** ''Baldurs Gate 2'' is famous (amongst other things) for having ''no'' pure {{Fetch Quest}}s. Subverted and parodied in "Throne of Bhaal", where you 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.

* ''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.

* ''{{Solatorobo}}'' has a plethora of sidequests. They're optional, of course, unless you happen to need to be a slightly higher Hunter rank to take a plot-relevant quest. Not all quests will increase your rank, however.
* The search for the Extra-Life clover boxes in ''LittleBigAdventure'' and it's sequel. ''Little Big Adventure II'' also has the optional adventure in the form of a BonusDungeon; an off-the-main-path island cave off the coast of Desert Island which houses the Protection Spell. You do not need the spell to complete the game, and it will become LostForever once you leave Twinsun the second time.

* The later ''Franchise/{{Fallout}}'' games, specifically ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and ''[[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas Fallout: New Vegas]]'', also follow this; this is somewhat unsurprising, however, as they are developed by [[Franchise/TheElderScrolls Bethesda]].


Added DiffLines:

* The ''Franchise/{{Fallout}}'' series generally have a game-spanning storyline that consists of a handful of major quests in key locations and a plethora of sidequests to fill out the world, such as rescuing a town from raiders or clearing out monsters from an abandoned mine. The results of these quests may determine the fate of settlements and people you come across in your travels.
