* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' is of the last variety and most seem to want items from the TV World despite not really knowing about it. Lampshaded when the MC's accept line is "I'll search the TV"; the other party is confused.
** The ''main character'' gives ''himself'' a quest at one point - feeding a cat.
* In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'', the Hunters' Association and K's Tavern fill this role, with Burroughs registering any quests as they pop up. Many demons will also offer quests if spoken to at the right moments. [[spoiler: Many of the quests issued by the Association are actually from Fujiwara, who's issuing them ''precisely'' to find a Hunter capable of wielding the power of Masakado.]]

** In ''VideoGame/Persona5'', most of your Confidants will at some point require you to go into Mementos and change someone's heart in order to progress their link further. Additionally, most of your sidequests are provided courtesy of Mishima's Phan-site.

* Most BioWare games don't mark quest-giving characters visually, although many of them will approach characters directly or have other ways of making themselves obvious through what they say and do.

* ''VideoGame/TheLordOfTheRingsOnline'' uses (what else?) golden rings, resembling cocked halos. The rings change color for completed or over/underleveled quests, and people who are willing to talk to you about a quest you're currently on (without actually advancing it) display a ring with s quill inside.

* ''VideoGame/RakenzarnTales'' uses a mix of the second and fourth types of quest obtaining. You meet with your contact at the guild to learn who is need of assistance at the time. The locations of quest givers are marked in your book and you can go hunt them down in the listed area. Now and then, you can find a hidden quest by talking to people, usually those out of the way or with unique sprites.



* ''VanVonHunter'' had a bit character whose official name was "[[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Quest-Giver Guy]]". (In fact the page quote sounds remarkably like a conversation Van and his [[NoNameGiven sidekick]] would have had about him.)

* In ''RuneScape'', a blue * in a circle on the world map shows where quests start.
* CityOfHeroes gives players an initial contact, who will give them missions, then eventually send them to another contact to repeat the process. One can also use the Police Scanner or the Newspaper for missions, but completing enough will eventually get you to a contact.
