Of course, in many cases in video games, the projection is not actually isometric in the mathematical sense, because a 26.57° slope is much easier to draw on square pixels than a 30° slope [[note]]a right angle triangle where one acute angle is 26.57° has a corresponding side whose length is exactly half of the length of the other side[[/note]]. But that would be nitpicking, so these games are called "isometric" anyway. The term can also refer to the vastly different Trimetric Projection (such as in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout|1}}'' and VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}} or ''VideoGame/SimCity 4''), where ''all three'' angles are different.

* ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' uses this perspective when you visit Fourside, though it's a notable 45° instead of the traditional 30°-ish. This actually enhances the "city with tall buildings" effect.

* ''LittleBigAdventure''
* ''ScurgeHive'' has received the fan nickname "Isometroid" due to its isometric viewpoint and otherwise resembling another series. There actually was an Isometroid fanproject, taking the original game and displaying it from an angle, but as far as I know it never went anywhere.
