When you are playing on an emulator, you can do an instant save of your game, known as a savestate. After you die in said video game, you can load your savestate. When you use savestates to totally avoid death, or to cheat at the game, it is said you are savestate abusing.
Necroscope86 is a champion savestate abuser! Just watch his Let's Play of Resident Evil Director's Cut on YouTube!
