No game puts you back 10-15 mins. Atleast not these days w.r.t console ports. What it does though, is put you back in the beginning of a fight sequence which IMO is pretty good so that you can get the continuity and feel as it is a complete sequence. Now if you quicksave, then it's a terrible tragedy if it's a firefight and you're in the middle of a mess. You kill 2 guys, F5, jump to cover, F5, Poke ur head out and shoot, miss, F9, reshoot, kill, F5....that is just utter nonsense and it feels like shit. As i mentioned earlier, the best savegame system was in ME3 and all games must incorporate the same IMO.Opposite is true for me, nothing takes me out of the game more than dying, being put back 10-15 minutes and having to re-do the same section over and over, the flow of the game and story become non-linear, imagine having to watch the same part of a movie or read the same part of a book, over and over...it makes for extremely bad immersion.
