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

>> No.5363584

Before and after every encounter.

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

>> No.5364242

Never. Autosave is fine.

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.

>> No.5364272

I feel bad for your hdd

>> No.5364291

HD is cheap.

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.

>> No.5364401

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/

>> No.5365357

I savescum like crazy, but only reload if I die or put myself into unwinnable situation (for all games).

>> No.5368623

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.

>> No.5369881

Quicksaves were a mistake

>> No.5370179

I just mapped save and load to my mouse's side buttons. (mouse4, mouse5)

>> No.5370329

that just sounds like a disaster waiting to happen

>> No.5370340

When it autosaved.

>> No.5370345

please bind 'exit' to one of your mouse buttons.

>> No.5370382

>not binding save/load to left and right click
>not shooting with Enter and secondary firing with Z
