It's Just Logic: Difficult Quest
Starting the most difficult quests in video games. The Timed Quest.
It's Just Logic: Collateral Damage in Quests
How much Collateral Damage does it take to finish a timed quest before time runs out?
It's Just Logic: I swear I did that
When you thought you finished the quest but forgot to press the action button before time runs out.
It's Just Logic: Complete at any cost
When you retry an unfinished quest and your character is way overpowered.

Timed quests, probably one of the most difficult and annoying quests in any video game. It reminds me of when my mom would come home from getting groceries and yell for me to get the Milk in the fridge first. This never made sense to me since the milk had already been out of the store fridge for half an hour, what’s another 30 seconds. Just like how in a video game where an item that has been sitting there the whole time we were playing, suddenly has a timer saying it will expire in ten minutes as soon as we pick it up.
