I always exit the game and then shut it down. I'm always afraid that if I shut it off while still in the game, it might corrupt the save.

I quit to the game's title screen, but I don't bother dashboarding.

As long as the game is not saving, the save will not be corrupted.
It irritates me when people say RPG games.

How is doing all that quicker than just holding down the Guide, pressing up twice, and then A? Or even just walking up to it and hitting the power button?

When I'm done with the 360, I just hold the guide button and shut it down. Going to the dashboard first serves absolutely zero benefit and it's slower.
Note to GFAQs mods: You do an absolutely terrible job at modding trolling. Get better at it and give harsher punishments for it.

it doesn't really matter how you do it, just make damn sure it's not saving when you turn it off.

I'll make sure to quite to a menu or title screen in a game because of the aforementioned risk of file corruption if turning off in game but either way I've no real routine.. whichever is quickest at the time, be it pressing the power off button, going to dash or just holding guide to get turn off option.

THERE IS NO RISK!!!! Why people waste time quitting to the menu/dashboard is beyond me.
