Isometric Games' list (retro games)

To be honest, I don't like this genre myself, but I think it's definitely an important genre to talk about when discussing retro games.
Back in 2016, there were a lot of people on EAB who were knowledgeable about retro games in general, so I asked them to list title names.
This page is just a backup of the thread from that time. It's because we never know when my entire ID might be deleted! :D
