I've been struggling with how to do something similar at work. Turn the daily tasks into something that is more of a friendly competition amongst co-workers but it's tough to come up with pre-defined "quests" or measurable tasks.

Well, technically there's no monthly fee, but you really want the good housing and consumable items, or it really stops being any fun at all.

Yeah but the high food and water requirements make the game a nightmare. Not to mention the high expense of player housing. It's probably a lot easier for this teen since he is still in the tutorial area and doesn't have to pay for all that stuff.

@Megan

They want the rent, the phone bill, the internet bill, all once a month around here. Where are you living that you can say life "technically" has no monthly fee?

IRL is waaaay too hard. Personally I prefer a game with a corpse run instead of just GAME OVER.

"Incredible NPC AI" my ass! Most people I meet are so stupid, i'm surprised they aren't walking into walls all day long.

Makes one wonder who designed these god-awful character creator options. You only get a random button that you get to hit once and it's pretty much a given to be something the player doesn't like. *grabs a bag of gold and hits the barbershop for more hair options*

From the description on its page, this is no different from a regular to-do checklist except that it uses the word "quests" in approximately three places. It doesn't give you any rewards or anything, not even fake ones.

A site I found much more helpful in this same vein was Chore Wars:
http://www.chorewars.com/

It actually lets you create quests for other people to do, has fights with monsters, and rewards experience, gold, or items for completing quests, allowing you to level up and trade in your gold and items to other people in return for other things. Much better than the silly to-do-list "quest tracker" you link to.
