and think: “Meh, saved enough in this temple. Let’s open that chest first.* Next room: “WHY HELLO THERE MINIBOSS!” :C
