assuming you are a normal person who doesn't obsess with scrapping all progress every tme your spotted in some vainglorious quest for perfection
I sort of do? I mean, I don't reset once I get caught, but I do bugger off to a corner immediately when I am caught and wait for the alerts to disappear entirely. And if I die, I punish myself by loading my last save instead of continuing. I am that strict with Metal Gear.
Well that's probably more than most people do for sure. Although, I've scrapped hours of progress in games before over trivial things.
