* ''BaldursGate''
** ''Baldurs Gate'' is just full of lazy, lazy gits always asking you to go and fetch them a book, a sword, a dead body, a scroll, or something else that's often less than thirty feet away. To the point where your character has the [[LampShade opportunity]] to go on [[RantInducingSlight a long tirade]] that anyone who has ever played [=RPGs=] will agree with. Your journal will be full of [[DeadpanSnarker snark]] about it.
** ''Baldurs Gate 2'' is famous (amongst other things) for having ''no'' pure {{Fetch Quest}}s. Subverted and parodied in "Throne of Bhaal", where you can subcontract a recovery quest to younger adventurers you just depetrified. They try to kill you for more loot, but reload the game after you slaughter them.

Added DiffLines:

* VideoGame/DarkSouls features many optional quests, most of which involve you assisting other NPC adventurers, in addition to many optional dungeons and bosses. Most of these quests are [[GuideDangIt difficult to accomplish if you don't know what you are doing]], so it will probably take multiple playthroughs to beat them all.

* ''VideoGame/SenNoKiseki'' Is more fleshed out and more streamlined than that of ''VideoGame/LegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'' as the optional jobs are mixed with the required tasks.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII'' is essentially full of {{Broken Bridge}}s and situations which end in benefits for the party (like, say, a nice new airship) and quite a lot of them are just sidequests woven into the main plot, or sidequests that remove something to inhibit you - come on, do heroes normally have to beat up some guy when he chains up their airship?
** Similar to ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', the second half of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' is free form. There are three missions you have to do, but other than that, the missions are all side-quests, with rewards like powerful magic and recovering your warriors.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', most are contained within the Gold Saucer location
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'', Averted as two of the mini-games are required to play in order to advance the story.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', has many sidequests, one example of which is killing of [[BountyHunter "marks"]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/KisekiSeries'' Has what is called "jobs" that players can fulfill outside of the story. Some may be a bit harder than others, despite that they garner great rewards.
