Title: Worlds Unraveled: Quick reference guide to retro Action Adventure & ARPG games

This project started as complementary pages to my retro Platform Adventure/Metroidvania quick reference guide, where the original purpose was to briefly list top down and isometric view games based on their overlap with that genre, but it eventually grew into its own thing.

Let me know what your faves are and/or if there's something you want mentioned about a certain game.

I love the concept, but the lack of visuals makes the presentation feel a bit dated.

It'd be nice to include a long-play video of each game and/or some screenshots.

Sure, I'll work on the presentation a bit once I have the lists mostly done. It'll look more like the main lists (platform adventure/mv games).

So I made this a separate site and made some major updates to it. Feedback welcome.

I've updated the 1986-1990 TD & Iso pages, the 1992-1998 FP & TP view pages and added YT playlist links for both main categories:

I added info and a mini review for Xak 1 (SNES), and some subcategories for basically every entry so far.

Next up will probably be Silver or D/Generation.

Looks like there's not much interest in this one compared to the MV site, so thoughts on what I can improve would be appreciated.
