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.
