I generally prefer that games do not expose markers by default on the HUD.
In Skyrim, I turned off markers and deselected most quests in the journal and only enabled markers on the map when I really had trouble finding something or needed a reminder. Morrowind was better about in game instructions but I will admit it could be frustrating to locate stuff.

I don't really want to revert back to graph paper and detailed notes but I also don't want red exclamation points over NPC heads either. Giving the option should be prerequisite in most games. I'm currently playing Xenoblade and the exclamation points on minimap that cannot be turned off and over NPC heads is driving me slightly bonkers and removing some of the pleasure of discovering stuff on my own. I'm sure its saving me a ton of time and since they are usually not very interesting quests I guess its better to get them over with.

Maybe more interesting quests instead of tons of boilerplate fetch quests that require such blatant techniques would be preferred.
