Is 'save state' cheating?
I know it's an old topic, but I wonder if your opinions change with aging. For example as years passed I have less and less time to play games.
I donít think that save state are cheats.
Save state comes handy as I can play the game in 15 minutes blocks and in couple days I can finish game that otherwise I would play for 2-3 hours?! Who can spend 2-3 hours now days to complete the game?? Kids, wife, house, work and all other things that are happening now in our life are making sure we don't have any more that luxury.
Also not to forget that some games were insane, like required you to play for couple hours to finish the game without save point, code or any other means to make game finishable.
So what's your opinion?
