Tell me if you are what I would call a true gamer and you would play the game as Bethesda , IMO, ideally mean it should be played (a virtual-reality life adventure), and enjoy the nail-biting feeling of the possibility of really having to accept the consequences of your decisions, good or bad. and with no re-loads, if at all possible. I believe such an approach does add an extra depth of enjoyment ( allowing, of course, that there are times when you cannot prevent getting killed, or the game will crash etc., and you do have to go back to a previous save). However - to each his (or her) own belief or opinion.
Maybe you have already d/loaded a list of cheats to enable you to shoot thru' with unlimited ammo, extra health, zillions of gold, and a bag of buckets to put over every man, woman and child you want to steal from. ( I must confess I laughed my head off when I watched that on Youtube).
So - what exactly is your own personal game style?
On a scale of 1 to 10 how would you rate yourself.
Approximately: 9 to 1O for deciding to bite the bullet and treat it like you only have one shot? No cheats. Stand by your decisions, misguided or not, etc. and see thru' the effects, maybe to your pleasant surprize; maybe to your dismay. Your belief: "This will be MY true virtual-reality adventure."
6 to 9 for needing to re-load only when you make a really big ****up? Otherwise you will connive if necessary, steal, lie, kill, run to save your miserable life, do whatever you will to survive, heroically or cowardly. Your motto:"I am a realist - That's how life should be. ."
3 to 6 if you will enable SOME basic cheats just to give you an edge.(After all, no-one is looking over your shoulder to confront you - it's only a game). Your opinion: "This really is only a game so - what the heck? Let's have a ball."
1 to 5 if you decide to be one of the first, if not the first to blast your way thru' the Main Story using every trick and cheat available just to be able to say : " I finished the game in xx straight hours. How about that? Your only concern: " THAT is what really turns me on."
