Yeah, manual saves aren't that great if you're actually looking to save your game and quit. They're much better if you're at a crossroads and are pretty sure one path leads to a new section while another leads to gear. Autosaves will put you back at the beginning of the new area (so you miss out) while a manual save will keep you in the area prior. You might be all the way back at the beginning of that area, but at least you won't miss out on anything if you're a completionist. Ditto if you use up a shitload of your resources in a fight.
