Post Bullshit Quests

So, in the latest episode of the Gamebang we had a discussion about bullshit quests with a poor payoff, ala Skyrim, which brought us to this weeks Poll question.

The Question is this: Do you enjoy a bullshit quest as long as there is a good payoff at the end. The payoff may be awesome loot, or it could be a hilarious pop culture reference they've worked into it. Cast your vote, and if you can, leave us a comment telling us about a quest you yourself have had that had an awesome payoff to it.

Thanks Shipheads. Later!

Muttonchop

I like bullshit quests when there are great payoffs at the end. Other than that they aren't worth my time.

I'll do pretty much anything in the game, unless it's a straight delivery mission, even then i'll consider doing it just in case it leads to a cool new location. Onto my second character now, still borderline addicted to the game.

I spent 10 minutes traveling to kill a giant in skyrim. I spent another 10 minutes and one reload to kill the giant. Then I went back to Winterhold to collect my reward of a whopping 100 gold. Now that is some bullshit! I think I'll just stick to stealing shit out of peoples homes from now on.

I like 100% completion so bullshit quest or not, it's getting done.

I'm a bit of a completionist as well. I'm always afraid I'm going to miss something important if I don't try to do every little thing. I don't really mind stupid quests, as long as there are plenty of quality ones to balance them out.

My issue is, especially with Skyrim, what is the definition of a bullshit quest? I've yet to see one in Skyrim. Generally, I would much rather do an exciting quest with little to no payoff than a bullshit one with a payoff. That's why I have a day job.

If the game is good and interesting enough you shouldn't care.
