it's already given that pretty much all games nowadays have an auto save feature.. It saves our progress on any given game.. But let's say out of nowhere an unknown game decides to omit a save feature, would you still dare to play it, or have the will to finish it even?

just like the games of old where upon seeing a game over screen, you'd have to repeat everything the way from start of the game, chapter or a level without saving, using passwords or codes to bypass everything.

Depends on the game, really.

like a platformer? Sure.

But a game like Uncharted or Halo? Nah.

Dead rising has a save feature. Coincidentally I'm at 6 days and roughly 12 hours into my infinite run on the first Dead Rising as we speak. That mode, however, has no save progress.

The game encourages you to restart from the beginning, retaining previous experience.

I beat rygar on NES.

I think that answers your question.

game was ~4 hours long with no save system at all, no continues.

Um. I've been playing video games since the '80s. Games without save features, or even passwords... Yeah. Been there, done that.

I know a lot of people on these boards won't like it though. Generally these games are made to be beaten in a handful of hours max. People on here whine if a game is 20 hours.
Gamecenter CX is awesome.
