* ''Franchise/DragonQuest'' games also use this when you're in the field; you can only save properly in towns.

* VirtualConsole for {{Wii}} can suspend some games. It can suspend UsefulNotes/{{NES}} and UsefulNotes/{{SNES}} games, but not [[UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo64}} N64]] games. This feature is less than the save states in other UsefulNotes/{{emulat|ion}}ors, because it prevents SaveScumming.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' introduced suspend saves when the series moved to the Gameboy Advance. For those three games only, the game updated the one quicksave any time you did ''anything'' of note, which was both very convenient and almost impervious to SaveScumming. ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemShadowDragon Shadow Dragon]]'' has a variant with mid-chapter save points that can be reloaded indefinitely (but they can only be used once before disappearing). Suspend Saves can also be used at any time in [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Radiant Dawn]] in the hardest difficulty (on lower difficulties, they're just normal saves).

* ''VideoGame/EtrianOdyssey'': The Millennium Girl features this as the only way to save while in a dungeon. The player can hard-save in town, but can only use the suspended save while exploring.
* This feature was added to all of the handheld [[UpdatedRerelease ports]] and [[VideoGameRemake remakes]] of the NES-era ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games.
* ''Franchise/DragonQuest'' games also use this when you're in the field; you can only save properly in towns.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Nostalgia}}'', you can chose to quick save. Then you are asked to turn the system off, and it deletes the save when you choose "Continue" instead of "Load".
* This was available in all versions but the PAL release of ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireDragonQuarter''.
* ''VideoGame/ResonanceOfFate''. Places to save properly are rare, but this and the ability to retry battles for a nominal fee prevent that from being too much of a problem.

* [[HarderThanHard Survival Mode]] in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' [[CheckPointStarvation disables manual saving and only autosaves when you rest at a bed]], but still keeps an exit save for when you quit the game. Loading the exit save does not delete it, it will just be inaccessible unless your game crashes--or you deliberately forced the program to close, if you want to cheat--and replaced by the next exit save you make.

* Some ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' games, including both ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow'' games and ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin'', include a suspend save feature. This also resets the enemies in an area when you restart, which in ''Portrait'' helps getting {{Randomly Drop|s}}ped items in the BonusDungeon, as that area doesn't allow {{Backtracking}}.

* ''VideoGame/FTLFasterThanLight'' includes a save & quit feature, which has the further limitation of not being usable during a battle.



* ''MarioGolf'' allowed a suspend save at any time, which could only be used once. The main game data was only saved upon finishing a course or minigame.

Added DiffLines:

* The story mode for ''VideoGame/DragonFinSoup'' allows traditional saves that can be performed and loaded at whim, unless [[FinalDeath playing on Hardcore]]. But the other two modes more closely emulate the classic {{Roguelike}} structure, and thus only allow suspended saves.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/LuminousArc2'' features an interesting version. The game allows a single save slot during battles, and it can be saved and reloaded at whim. At first, this would appear to allow SaveScumming, but only to a certain extent: hit percentage outcomes are determined by the {{RNG}} prior to the player even taking a turn, so if a given character misses a target, reloading the same turn will result in that character ''always'' missing that target. The player can still decide to take actions based on the results of that turn, though - but [[BoringButPractical only if the player saves before every single turn]].
* ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' has this feature enabled in certain difficulties. In Ironman mode, the game deletes the old and creates a new suspend save whenever you take an action as well as when you quit the game.

* This feature was added to the American release of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask''. If the player doesn't want to go through the entire three-day timeline in one sitting, they have the option of saving and exiting at an owl statue, to resume later. The only way to save one's progress in the game permanently is to go back in time to the beginning of the GroundhogDayLoop. This was changed in the [[UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS 3DS]] [[VideoGameRemake remake]] to make the owl statues permanent {{Save Point}}s, and the only way to save the game.
