Or, have the best of both worlds. Make a set of AUTOSAVE OPTIONS. Let us select when we want the game to do so. While F5 is just a key away, it's an interface issue. I prefer to focus on playing and not on managing the saves so much. Being accustomed to autosave on rest and area transitions, I expect the game to do that. Others want to do it all manually - hence I recommend AUTOSAFE OPTIONS.

Thanks for hearing me out!
