I despise the quick-save mechanic in PC games...but I realize it's hard to get away from. As such, I started playing Skyrim without saving regularly... but because it's a Bethesda game my first Crash to Desktop happened to me only 20 minutes in... I've wound up quick saving very often.
Which has the unfortunate side-effect of quick-loading being very easy to do, if something bad happens. Though, whenever I end up in a situation where I want to quick load, I always consider if it really isn't something I should just accept and move on.
But... yeah, F9 is very easy to press.
