Far Cry was the first game I recall playing on PC that had checkpoint saves.

Even Far Cry 2 on the PC has a quick save feature.

God, that game was torture. Wouldn't of been so bad if you had a manual save system.

Yes I miss proper quick saving in games. Checkpoints are just frustrating.

Actually it's the opposite for me OP, I grew up on jRPGs that could only be saved at save points. Soooo, no actually I don't think consoles are responsible for checkpoints.
