Granblue Fantasy is a Japanese role-playing video game. The game plays as a traditional Japanese role-playing video game with turn-based battles. The game also contains summons and a class system that alters the main character's move-set and growth. Characters gain levels and abilities by accruing experience; summons and weapons equipped also confer characters with bonuses on attack power and HP. The characters themselves are gained either via quests (the main story quests or special event quests) or by using in-game currency to receive random crystal fragments, which may contain special weapons that add specific characters to the party. Characters, summons, and weapons are ranked (from best to worst) as SSR, SR, R, or N; each is also of type wind, water, fire, earth, light, or darkness. Voice actors provide voices for all of the characters in battle, and for much of the main and event storylines.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II is a Japanese role-playing game and the sequel to The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel.

"The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II picks up one month after the decisive collision that changed the fate of the entire nation of Erebonia. The speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed “ARCUS” system returns, with all the bells and whistles players fondly remember, along with the new Overdrive mode, new means of transportation both across the land and sky, new allies, new dangers, and a renewed sense of hope as Rean tirelessly works to right the wrongs that have led the country to disarray."

LEGRA tactical turn-based RPG that takes you on a journey through Legrand, a chaotic world that's torn apart by civil war and threatened by an otherworldly invasion. You play as Finn, the reluctant leader of a band of unlikely heroes, who soon discovers that the true peril to their universe lies within themselves.

GAME MECHANICS: Turn-Based Combat with Quick Time Event (aka ACT – Action Circle Tempo) and Interruption. Strategy is key! You may exploit opponents' weaknesses by taking advantage of attack types, like the Weapon Triangle in the Fire Emblem series (i.e. slash beats pierce, pierce beats impact, impact beats slash), as well as element types (i.e. fire, water, earth, lightning, air, light, and darkness).

Once the commands have been inputted completely for all present active combatants, you have to watch out for the Quick Time Event dial (aka ACT – Action Circle Tempo, as we call it), and press the correct button at the right time to get attack or defense bonuses. If you missed the ACT, penalties will be incurred.

The unique feature about our combat system is that with every turn, all characters and enemies move simultaneously – some are faster and some are slower, depending on their moves or animation speed. Additionally, interruption may occur when a character or enemy is channeling grimoire or if they get attacked first. Lastly, there is no random encounter.

Go On a Journey: Immerse in the rich cultures of Legrand. You are invited to roam through towns for a brief respite in between battles or trek down the dungeons to fight malicious monsters. Camera panning will follow your characters during exploration, while idling will cause the camera to zoom out so you can enjoy the scenery. Beware where you step though, as spiteful spirits are always lurking around the corner!

Deploy Your Troops to Wars: Put your war general hat on. As the game progresses, you will gradually amass troops that can be deployed to wars in various areas of Legrand. There are different objectives you have to accomplish in order to achieve victory, but generally, think about the troop types and terrains before strategically placing your troops on the map. Winning wars will increase the character's fame and in return, you will be rewarded with more troops.

Recruit NPCs to Revamp Your Headquarters: You can recruit Non Player Characters (NPCs) to enhance the facilities in your Headquarters. Legendary crafters or smiths are only available in the Headquarters. Fun skill-based mini games will also be offered in the Headquarters and you can play these games repeatedly to beat your own high scores.

Take a Detour for a Little Side Quest: Side quests range from 'get to know your characters better' to hardcore challenges if you're up for some fun. You will receive rewards for completing the side quests, for example a war general or an NPC to tend to your Headquarters.

Crafting & Loot: Collect loot (materials or junks) from slain enemies and decide whether you want to sell them for money, or use them to upgrade your characters' equipment and craft necessary items.

Customize Your Menu: You can customize items and grimoire that characters can wield in combat, set combat formation, review journal to track quests, use restorative items to restore lost health, and input points to level up.

Character Leveling System: You can choose however you want to level up (MMO-style).

Grimoire (Magic) Learning System: Linked to the character leveling system, characters will acquire new grimoire abilities by fulfilling the requirements.

.hack//G.U. Vol. 3: Redemption is the third entry in the .hack//G.U. series containing: Vol. 1: Rebirth, .hack//G.U. Vol. 2: Reminisce and .hack//G.U. Vol. 3: Redemption. As in the previous .hack games, .hack//G.U. simulates a massively multiplayer online role-playing game as the player controls a character who starts playing it.

Players assume the role of a participant in a fictional game called The World. While in The World, the player controls the on-screen player character, Haseo, from a third-person person perspective (with optional first-person mode). The player may control the camera using the game controller's right analog stick. Within the fictional game, players explore monster-infested fields and dungeons as well as "Root Towns" that are free of combat. They also can "log-off" from the game and return to a computer desktop interface which includes in-game e-mail, news, and message boards, as well as desktop and background music customization options. In Reminisce, an optional card game called "Crimson VS" becomes available. The player may save the game to a memory card both from the desktop and within The World at a Save Shop. After the player completes the game, a Data Flag appears on the save file, which allows the transfer of all aspects of the player character and party members to the next game in the series. This can also be applied to previous games if the player first finished the Reminsce or Redemption.

Players can attack monsters in real time. However, the action pauses whenever the menu is opened in order to select magic to cast, items to use, or skills to perform. The player only directly controls Haseo, while the other characters are controlled by artificial intelligence. The player may either provide guidelines ("Free Will", "Rage", "Life", etc.) or issue direct commands (for example, to cast a particular magic at a particular enemy) to the computer-controlled characters. Monsters roam the environments freely or guard treasure chests. Once combat is initiated, via a "surprise attack" or the player being spotted, a wall erects around the combat area to prevent escape. Weapons give the player access to the Skill Trigger feature which allows them to perform a powerful attack at the cost of losing SPs. As an adept rogue character, Haseo can wield multiple weapons for close combat. Although Haseo can only use one weapon per battle, during Reminisce the player can change weapons in the middle of Skill Triggers. Under certain conditions, the player may execute an enhanced type of Skill Trigger called "Rengeki". These attacks deal greater damage and fill a Morale gauge, which allows the player and his team members to use a combination attack. Certain plot-related fights, called "Avatar battles", use a different interface which incorporates shoot 'em up gameplay elements. After depleting the opponent's health, players must charge up a "Data Drain" to end the battle.

Root Towns are non-combat areas in The World. The player may restock on items, buy equipment, or chat and trade with other "players" of The World. The player may also undertake optional quests and visit guilds. A key feature of all towns is the Chaos Gate. This blue portal is used to travel between towns (called "servers") as well as access the fields and dungeons where battles take place. A password system controls the characteristics of each area. Depending on the characteristics of each word in the three word phrase, the resulting area may have different attributes such as prevalence of monsters or items, among other features.
