    I thought this would be best suited for EOF since no good will come from this.

    I lost 2 hours of Kirby TD (100% completion of one world and then some) with a GW by stupidly tempting fate and not periodically exiting to save. :rolleyes:

    So what progress have you lost?

    All progress in GTA: Chinatown Wars. Several times over. A later patch fixed the issue, but I never bothered to play the game again.

    I was abusing the save state function on my DSTWO when suddenly the DS froze. The flashcard didn't work after that until I put the microSD into my computer and found out that it had corrupted and needed a format. I lost all my DS saves that day.

    Ever since then I make backups of my save files from my DS and even my PSP.

    Losing progress is one of the few reasons I hate playing Disgaea on consoles. Never again...

    I remember turning off my Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow game when the "DO NOT TURN OFF" screen still hadn't disappeared. I don't know why I did it. Anyway, my save got corrupted just before the last boss. I had to replay the entire game in the next days to get back to that point and finish the game :(

    Not on 3DS, but I exited Super Mario Advance 4 without saving after completing a couple of annoying e-Levels because I forgot that this game didn't save automatically.

    With the exception of the SMA4 story (maybe?) I feel very fortunate. I guess I am leery of playing RPGs with my GW (at least until I get a good 32G microSD).
