Its so nice to have Quality games with 3D in the title and not see it as a gimmick for a change. :)

gimmick =/= bad

gimmick is just something added to that game to make it more appealing. So, yes, 3D is a gimmick.

Well, just like motion control, if everyone else is doing it, it can't be bad when used correctly, right?

Yeah, it's a gimmick as it doesn't really offer anything substantial to the gameplay only experience.

It's one that I can actually stand tho since it isn't required or forced on you and you don't have to wear or use any silly peripherals.

Yeah usually gimmicks aren't bad but are used to milk more money than the gimmicks are worth.

That's why there's usually the option to not use them. I played tons of DS games and have been able to use the directional buttons or a/b depending on the situation and the game still be enjoyable. The same will apply here. Think they're milking 3D? Turn it off.

I meant milking money that you are paying for the 3d effects. Even if you turn the 3D off you are still paying for it.

Hm..yeah. I see your point. The Wii is guilty of this. I enjoy the Wii but it is true its too based on motion control (And WM+ sealed that).
