I like either dead = dead so you have to reload, or there being a really good reason why death has no hold over you, as in Torment or SpellForce. Take away death and you take away challenge in most games.
No... I meant: when you die, the game reloads from where you were last at: a battle or something else.
Bah... I wasn't being too clear. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
