Don't Go More Than 10-15 Minutes Without Saving
If Fallout 4 is your first Bethesda game, heed this warning.
Bethesda's games are extremely ambitious but they're also plagued with bugs and problems. Fallout 4 problems are still rampant and it's difficult to predict if and when you might run into one. And that's why you need to be extremely careful.
Don't go long stretches without saving. If you do, and you run into a problem, you'll lose tons of real time. And that's never good, especially if you're old (like me) and you no longer have unlimited time to devote to games like Fallout 4.
I save at least once every 10 to 15 minutes. I typically save more than that but that's because Skyrim (and its problems) scarred me for life. Make this a habit and you're less likely to endure a long lasting headache. Trust me.
