Lack of manual save, for example allowing progress to be saved only at checkpoints, can exclude gamers who are physically only able to to play for short bursts of time, or who may have to stop playing suddenly without warning.
It can also mean the difference between being able to play and not being able to play for gamers with more profound impairments who find each individual task a lengthy challenge.
Ideally provide both manual save and autosave.
