Subtrope of SuspiciousVideogameGenerosity, in this case letting you know you ''should'' save before (and/or after) the rough patch. Indeed, for most games where saves are usually automatic or handled by checkpoint, the appearance of ''any'' save prompt qualifies for the GenreSavvy player.

player. Some may even opt to create a new save file for a quick and easy failsafe for SaveScumming.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' give you the option to save at the end of each chapter. Since there's usually a significant cutscene at the start and end of each chapter, this is just a good idea, especially on the (three-disc) 360 version, which has you swap discs after chapters 4 and 9 (notably, the disc swap happens after you save, just like the PS1 games).

* The PlayStation 1-era ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games did this at the end of each disc, which were almost always immediately following major plot events (though a very obvious reason for it is simply a failsafe in case something goes wrong during the disc swap.)

So you're playing a game and you reach a critical point in the story. Something bad happened, and things got worse. Maybe the hero just took a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown from the BigBad, or [[EarthShatteringKaboom maybe the world has sustained]] [[ForMassiveDamage massive damage]]. Perhaps the time has come to take immediate action to stop the BigBad from carrying out his plot.

** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', if you call Mei Ling after fending off Sniper Wolf for the first time, she will mention she has a bad feeling and that it's important you save. Sure enough, [[spoiler:immediately afterwards is the interrogation scene, and as Ocelot helpfully points out, there's no continue option if you die, so if you didn't save before the fight, get ready to do it all over again.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series, this happens after every investigation or trial scene. It gets more notable when it happens in the middle of a trial, usually when there's a recess. More notable, still, when it happens in the middle of a trial and a recess HASN'T been called. Unnecessary because you can save at absolutely any point in time with very few exceptions, but it still lets you know something' going to come up.
