I can't remember the chain's name, but the 'Save the Dam' series originating in Loch Modan is my all time favorite. It may not be as funny as some others, but it is really engaging and works well to write you into the arch narrative. On the flipside, there are a few very poorly written quests. I had never really appreciated the caliber of most, or for that matter given any thought to the different voices behind the quest architecture until stumbling upon a few (particularly in Stranglethorn Vale) that felt as though they had been written by a 9th grade D&D dungeon master. The worst trait I've come across is to use the quest text as a window into your character's inner feelings, etc. "You feel cold" and the like. Bad bad bad.I am pleased that these poor examples are so few and far between, and for the most part, I think it is a very well written game that can be mostly unlocked by following the bread crumbs dropped from mission texts. That said, I still usually have thottbot open on my laptop when I play...
