First dead space 3 they got rid of the save points now this game got rid of them. What gives? Do people really hate them that much? I personally love them. I mean are they just trying to appeal to the masses?

Its not appealing to the masses, its just more convenient. Auto saves are quick and happen while you are playing, so it doesn't break the flow of the gameplay. While playing God of War games I didn't save until I was about to turn the console off, because I hated stopping the groove I was in just to sit through a save menu.

The only reason save points are and could be useful is if you want to load and start over from a certain point instead of from your last check point if you die.

It auto saves.


Also to the other poster I guess I can see it working in a ga,e like this but I think they should have kept them in dead space.
