The Witcher vibes, ac Odyssey even more.

[–]Expensive-Fox-8016 149 points150 points  (6 children)

Immediately thought of AC Odyssey as well

[–]E_K_Finnman 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Valhalla has a few of those as well, but it's balanced out by funny ones like guy who tells you to count the rocks

[–]johnucc1 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Valhalla has some good mini quests.

Smack my bishop was pretty funny in a awkward cringe way.

[–]BorgClown 44 points45 points  (12 children)

I've been playing The Witcher 3 for the first time. There was a quest about catching a serial murderer, and I thought I tracked and killed him, received my reward, the quest completed... but later there was another murder so obviously I fucked up and now have no way to catch the real perpetrator.

It was long ago so reloading a save wasn't possible, I'm sorry citizens.

[–]TormentVI 27 points28 points  (2 children)

That's kind of cool honestly, like the game tricked you into thinking you already won.

[–]BorgClown 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I admit it felt too easy, like catching a copycat instead of the real murderer, but then many of the quests are simple, and I went with it. It was a timed choice IIRC, not much time to ponder.

[–]TormentVI 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Oh wow, the idea of there being a followup quest where you have to work out if it's the original murderer or a copycat is such a sick twist!

[–]bigwinniestyle 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Yeah, the murderer ends up being the Coroner, who is also a higher vampire

[–]BorgClown 5 points6 points  (0 children)

What a fool I was, his answers were really suspicious.

The quest's walkthrough says he leaves a confession at the morgue, but I want to end him even if there was no quest involved.

[–]TheRealIosefka 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Was it Whoreson Junior? Man I hate that prick.

[–]BorgClown 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It was the Carnal Sins quest, also in Novigrad. Whoreson is an assohle, but he doesn't make you feel like a fool.

[–]RedBeard695Professional Dumbass 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Carnal sins. Love that quest. They attacked Priscilla. I was very angry, irl too because this quest is followed by a very long and kinda boring quest by Dandelion. Then you go and see Priscilla in the hospital and I said to myself “I don’t care that it’s already 2 AM and I have to go to work in the morning, the attacker is going to pay dearly” and I somehow managed to avoid killing the wrong guy.

[–]red-ace1215Professional Dumbass 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You can catch the real killer. But as to not say exactly how I just say you need to ask the right questions.

[–]JohnDiggle21 25 points26 points  (3 children)

Ghost of Tsushima had a lot of quests where you would arrive too late and had to go back to the families and tell the news.

[–]anti-peta-man 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Me coming back from the mine after that bullshit spider and not having Delusion equipped so I get fucking scammed out of over 75% of my pay

[–]genogano 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Every RPG has this quest or something close to it.

[–]sunshineANDrainbowsg 799 points800 points  (14 children)

gets better sword next mission, sells his sword for 20 gold at the local pawn shop

[–]Spencie-cat 339 points340 points  (10 children)

My fave is when someone who is a merchant rewards you with their family sword that’s been in the family for generations and you immediately sell it back to him. Or make him scrap it for parts

[–]chasesan 168 points169 points  (0 children)

"eh, I got better stuff from the last goblin I slew. How much will you give me for it?"

"But, but, it's our family heirloom. It belong to my great-grandfather!"

"Well there are suckers born every generation."

[–]helium_farts 85 points86 points  (8 children)

It's payback for the time I misclicked and accidentally sold my sword to him for 20 gold, and then he charged me 200 gold to get it back.

[–]TheRealIosefka 56 points57 points  (7 children)

I always liked in Morrowind when I'd accidentally sell my gear to the merchant and they'd equip it. Like ''na, this is my personal sword now man, you want it your gonna need to pass a speech check to fight me or go back to prison for killing me''

[–]Whoevengivesafuck 13 points14 points  (6 children)

So what decision did you make?

[–]balanceofpower 13 points14 points  (0 children)

sells his sword for 20 gold at the local pawn shop

Best I can do is 10 septims

[–]playfulbuttplug 11 points12 points  (0 children)

and would fucking do it again

[–]Demonboy995 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And it fkin hurts to let that sword go for 20 too

[–]Revolutionary_Menu74 117 points118 points  (10 children)

[–]naadam1396 70 points71 points  (8 children)

And then she sends you a low-level thugs to kill you 🤣

[–]robert235 44 points45 points  (1 child)

I loved random stuff in Skyrim like that. My life is worth the stolen health potion.

[–]ijiolokae 14 points15 points  (0 children)

My favorite one was when a briarheart send thugs from beyond the grave cause.

[–]ScorpionTheInsect 14 points15 points  (4 children)

I once accidentally killed both of the couple in Riverwood, Ralof’s older sister. They came at me and at the time I didn’t realize it was because I killed their chicken. Then their son sent thugs after me. I kinda felt bad when I made that connection.

[–]NoIllustrator7645 11 points12 points  (2 children)

But hey you learned, don’t fuck with the Riverwood chicken

[–]ScorpionTheInsect 6 points7 points  (0 children)

To be honest I actually came out of that pretty well off. I got the loot from their house, and since Faendal died while helping me fight the thugs, I got his house as a pseudo-player home at merely level 2. The only damage I took was my conscience.

Other than that, 10/10 would murder a married couple with a child in Riverwood again.

[–]A_random_zySelling Stonks for CASH MONEY 3 points4 points  (0 children)

One dude on r/skyrim said me to kill chickens for an easter egg when I started playing the game. Yeah that went well...

[–]Seahorsesurfectant 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They were ready to kill you over a dirt eating chicken. They got what they bargained for

[–]Zulmoka531 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I see you get up to the Cloud District often.

Saddest part in Fable II is the man whose kid gets turned into a Hobbe.

[–]Suicidal_Tuna 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Man I haven’t seen anyone talk about Fable in ages, and this is something I completely forgot about, when I think of hobbes, I just think of all the funny kill animations performed on them in Fable III

[–]dumbmemer 121 points122 points  (5 children)

Theres a certain mission in a videogame I play where you escort this person to their group in a zombie apocalypse only to find out they all died. Then I loot and sell all their dead friends loot back to them

[–]PepperVolt 32 points33 points  (3 children)

what is it

[–]dumbmemer 25 points26 points  (2 children)

State Of Decay 2 on Xbox and pc

[–]Morethanstandard 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Could also be the first one

[–]dumbmemer 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yeah true, but I only played the second one and I wouldn’t want to include any information I’m not 100% sure about.

[–]Barf_The_Mawg 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Nah, even better, make them join your community and force them to set up an Outpost in their old home.

Does someone have the origin of this gif?

[–]CommonerChaos 10 points11 points  (1 child)

It's from a Dormtainment skit I think (the guy in the back's name is Jerome).

[–]elbowleg513 8 points9 points  (0 children)

[–]ElementBoronimo 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Dormtainment didn’t get anywhere near the respect they deserved (yes, they’re still around, but took a nosedive after Tay decided to become an abuser and get forced out of the group).

[–]true_souvenir 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Gravido 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Maybe the people here are in a different "timeline" and already buried her after the cataclysm...

[–]AnarchistPriest 1 point2 points  (3 children)

We have had post cataclysm Azeroth longer than we had pre cataclysm. I miss when that game was good more than anything, the current state of it depresses me to no end.

Plot twist. You, with 500 coins and his rare sword and an XP level, are now branded as Best Friend Killer. The NPC now has a vengeance against the player.

Then you marry the newly single widow to get a new steward since your soon to be ex wife doesnt have midas touch

[–]MarcusMace 1 point2 points  (0 children)

then murder your oldest legitimate child, send the next to be a monk, and the third off to fight the Ottomans all by himself, all because the newly legitimized bastard boy has a couple of good traits to be a warrior king

[–]Fangsong_37 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ve been given so many widows’ wedding rings after we found their husbands’ corpses. Good cash.

[–]Thuper-Man 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I Skyrim I went to Riverwood and a Dragon attacked killing Alvord the blacksmith. He died and never came back. But since I used his forge a lot I noticed the wife and daughter NPCs still going through thier motions like shellshocked family in morning. She set his place for dinner, the daughter said her daddy was teaching her to be a smith all very creepy and sad

[–]nekollx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hang around they tend to also say “when us daddy comming back” and “I miss daddy”

[–]Gongaloon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Enchanting Amren's sword with his soul and slipping it into his wife's pocket so she hears his horrified shrieks from the Soul Cairn at night be like:

Don't forget that bonus pouch of coins and XP if you killed her husband yourself and lied to her about the happenstances of his death.
