Ohhh right I forgot I have no idea what I am talking about. I mean, I am like 6 credits away from a B.S. in Mathematics and not much further away from one in Physics, it's understandable that I keep forgetting that I don't know anything.
Neither of these things have anything to do with 2.5D games, but nice try with the credentials drop anyway.
You know through all of these "You just need to stop" and "You are wrong just deal with it" posts you've been adding you have failed to give one piece of evidence or provide one source that supports what YOU are saying.
I am not really that invested into what 2.5D gaming is. I certainly know what it means informally, just as you do (though what we think it means is contradictory, because no one has actually defined it). I'm doing my job as administrator to enforce level-headed discussion, and that's all. Treellama is not asserting what 2.5D gaming is, you are. I'm not telling you that you're wrong
, you just need to prove that you're right.
I haven't given a reputable source on 2.5D because I don't know where to look for such a thing, just like I don't know where to find a "reputable source" on parallax mapping, but I have given a consistent definition of 2.5D (in another topic) and no one has explained how it is self-contradictory (it also pretty much echoes the wiki article so it certainly isn't "my" definition").
So what you've given is your definition.
It does not echo the Wikipedia article since you also claim that Super Smash Bros is a 2.5D game.
Do you see the irony in jumping into this topic, telling me I am just insisting I am right and don't back it up, and then insist that I am wrong and give no evidence to back it up?
That's not what I'm doing.
