A Look Back At 3D Console Gaming

In case you haven't heard, gamers are really, really interested in playing video games in 3D. At least that's what we're constantly being told by PR reps, anyway. From Nintendo's newly debuted 3DS to Sony's line of 3D-ready HDTVs, a large portion of the industry believes 3D will play an important role in the future of video games. But for veteran gamers the promise of 3D gaming is nothing new; developers have been trying to create stereoscopic games for more than 20 years, to varying (though usually dismal) levels of success. Join us for a look back at the best and worst attempts at 3D gaming.

Re: A Look Back At 3D Console Gaming

Wow... all of those look like massive failures, I hope Nintendo has learned from their failures (and the failures of others) otherwise the 3DS will be horrible.

Re: A Look Back At 3D Console Gaming

Any one ever try the SegaScope 3-D? How were they? I wanted a pair when I was 12. Luckily the store never stocked them.

Re: A Look Back At 3D Console Gaming

I actually have another game that needs to be listed:
Metal Gear Acid 2 had the option to play in 3D using some weird "Solid Eye" thing you attached to the PSP, or you could just cross your eyes so the two images shown matched up and you saw both in one image, forcing your eyes to perceive depth due to the two slightly different images.


This is the Solid Eye, a cardboard box basically.

The 3D is similar to this in nature, hard to view by crossing your eyes, but it can be done. Easier on a smaller screen like the PSP.

Re: A Look Back At 3D Console Gaming

The very first game mentioned in that article (World Runner 3D) was the first game I played on these sites.
