Terminology

A Fetch quest is a term to describe quests that involve obtaining an item, and delivering it to a NPC. They are seen by some gamers as boring and lazy, as if the developer were trying to artificially lengthen the game.[citation needed]

RPG games (including MMORPGs) tend to be more inclined to having fetch quests than others, though some 3D platformers may also using this mechanic.
