On the other hand, surround gaming has genuinely and legitimately changed my whole gaming experience and I'll never go back to a single display--can't say that much for 3D though...

Oh and I find it hilarious how everyone who gets headaches from 3D therefore declares the whole concept to be inherently rubbish. Science has proven about 15% of people can't see in 3D - it's your brain that's defective, buddy. Don't expect anyone to admit that anytime soon though lest they bruise their own ego.
This whole anti-3d crusade is so incredibly tiresome considering it's COMPLETELY OPTIONAL. If you don't like it, don't use it. But all this incessant whining from all corners of the internet like 3D killed your sister really needs to stop...

Originally Posted by Grape FlavorYeah, I'm sorry, could have phrased that better, I sounded kind of hostile. I'm just sick of all this debate and the venom against 3D. If you don't like it, don't use it. I do appreciate your investigating the issue but again: 3D is entirely optional. So when it really comes down to it this "debate" is over nothing - I don't quite see the point in all this internet fussing over whether any particular individual thinks it is or isn't rubbish.

Like it or not, 3D isn't going to be able to stay or become the mainstream. Far too many hurdles to its acceptance.

I think the masses are against anything that isn't standard issue pc hardware. I'm surprised they even accepted 3d sound.
These people seem to regard 3d as purely a sales gimmick that "failed before and now they're trying to sell it again". That couldn't be further from the truth. Stereoscopic hardware has been in development a long time and it will continue to grow and become more refined. It looks to me like there's a whole bunch of complainers out there who hate anything non-standard. I for one don't want a conventional gaming PC or multimedia experience. I've used body vibration systems for games, movies and music since the 80's, fresnel lenses and any hardware I can to increase the sense of realism.
