Annihilating the sanctity of saved games

AWESOMEoutof10's Andy Astruc had his LEGO Marvel Super Heroes save eaten by the mighty Galactus, but to him, that isn't much of a problem. Replaying titles can be beneficial, even! "That said, discovering the limitations of a game agreed to be rather bloody good — particularly when it comes to writing — is an interesting tidbit all on its own. And you never really can know what you’ll bring out of an experience until you try. Having all those completion trophies and exhaustive save files is nice for that warm fuzzy feeling of accomplishment, but they have the nasty potential to narrow a player’s focus to the point where you can miss anything that isn’t as explicit as a percentage. I’m not suggesting you should go right now and delete all your old save files, just that maybe if it did happen there could be some unexpected blessings amongst your inevitable cursing." (Industry, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes)
