* In ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'', it is a huge part of the metagame, as you can get a display case and fill it with tiny plastic versions of some of the monsters you fight, or of any random thing in the game if you want.
** Not to mention the trophies you get for doing strange things in game, the tattoos you can get for collecting outfits, and the various familiars you can acquire.

* It can be argued that ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' is made up of them, since many missions in the game have collection elements tied into them.

** In order to unlock pieces for your Mother Base emblem, they must be earned by completing various tasks through the game (getting certain ranks, accomplishing all mission tasks, completing a mission using a certain playstyle). This quickly runs into GottaCatchThemAll territory when factoring in the emblem pieces that are only offered through the FOB mode.
** Many blueprints (27 in all) have to be collected by either completing Dispatch Missions (where soldiers from Mother Base are sent away for a set period of time to complete a task), or via optional tasks in certain main missions.
** The Animal Conservation Platform. Soon after Diamond Dogs is formed, Kaz calls you to relay that a contract was sent to him from an environmental NGO that wants them to rescue animals. You can then rescue animals (large and small) throughout the Afghanistan and Africa operating theaters, which will be sent to a separate platform to live. Completing this sidequest (via catching one of every animal) is a requirement for OneHundredPercentCompletion.
** There's also the Cardboard Box Delivery sidequest, which isn't [[GuideDangIt explained properly in the game itself]]. Each base has a "Delivery Point" where an invoice can be taken from it. Doing so unlocks that base as a fast-travel destination on the map, but it requires you to have a Cardboard Box and know that sitting in the box on the delivery point will open up the option to go to another place. Collecting all of the invoices in one region unlocks a water-resistant Cardboard Box (which won't fall apart in inclement weather conditions), and collecting all invoices in both regions unlocks a smoke-deploying box that shoots out a smoke screen when destroyed.
** The "[[spoiler:Paz Photos]]", which are collected by completing the Wandering Mother Base Soldier side missions and returning to the secret room on the Medical Platform. Collecting all of them unlocks a set of additional audio cassettes and the final "Morpho Butterfly" photo after the final cutscene is viewed.

* The ''HarvestMoon'' series has a couple in completing your recipe and shipping lists. Some game items are rare, only occur in certain places at certain times, or [[GuideDangIt you have to make yourself]]. And half the time, you need two of said item: One to ship and one to use as an ingredient. If 100% Completion isn't used as a requirement to unlock a marriage candidate (Usually [[MayflyDecemberRomance the Harvest Goddess]]), it's pure BraggingRightsReward.

** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall'', quests are well-rounded, but do contain their quota of collection missions. The main quest includes a good number of fetch quests. There is also that Merchant quest where you have to retrieve four gold bars - one from a house, one from a bank, one from a palace, and one from a dungeon.
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' features several. The Threads of the Webspinner quest for the Morag Tong has you finding 26 enchanted items with a major case of GuideDangIt. Finding all of the propylon indexes is an unofficial one, though you can turn them in for a "master index" in an official add-on.
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' has this in form of a Nirnroot (a semi-rare plant only found near or in bodies of water) sidequest which has you collect 100 of these, and if you're ''really'' bored, it's definitely possible to collect '''every single piece''' of playable armor and weapons in the game, ''just for showing them off''... to yourself.

** In general, throughout the series, you can make unofficial collection quests out of what ever you want. Want to collect all of the game's legendary artifacts? Absolutely. Want to pick up a copy of every [[InGameNovel in-game book]]? Heck yes. Want to collect every piece of a type of VendorTrash instead? You can do that too. Weapons, armor, wheels of cheese, pots, skulls, forks, bolts of cloth, specific OrganDrops...the list goes on. And because most games [[AHomeownerIsYou allow you to purchase or build a home]] (or several), you'll have a handy place for storing whatever it is you've chosen to collect.

Getting a certain amount of each will get you a health or stamina upgrade for the former and an expanded inventory for the latter.
