Uses a grid of any shape or type.
The first video game about Grid was released in 1947.
Most non-polygon based games use grid of some sort in the background to align environments, props, etc. these should NOT be included in this tag. Most of these are much better described with the tile-based tag anyway. There are few games that are confusing in this, such as Minecraft and related games, but that is still tile-based and not grid-based (characters are not locked to that "grid").
