    The general type of quests a game has differs. MMOs typically have fetch quests, where the player is required to head to a certain location, get an item, and bring it back to whomever gave the quest. These games can also include quests where the player is required to gather a certain number of something. Other RPGs where the player is by them self, such as Fallout 3 or The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, will usually have more complex quests but can also include any of the types mentioned previously.
