Side Quests, a term I had not really heard of until the PS3 came out and I bought my first
Assassin’s Creed game. Gaming has changed so much, in particular with open world games Like Fallout, that the main campaign according to developers is not enough content within it to get the full experience of these games…enter side quests. Side quests are missions, or tasks you complete that have no irrevocable effect on the main story and can be completely unrelated to the focus of the game. However what they generally offer (at least in Fallout 4) is experience, new weapons, armor or items, even a mild story-esque mission of its own to improve the overall experience of your gameplay.
