What do you think is the best way to save game progress? Do you think save points(the ability to save only at a programmed location) is the best way to record progress? Or is being able to save anywhere and anytime you want the best way to record progress? Tell me ehat you prefer.
For me, I much prefer saving at anytime and anywhere and leaving off from that exact place; the way that you save your progress in the Pokemon series, from the Start menu. The main character carries around a diary then stops to write down what they've done.
I'd even take it a step further in mine, you'd be able to save in the middle of battle, and there'd be a invincible forcefield around you so the enemy cant harm you when you try to resume(if it isnt a turn-based game) :D
