How often do you save in the Half-Life games?
Once every chapter? Once every loading screen? Or just whenever you feel like it?
>>

Before and after every encounter.

(doom, quake, duke, blood, other old school fps fans etc )

That's totally not true.

the list could go on
>>
>>5363580
i usually just save after i reach a first aid station or right before a particularly nigger encounter and use autosaves for the rest

half life 1/expansions: incredibly frequently
half life 2/expansions: never
>>
Never. Autosave is fine.
>>
>>5363580
I once savescummed so hard I finished the entire game without losing any health.

(aside from that bit where you're forced to fall down the pipe and smash through the table)

I'm talking re-mapping the quicksave/quickload to z and c for convenience.

>>5364257
I feel bad for your hdd
>>
>>5364272
HD is cheap.

>>5363580
Learning to ignore the quick save button was one of the best things that happened to me. It made me appreciate exploration and risk management.

The first Medal of Honor did worse to the fps scene than half life ever did as a whole. HL has varied enemies and kick ass sci fi guns. I have used my deductive reasoning to come to the conclusion that you are a tasteless retard. By hating good games and being a brainless contrarian it is you who should return to /v/
>>
>>5363580
I savescum like crazy, but only reload if I die or put myself into unwinnable situation (for all games).
>>
if i was low on health i'd hit quicksave after every enemy or group of enemies killed. Otherwise i just kept going with reckless abandon.
>>
Quicksaves were a mistake
>>
>>5364257
I just mapped save and load to my mouse's side buttons. (mouse4, mouse5)
>>
>>5370179
that just sounds like a disaster waiting to happen
>>
>>5363580
When it autosaved.
>>
>>5370179
please bind 'exit' to one of your mouse buttons.
>>
>>5370179
>not binding save/load to left and right click
>not shooting with Enter and secondary firing with Z
