3D gaming is beastly.

I got my new monitor and 3d vision kit in today and after getting use to it... it is beastly. I have actually been replaying Portal now in 3D and it is even more insane. 3D is so awesome, I was playing L4D2 again... and I hate that game. From what I have played so far Source Engine stuff is extremely awesome... haven't tried TF2 yet... probably will tomorrow. Mafia II demo was pretty awesome in 3D, but I won't be buying the full game until it is on a really good sale :\. Just Cause 2 is pretty insane in 3D also.

Give me other games to play in this beastly way of... playing games.

But I'd think that the SS games would be a hell of a lot of fun in 3D.

Ok, how about Halo 2? Unreal 2 The Awakening? Lost Planet? Mirror's Edge?

I'd probably lose my balance and start throwing up if I played Mirror's Edge in 3D.

If you like driving games, GRiD is pretty awesome in 3D, Flat Out too. Battlefield : Bad Company 2 and Resident Evil 5 are other great 3D games.

I only have Red/Cyan goggles as don't have a 3D-capable monitor, but even then these games look great!

Some day I will have 3D Vision.... some day...

FEAR2 was great with 3D Vision. With my CRT monitor i have a lot of ghosting and i decided to put aside 3D Vision till i get a 3D monitor that have zero ghosting

the Serious Sam HD's have lots of issues in 3D (shadows messed up, wrong depth on lots of objects). Maybe the original SS's would be better but I haven't tried.

Most Unreal Engine 3 games suck in 3D Vision (Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell Conviction, Singularity) unless they are specifically made for it (Dark Void and Batman Arkham Asylum). Just another reason to hate UE3.

BFBC2 with the latest patch broke the 3D Crosshair, but you can put it back in by replacing a file. Currently playing Mafia 2 in 3D Vision Surround, now that is a game that is well-made for 3D.

Still seems like something I'd be fascinated with for about a week and then never use again. Like the Wii, only more expensive.
