Gaming in 3D is an awesome experience. Doesn’t matter if it’s a first-person shooter or a flight simulator, the depth makes them even more awesome. Playing in stereoscopic 3D has been here for years. At first, people used to play just with simple anaglyph glasses. Later it was playing with shutter glasses with CRT monitors capable of 120Hz refresh rate. Nowadays there is a famous Oculus rift and high-quality 3D projectors. There are some games optimized for 3D – for example, Crysis 2 has a built-in option to turn on 3D and is well optimized. Don’t forget that when you are playing in 3D, your computer has to render twice as many pictures – one for the left and one for the right eye. If you are willing to play in 3D, make sure you have a high-performance computer!
