* The Fishing Hole returned in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]''. Still awesome, and this time using the Wii controls. [[spoiler: It can even be used against Ganondorf! [[BoringYetPractical Guess that wasn't a total waste of time!]]]]

Still awesome, and this time you can fish in any body of water, using a fishing rod of your very own, plus the Wii controls. [[spoiler: It can even be used against Ganondorf!

** Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, on top of having the afforementioned Super Training and Pokemon Amie, has the Poke Nav Plus, namely the Dex Nav function. It gains better search functions the more a particular species of Pokemon have been encountered. Pokemon detected by the Dex Nav may have Egg Moves, holding certain rare items, possess ''Perfect IV's'', and even be''Shiny''. Players may just waste their time fiddling around with the Dex Nav than doing actual adventuring.

*** Super Training is a set of mini-games where your Pokemon kicks soccer balls into a balloon to try and pop it as fast as possible. This has the gameplay purpose of increasing your Pokémon's Effort Values which can be manipulated for MinMaxing, and is much, much easier than the previous way of killing a certain type of Pokemon over and over again. Secret Super Training takes this even further by having mini-games that reward rare items like Evolution Stones, PP Ups, and even ''PP Maxes'' if the player does well enough. Of course, it still takes a long time to complete, so players find themselves spending a lot of time in the mini-games, causing this trope. ** Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, on top of having the afforementioned Super Training and Pokemon Amie, has the PokeNav Plus, namely the DexNav function.

** "Chocobo Hot & Cold" in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''. Granted, it helped that the top prize for the game was the best armor for four different characters, and it also gave you access to the BonusBoss. And that the music was [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rddoNmZUHIo catchy like nothing else.]] *** And the Chocographs provide the best weaponry for four, and the best weapon you're likely to get for a fifth. Also, Chocobos are adorable.

Dead link in the Ocarina of Time section (pun intended)
** Parodied [[http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1923420 here,]] where Link is too busy either fishing or chasing chickens to do ''anything'' that actually involves saving Hyrule.

* Adding to the list of open world games guilty of this trope, the ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' series as its gone on has become less about pulling off assassinations and more about doing (X) for 100 percent "synchronization". Even free running from building to building counts as this trope. ** To be fair though, getting sidetracked by the multitude of sidequests in an Assassins Creed game often leads to getting better armor or weapons so choosing to partake in any of them usually pays off in the end. That said, you can still just rush through the main quest with nothing but whatever starting gear you own. *** And every game starting with 2 usually has an in game economy so its usually to your benefit stock up on money earned from treasure chests and carrying out assassination contracts. **** Think that's not enough? ''Brotherhood'' introduced the ability to recruit potential assassins and train them up through sending them on missions. There's also the fact that they can be useful for distracting guards in missions where 100 percent completion requires stealth. Also, did we mention this was the first game in the series to have an online multiplayer portion which in itself has become quite addicting. ***** Starting with ''III'' its actually very common for gamers to report that they spend more time sailing around the world or customizing their ship than they do playing through the main story.

* ''VideoGame/{{Wolfquest}}'' technically has a plot you're supposed to follow - find a mate, breed, [[EscortMission move your pups]], the end - however it's easy to get lost in pretending to be a wolf, hunting animals, and exploring the wilderness.
