I don't think it's true for most people. For example, I only use it to skip some long repetitive scenes or things like that. Of course, some people use it for "cheating", like saving during battles, and stuff.

Yeah, I think it depends on how it's used. Sometimes I save it befor battles in FF games to make sure I get a . . . desireable outcome. That's like cheating :heh: But then without the Savestates all you'd have to do is restart the game, though from farther back. It's kinda like that ;)

it will depend how you use it.
if you just save before a boss, which is hard and you took so much time to get here before the last save i think it´s ok

but if you just keep saving after you deal some damage to the boss, and so on, and keep loading and saving like freak, sure it´s the worst cheat ever.

i personally think it´s useful for games that often crashes with emulators, and you have playes about an hour without a save point and BANG! damn it.

it is very true in my case, i rarely use savestates only if it is the only way to save. Another thing is when i'm playing, suddenly i wanted to do something in real life, :fart: then it's time for the super handy savestate feature.:D :D :D

When there are branches in the story line (e.g. decision to save Kid or not), I use savestate so that I won't have to replay the game once I beat it (it's just a lot more convienent than actual saving)

That's true. I hate when I'm playing and my pc crashes and I lose everything I played for hours.

hmm... savestate is a bit like cheating....depends on the games u play.

U can really win a strategy game very fast if u use savestate. Save b4 u attack, if u fail to hit the enemy, load the savestate and attack again ....this will 100% make ur life easier...but it will reduce the fun to play a strategy game...

for rpg, savestate really very helpful,u dont need to go back to certain save point to save ur games especially when u r half way in a maze or ....


Anyway, savestate is a cheat in my opinion, since the games programmers dont expect us to save the game anywhere, and thats y the save point locations were created.

yes, i guess it also depends on the type of game, say for example MGS, i mean using savestates all the time on this game IMHO will really make the game cheap.:)

I only used it in two parts: right before Snake's been captured and during the REALLY long movie (you know the one I'm talking about, the longest movie in the game).
