I have been a gamer since the 80's mall arcades and the original Atari. Many games have offered interesting side quests and goals from the main plot. Some side quests have been pointless but fun,while others are 'required' to advance the story line. I'd have to say that my favorite side quest comes down to two games. One is the "water-soccer" side game in Final Fantasy X,and the other would have to be the Cook-Off's in Suikoden 2. Neither side quest aids in advancing either game,but it is fun anyway. So what's your favorite all-time side quest?
