A 4x game similar to Civilisation, but with much more lifelike graphics. A civilization within it that has quite primitive architecture, but defensive units armed with machine guns. The governors of the various cities are all beautiful Asian women in elaborate silk robes.

A tank with weird curvilinear design that makes it look streamlined to drive around at over a hundred MPH. When it fires its gun things or chunks of things just vanish without any explosions.

For what it's worth in the dream I think I named it's weapon "The Reality Editing Cannon".

A mysterious room. There's no knowing what's inside but the person who goes in comes out with a glowing translucent arm and implied superpowers.

A post-apocalyptic small town, insular and paranoid about mutants, outsiders and the probably no longer existent enemy.

A "spirit of law" that can possess people and is out to eliminate everything fantastic.
