6 Amazing Save Points in Video Games

Twinfinite writes:

"As diverse as video games are nowadays, one characteristic that runs through them is the player’s ability to save data. Even in games built around permanent death and ‘one-and-done’ progression, there is still information stored for the next playthrough. Early attempts at saving on consoles were bold, but either flawed, complicated, or both (SEE: Zelda, Legend of). As games have evolved, so has the process of recording player data." (Dead Rising, Far Cry 2, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy X, Metroid, Retro)

Can someone please just post the list? Twinfinite on a mobile browser is a nightmare.

6. Moogles - Final Fantasy IX
5. Ship - Metroid Prime
4. Bathrooms - Dead Rising Series
3. One-Stop Save-and-Shop - Final Fantasy X
2. Safe Houses - Far Cry 2
1. One Last Save Point - Final Fantasy VII

I think the Bonfire in Dark Souls should have been on there. I don't know if it was technically a save point since the game had an autosave feature. It was, however, a holy-sh!t-I-can-finally-breath e-point. That's enough of a save for me.

What about Ico? The two of them sleeping together is so cute!

I feel like there are a lot of games with better saving systems. I didn't even think about Ico until I read your post and it is better than anything on that list.

Geeeee learn to make lists on one single webpage! Nobody wants to click through 7 articles on mobile.

On subject, an all time favorite of mine is the cactus that writes a personal diary in Legend of Mana. So, so cute!
