I played it in it's entirety in 3D.
i'd say 3D did explode and kind of puttered out. whereas VR is still getting there in mainstream popularityVR is 3D all over again. If you need to go out of your way to own and put on devices that are incompatible with the outside world, you're doing it wrong. That's why AR games on mobile work (people already use their mobiles anyway) and why 3D and VR can never truly explode. 3D was actually fun when it was around, my main issue with it is that most games used it horribly, and so did movies. Avatar was the GOAT in 3D of course, after that it was mostly disappointments. TRON: Legacy has to be the one that hurts the most: that one had every element to be INSANE in 3D, then they went and shoot the digital sequences in 2D and the 5 minutes or so in real world in 3D. I felt insulted.
That's true, but the thing with 3D is that it needed fairly expensive and specific TVs, few products supported it, and then you had to use clunky 3D glasses with 'em, which were uncomfortable for most people with glasses too and that you'd need to take off to look at your phone, to go to the other room, etc.. It was not compatible with the world surrounding you, it needed a relatively complicated setup and a lot of the major products ignored the feature altogether (most triple-A games, tons of big movies, and on TV there was barely any 3D content, plus it was at a lower resolution because it cramped two images into the same HD pixel count).
I was bummed when they stopped producing 3D TVs ;( How cool it would have been with a 77 inch model... I love the depth the movies gain. Any space scene is awesome, when you see a little spaceship and a planet in the background etc.
Really a lot more than you may want to believe. The autostereoscopic 3D made those games pop out of the screen, and some games looked like small dioramas
There were TVs with lightweight passive 3D glasses, but TVs ran at half the horizontal resolution while in 3D mode so it wasn't ideal either.My previous TV had a 3D mode and I remember one of the Black Ops (I think the second one) had 3D functionality. It was ok but the whole 3D hype came and went so fast.
The idea of wearing glasses the whole time was jarring and the Samsung ones I had weren’t even that comfortable.
