With save files, it kind of defeats the purpose of game over screens. Faster to just put you back to where you saved last or back to a hub instead of just exiting back to the title screen and have to reload everything again.
And I miss passwords where the real frustration came from having to introduce the long ass wall of words and numbers then rage when they tell you it's incorrect.

In a generation where they take your hand from the beginning to the end with checpoints every 5 steps that's just perfectly normal.

Unless they add bonfires in future games I don't see this changing.
