About "Groundhog Day" Loop: it clearly says "Do you want to go back to past" if you fail the quest.

Well, it asks you (the player), not the character. It's no different than saving/loading the game.

Well, I always thought that it character who goes back in time. It doesn't just asks "Would you like to start over"

That's just fancy wording :)

The following entry relating to this series is on Prison Episode:
  • In Space Rangers 2 engaging in criminal activity may result in the character being sentenced to several months in jail. This triggers one of the game's many text-based minigames. Throughout his stay the character can join a fight club, race cockroaches, become a stool pigeon for the guards and, if he plays his cards right, come out much richer than he was going in. Granted, he may also die, but that's a minor detail.

Now, bear in mind that Prison Episode is defined as a prison-centered installment of a series not otherwise about prison; this is more so a minigame.

Not that this would disqualify it; in that trope's discussion page, battosaijoe claimed that things like levels should count if it makes up a significant enough portion of the gameplay, and kjnoren claimed to have looked through the video game section, removing the more obvious non-examples.

In any case, would you say it qualifies?

From trope description:
It might be an episode in a serial, a sequence in a video game, or a few chapters in a book.
Definitely fits.

It can take a while to get through this sequence too, and it's a definite change in the normal pace of the game, so I'd say it definitely qualifies.
