He quoted wikipedia because 2.5D is a term used by game developers and media to describe games that render 3D graphics but let you play on a 2D plain. So, in terms of computer game development- yes there is such a thing as 2.5D- and if you check out reviews by IGN, and gamespot, you'll see they use the term to describe the DS pokemon adventure games.... So it doesn't matter if you hate the term or not...If you knew game development terms, the 2.5D debate wouldn't even be an issue.... [kidding]noobs [/kidding]
<Plus, look up games like Shadow Complex, Trine, Trials HD to name some recent ones from last months release pool alone to see the term used in reviews to describe it>
