Save Scumming is always a problem.
Loading means that the game and the player drifting apart.
What if I want (sometimes) to create new rules when playing any tabletop game ?
Why shouldn't I ? Because it's not written in the book ? Because I'm not playing the game as it was created ?
Who care except me ? (and those playing with me)
And who cares if I'm cheating when playing a gamebook with my fingers to remember where I was before I die ?
This is the same with video game.
As soon as it doesn't affect ANYONE except the player that CHOOSE to savescum... Why should it be a problem ? Because a few players can't control themselves ?
I'm still waiting the good arguments... At the moment it looks like savescum is not really a problem except in a few heads.
