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.

It is Makrouh (disliked) to pray in front of a mirror. The reward I of the prayer will be less but it is not Haraam to do that. Your prayer is valid even with being in front of a mirror. Makrouh is not forbidden.

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.

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...
