    I dunno. I like the 3D effect, but I don't use it all the time… Some games, I always have it on. Others, I never turn it on,

    I love the 3D effect on my N3DS. Starfox 64 3D, NSM3DL, RE:Revelations, MK7, all have 3D on all the time :)

    At first my eyes felt strained or unable to focus, but I got used to it. Also totally get what someone said above about feeling a bit weird that the 3DS is tracking your eyes :lol:

    I use the 3D on my 3DS XL, and it does occasionally add to the emersion, but it's little more than a gimmick 90% of the time. The 3DS sells well because its library is bulletproof, not because it's in 3D. To be honest I think short of inventing a full hard light holodeck a la Star Trek, no graphical gimmick is ever going to impress me.

    I don't get the appeal - everything I see everyday is in 3D. I don't run around going "Wow.... look at that pencil dude" or "That wheelie bin looks sooooo realistic"

    ... because you know that those things are real. Presumably the appeal of 3D is that it creates an illusion of an object with depth when you know that object isn't really there.

    I agree with you here. I hate when a game has lazy 3d because it can add a layer of subtle precision to your game when done well. In such a way that it doesn't take away from the game when the 3d is turned off but can add value when on.

    Can't remember word for word what Irish comedian Dara O Briein said about 3D, but it went something like:

    'We had it in the 50s, we had it in the 80s, and we're having it now in 2010 - it's a once in a generation problem, like polio, and hopefully will go away soon'

    ...Which pretty much nails it for me! :D

    I am aware of that. I was being deliberately obtuse in an attempt at humour. I apologise, it won't happen again :wacko:

    OIC. Sorry I'm not very good at spotting humour. You don't need to refrain from humour on my account ;)

    I need to try this out! I enjoyed Uncharted 3 in 3D, and excited for the newer releases being 3D compatible too!

    One thing I really like about the 3DS is rendering text boxes in a plane noticably above the game proper, especially in top-down games like Pokémon. Other than that, it does not really "wow" me, but it is still a nice to have feature.

    It's good when it's done right. Trine 2 on the PS4 looks amazing in 3D. Most other 3D games I've tried just have a half-arsed 'layered' effect. Some don't even have that - they just put depth between the HUD and the game. The game itself (the polygonal 3D environment) is as one flat, 2D layer.

    You have hit the nail on the head with that one. I HATE it when a game that's not meant to be in 3D says it's 3D. It's such a waste of time and the layered effect just ruins the entire game from the beginning for me.

    I absolutely love my N3DS and I play all my games with the 3D slider turned all the way up. It's really hard to explain how 3D makes a lot of difference in 3DS games. It literally puts "depth" in the gameplay :D
