Skyrim: Does It Autosave Enough?

In my last post I talked about having started working through Skyrim. Now, over a week later, I’ve finished the main arc of the game and a few of the side missions too, and I’m moving onto the DLC missions. I can’t say I’m doing these in any particular order, or even whether I’m mixing […]

In my last post I talked about having started working through Skyrim. Now, over a week later, I’ve finished the main arc of the game and a few of the side missions too, and I’m moving onto the DLC missions.

I can’t say I’m doing these in any particular order, or even whether I’m mixing them in with the side quests, because, quite frankly, I just can’t tell.

What I’m working on at the minute is the vampire arc. Simply put, it’s been pissing me off. The reason I feel this way is because when I feel that I’m coming to the end of a quest (having to find Auriels Bow, and need to take out some Falmer/Elf dude) I find that there are a few waves of attacks by some pawns, which increase in strength and/or numbers each wave, before moving on to the main man himself. All well and good, I’ve played enough games to realise that this is usually what happens. BUT, and I cannot stress this enough, I would like to think that when there’s a cut scene between the peons and the master that there would be an autosave take place. 

You know where I’m going with this. That’s not what seems to happen at all. No. So having taken me a few attempts to get through a few waves of ‘easy’ enemies, which involved me dying…. countless times, I get to the last guy, who happens to be a Mage as well, conjuring argonauts behind that my faithful aid fail to deal with, meaning I die again. But that than sending me down to the cut scene, I go… Right. Back. To the. Beginning. 

So, yes, this post is more of a rant than anything. But it would like to know people’s opinions too. Do you agree that the in built autosaves are too infrequent, or the opposite, and I should really make more use of the quick save feature?
