    If there is one thing that I'm most paranoid about when playing a game, it's losing my progress. For as long as I can remember, I've obsessed myself over saving games multiple times consecutively, because the one time that's enough to actually save the game, isn't enough to convince me that I will be in the same place that I was before shutting down a console. Do you go through this as well?

    Wherever I am Needed
    When I first discovered emulation I had this problem with save states. All of a sudden I could save
    anywhere, so for some reason I felt the need to save EVERYWHERE. Like, multiple times.

    I finally got over it while playing one of the Mega Man Battle Network games. I dont remember the specifics,
    I ended up doing something I wasnt supposed to but my save state didnt go back far enough so I had to use my actual save which
    was near the beginning of the game

    With emulators I usually do it twice with quick ALT+F9 just in case.
    But then again i was usually obsessed with quick save that so much I did it every few seconds... it was so bad.
    Normal games I do it once, sometimes i check by seeing if it was there in the load section but that was only when i felt i did alot and was afraid to loose it all.
    Games like Half-life 2 asked just before you quit and i usally just clicked yes save the game
