Games like Pokemon, long ass RPGs need to support cloud saves.

All that progress down the drain if something happens to the console.

Who is in agreement? Don't support titles without cloud saves. Your time is important and losing it all due to no backups is terrible

I don't pay for online and so don't care, I can't back up no matter what.

That's an excuse. ALL GAMES need to have cloud saves.

Get rare Pokemon.
Trade it for common.
Load save.
Repeat.

Pokemon games love doing this thing where it saves when you trade. Since you'll be trading online, there's no reason it couldn't save to the cloud at the same time ... not that Pokemon's the best example, get a female starter to breed and you can trade for just about anything 'rare'.

I guess Pokemon would be Game Freak's fault. They probably think Cloud Saves would mean less people would get Pokemon Bank when it becomes available for Switch.

Not sure about Pokemon, it's not a series I'm into.

From my understanding, with most games it's about preventing save scumming, which can be argued as a form of cheating in certain contexts.

Games like Splatoon 2 store a lot of info locally as opposed to serverside, so save scumming could be used to cheat the ticket or seashell systems if a player was inclined. Although I blame the game designers for not thinking things through more than anything.

You can back up your saves with or without the subscription if you look into it.

As for the anti-cheat argument it's a valid one, that many games have used it in the past too, but for legit players that wouldn't abuse the system to begin with it's just a pain in the ass, that hackers/modders can get around regardless as shown by LGPE, thus only hurting the legit players it's meant to protect.
