What is it with the "3D" bullcrap?

I can't believe they are pulling the same crap they did with the Nintendo 64 by naming half of the games with the 64 on the end of the title, and they are doing it again for the 3DS. I mean, just by looking at the Top 10 list on Gamefaqs you can already see Metal Gear 3D, Kingdom Hearts 3D, Starfox 3D and Legend of Zelda 3D. Come on, how come they didn't do that crap for the Gamecube? I've never heard of a game for the Gamecube that had that type of title, I saw it on the SNES, N64, GBA and Wii, but not for the Gamecube... and now they are doing it for the 3DS.

And why is it such a big deal to have games on "3D"? I thought 3D was already created when the Sega Saturn, N64 and Playstation were out.

There is a difference between 3D games and stereoscopic 3D graphics, the 3DS will display 3D in the same way that Avatar and other movies do but without the need to wear stupid glasses.

Well, most of these names are pending, so I wouldn't worry about it too much...

Though I wouldn't expect to see many companies pass up the chance to name third installments "3D". >_> Kind of like the "D___ S___" theme of the original DS.
Unyu! Unya!

1. They mean 3D as in "popping out of the screen"
2. The names aren't finalized so don't get your panties in a bunch

The 3DS actually has a 3D Screen, they're not just calling it 3D because it can produce three dimensional character models.

Furthermore, as others have said, those are just place-holder names.
I imagine Bethesda's Quality Testing Department a big, dusty room filled with cobwebs, and a chimp wearing a Fez banging on the keyboard of a single computer...
