Here is another Gamer Habits video. Todays habit? “Obsessive Saving!”

Now we all know as hardcore gamers that there are certain shared tendencies and similarities. Whether its turning up to work with a ‘gaming hangover’ or swinging the controller around to aid in movement – we all do it and should take pride in our habits!

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


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!
