The best isometric games

Games with isometric perspective represent the game world in an isometric three dimensional way, from a third-person point of view. Alone in the Dark is a perfect example of this tecnique. Usually, when referring to a game perspective as "isometric", we also mean some kind of parallel projection different from isometric perspective.
