She helps solve people's problems in the small town, game focus on character interaction and relationship (not romantic) development. 3 endings: turn in boring story, turn in accurate but weird story, quit and move to small town.

    Real time strategy where uniform layer of resource (metal) lies beneath terrain and only obstruction to obtain it is the terrain itself as in how much dirt between player and the metal has to be dug out. Only other resources in the game are time and power. Power can be obtained from renewables or by using metal. Everything can be made out of metal with specified amount of power and time can be reduced if need by to half by using more metal and power (double?). i know its not 10 but fk your elevator.

    Life management sim but you're the Big Bad waiting at the end of an open world game, one that is touted by fans and also by its devs as having "40 hours of gameplay, and that's just the main questline". You do the usual busywork of an evil organization, issue commands to your seconds, thirds and fourths in command, get to read reports of the hero's progress thru the his quest of revenge, then you have to fix the somehow never ending delays to your mustache twitching world ending EVIL plan, which obviously finalizes at the exact moment the hero finally decides to mozzy over. But of course the player decided to do a 100 percent complete run and is now doing the side missions that would get locked out once the story moves past certain points like finding 300 unique flower pressings to make a gift for a potential ally/ love interest that would take out 3/4 of your health in the final boss fight. Or a picture taking collection that ensures the art gallery near the your base will be quite successful once the hero arrives in town. The latter one is somehow more popular with the fans of the game. So you have to send in goons to set up ambushes that bread crumb the MC into doing story essential missions.

    A reverse RPG, where you play an aging hero who loses abilities and characteristic points with every level due to age. You can partially balance it out with better equipment, but eventually, even fighting the easiest enemies becomes a taxing and potentially deadly endeavour, and finally, you die to a slime that almost killed an aspiring young heroine, saving her. Then you get a recap of her heroics.
