Face

The face is the front of an animal's head that features three of the head's sense organs, the eyes, nose, and mouth, and through which animals express many of their emotions. The face is crucial for human identity, and damage such as scarring or developmental deformities affects the psyche adversely.

Neither washing nose is obligatory in Wudhu nor washing mouth. Both of them are just recommended and not obligatory. Washing head or feet in Wudhu is wrong because you should wipe over them and not wash them.

If you are sure that your Wudhu was invalid, you need to perform it properly and re do the prayers which were done with wrong Wudhu.

Wassalam.

Wudhu is valid on naturally oily face. If the oil is much more than the usual, then you can wash it before performing the Wudhu.

The natural oiliness on the face or head or body does not harm Ghusl. It is good to remove such natural oiliness before Ghusl or Wudhu but it is not obligatory to do so..

Of course not!
Perhaps you are referring to a ruling about painting the picture of a living animal or human being, or making their statues which was forbidden before.
The criterion for this forbidding is that the Arabs, because of their closeness to the time of ignorance, although converted to Islam, had a heartfelt interest in idolatry and preserved their ancestors' works. The Prophet, therefore, strongly prohibited the making of faces and icons to eradicate disbelief and defended monotheism.

So we can conclude that playing those games is not Haram unless another thing comes up, say for example the characters are naked or...

You can perform Wudhu directly with water with out washing your face with soap unless you are sure that there are thick layer of dust on your face which prevents the water from reaching the skin, then you need to wash that thick layer first to unable water of Wudhu to reach to your face.

A lot of things are said about what is and is not possible regarding dreams about Ahl al-Bayt (A), however, as far as I know, most of them have no basis.

It is possible for the Shaytan to appear as something he is not; in fact, the main feature of Shaytan is deception. 

However, even if you were dreaming about something other than Ahl al-Bayt, there are a lot of things between Ahl al-Bayt and Shaytan that you could have been dreaming about. (Including your own subconscious!)

If, in your dream, the being told you to do something evil or which you know is wrong, it is good to ignore it. It doesn't really  matter where it came from. It could have been Shaytan or something else. 

If it told you to do something good, it is good to accept it.  

If it told you something else, you can also look into it and see if it is a beneficial or destructive thing. 

If it just stood there and didn't do anything, then it doesn't really matter - all you can say is, you don't know. 

So, I don't think you should worry too much about Shaytan being in your dreams. While it is good to be conscious of Shaytan's existence, it is not good to get too paranoid about it (indeed, that could also be a trick of Shaytan!). I think Shaytan is probably busy in other places and maybe doesn't have too much time for dreams unless there is some very specific reason why you think this is the case. 

(This is assuming you actually had a dream about this and are not just asking in general)
