How do you guys feel about 3d pc gaming?

I was just playing GW2 in 3d for a couple of hours and it got me thinking. For me, the first few minutes of 3d was definitely a wow factor. Then after a while, I noticed it just looked like a normal 2d image, so i kept increasing depth until I maxed out. Now, with it maxed out, it looks just normal again..

I'm using a 32" 3dtv as my monitor so its passive 3d at 720p. In the end, I'd rather game at 1080p with higher frames than 3d game.

How about you guys?

It can be pretty amazing on some games at 1080p60, but most of the times I'm too lazy to pull my 3D Vision glasses out and switch 3D on in NCP.

It's largely disappointing since most games do it poorly.

You know I had this feeling about the 3d in NCP so I googled it. Found out that you can just leave it on all the time. Then you just change your desktop resolution to non 3d. So all 3d capable games will automatically detect it if you enable 3d in game. No need to mess with nvidia control panel anymore just the game settings.

I'd love to see 3d at 1080p60 but as it stands, my videocard was already stuttering with gw2 at 720p. I did notice it was a bit easier to do jumping puzzles because I was more accurate at judging distance.

3D can help with immersion (even after you've gotten used to it and don't notice it as much), but it's not necessary for gaming - yet.

What TV do you have that actually has passive 3D? I know they're out there, but I've never personally run across any. I actually like the idea of passive, circular polarized 3D since shutter glasses are still not exactly ideal for me. Even with 120 Hz glasses, since it's 60 per eye, I can still get some eye strain and stuff just like I do when staring at a 60 Hz CRT.

I know you can just leave it on in NCP if you want, but it was interfering with a benchmark. Also, it was annoying having to toggle it off when I didn't want to play in 3D.

I got the Toshiba 32TL515U to use as a monitor. Unfortunately, it's discontinued.

I tried active 3d at best buy so I know what you mean about the eye strain. It's like everything is flashing or something.

It looks pretty cool for a couple minutes. The technology is still a little weird though, and it's enough to prevent me from wanting to play a game seriously with the 3D turned on. I feel like the Occulus Rift will do a better job at that.
