Hm… what about Infinity Engine games then? I think we all more or less know how it works and looks in the game.
You for example have visual effects like birds, that (with the trickery of shadows) seem to fly above the ground. According to your definition, Infinity games are 3D games too?
Well, isn't agreeing upon terminology/semantics all about talking about stuff later on? Defining something but later on don't use the derived terms seems pointless.
