What’s Your Favourite Quest In A Game?

We’ve spoken a little bit about great quests, ranging from Monster Hunter: World to the lack of combat in Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s ‘Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts’. But what’s your favourite quest line of all time?

I wouldn’t nominate it as my favourite, but I’ve included a shot of the Bloody Baron from The Witcher 3. It’s a quest that a lot of people immediately associate with the game. It’s not the only good quest – perhaps not the best post-DLC – but a great instance of an evocative narrative line.

Messy, emotional, and full of morally compromised individuals, it’s a tale that can end in some truly harrowing ways. To learn more about how it came together, I spoke with the people who made it.”]

Other great quest lines that come to mind is The Thieves Guild, not from Skyrim but Oblivion. A massive 12-part undertaking, joining the guild starts by finding a poster of The Gray Fox or asking around. After getting some info, you’re given a test against two other thieves to steal a diary. The Whodunit? quest in the Dark Brotherhood quest line is pretty good to, showcasing some of the best parts of Bethesda’s creativity.

Mass Effect fans will also probably have a few favourite loyalty missions or quests of their own. I always had a soft spot for the part where you let Garrus win at the sniping duel in Mass Effect 3, but Samara and Thane’s loyalty missions in ME2 are pretty solid.

More recently, Divinity: Original Sin 2 has some crackers. Growing up with animals, the quest about the magic rooster, Big Marge and their demon offspring was a great lighthearted touch.
