What would it be?

I think I'd have to go with quest logs. I'm super disorganized and I've been trying to keep a to-do list but I always forget to add to it and update it. It would be great to have that all happen automatically.

What about yall hoodlums?

Being able to save anywhere at any time. Not only will I never make a mistake, I can do different things just to see each consequence.

well to be fair any kind of saving would be p. nice, even if it was just autosaving.

Quick Travel would be pretty sweet.

#9 Posted by MentalDisruption (1634 posts) -

A save system. If I could save and reload at any time in my life I'd be pretty damn happy.

#10 Posted by Jrinswand (1709 posts) -

Of all the things to choose, you chose quest logs? That's something that you could very easily make a reality with a pen, a piece of paper, and a little bit of self-discipline.

I'd probably choose quicksave/quickload. It'd be nice to know that I could just reload if I fucked something up or made a mistake or something.

Save just before going in to buy a lottery ticket.

Get and memorize numbers.

Load save.

Profit.

Honestly, I can't think of any better answer to this thread. Any outcome you don't like, you can reset it and try it differently as long as you save often. Never thought I'd hear about savecrawling through life.

Eh, I was trying to think of something that would be less reality shattering than most things but I will admit saving/loading never crossed my mind.

That all depends on if you remember everything you do after you revert to a previous save. If it follows game logic, you would lose everything you did, hence making your plan impossible. You have to realize that you would be the character in this situation, not the player. So if you revert to an older save, you would only know everything you've done up to that save.

Leveling up and Point allocation.

#21 Edited by LikeaSsur (1530 posts) -

Clear and permanent leveling up/allocation of skills.

AKA If I study enough, I should become smarter and stay smarter. Work out, and my physique levels up, so does my strength, coordination, etc.

Or maybe I don't care about my endurance right now, and I need the intelligence for a final. Let me respec! I'll pay the cost needed (usually it's just pocket chance anyway). You get the gist.

Quicksave and quickload, naturally.

Oh man, maybe we have been saving and reloading this whole time.....

#29 Posted by FrankieSpankie (228 posts) -

Definitely the ability to save whenever I want and reload from that moment.

i could be wrong but i think your thinking of Hindus or Jains

i wold classify new game plus a a reincarnation more then rebirth. Buddism dont belive in reincarnation well unless you a highly developed spiritual practitioner.

basically reincarnation is the rebirth of the soul and rebirth is a karmic measure of what you will be reborn as.

Not really. Quite a few games take place over several years without characters leveling up in correlation to their ages (Dragon Quest V, Final Fantasy VI, just about any Fire Emblem game (but 4 especially)).

Those are pretty different things though. One is a measure of time and one is a measure of progress. Unless you are measuring the progress of your life. That's pretty different than seeing a bar fill up as you read or work out.

Either way, you could still win the lottery. Even patience doesn't factor in if reloading means you don't remember it. As long as you've laid out the "play 'til I win" plan before starting the whole scheme.
That is, unless you pick the same numbers every single time. Really, it's a useless power if you can't remember anything because you'll most likely end up making the same decisions every time.

Questing! Having people come up to me with jobs all the time, wherever I went. I talk to someone and they have a job and I get money at the end of each one and a cool item. I would never be poor again. I might be missing a few limbs but I wouldn't be poor.

You know what, screw my earlier answer. New answer: combo meter.

Think about it.

#37 Posted by Raven10 (1782 posts) -

Yea, if I could remember what happened after my last save then quicksave/quickload would be great. If not, I'd go for regenerating health or extra lives.

#38 Posted by Zekhariah (697 posts) -

I'm going to say fast travel.

Reloading and infinite lives are interesting (and in some senses better), but I'm not sure they fit with the spirit of an in game convenience function.

The ability to kill someone and have no one ever mention it again, ever. Your girl spending a bit too much time with some guy? Shank him one and move away a couple feet to be in the clear. She'll never even notice that he's gone.

Better trophies/achievements.

Nothing is worse than playing a game, beating it and then only getting a handful (looking at you BF3). Wish Multi and Campaign had separate lists too, never touch multiplayer.

Portal Gun, not only can you use it for fast travel, breaking and entering, getting the tv remote without standing up, and traveling to the moon, but it also makes auto-fellatio so much easier.
