Tetris, but there are no different shapes, just single squares.

Dark Souls, but it’s a VN

Cave Story - Change the EXP system to generic upgrades found in the game. Kills one of the coolest spins on Blaster Master's mechanics ruined.
Recettear - Force players to do both dungeon and item shop. Hurts the game's time management.

Resident Evil 1 - 7: No ammo, ink ribbons or healing whatsoever in the game. Knife everything, run from everything, and you can't save.
