Touhou: Phantasmagoria of Flower View ()
Traits applied: intense, Aya, Lorelei, Shikieiki, Gensokyo, Marisa Kirisame,
“Of all the wonderful Touhou games, PoFV has stood as my favorite, feeling much like ZUN's personal gift to the fans. The core of the gameplay is a simultaneous mixture of the stage and boss parts that comprise other Touhou games. It heavily differs...”

Mortal Kombat: Deception (GC)
Traits applied: Mortal Kombat Universe, Kabal, Shao Kahn, Violent brutal and funny, Multiple fighting styles, Multiple gameplay modes,
“As far as I'm concerned this is the pinnacle of the Mortal Kombat franchise, and one of my top fighting games of all time. To begin, the game has a lot of unique playing modes ranging from an adventure "Konquest" mode, a "Puzzle...”

Mortal Kombat 3 (SNES)
Traits applied: Earth in ruins, bloody, Fast-paced, Humorous Violence, Kabal,
“Despite a very good atmosphere, this game sucks. Or maybe I'm just terrible at it, but consider my point proven if you find yourself completely unable to touch the opponent despite doing exactly the same attacks as they are. A good challenge is...”

Mortal Kombat 4 (N64)
Traits applied: Mortal Kombat Universe, 3D Fighter, Dark and bloody, Reptile, Awesome levels,
“Very underrated installment of the series. It has a very solid cast of characters, great atmosphere, and a very enjoyable and easy to get into battle system. It's certainly not a landmark game like some of the more popular titles in the series, but...”

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3 (PS2)
Traits applied: Naruto Universe, Friends, CPU, Kisame,
“This game continues this series and pretty much covers everything necessary from the pre-Shippuden era. Like a lot of anime fighters, this has lost a lot of worth due to the sequels which simply add without taking out. At the time I first got into...”

One Piece: Unlimited Adventure (WII)
Traits applied: One Piece, The Straw Hat Crew, Fun and upbeat, One Piece villans,
“Very good One Piece single player adventure. You can play any of the Straw Hats (Aside from Brook who hadn't been introduced yet) and the gameplay follows a solid action/platformer style with a couple of RPG elements. The environments are a big...”

One Piece: Grand Battle (PS2)
Traits applied: One Piece, AI and Players, crocodile,
“Despite losing its worth after the release of Grand Adventure, this game was great for One Piece fans back at in the day. Its engine is pretty much the same as Grand Adventure and the Japanese Grand Battle games, so if you've played those you'll...”

One Piece: Grand Adventure (PS2)
Traits applied: One Piece Universe, Hilarious, crocodile, Zoro, Friends, 3D Fighting,
“The best (and funniest) anime game I've played along with Tenkaichi 3. The gameplay is pretty much the same as the Grand Battle series though with bigger movelist. The cast has everyone from the American Grand Battle plus a few Enel arc and...”

Traits applied: RPG, Everyone, Epic dark fantasy, Immersive, open world, orc ,
“To begin, I'll point out that I've never actually done anything storywise in this game, so I have no knowledge of what any of that is like. That only goes to show what this game accomplishes in non-linear gameplay of course. As such this is one of...”

Traits applied: 3D Platformer, dark humor, puzzle solving, Beautiful scenery, Developing character, Atmospheric,
“While this game was huge back when it came out, I've found that it has lost a lot of the attention it deserves nowadays. This game is one of the best on the PS2 and still amazes me with its surreal atmosphere, magically dreamy landscapes, and...”
