>>
Yes.

Only legit use of save states is saving when you've just saved with the game (if it even has saving)
>>
If you're playing a game that does not have saves, and you're using them as legit save points as to emulate a saving system since today a saving system is required, then no.

>>285755714
I used to abuse save states every second when I was a kid but it's really just ruining the game for yourself unless you don't really care about playing the game the way you're supposed to.

I had a friend in highschool who beat mike tyson by savescumming after every punch he landed and acted like it was the greatest accomplishment ever when he finally wo

I save scum through SMT. I have no regrets.

I beat Castlevania 3 on an emulator that had a rewind function, and I'd just rewind a second or two every time I died
