anybody here in the VGF have a 3d gaming setup? I just got a 3d tv and am wondering if there are any games i should absolutely play in 3d

I do not (nor do I plan to) but according to Jeff Cannata, AC3 is really impressive in 3D.

Yeah my HDTV came with 3D glasses and I tried a few games. Honestly I thought it was stupid. I wasn't impressed. I think the picture quality for standard 2D was far better. I also tried a few movies, Avatar was by far and away the best and I still wasn't impressed. I personally don't get a real sense of depth with 3D, hopefully you have better luck. :)

I hear Killzone 3 is pretty nice in 3D.

i don't have binocular vision, so stereoscopic "3D" doesn't work for me.

when someone invents motion-parallax 3D, we'll talk. :)

I have a passive 3dtv, and after playing Super Stardust, Uncharted 3, ACIII and Blops2 (360 version, the mp is great, the sp is cool but has some weird gaffes with text not being on the proper plane), it's hard to play them in non 3d. The extra depth breathes new life into games, and when done right, completely immerses me in the experience. I was concerned about fatigued, and bloodshot eyes, or headaches, after extended sessions, but it's not really a big enough deal to be much of a concern. There are some games that feel more comfortable than others, but most I've tried have been great.

I have a 3D set up but only been able to mess around with a few games. Stardust HD was by far the best i have had the chance to play.

I haven't experienced it for games but if we were talking about movies I'd agree.

FPS are really cool in 3d, there is a slight adjustment period at first, like maybe 5-10 minutes, but the extra depth actually makes shooters easier, and more fun.

Black ops 1 and 2 both look amazing in 3D. Also, Uncharted 3 is another great 3D game. As someone else said, Killzone is suppose to be really good in 3D but I haven't tried it yet.

MLB the Show is really fun in 3D. Motorstorm: Apocalypse is good, not great. Both Killzone 3 and Resistance 3 are fun, especially with the sharpshooter. Uncharted 3 is amazing in spots, average in others.

I have a 47'' lg passive set, we bought it during a pre black friday blowout at frys. I wasn't really planning on getting one, but I couldn't pass up the price, and it's 10'' bigger than my previous one (that's what she said!).

Games, and a ton of 3d movie torrents, provide a ton of content. I did really like 3d movies before I got the set, and I have a 3ds. I haven't touched my 3ds since I bought the tv though, in fact, the 3ds tends to give me headaches.

EDIT - I just tried the first Jak and Daxter game, and it doesn't look great in 3d, though I've heard the two sequels look much better graphically, which helps.

Haha, it passed the 'drinking test' - ''when I'm drinking, will 3d break my brain?'' - Thankfully, it does not. It might be the passive (vs active) glasses that are a bit easier on the eyes,

I want to like 3D gaming, but it gives my eyes strain and me a headache. The 3DS is the worst offender here.

Yea, if I play the 3ds in the morning, I'm almost guaranteed to have a headache later in the day.

3D gaming always makes me want to barf...literally. Not enjoyable.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 29, 2012 12:03:02 PM PST
Oh man, my brain just vomited in my skull a lil'. I got to finally watch Despicable Me, and in 3d, and it was the cow's bell. More cow's bell, not less, is what everything needs.

I thought Arkham City was pretty awesome in 3D. I even played it with red/cyan glasses and a driver hack. It seems like it could only get better with a more advanced 3d method.
It seems like some art styles and genres would benefit from 3d more than others, though. I didn't like Left4Dead in 3d because I didn't think the style or FPS perspective really worked well in 3d.

I have a 32" Vizio passive 3Dtv,below will be movies/games I own

2)Sonic Generations(8/10- really loved playing it because of the immersion)-ps3.
3)Ico/SOC collection(Ico-6.5/10,SOC-8/10, really great depth & immersion)-ps3.
4)House of the Dead:overkill(8.5/10- man awesome game and old school 3D effect)-ps3.
5)Killzone 3(7.5- its decent and good enough, at least you can play online in 3D unlike Halo CE Anniversary)-ps3.
6)Uncharted 3(8.5- really good and great depth)-ps3.
7)The Fight: Lights out(5.5- really pathetic 3D overall)-ps3.
8)Datura(7.5- some parts standd out way better than other parts of the very short game).-Psn.
9)Motorstorm Rift 3D(9.5- awesome 3D, way better than the motorstorm apocalypse retail game)-psn.

11)Halo:CE Anniversary(8.5- Really good depth and immersion)-360.
12)Gears of war 3(9.0-really great depth and immersion)-360.
13)Mortal Kombat(1.5- pretty much useless)-ps3.
14)Batman:Arkham City(6.5- its decent 3D)-360.

The best movies:
1)Resident Evil Afterlife(1.5- really sucks imo, its some minor depth & no real pop out).
2)3D Magic Forest(.5- really no 3D effects whatsoever).
3)Bait 3D(7.5- really good depth & popouts).
4)My Bloody Valentine (remake)3D(9.5- the best 3D popout I have seen yet out of all the 3D movies Ive seen/own).
5)Flying Swords of Dragon Gate 3D(7.5- really good popout & depth at times).
6)Transformers:DOTM3D(8.5- really good depth and some popout).
7)Underworld Awakening3D(6.5- decent depth & ok popout).

Also wanted to say poster that you can buy a 3dwizard converter for $40-50(on here) & use on a hdtv until you buy a 3Dtv.Peace.
