Some of these games are not isometic...

Looking at these titles off the top of my head, I'm seeing quite a few that are not truly isometric: Diablo III, Command & Conquer III, Rome: Total War, Warcraft 1 & 2, Zombies Ate My Neighbors.

Some of those are rendered in 3D, and are therefore not eligible as isometric, and others are just "three-quarters down" overhead viewpoints.

For a better idea of what actually qualifies as isometric, see here.

You could just go in and remove the ones that shouldn't be in there.

New concept :

The Dismantler

Attaches anything and everything to as many games as possible (regardless of relevance) to win the points race and in turn become a site moderator with free reign on editting GB therefore dismantling 'The Bomb' and ruin an otherwise steller website.

Ps. Concept or Character..?

True enough, but I don't think pages called Orthographic and Oblique perspective are the way to go either, at GB.  If you want that kind of granularity I doubt the video game references are going to disappear from Wikipedia any time soon. :)
